We stayed here self catering for 6 nights at the end of September and it was a great little find. The apartment was spotless, spacious and very well equipped. I believe the apartments are only serviced once a week as ours wasn't serviced at all during our stay but we're tidy enough so it was OK! There was WIFI in... More

We have previously stayed in the hotel but chose this year to stay in the Residence. Our two-bed apartment was spacious, clean and well-furnished, with a side view of the Ria from the balcony. The kitchen was generously equipped (six saucepans!) but lacked some more basic items such as a juicer - just a plastic one would have done! But... More

Hotel and apartments perfect in every way. 1/2 board and food outstanding. at breakfast everything including fresh baked bread and fresh cut fruit. Presentation was paramount for the evening meals and food tasted as good as it looked. The staff are lovely,... More

The residence is really easy to find, perfectly located by the marina with fantastic views including beautiful sunrises and sunsets we could enjoy from our balcony. The 3 bedroom apartment we stayed in was very spacious with three double bedrooms, one en-suite, one bathroom and and an extra separate toilet. The kitchen was well equipped (no colander though as previously... More

We are surprised to find it is a 5 star hotel, but with an apartment for 4 people just 52 euro in total, each one only 13 euro, It is unbelievable! In the same street you can find lots of quality/price restaurant. And it is convenient to take ship to visit the wonderful sands island.

Pros – At the outset, I will say that the apartment in itself was very modern, spacious and clean. All the amenities were available and the balcony dining was a great feature. However, as a previous reviewer pointed out, little things like cleaning cloth, tea towel, tissues, dishwasher tablets, detergents were all missing and you would need to come prepared... More

My friend and I stayed in a two bed apartment in December. We checked in at the hotel and a polite young member of staff showed us to our apartment and also handled our luggage. On entering the apartment I was astonished at the space. It was very luxurious and one bedroom was en-suite with a bath. Tastefully decorated,, massive... More

Stayed here for 3 night short break. The apartment was modern and clean apart from the mouldy shower.! I had read on some reviews that the beds were hard so I emailed and ask for a mattress topper which I was told would be on the bed when we arrived but it wasn't. The bed was quite firm but not...
