If you are traveling with children, the extensive family pool offers plenty of fun and the integrated restaurant is ideal for a family lunch without having to walk far.
For a quieter lunch, the Azure restaurant offers a variety of delicacies, and the atmosphere gives off an authentic Mediterranean flair.
The chef’s specialty the Asian chicken salad is certainly recommended as a light lunch. The hotel offers a variety of dining options, so make sure to leave enough space for what is yet to come.
