The onsite grocery shop is ideally placed and its freshly made pastries and breads will satisfy all ages. The Pool Hangout is central to the resort where the M-Bar serves snacks, light meals and drinks. Here, there is an additional pool and children’s pool with water slides. Parents can lounge by the pool whilst children enjoy the wendy house fashioned out a VW Campervan, outdoor trampoline and gelato parlour. Whilst parents may enjoy the number of golf courses, shops and cafes around the resort, children are happily entertained by the children’s club for ages 6 months to 8 years. The children’s club provides fun and educational games whilst the resort’s Blue Room offers entertainment for children and teens with computer games, football tables and table tennis.
