    We had a wonderful time (5 nights) at the hotel. High standard accomodation, excellent food, good price/quality ratio, comfortable and clean rooms, beautiful garden with all kinds of animals and the staff creates a professional en friendly environment. Overall, very satisfied. Score: 11/10. #PURAVIDA

    Don't let first impressions put you off... the reception/car park area is shabby and desperately needs updating. Our room is also a little dated, especially the bathroom, and the cleaner does the bare minimum. Having said that, we are enjoying the relaxed, family friendly atmosphere....More

    We stayed with our two kids in (12 an 15) in a family suite with two large double beds. It was quite spacious so I Think you couldn't easily get two extra beds in the room. Best wishes. Peter.
