We were staying in a Villa fairly close by and I went there to see if they knew anyone that would do car hire services. The receptionist was very helpful and even went to the trouble to call the car hire company and get them to come and pick me up to discuss contracts. While I waited she kindly said... More

Dave-Loretta. We had a great relaxing holiday and thought the staff, service, food and apartments and the magnificent pool were better than some 4 star hotels.

Great value apartments with extremely friendly staff, a lovely pool area and sports bar. We went all inclusive and there was a very good choice of food, much of it cooked freshly to order. Soft drinks available all day and good choice of beer, wine and spirits from 1pm.

I stayed at the apartments but wished I had booked into the Hotel as it was decidedly better with balcony's overlooking the pool. the studio flats have no... More

Very good apartments. Clean, spacious detached bungalow. Ample car parking. 5 minute walk to a nice clean beach. Bar area and restaurant spacious with good food. We arrived about 10pm with 2 small children and feared the restaurant would be closed but they served us a good pizza. We visited in October half-term so the days were a nice temperature... More
