This was a perfect self catering place to stay. After reading the bad reviews I was nervous, especially staying on my own with my 4 year old. All the... More

Was looking for a cheap get away. Read the reviews on trip advisor but didn't experience any of the negatives mentioned. Apartments were clean, pool looked clean although we never used it. Only once was reception not staffed but the bar is next door and it took me 10 secs to find someone, guess they were watching Worldcup football match.... More

Been at this apartment for nearly a week now (going home tomorrow) the room is basic, the beds are like rocks and the showers are like little dirty cubicals in a cramped bathroom! The management staff are extremely rude especially the baldish man at reception and the really skinny blonde lady with curly hair, both extremely rude and shouldn't be... More

The apartments are a little bit dated but very clean and had a lovely big balcony with sun loungers and a table and chairs. The staff on reception were... More

Kitchen had 2 rings a plentiful pots & pan & crockery, fridge with a small freezer section. Bathroom was basic , functional shower, sink, wc.... More
