While a little hard to find, the sign on the road has disappeared, the apartments were lovely and comfortable for our family and the pool was fantastic. It was an extraordinarily hot period, so the fans struggled in the heat, but we really enjoyed our stay. We would have liked to have seen a slightly better stocked kitchen to make... More
