It is well equipped with modern facilities and is clean and comfortable in all respects. I have no reservations in recommending it to any prospective renter. W W, UK

Very clean place which was a pleasure to spend a week in. Sea views are double aspect and triple glazing insulates the apartment from road noise. Air conditioning is quiet and efficient and was only needed in noon day sun. Proximity to shops, bars and restaurants makes this the ideal place to stay.
