There were even toys for the children! The area is an ideal family holiday location, quiet and peaceful, with just a short walk to the beach, buses, restaurants and a variety of shops. The host is excellent, welcoming and friendly, and always contactable if necessary. Would highly recommend this place for a stay.

The cleaner attended twice during our 10 night stay, cleaning and leaving some home cooked food on one occasion! Pool was good, DVD player useful to entertain kids and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. Washing machine worked well and the outside area was good for shade and sun. Would have been good if instructions for the jacuzzi were available - but we eventually got it going.
