Spent two weeks here from 29th February with a friend after booking through Owners Direct. We were particularly attracted to it as we do not share a bedroom and the lounge area in most one bedroom apartments have uncomfortable sofas and I worry about waking them during nocturnal toilet visits. Here the sofas in most apartments become double beds and there is a toilet downstairs as well as the bathroom upstairs by the bedroom.
The positives - our apartment had a partial sea view from the balcony off the bedroom, it was clean, well equipped and the beds were comfortable. There are plenty of sun beds around the pool. The blue ones in the pool area were older but still in good condition and the new yellow ones on the terrace had a whole range of seating options. The complex is within an easy walk to the sea and all the shops and restaurants.
The negatives - the view from the patio was of the external complex wall and there was a phone box on the other side so people spent time stood there. Just a bit disconcerting when you are eating your breakfast, but that is probably a personal thing. We ate when possible on the upstairs balcony for that reason but then you had to tackle the stairs with things in your hands. They are tile stairs with a very tight bend in them, not ideal for anyone with even the slightest mobility issue, if you have big feet, when carrying things or after a drink or two. I found that starting with my right foot on the first stair made it easier but I am sure that there were other ways. There was little progress on the work that has been going on around the pool/bar area so that remains taped off but we did have drilling under the terrace (?pump area) for the last couple of days.
All in all I would recommend this complex and plan to go back as soon as possible.
