Great apartment close to everything.

Pros: Pools and access to the beach & room
Cons: Attitude of one of the bar staff addressing guests as "mate" at every interaction, it came across as quite dismissive.
Location: Great location to beach and places to eat.
Had a great 2 night stay, in a Ocean view apartment. Pools and spa were excellent.

Very relaxing!

Pros: Friendly staff, heated pool, closeto everything.
Location: Beach, restaurants, street of shops, heated pool
Loved staying here. Went with my young daughters. The staff are so friendly and accommodating with children. Such a refreshing change for a luxury hotel. It was rainy weather and we still loved it. The pool was heated so we could swim. I could also have a glass of wine and read my book while watching the kids in the pool. Restaurants just down stairs so we didnt have to walk far. Wall of glass leading out to the balcony so we could watch the rain. The beach just across the street so we could pop on down in bursts of sunshine. We had a large spa in our room and a king size bed. Also my girls thought the free muffins, toast, fruit and a hot chocolate for breakfast was amazing. Loved it. I was very relaxed.
