Very well equiped, spacious appartment. Spotlessly clean when we arrived. Just seen the previous review mentioning the noise, which is really funny as we felt how quiet the area was, we slept with the patio doors open. We also had a huge balcony. We were in appt 221 (L2), which is on the end of the 2nd floor, facing out to the reception rather than the pool. Sounds like we were lucky. To be honest none of the views were great so might be worth requesting being on that side rather than the pool side.
Not sure this is the place to be if you have a wheel chair or particular walking disabilities. Whilst there is a lift in the block, you have to go up about 10 steps to get in the front door, before you can access the lift. When you get out of the appts, you have to go down a steepish hill, across a main road (well served by pedestrian crossings) and up a steep hill, with steps to get to the main resort area. Again tricky for a wheel chair user. Folks with kiddies in buggies were fine.
There was a lot of graffiti around the area close to the appts. Not pleasing on the eye.
Laura the lady that manages the place is brilliant, really goes out of her way for her guests, nothing seemed too much trouble. She seemed to be there all day every day, which was very reassuring, there wasn't a different face on reception everytime you went passed. There is a huge supply of books in reception if you run out of something to read.
Yes, the beds were sooo hard and yes, be careful of the marbel steps.
Nice resort - modern sea side. Plenty of restaurants and bars to chose from. Beaches were amazing. Plenty of places to walk, particularly down by the marina and back up the beach. Don't go expecting a huge array of shops. Ideal place to chill out for a week!
