There are lots of places to eat within an easy walk. The train is a short walk and the beach can be walked to within 15 minutes at... More

I have stayed here numerous times and always asked for one of the apartments above the reception with the huge balconies when we travelled with friends and young children. The kids can play football or run after each other they are so spacious. Always found the staff to be pleasant and you are close enough or far enough away from... More

We were here for the first time for a week's stay. Every room has a kitchenette and a balcony, we faced south with a view of the garden, tennis court and the huge pool. Neat, clean, quiet and for those who want to hit the town it is close enough. Mind you the Strip is only one hundred meters away.... More
