    I have come across the Holiday Village Resort which looks like a good place where I can be with my family.

    The main aim for my holiday is to spend some time with my family, so I would like the resort to be at a calm place, have the regular services and facilities like gym, pool and a good restaurant.

    The property looks quite big from the pictures but there is no such idea of exactly how big it is. I would also like to know what the size of the swimming pool and gym is.

    As we are a family who likes being outdoors, we would like to have some of our meals outside, is this possible at the Holiday Village Resort?
