The pool is lovely. The units are old and dated, especially the bathrooms - ours had cracked tiles, parts held together with tape, mould, and so much dust on the screens it was disgusting. The light shone straight through the very old Venetian blinds in the mornings. It is close to the beach and has a lovely pool. But it is way overpriced and I think when the new block opens up next door this place will be impacted significantly. They need to update bathrooms and kitchens ASAP.
