Visiting Costa Natura for the second time. Very helpful young lady on Reception, did the necessary paperwork and gave us the keys to Apt 79. Although nice, not exactly what we booked so returned to the Reception and they moved us to Apt.68, which we had last time, far better. The apartment is fitted with everything we needed, lounge, kitchen/dining area, toilet/shower and split level bedroom leading to the second balcony which had sun on it till mid evening.
Major disappointment was the swimming pool was being redesigned due to some bureaucratic making a new rule, that due to the pool size it needed a lifeguard and fencing round it. So the pool was being rebuilt and was already two weeks behind schedule. Strange as this facility had been around for several years with no problems. The lady working in the bar/restaurant told us that it was to be completed in seven days. When we left four days later it was nowhere near finished. I would have said at least two more weeks. Due to it's location the jacuzzi could only be used by walking through the building site and the workmen if they were there. Unfortunately it appeared that the bar/restaurant's trade was affected as well, hopefully it will improve once the pool is finished.
We had a couple of meals at the restaurant, but after waiting an hour on the second visit we decided to self cater. No complaints about the food, we had the 11€ set meal. Good value, well cooked.
Across the road from the resort are two supermarkets with everything you need for self catering.
Other facilities onsite include free library with books from several countries, games, jacuzzi, suana, sun loungers, additional bar next to a pétanque/boules court (which was used every day). By the bar was the exit to the naturist beach shared with the public. Beach was grey sand but became pebbly in water, also became deep very quickly.
Wifi is available 8€ for 2 days, 20€ for a week & 30€ for two weeks. Only valid for one unit in the apartment though.
Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would return again.
