We stayed in a two bedroom apartment with a large deck on the top floor overlooking the complex. While the here were quite hard and the rooms dated and in need of some upgrades. It is really close to the beach, great pool, and decent food if you eat there. It is close to many eating places along the coast.

My family and I had a wonderful time when we stayed in these apartments last week. The furniture is a little dated, but there was a kitchen fully equipped with everything you could need - a kettle, fridge freezer, oven, microwave. The rooms were large enough for my family of four and I feel was a perfect (and quiet) place...
