Lovely Top Floor Apartment

4 of 5
This was our second stay in this apartment. Lovely apartment with nice terrace. Air conditioning throughout perfect for the hot summer days. Apartment is always clean on arrival & the local agent is very helpful. This apartment is located by one of the best pools on the resort, perfect for adults and families, especially those with younger children like ours as there are shallow areas for them to safely play. Great booking experience and Lynn is always very efficient. Looking forward to our third visit next year.
