Less than 5 mins. to the strip it is definitely a good 15 min walk to the olde town. Everything you need is close to hand- supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and bars. From the intial booking, our pickup at the airport, the introduction to the complex by the excellent Theresa and our return to the airport everything was grand.The complex is very safe and easy to relax in. Thanks again Steve.

New town, the food was great locals were very nice! The pool was great for the kids, the only reason it's not a 5 star rating was villa just needs a little modernisation apart from that we loved it we'll be going back
