Reading all the reviews prior to arriving I thought it sounded too good to be true.. But it wasn't! It was superb, and I agree with all the comments here. My family and I were so impressed, there wasn't one thing we could fault. The views, the service, the location, this list could just go on. The moment we arrived... More

We got the contact from our friends who have stayed there during their last vacation. The apartment is clean & fully equipped with the necessities. Our view from our apartment is wonderful & we are always welcome by the nice sea view every morning! My family members have a great time there & we will certainly come back again :)
