This is a good family hotel, with lots of daily activities to keep the kids busy for hours on end (mostly 5-10 year olds) The location is fantastic, right on the beach (a blue gag status beach nogal) It's a all inclusive package hotel (save for drinks, which are reasonably priced) so leave the belt at home and bring along...
