Great Holidy

4 of 5
Great Holiday But with some minor gripes We loved the location with the walks along the sea path but not sure it would suit everyone as it is very quiet we had a car so if we wanted more it was accessible to us Loved the outside space and sea views Although small the best bathroom and shower i have ever used in the canaries and i have visited on average 8 weeks a year for 20 years The kitchen facilities again were very good to TV & WiFi worked well Now the downside and these are only minor gripes and did not detract from our stay linen and towels need upgrade could do with relocation of TV Would we stay again definitely would recommend unreservedly Paul & Eileen Sylvester 21 July 2017
