Even the more affordable Premium categories offer apartments where you can stay with up to five or even eight family members. The apartments have sea views if requested, and some a terrace or a small garden with parasol, chairs and hammock to relax. But the greatest luxury awaits you in the Royal Terrace Apartment (max. five occupants) with its own jacuzzi on the private terrace.
The Mini Club looks after your children during the day and organises competitions and other games. For a fee, you can also book a babysitter overnight. In the evening you can enjoy an entertainment programme for young and old.
