Up against a very large number of renowned and quality hotel brands, it is clear that we offer something really special to our guests – who return with their families time and time again. Our fascinating kids programmes are driven by passion and the constant will to further innovate. I am extremely proud to be part of a team that is pushing the boundaries of this important part of our resort philosophy on a daily basis.”
