“Rooms have fantastic sea view-spoiled by wall in front of balcony, about four feet high. Appreciate this is for safety, but does not have to be brick. Also gate to beach continually padlocked security?”

“There was alot of steps on the way to our apartment which would not be suitable for elderly or disabled, its better to request a room close to reception.”
