Accommodation was very good and we enjoyed a very relaxing week by the pool. Less than 10 minute drive to the beach and easy drive to supermarkets. Managing agent very helpful and cleaner came on the Tuesday which was great.

There were 8 adults and 3 children. The villa was perfect in every way with a fabulous pool big enough for all to enjoy. The villa is about a 40 minute drive from the airport but you will definitely need a a hired car for your stay. There are a few very good restaurants nearby one within a five minute walk. The villa is located in a private park/street and is up hill once you turn off the main road. There is a decent supermarket which is approx. 5 minute drive away, but if you want more variety there is a huge hyper marketing about 15 minutes drive away with loads of shops. Our holiday was everything I had wished for. Great villa with all mod cons, including air conditioning in every room. Large pool with sun loungers and in a private area but still close to shops and restaurants. We just arrived home yesterday and Im wishing we could do it all over again. this gets 10 out of 10 from me
