By far the best place to stay for convenience, quiet location, sun, sand and surf. Room was immaculate. Very welcoming homey feel with 5 star hotel amenities. Will definitely be back. We have found our little piece of heaven.

A lovely little find. Perfectly positioned a few meters from the beachfront and sea pool (no views though). These little apartments are well equipped with a fully equipped kitchen, spa bath, private patio, wi fi and DVDs for the rainy weather. Situated a 5 minute stroll away from restaurants and shops this is almost everything you want for a weekend...
