It is very spacious with a large outdoor terrace that we used everyday to eat and relax on. The apartment is situated in a very convenient location within the complex, very near to the pool and restaurant. It has been furnished with everything that you could possibly need. Thanks, we had a super holiday.

As it was October the pool was a little cold but fine for me and the kids. Victoria was very helpful, always on hand when needed. It might help if there was a folder explaining some of the do's and donts at the villa, where lights are, etc. Also a list of supermarkets and facilities in Istan, but we found it all out anyway. I would recommend to anyone with large groups.
