Many thanks for reviewing your holiday, and great to see the same families returning. We think the pool setting is important too, and glad we had it built conveniently near the house so that everyone can enjoy it together; especially useful if you have children of course. We do hope you visit us again in 2012.

Many thanks for this great review. Lots of guests intend to visit places but end up just lazing by the pool, you sound as if you really had a good look around!

We hope to see you again.
