We stayed here between Christmas and New Year 2012. Unfortunately we didn't get one of the waterfront apartments, so our view was of the back of the petrol station next door - not very attractive but a nice outside sitting area nonetheless.
The apartment itself was spotless, although the lino floor might do with replacing. It had obviously been cleaned but still looked and felt sticky. Plenty of room for a couple alone, fully functional kitchen including dishwasher (although you need a Ph.D. to operate the multi-functional oven - just phone reception and ask for help). Sky Movies on the TV was a bonus for the odd rainy day. Nice spacious bathroom.
Air conditioning is in the main living area only but if you leave all the windows closed the cool air circulates eventually. We found opening a few windows kept us perfectly cool in the nighttime despite it being in the mid to high 20s all day.
Although it is on the main drag, we didn't find the street noise at all bad. The main thing I could hear was the sound of the waves on the beach.
