Cielomar apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment which we stayed in April then again in September. The apartment is immaculate clean and all furnishings and fittings are of a high standard . The owners Barry and Claire we met and they are friendly and really care about their guests. Lovely little touches cold beer in fridge when we arrived and a guest hospitality tray . The apartment is home from home and all you need are your clothes . There is even body wash and body lotion supplied. Both myself and husband will only stay in this apartment in future as there could not be anything better .
