Fantastic resort and holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish Henry and his team made this holiday very easy . We were met immediately at the airport by taxi then guided through check in and arrival at the resort by oona who was very helpful . The arrival hamper was very generous and everything we might require was provided . The apartment and resort were spotless . The best children's club I have ever encountered . Santa Maria is only a taxi ride away at 3 euros and great fun . We will definitely be back .
