View from apartments beautiful spoiled by 3-4 feet wall Also gate to beach continually locked. Security? Very good service, cleanliness. Supermarket? A disaster! Would not be encouraged to spend any money in this complex.

“Rooms have fantastic sea view-spoiled by wall in front of balcony, about four feet high. Appreciate this is for safety, but does not have to be brick. Also gate to beach continually padlocked security?”
