A short, pleasant stroll to the outdoor seawater pool or the beach, or an early morning/evening dip in the indoor heated pool was a bonus. Staff were friendly and helpful, facilities excellent, and the owner was more than helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment for a relaxing beach based holiday with easy local transport links.
