There was milk, water, tea and coffee on our arrival and also dishwasher tablets and washing machine tablets. The apartment was spotless and cleaned regularly and clean towels supplied. The gardens... More

Cannot fault this place. Clean, spacious apartments. Children's and adult pool. Short walk to beach/bars. Clive's cocktail bar very friendly. All the restaurants were good. Book! You won't be disappointed.

We were visiting for a family wedding, so there were various family and friends all in the EDL. We had a 3 bed apartment so my dad, who is 82, wouldn't have to have his own room, and my sister also shared. My husband & I had the room with the en suite, which was huge. There was so much... More

We had booked a 2 bedroomed self catering and received a 3 bedroomed one which we fell in love with instantly. It was huge!
