    Great Location but electrical problems”

    Overall this stay was ok but many problems with electrical items not working/faulty circuits meant extension cords run and TV, hairdryer and lights not working properly during our stay. Apologies offered but no other compensation. Our room was upstairs at the front and the location and views were excellent with a very light and spacious room.

    Disappointed”

    This place has a lot going for it. Incredible location in lovely area. Huge complex of varying accomodation. On arrival the owners were very pleasant and the garden/pool area looked clean and quite pretty. The facilities in our beach front apartment were perfect and everything looked clean. So why can I not recommend? Initial disappointment was the shabby/ wrecked front door followed by a horrible dirty odour on entry. The bathroom needs a lot of attention and as for the white net curtain, the smell made me feel sick. The rusty loo roll holder just added extra. The carpets were threadbare with holes and the chair cushions badly stained. I had to sit on a spare pillow. Such a shame as the appt was huge and had incredible sea views. Perhaps a thorough deep clean would solve the probs.
