The position and the view was the best feature of this accommodation with easy access to the beach. However the room was average for the price and the biggest let down was that there is no Wi-Fi available so I used up a lot of data which I wasn't too happy about.

When in the bay, this is where we choose to stay, must say we were a little disappointed with the condition of the grounds. The property was badly in need of mowing, especially outside the units and around the pool.
