It is possible to walk around the complex to reach lovely beaches, access the pool with an amazing view and acess a playground. There are lunch restaurants at teh pool or on the beach which are convenient for quick simple lunches. Isabel was really kind and accomodating and provided two travel cots as well as two children high-chairs. The house is clean and well maintained. There is one big master bedroom with ensuite bathroom, two other double rooms (all with twins beds) and the fourth bedroom is located outside the house with its own shower room. Everything is convenient and pleasant for children as the main living is spacious and everything is on the same floor The only downside is there is no wifi connexion but you can access it through the reception hotel or restaurants nearby. It is an enjoyable experience which we can recommend for families with young children.
