How we use cookies 

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. The file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. For example, to remember which pages you have visited and what you have chosen, when making a booking. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes, by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. By using this website, you agree to the use of cookies.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes, and then the data is removed from the system.

We also use Google Adwords to advertise to past guests, whom we feel will be interested in our holidays, products or services because they stayed at our resorts before. You can switch off Google Adwords on your browser if you wish.

Another way in which cookies are used is through Google Analytics.
