A wonderful visit
We had a really fantastic stay at Medina Palms. The villa/ hotel has great pools, a lovely beach in front and superb cuisine. Max who runs it, is outstanding. The surrounding area and getting there has its challenges but all in all highly recommended. ”
We had a great time. The manager and staff were wonderful. It was hot during the noon and mid-day but very nice late afternoon and evening. Plenty to do and the beach was great.”
