We were not disappointed!! The house and facilities were fantastic. Our children loved spending time in the pool and we loved spending time in the Hot Tub!! The extra special treat was having a Samba football goal on the grass by the house. We spent hours playing! The house was amazing with plenty of room for all of us! The kids loved watching DVDs in the evening and we loved chatting in the kitchen or being in the Hot Tub. The weather was also perfect so we spent lots of time on the balcony just relaxing. Everything you needed was in the house. We were sorry to be leaving but we certainly will be back! Thank you to Alex and Chris for making this break very special!
