Perfect location, excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a real find. The complex is secure, the pool beautiful (a touch nippy in April for obvious reasons!) and the flat very comfortable and modern. Kitchen is well equipped, showers are hot and powerful. We sat on the terrace every morning for breakfast and every evening for dinner. There are cars, but the view and the sunshine are worth it.

The location couldn't be better. A few minutes walk to either the excellent harbour-side restaurants, the boardwalk and beach, and even the cliffs are only 15mins walk away.

Great apartment, amazing location

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment clean, spacious, well equipped and nicely furnished. Rooms are large and everything was well maintained. The swimming pool in the complex is brilliant - huge and almost always empty. Our toddler loved the children's pool too.

The location is brilliant - 5 mins stroll to the beautiful beach or to the many restaurants etc in town.

Just a couple of small negative points - the road runs almost directly under the balcony so we didn't really want to sit out there (+not safe for a toddler as there is a large gap under the railings), we only used it for drying wet things.

The pillows are dreadful! We resorted to putting cushions into pillow cases!
