Great to be back after 2yrs , late flight from Uk arrived early hours again seamless booking to villa1008 great location to beach and getting about the resort. Still a great place to relax meet and family who live there. Never ventured out of the resort as everything there. Infinity pools great addition to the resort. Only moan is the reduced restaurants on the half board compared to our last visit but understand with COVID but hopefully next visit resort should be back to normal. Thankyou DAM staff for being great making my holiday pain free , polite , friendly and one of the reasons we always come back. See you all very soon. Read less
