We arrived late at night and on entering the apartment found that it had a strong smell of smoke also the sheets on the bed were a little damp. We awoke the next morning to find that the doors and windows were covered in condensation. There were also damp patches on areas of the walls around the appartment. However as... More

We noticed it when we first moved in, and by the time we left it was threatening... More

This Resort is excellent. The facilities are first class, the accommodation excellent, the Leaseholder of the Bar is obnoxious. If you are considering this Resort do not book if "Les" is still in charge.
