Editor’s choice

In our opinion, Club Marine Palace & Suites is a great solution if you want to spend your holidays with your family and not spend an impressive amount. The administration tried to take into account everything so that adults and children were better than at home: exquisitely decorated apartments, minimal distance from entertainment venues and bathing areas, leisure under any wrought.

Planning a vacation when the travel season is over? In such a case, a pool protected from external influence is provided, which completely replaces swimming in the sea.
