Great location in walking distance to most things eg shops, tourist attractions and restaurants. Great view over the marina and big balcony where we could sit and watch the boats coming and going. Very quiet. Staff went out of their way to make our stay good. Apartment was big and had all the facilities we needed. Bathroom needed some work as the shower leaked and there was a bit of mould. Furnishings were basic but ok.

Great location and excellent views.

Nice location. Great selection of cafe's and restaurants to choose from. Room was nice however the shower flooded the bathroom floor when used.

Well located

Enjoyed the spacious 1bedroom apartment. Cannot find any fault. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The location was great but the apartment was well below the advertised 4 star.

The apartment had a bad mould smell in it. The location was great. It was good having a washing machine and dryer. Simple things like a toilet brush and container would help when the apartment was not being cleaned daily. We had to fight the ants in the kitchen as they appeared every day. Good to have a balcony with views and to leave the doors open to lessen the mouldy smell. All in all it was not good value for money here and we would not choose it next time.

Great location, lovely staff at reception.

Enjoyed our stay. Only thing that we needed to pass on was the amenities in the bathroom were empty or close to being empty ie body wash and shampoo dispenser.
