Positiv: Sehr schöne Anlage, Personal immer freundlich, Alles sehr sauber. zu bemängeln: Jede Kleinigkeit (z.bsp Wasser) kostet extra, Preise für Drinks, Bier, Kaffee etc. so hoch wie in der Schweiz. Strandtücher konnte man nicht einfach beziehen, das Personal wollte jedesmal mit den Tüchern zum Sonnenschirm mitkommen. Das fand ich schon ein wenig kompliziert
