The apartment is lovely a real home from home. There is everything you could possibly need there and the welcome pack was a real bonus. The views from the terraces were absolutely breathtaking. The gas bbq on the roof terrace was great had a lovely couple of meals up there. We will hopefully be returning next year to this wonderful apartment and the beautiful village of frigiliana.

The resort still has a very pleasing atmosphere both during the day and also at nightime, with plenty of restaurants of varying cuisine all within easy walking distance. The apartment was excellent, having everything you need for a great holiday, including a lovely pool area. The furnishings are of high quality with a really comfy bed, and there is a choice of air conditioning or ceiling fans. It also boasts a balcony with sea views across the bay, ideal for dining or just relaxing. We can't recommend this highly enough.
