Great Location. Exellent Food.
Lahr Günter Nov 2016
We had the best time as a family, thoroughly enjoyed their activities. The staff is friendly. The buffet meals are delicious. Our daughter made new friends since they had a kiddies programme everyday and a dining room for kids. They even baked a cake for her birthday, sang to her and that was awesome. We will go back to create more special memories.
