Have just returned after a week stay. WE arrived early evening on a sunday to find thereception plus the only restaurant closed, there are no restaurants or shops including supermarkets for a good 40 minute walk.
During the day the pool bar was closed and to our amazement the pool and complex was empty we didnt see any one else around really for the weeK so you couldnt pop to the shop for a drink or an icecream for the children. The reception staff were helpful in ordering a taxi but nothing else as our apartment number 87 was privately owned we werent classed as their guests.
Also it is right in the flight path very noisy.And definately not a family resort.
The beach is also a good 30 min walk along a very rugged path not ideal for buggys.
The apartment was lovely although wasnt expecting the upstairs to be a seperate apartment so glad nobody was staying as our garden and pool privacy would have been totally spoilt.
A couple of big tips hire a car,and DO NOT GO HERE LATE SEPTEMBER.
