This place was fantastic
Myself and 2 friends went here for a week in October for some winter sun.
I cannot speak highly enough of the staff who were very accommodating with all our requests.
Large apartments with separate kitchen, large bathroom, bedroom with patio door, large sitting room which can be used as another bedroom as there are pullout bed/ couches in the apartment.
Staff- owners included were very personal- we were 3 boys on tour and obviously out for a good time one night too many- staff were so understanding and friendly despite one of us acting up due to mass consummation of alcohol- no it was not me!
For their approach to customer service based on this alone they deserve a medal...they are also truly friendly people to deal with bar one person who seemed somewhat disinterested but you can not have it all
These apartments are well built unlike others I have been in in Portugal where you hear every noise from every apartment once they are all awake and mobile.
Lidl/ Aldi and Continente shopping centres are 800 metres away so go for self catering as the option if you want cheap and cheerful
Rooms well cleaned and serviced everyday
1600 metre walk to main strip and beach for restaurants during the night or else about 800 metres walk through a short cut best used during the day for obvious reasons
price- for what you are paying, I really feel any negatives are unjustified here- if you pay top dollar then expect top class but please be real- don't expect all the bells and whistles when your not willing to pay for it- in saying so we had everything we needed
Not a lot but perhaps there is nothing in the immediate vicinity - however as above it's not a long walk to everything!
Apartment wise- ensure you get a pool view block in a b or c- these will ensure you have good sun and good views of them pool- one has sun all day- not our one unfortunately
Go ground floor for a massive terrace overlooking the pool if you can!
Enjoy your trip !
