Any questions were had during our stay were answered very quickly. The apartment was in a great location and all the beaches, old town and other sites were all within easy walking distance. There was a large number of bars and restaurants close by to choose from. We felt very safe walking around the area of the apartment late at night. The apartment was very quiet inside even although it is located on a busy road.
