Fantastic apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in July, me hubby and 2 young children . The apartment was perfect for us, very clean, good sized rooms, equipped with everything you would need. Plenty of children's videos so the girls were very happy.

Girls were so excited to sleep in a bunk bed.

The kitchen had everything we needed.

The complex is very safe and all the windows had electric shutters which was also great as no light came beaming in early in the morning, you would think it was still night.

Location was great, in a quiet area, it's a short walk to the marina which is where we headed each night. We went to falesia beach which was about a 15-20 minute walk but we were happy by the pool

There is a train that goes to the beach plus other stops right opposite us but we never got the chance to use it

I would highly recommend this property, will definitely book again on our next visit :)

The grounds are kept in immaculate condition, pool was great and you have your own sun loungers per apartment.

Great Apt, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my family stayed in this particular apartment and I have to say I couldn't have picked a better location for everything! Supermarket@the top of the street, kids club across from the apartment and the little train runs right outside also. As for the apartment its self it was great only fault I would have is there is no AC......badly needed! other than that absolutely no complaints, pool area immaculate, grounds kept pristine,safe and kids loved it. Would definitely stay again and would highly recommend.
