The location of the property was great and the pool and spa at the premise was excellent. The room we had was relatively modern but the furniture was a little rundown. There seemed to be a bit of a problem with ants in our apartment, they were everywhere (bathroom/kitchen/ bedroom) even with all of our food put away. This was quite annoying. Apart from that the property was great and the pool was a big hit with our children!

Great location, clean and tidy apartment with good self catering facilities. Helpful, friendly staff. Only negative was the hot tub could do with some more regular cleaning and the pool was a bit cold.
