The hotel offers a wide and varied programme of entertainment for children, teenagers and adults. Six times a week there is a varied programme of sports and other well-known games. Darts, boccia and shuffleboard are also appreciated by the less-active and even the sun-worshippers let themselves be beguiled by our first class paella and sangria and by the fashion show. We have also thought about the children with our children’s programme on the playground and in the Mini club (only during school holidays). In the evening: watch one of the hotel’s shows on the terrace – e.g. Grease, or others. If you want to show your acting talent you may also join in one of the musicals.
