Very spacious apartment with fantastic views. Pool and spa were a favourite treat in the middle of winter. Whole family were at home here and did not want to leave. The kids are asking when we can visit again. Helpful and very friendly staff. Can't wait to come back.

As each apartment was individually owned the standard of modernisation varied. The heated pool area is lovely and was well used by us. It was nice to have a spa pool attached to... More
