This apartment has English T.V channels such as ITV, BBC 1 and BBC 2. It has a bathroom with bath and shower. It has a small kitchen area which consists of a fridge cooker and oven besides kettle, microwave, and toaster pots and pans. There is plenty of storage space, air conditioning and heating. I have stayed here and will be planning on staying there again next year. There is no washing machine but In the complex there is facilities to laundry your own clothes with a 4 euro token from the reception. In the complex there is a bar with live entertainment a restrauant and a couple of swimming pools. I have had a very pleasant stay and I may be contacted on face book if you would like to ask any questions. Wendy Crowther, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.

I would suggest some form of door between the living area and hallway. The BBQ was inaccessible due to plants and I would have preferred the pool to be heated. These suggestions are not complaints as overall we enjoyed a pleasant, comfortable stay and the owners were extremely friendly and helpful.
