We stayed in a 2 bed apartment with roof terrace and there was plenty of space for our family of six! The facilities and complex are top notch and my only negatives would be the early closing of the bar/restaurant and the lack of an essentials shop as it is a fair but pleasant return trip walking to the shops...
