Everything was as described and it was great to have things like a travel cot included, maid service once a week and that lovely sunny garden. We would only suggest for future that the welcome folder should be left on a table for arrival with the pool entry key in as we didn't know about this so had to go to the management place. Also info on the restaurants and local area would be good. Minor thing as everything else was wonderful

Only slight downside was that access to the pool area was at the end of the block - about a 2 minute walk from the apartment. Also there was only 1 key fob which gave you access in and out of the pool area. This proved quite difficult having to relay the keys back and forth to the apartment for five people. Other than that the apartment was comfortable and clean with all amenities you could wish for. Two spacious bathrooms and bedrooms, excellent air conditioning throughout, sky television on both tv's and lovely big balcony. Marianne, the owner and Lynda, the woman who looked after the apartment were lovely and couldn't do enough for you. Marianne made sure she helped me with any query I had from booking in March, to the stay in July, even when on holiday herself. Would definatley stay again. The location of the apartment itself was convenient for the restaraunts, golf club, pool and shops. I preffered this area to vilamora marina as it was much more peaceful with still things going on at the evening, without the noise and expense of the marina. Thanks very much Marianne.
