“Very good value, no frills but very lovely”
Reviewed June 25, 2009

This place is simply a group of 3 self catering apartments. They are airconditioned with en-suite bathrooms, large safes, and well kitted out kitchenettes. They have fantastic views directly onto the sea and along the beach. They are not a hotel. You come here to get away from the bad service and expensive prices of the hotels. The bathrooms have lots of space and the shower has great pressure from a large rose-head. This is not 5 star luxury, but it is clean and peaceful. The cleaning lady is really lovely and helpful and she would clean and iron our clothes for us as well as keep the apartment in spotless condition. If you don't want to watch other peoples kids screaming around a hotel pool and like things simple, I would recommend this as a great place to come. Great value as well.
