Condo/Apartment /
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
Two-level penthouse with stunning 180-degree views of the beach, in brand new eight-storey building completed in 2007.

We absolutely loved this apartment. The apartment itself is very well decorated but it's the view that makes it. It's in a great location, directly across from the beach where you can watch the fishing boats come in and out. The only con is lack of Wi-Fi which you would expect in such a modern apartment.
