Our family stayed in one of the extremely good apartments for 10 nights.
The apartment overlooked the pool and had stunning sea views from the long balcony, which also caught the sun from early morning until about 7pm.
The staff were very friendly and the apartments kept very clean, with sheets changed and fresh towels regularly provided.
There are plenty of sunbeds provided around the pool which is a great size for the number of apartments.
There is a very convenient supermarket within a 2 minute walk and a lovely bakery approximately 5 minutes away.
The apartments are really well situated to the beach and old town, with about a 15 minute walk to get there there. The walk to and from was no bother for us or the children (11 and 6 years).
The only downside was the level of noise after the mainly dutch, mainly male, occupants returned in the early hours from their night out. There was constant running around the corridors, door buzzers being sounded, doors being slammed and screaming at the top of voices from around 3.30am until 5am. On one evening it was so bad, and the girls so annoyed that I resorted to confronting them after which they did quieten down. This raised complaints from ourselves and other families on the premises over two nights, which staff tried their best to deal with and apologised sincerely. Unfortunately there is no staff permanently on the premises overnight, so there is little to be done at the time.
It does seem to be very popular with groups of young males, so whilst it is a great spot location and facility wise- be warned!!
