8/10 Very good

Great but need to allow food and drink around pool
Lovely stay - great location and quiet too. Apartment was clean and spacious with lovely balcony. Only negative was being told off for sharing a bottle of wine around the large pool area (you can do this but not your own drink, you had to buy from them). Strange concept for a self catering resort. Even stranger when half of their wine menu wasn’t available!
