Upon arrival we were treated poorly, manager made us feel very unwelcome. The overall interior of the apartment was nice, airconditioner in one of the rooms didn't work unfortunately. Would be a lovely place to stay if they treated their guests with a more welcoming manner rather than a roll of the eye and a auro that made you feel... More

The picture in my mind if a resort is probably Bali, one with 24hr service, pools an acre in size, 5 star restaurant, you know the deal. This property is a motel style apartment complex, set off the street, possibly views from the front apartments but ours was of the parking lot. Not an issue in itself, just sayin'. But... More

If you want a resort feel this is not the place. Reception closes early evening and overnight. No facilities here as such. Might pay to book a table for dinner at... More

Price was a little high due to school holidays, although justified by the fact kitchen was the most fully equipped of any we have stayed in. Everything including egg cups, whisks, washing machine and dryer in room,......could only be better if there was butter in the fridge;-) Seriously, that is the only thing we needed as shop on ground floor...

What a wonderful surprise and a great location. Our apartment overlooked the sea and to our left the lush mountain landscape. So fresh and crisp air each morning and all these views from our apartment. The sunsets were so very picturesque each evening. The whole experience was magical. Our apartment was clean, well equiped and close to the bus stop.... More

Really enjoyed our 1 night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment was very spacious, had everything you could possibly need - and I mean everything! Sea views right on the beach, however it was also very quiet and comfortable. Off street free parking is a bonus. Excellent value, would definitely recommend. We will be back for... More
