The apartment served all our needs and worked well for a family of 5. Apartment was very clean and tidy and the caretakers very helpful if required. Only 5 mins walk to beach and the pool great too although obviously gets busy during peak season so limited sunbeds available. The attached cafe was handy and dinner there was also fine. Best place we found for eating is 5 mins drive away at cabanas but booking essential. Would definitely recommend the apartment and location.
