The villa was perfect and the location was great. It was set slightly further away from the strip so it was quiet but only took two minutes to walk to the strip. The rooms was large and the beds were comfortable - couldn't have asked for a better villa for my hen do and would definitely come back! Highly recommend it!!

                                                                                          5 of 5

I don't usually leave reviews but I was that impressed I thought I would review it on here. We stayed in apartment 10 and were impressed from the moment we pulled up outside the gates of the apartment block. Everything is beautifully finished to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. The apartment and grounds were clean and obviously very well looked after and maintained. The pool area was lovely and although we arrived during the first week of the school holidays, we did not struggle to get sun loungers. The pool area tended to be quieter in the mornings and got busier mid to late afternoon. The loungers are in a prime position for the sun all day and the pool was a god send! The pool is shallow on the one side and gradually gets to about 6 foot deep. The location of the property is spot on. It is a 3 minute walk to the beach, a 5 minute walk to me strip(new town) and 15/25 minute walk to the Old Town depending on the route you take. We walked along the beach during the day, but in the evenings we walked the road way. If you go out of the gate towards the beach, you can take a right and follow the road straight round. This is much quicker than going out of the main gates at the entrance. We love the feel of the Old Town and found some really good restaurants there too. Try Casa Del Mar, Urban Pizza and the Steak Lounge. The chinese in the new town is also worth a visit! The booking process was easy. Maria was fantastic from start to finish. She responded to emails very quickly and the responses were friendly and professional. Once you book you pay a 25% deposit and the balance 8 weeks before your arrival date. Maria sent a booking form to complete; which confirmed all of our details, payment details and terms and conditions. She also arranged our airport transfers for 75 euros. Again this was very professional. Kevin emailed me closer to the departure date to confirm flight details etc and to advise who would collect us from the airport. Once we arrived at the apartment Kevin met is and was very freindly, professional and helpful. He showed us how everything worked and left us with a folder full of useful information about the apartment and the area. We had a fantastic holiday and loved the apartment so much that we are already looking to book again for next year!

                                                                                          My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here during July 2016. We both agreed it was our best holiday ever. From the offset the response from Maria was prompt and first class. This was matched by Kevin once we arrived who was extremely helpful. The level of customer service we experienced was as good as I've come across anywhere. The apartment was just as stated. Top class appliances and a location that would be hard to beat. On site is a beautiful and extremely clean pool area which has a backdrop of stunning coastal views. The strip is only five minutes away. Or if you fancy Oldtown, it's a twenty minute walk, mostly downhill. Alternatively you can get there by walking along the beautiful beaches which can be accessed by a 2-3 minute walk from the rear of the property. If you find yourself stuck in a taxi queue in Oldtown at night, go to the top of the outdoor elevators and you can get a tuk tuk back to the apartment in no time. There is no shortage of great restaurants and bars nearby. Chili Pepper next door has a great and varied menu and is open everyday except Mondays. There is also a mini market just a couple of minutes away to stock up on groceries and supplies. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anybody. In fact I plan on returning myself in the future and am already looking forward to this.
