Firstly, let me say that I would return here in a heartbeat. The location is spot on for the beach which is accessed across a quiet road/carpark.
The apartment itself was spacious but was starting to feel its age. As some reviewers have already mentioned, the 'spa bath' should be taken with a pinch of salt. It does have spa jets but is not really something you can lie back an relax in.
The rest of the apartment was generally well appointed with flat screen tv and dvd player but the kitchen was something of a let down. The oven was the main area of concern. It never seemed to get up to a reasonable temperature and an attempt to cook a roast dinner nearly failed when the joint of beef took 2.5 hrs just to cook to 'rare' when it should have been done in 1.5 hours!
On a more positive note, the block does have a small but well heated pool and a sauna as well has secure parking and when we reported that the tumble dryer was not working properly it was replaced with a new one the following day.
