Our bedroom was a bit squashed with having a double bed and 2 single beds in it. But apart from that the accommodation was great

Absolutely no shelves or cupboards in the bathroom was a bit of a pain. Beds were pretty good; we had a upstairs room overlooking the pool which was great for us relaxing while the kids played.
