We stayed in Apartment 17. It was ideal for the two of us. The apartment was spotlessly clean and freshly painted - but apparently they keep on top of the painting regularly - so it always looks pristine. The items of furniture were modern and in good condition. The bed was comfortable. Whilst not the most luxurious place to stay, it was comfortable, clean and very convenient.
The managers Trevor & Pippa were ideal hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend booking trips through them as they seem to know EVERYTHING!
Back to the apartment, we had a small balcony overlooking the pool and the pool was ideal to visit after a trip to the beach as the sun shone on the deck next to the pool most of the afternoon. The pool was small but very nice and clean.
We would suggest the only 2 things that possibly warrants a slight moan would be the shower head in the bathroom which kept moving about as you were under the shower. We never mentioned this to Trevor though - but perhaps we should have done so, as we are sure he would have sorted it. Also the wireless internet we found expensive - it was though Jimojo and we had no difficulty logging ON - but lots of difficulty logging Off - which makes sense as Jimojo WANT you to waste your money as you pay for the minutes spent online.
The apartments are very central to shops, cafe's and they are dead centre of town for the 4 mile beach at one end and the harbour at the other.
We didn't do any cooking - except to make a cup of coffee or tea or a Gin & Tonic. However, the cupboard was well stocked with utensils and crockery and catered for 4.
It was very good value for money and we would recommend it to anyone thinking about staying there.
