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.

It is very well equipped with inflatables for the pool and toys for the beach. It is a very family friendly property with plenty of space for all. We really enjoyed our stay and Peter could not have been more helpful. I would highly recommend this property. Conor
