We very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment, which had many good points. Although close to the airport (and providing great plane-spotting opportunities from the roof terrace!) the noise did not disturb us.
The roof terrace is huge, with views in almost every direction, and we watched some wonderful sunsets while there, and really enjoyed the privacy, as it is totally private and not overlooked. The cushions for the loungers were very grubby, but we were happy to use them with towels on top. For longer stays, where you are expected to launder your sheets & towels a line for drying would have been very useful, as one rather broken plastic airer on the balcony wasnt really sufficient. We didnt use the barbecue, as it was pretty large, and would have needed a lot of charcoal to really get going, which didnt seem worth it for 2 people.
The beds were no more than ok, as the mattresses were lumpy in places, but a bit of jiggling achieved a reasonably comfortable position. Plenty of wardrobe space with lots of hangers, and some shelves, but no drawers. There is no air-conditioning in the bedroom, but the ceiling fan was quite enough for us.
The bathroom was getting rather tired, with old fashioned tiles, but a good water pressure from the shower, and we always had plenty of hot water. It didnt look as though it had had a really thorough clean recently, with some dirt & fluff in corners & crevices, but was basically clean.
We catered for ourselves the majority of the time, and there is a full size oven and halogen hob, plus microwave, kettle, filter coffee maker & toaster. The microwave did seem to be rather temperamental, and we seemed to have to unplug it to reset it on occasion. It would have been handy to have oven gloves. Cooking equipment was ok and adequate, but not plentiful.
There is a nice large balcony with table & chairs, and a wind-out awning, which can provide welcome shade in the middle of the day, but we almost got caught out, as we had some very windy conditions, and it is more than a two person job to get it back in again safely in strong wind, so make sure you take it in before going out, in case the wind rises.
There is no dining table inside, just the breakfast bar with stools. Cream fabric was not a good choice for these as they were badly marked. Air-conditioning unit in the living area worked well, though we used it very infrequently. We did like having an option to watch British TV channels on quiet nights in, and the TV is a modern flat screen.
We stayed for 3 weeks, and the welcome note was slightly ambiguous about sheet & towel changing. It said that a spare set of everything would be provided for stays over 3 weeks, which ours wasnt, so we didnt query it until halfway through, when no fresh linen had been delivered.
The washing machine was a boon, as we pack very light. I particularly appreciated the rapid wash - ideal for freshening up swimwear and running clothes.
Overall, a very pleasant apartment - not super luxurious, but comfortable and in a nice quiet location with wonderful views (although the abandoned
building projects are a bit of a blight, unfortunately). We would happily return, maybe taking a few more items with us to supplement what is there, now that we know.
