The property was exceptionally clean, tidy and comfortable and was in a great location.

5 of 5
We had a great holiday. The accommodation was spacious and clean and had everything required for self catering. The location of the property was good; there was easy access to all local beaches, shops and transport.

Great

4 of 5
We had a good stay in the apartment,the view and location is perfect, however the apartment needs maintenance, for example loose toiletseat, loose watertap, and no wifi,this has to be arranged seperately. Chairs at balcony were uncomfortable and needed cushions,would have been nice to have a dishwasher also since all the glassware in cupboards were not really clean.However Edificio Imperator has a great location and would surely stay again.
