After last years visit, we booked again a month after we got home and this time for two weeks from 18th Jan. From booking to arrival at the hotel all went smoothly. We stayed at Sofel, North Gatwick terminal and left our car with them, and it was in the same place and not moved.

For the price we paid, this place was fantastic!!! Great food, always chairs available anytime of day by pool or beach, very safe-even outside the resort feels safe to go for a walk/run. Especially loved the sports bar after dinner for a good game of pool and some munchies

We visited this resort twice in 2018 with our party of 6 (including 3 kids). We had a lovely time both visits, but I will say it is far from a "luxury" resort, and people should be aware of this before booking. The grounds are fine, very clean but beginning to get a bit worn.

"Room 1131 was ground level, close to everything. The view was of the gardens, pool, & entertainment."
"Rooms facing the courtyard have the only view of the property. Rooms facing out overlook roof tops and parking lots"
"be sure to stay far away from the disco."
"rooms on the exterior of building are quieter"
"Our standard room had 2 double beds (sized like a single and a half). Not comfortable for 3 adults. If you want comfort, get a family room."
US$167 - US$345 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
