Just returned from a week at 2 Gallinas Point (also known as Morveren). The apartment was well fitted out throughout and was spacious in the bedrooms (though not in the living room / kitchen diner - although it is let as accommodating 4 people there is lounge seating for a maximum of 3 - one two-seater sofa and one tub chair).
Although publicity shots show a car parked outside the front of the apartment this is misleading as the allocated parking is to the rear of the property and is EXTREMELY tight especially if you have a 2-door car. The parking area is described as secure however this too is a half truth as it is openly used as a walk through by the general public, vehicle access being controlled by way of retractable bollards (there is a main entry point with a barrier pole however the security key fob for Morveren that is provided doesn't give access via this entrance).
The biggest problem encountered was that of noise, with more than one rowdy party and much screaming and shouting from children persisting into the early hours - and that was just on 'everyday' nights.
Although the apartment was clearly very well finished originally, by the time of visiting it was beginning to show signs of neglect and wear and tear.
