We had a fantastic 3-bedroom apartment and this could not have been better. Fresh, clean and new with everything you need. Dishwasher and Washing machine included. Wifi is free and works well. A good, modern TV with a good channel offer. Beds are a bit hard, but I slept ok.
The outside area was very good, with plenty of space and sunbeds by the many pools. There is also a supermarked close by in walking distance, where you get most of what you need. Parking the car under the apartments is smart and safe. The only thing I would mention to be aware of, is that the location is a bit "all by itself", as other have written. You will need a car to see something else if you like that. That being said, if you only look at googlemaps summer 2014, the whole area looks very deserted. In reality much have happened since and the CS-management should get some areal pictures taken to show that the area now is much more habitated.
Another thing worth mentioning, is the Italian restaurant Mamma Mia located in hotel Vidamar between the beach and the appartments. When we asked in our reception at CS, they did not think that other than guests at that hotel would be allowed to dine there, but of course - they are more than happy to take any guest. Fantastic service there and really good food as well. We did not try any of the CS restaurants, except for the pool-bar, where we got some under-cooked burgers ...
The beach is really close - just 10 min walk. The water was too cold when we stayed, so we stuck to the pools.
I played golf at the local course, which was good. Easy walking there too.
