The apartment facilities were great. We had everything we needed. TV stations available were poor for us but we were on holiday. I found the chairs on the outside veranda uncomfortable.There was some negatives. They were the complex its self. On arrival I didnt have a contact number for Suzana Valente, the key holder. Reception were most unhelpful. They simply didnt want anything to do with us and were not at all prepared to help saying that out apartment was private. My partner was in the same complex about 13 years ago and she said some things were still the same. The bar and restaurant areas had had no investment in years and showed every sign of that lack of investment. Pool area was fine.
