8/10 Very good

10/10 Exceptional

This was a nice find. Quiet, clean apartment with easy access to the beach. Pool clean. Staff very friendly. It is a bit isolated from the main road but we were happy to find a restaurant on the premises so we had the option to eat out or in the room if we did not want to cook. Food was good and staff also friendly. The only downside was the hot water in the showers was not working. They told us it is a pump issue that should be fixed soon. Would stay here again!
