Fantastic staff, particularly Dominika who hugely helped me with kids breakfast. I thought the attitude of all staff I interacted with was admirable and friendly. The pool area on level 9 was great too. Lovely large rooms and sea views

The only criticism which I forgot to report is the air conditioning in Room 247 did not cool the room - at night it was cooler outside.
