Smugglers was a fantastic and surprisingly good destination. We had a beautiful, spotless and roomy apartment, supplied with all you could need for an extended comfortable stay. One of the best value for money locations we have encountered on the coast.

We had booked a one-bedroom apartment and found on arrival that we had been upgraded to a two bedroom one. The ground floor apartment was comfortable and very well-equipped with everything we needed for a fortnight's stay. Linen and towels were changed at the mid-way point of our holiday. The walk to the beach is about two minutes. An item... More
