We were lucky to get a top floor 3 bedroom, 2 bath apt with a large balcony with a great view south toward the coast and harbor. The 2 major bedrooms are very tiny, so you have to use hallway closets. The 3rd bedroom was little more than an L-shaped closet with 2 single beds, so we just used this as a storage closet. On the other hand, the kitchen, dining room and living room were very spacious. We cooked many of our meals ourselves and had scenic meals on the balcony, but of course there are many nice pubs and harbor side restaurants in the center of town - an easy 15-20min walk from the resort. There are also some supermarkets within walking distance in town (Eg, Spar) where you can get a good variety of groceries, spirits and cooked take-out food. The grounds, gardens and pools are very nice and the whole gated community is very comfortable and secure. The staff were exceptionally nice and helpful, but be sure to arrive before the 6pm closing time for Reception. The general location of the resort is on a hillside in a pleasant neighborhood, away from noise and traffic, but easily accessible to the central harbor village or the lengthy beach. In summary, a very nice place for a quiet vacation near the sea for either families or adults, but be advised of the very small bedrooms.
