Perfect to help one relax. The location is superb and within easy reach of various other parts of the island. If you don't have a car, you can walk along the sea front in both directions and take the local bus. The manager was helpful, replied to our emails promptly, and allowed us to leave our bags in the apartment as we had a late flight. Directions were accurate and helpful. It seems too that there is a coach just outside the hotel going to the airport, although we never used it. We didn't spend a lot of time indoors but there was a television, washing machine, dishwasher, all in good working order. The rooms were spacious. We'd like to go back and would recommend this apartment.
