Nothing we liked , the property was extremely basic and needed up dating . Facilities in the apartment were very old e.g kettle toaster etc . All the crockery was old stained and some were even greasy. Although the linen was good quality the pillows had a very damp musty smell . Also very poor for hanging and storing clothes . We felt this property needed a lot of work doing to it to make your stay comfortable and welcoming neither of which we felt we got and was not worth the money even as a budget apartment.

The reception staff were excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. It made booking tours etc.. very easy. The location was good. Close to main st whilst not being on it and walking distance to both the beach and marina. The accommodation was clean and tidy. The rooms were basic but had most things you need. The pool and bbq area was lovely.
