We’ve just got back from a weeks stay in this apartment.
Really impressed, the apartment is brand new, very spacious and really well equipped with good quality furnishings and decor, it was very clean and tidy when we got there. The owners provided good directions and left a good comprehensive information pack. Everything about the apartment and area was just as described.
The location was excellent, just right for us. Very quiet in the evenings. The nearest restaurants, convenience store and bars are only a 5-minute walk away, and they put on some entertainment in the evening (quizzes, karaoke, singers). English spoken everywhere locally.
Not really necessary to have a car, although the nearest supermarkets are too far to comfortably walk (15 mins), though only 5 mins by car. The nearest beach is also a 10-minute drive away
The area is mostly residential; many friendly British people live around living permanently.
2 decent pools close by – only a minutes walk, only for residents use, so never got overcrowded, even though we went in school holiday time we always got a shady spot.
Overall we had a great time, the sun terrace is a real bonus, and it’s got air conditioning, which really is a must in the summer.
We have 2 young children; it was absolutely perfect for us. If you were looking for a ‘all night raves and nightclubs’ type of place, this probably wouldn’t suit, but for a quiet family holiday, it was just right.
The town is only a short drive or bus/cab ride away, lots of good late night bars and restaurants there. Plenty to do around the local area (markets, water park, water sports, go-carts) but you would need car to get out and about.
Easy to get to from the airports
Good value for money, we would recommend to anyone, we would definitely go back.
