Hotel facilities are as impressive as its location.  A choice of restaurants and bars as well as two swimming pools, with an additional two especially for kids, offers opportunities for languid lounging or swimming and a range of water sports.  The warm, clear Mediterranean will appeal to those who prefer the ocean and will certainty prove attractive to diving and snorkelling enthusiasts while sun worshippers on the sandy beach can relax or indulge in beach volleyball.  Indoor games include pool or get in a few rubbers on the tennis court.  A more strenuous workout can be experienced on the football and multipurpose sports court. If that sounds too much like hard work.
