We stayed here (Apartment B10) from June 6, to June 9, 2014. (After our arrival we added one more night because we got a very good first impression of the apartment/resort). It was my wife’s birthday and we were presented with a free upgrade (from one bedroom to two), which was very nice because we used the spare one as a nursery for our 2 year old. On our arrival, there was also a complementary fruit basket, crackers, coffee and tea, which was also nice and helped to give that good first impression.
The apartment complex is located inside the large golf resort. It’s very well located for people that still want to enjoy the nearby beach (but the surf is aggressive and the beach has no lifeguard so its not advisable to go swimming alone in the ocean) It is reasonably close to the village centres and shops (you’ll have to take a car though).
There are several general amenities (even excluding the ones of the Marriott hotel also located in the resort) like a playground, a football field, a clubhouse with bar, lounge and restaurant, (with take away food – we ordered one night and it was very good even if a bit on the expensive side). Specifically, in the apartment complex, there is also an Italian Restaurant and a supermarket (well stocked) which is very handy since any others are some km outside the resort.
There are several swimming pools (with different locations, sizes and depths) and you can use any of them. Nevertheless, there is no internet wi-fi (only in the clubhouse) and if you want access you will have to rent a router for your apartment at extra cost.
We (3 adults and 1 baby) stayed in a large two bedroom apartment (with 2 baths) on the first floor. The apartment was very well cleaned on our arrival, and was equipped with all the house amenities (but no amenities that you might need for an infant, so if you don’t bring your one, the bed and tall chair will cost you extra). All bedding and towels are provided, except for beach/pool towels. The kitchen was very well equipped (dishwasher, full size refrigerator, washing machine, electric stove and oven, microwave, toaster and electric kettle). It also had most of the kitchen utensils and pans and even a hand blender. The 2 bedrooms were large and nicely decorated, one with two single beds, and the other with a large bed (suite), each one with plentiful space to store your things. Also, the living room was large with a Flat screen TV, DVD player and Stereo. The TV has a good variety of satellite channels, in all languages.
Relating to the checkout, the assigned checkout time is at 10H00 am, but on our arrival, because of the baby, we asked to leave later, and were told the next day that it might be possible to leave at 12H00 pm, which was very helpful to us.
In conclusion: This is a very good place to go on holiday with your family and small children. We stayed for just a few days, but got the sense of really relaxing.
