On arrival we were met with friendly and very helpful service. The parking is easy to find and safe, and the rooms are all very neat and clean. you fall asleep with the sound of the ocean. The pool is wonderfully place so you can swim and have a view of the beautiful beach.

A lovely apartment with exceptional views of the ocean with best sunsets from the patio. Just needed more kitchen utensils and a bigger pot to cook in. The water pressure was a bit slow, due to the unit being on the 3rd level. We managed perfectly. Nice comfortable King size bed and comfortable lounge settee. The best was the sky light which would bring in natural light. To sleep, you just needed to close the blinds for the skylight. The position is great too, near shops and restaurants all on the doorstep. Very helpful and friendly staff. Great swimming pool to laze around if the beach got too windy. Extremely happy and loved it there. We will be back.

we were looking forward to some time out,especially the kids!we travel a lot and we are not fussy people,but one thing that is a deal breaker is an unclean accomodation!you may have outdated furnishings,but you still have to be clean..the showers were mouldy,which made showering cringe worthy..the floors were sticky,we had to have shoes on,the floors felt like they had been merely wiped and not mopped thoroughly!the saving grace was the outside sitting area and stunning views and incredibly comfy beds and central position,and close proximity to the beach,and also easy access to the communal pool..cleanliness is important in hospitality,so please improve on this aspect..you cannot only sell the location and views,upgrade the interiors and clean,clean,clean!!!!

Excellent value for money and very friendly staff. The room was clean, the linen was fresh and the pillows was perfect. The location is also great because it is Close to the beach and the mountain. Close to restuarants as well.
