The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The service was adequate. The position is amazing with the most spectacular views over the sea. The sunsets are beautiful. Close to all the main attractions with direct access to two private beaches that are unspoilt and beautiful.

Very well received by Mariana. She was very helpful and attentive. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Fantastic cliff top views at the rear. Five minutes from a great beach. Five minutes from a good restaurant. Get it booked.
