Wonderful property in ideal location

5 of 5
We had a wonderful experience staying at this beautiful well appointed property. The owner could not have been any more welcoming and helpful. Everything we needed was available for us, with all the home comforts you could wish for included. The manager of the Villas for the Iberostar was similarly extremely welcoming and helpful and spoke excellent English. The whole resort is family friendly and very safe for the children to explore alone, and the sandy beach is only a few metres walk away. The swimming pool was a lovely warm temperature and the housekeeper service was fantastic as well. I highly recommend this property to any potential visitors. My only tip - We were glad of a hire car to explore the surrounding area a little so would recommend this if it's an available option.
