Very clean and sunny in the morning. Beautiful view on the marina, comfortable and well furnished. Two balconies facing the Marina. Easy access to the nice and long heated swimming pool but after 3.00pm in February there is no more sun. So do your visits in the afternoon or go to the beach if you need more sun. The pool is really great for swimming and the small kinds have theirs as well. You will find many shops around. The beach is 10 min walk away. Taxis are cheap, so no problem for your visits. If not there is the tram. The place is quiet and very safe. Many thanks Neil.

The resort itself is stunning and both the villa and the resort have fantastic facilities. A real chilled out place to relax in! Will definitely recommend to everyone and will revisit! I felt like I was in Spain!
