On phoning a very helpful young man gave us good directions, We were very lucky... More

Great accommodation and amenities, everything was nice and clean and ready for us upon arrival. Close to the city centre, with a few handy shops within walking distance (i.e. pharmacy/supermarkets), and along the way to the city, great view of the ocean and landscapes. Spacious rooms with comfortable furnishings. Everything provided within the unit, also secure car parking. They helped... More
