The location of the apartment is perfect. Fantastic views of the sea and area. The lift access to the street makes accessing the bars, restaurant and beach much easier. The pool area was clean and peaceful and the apartment itself was a real home from home. Would definitely return to this apartment and to the area

We ( 2 adults and 2 kids) spend 2 weeks in this fantastic apartaments with fabiloues ocean view. The apartment was clean and tidy and you got everything what you need. We really felt like in home. The ocean is just 2 minutes walk, the nearest shop about 5 minutes. I hope we will return there again in next year😎.
