We went with our 1-1/2 years old kid, which was the reason we looked for accomodation in a place like this, with kitchen facilities and near the sea.
The residence is organised like a small village, with small 1 or 2 floors buildings where each apartment has its own entrance and small patio/garden. There are green areas and a pool.
We had chosen the basic category of apartment, which was comfortable and clean, and large enough to add a bed for the kid. We had a small terrace just outside our door with a table and chairs, which was very nice to have breakfast and to drink a beer in the evening. The kitchen was equipped with all the necessary, and the bathroom was comfortable and clean. I've seen other categories of apartments seem to offer more space and/or better view, but the price difference can be hefty.
Service at the reception is kind and helpful, you can always ask them for information. Wifi is available in the reception area.
The nearest beach is a couple of minutes trip by car down the hill (or you can go on foot, but be prepared for the sun and dust and the steep way back up) and it's very nice, with clear low water, clean sand and a friendly bar.
There are two restaurants very near, one on the premises (BBQ) and the other on the beach (La Tavernetta). Both are rather expensive; at BBQ we had a nice meal for about 70 euros both, their specialties are mostly grilled meat but they do have some delicious fish. La Tavernetta is supposed to be a fish specialist, but to be frank we were not enthused by the quality and quantity of the dishes, and we spent almost 100 euros. Much better deals elsewhere (e.g., at "La Conchiglia" in the nearby Porto San Paolo).
Other beaches are not far. There are some very beautiful ones at Capo Coda Cavallo, 10-15 minutes by car, but you have to get up early to find a place as they tend to be crowded and parking space is limited.
I liked best: the location, for the view and the evening breeze, and the fact of feeling like at home.
I liked least: the mattress of the bed, as the room had actually two single beds pushed together, so the mattress tended to move and leave a gap in the middle. But ok, I believe that makes for a flexible solution whether the tenants are a couple or just two friends.
