5 out of 5

Beautiful interiors and views of the beach

Pros: The decor, hospitality and the views of the beach. The only drawback was the univiting entrance to the apartment block.. dark..and no help for luggage
Cons: Directions in order to locate the apartment. We had to ask a few people to locate the lifts and realised it's more of a home stay rather than a hotel.
Beautifully decorated. Modern with a traditional touch. Stunning views of the beach.
