Property was very dirty, very poor cleaning, smelt of stale cooking smells, couch very hard and uncomfortable, light bulbs blown and need replaced, cutlery/cups and plates all in cupboard dirty. Towels very thin. Overall very very disappointing for the price.

We wouldnt stay here again. The overall condition of the property was poor. Toaster didn't work and when we went to reception, it wasnt open and in fact no one was around for hours. Overpriced for what it is

well equipped apartment close to the beach

Pros: location, close to the beach and that we had everything we needed for our stay.
Cons: fittings starting to look a little tired and worn
Location: short walk to the beach great for swimming and walking along the beach but it is a drive to any shops.
no sea view with ground floor apartment but nice and private. Well situated for the beach with a short walk down the driveway and across the road.
