Beautiful resort - fabulous apartment!This was an excellent apartment with every facility you could wish for (including washing machine and tumble dryer)! Pools are nice but a little 'squashed in' with little space around them to sit. Wi-Di is appalling - don't rely on it!!!

Great Location but the insides are a bit tiredWe stayed there for 3 nights in October and had a good stay - air cond good and great location for cafes, beach, etc. The main complaint would be the bathroom is dated with blemished dim mirror, shutters to spa that we couldn't close properly.

Convenient location Hotel was nice, but the room we were in was quite small, if we wanted to get take away there was no table in the room as it wouldn't fit, we would be forced to eat outside on the balcony which had a outdoor setting for two.
