    Hi

    I think the issue is the room will take 2 adults and 2 kids max and your kids are over the child age

    There are other hotels with TUI available - 6 when i looked - that will take you all in one oom

    As stated before I cant beat TUI on late deals so book direct

    I did check T Cooks for other destinations but all full now

    I have sent you a PM

    Hi Monkey2801

    Sorry i took a while to reply but its a complicated quote as most of my suppliers don't have the internal flights available and the one that did dint have Unico available so I can't beat this
    I have stayed at UNICO though - it's amazing - I had a swim up room - so feel free to call me for tips

    I have sent you a PM
