Comfortably sleeping 6 with 2 ensuite bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen, air conditioning and a balcony and the added suprise of a decent size pool with... More

The Elma apartments are a good size, are clean and well equipped, Terese on reception was fantastic, a little note...reception closes at 7.30pm so if you are due to arrive after that arrange with reception a time for her to collect keys etc., There are no good views from these apartments you are just looking at more buildings, the pool...
