We had the pleasure of staying here for nearly 3 weeks in August 2014 and it was amazing. The apartment is lovely and fully equipped with everything needed for your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and had every utensils that you would need. Well located, a walk to the beach also Lords Bar is lovely for a drink and the restaurant there serves lovely food. We hired a car but you don't necessarily need one as there is a supermarket a short walk from the apartments. There is beautiful sea views from the apartment balcony. The swimming pool and the children's pool area was good.
