Facilities like the pool and gym were easily accessible, kitchen was fully equipped and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was also reasonably nice and the air conditioning worked very well.
The carpet edge where it met with other rooms had the positioning tacks unprotected, which meant that walking barefoot from room to room was painful as the nails stuck into your feet!!! The kitchen tap extended further than the sink so water splashed all over the bench and the dishwasher did not work.
Relax... nice long weekend away from home
Everything was good but could supply more packets of washing powder,washing up liquid for people staying longer then 2 nights.
The apartment was immaculate, possibly never used. Spacious, modern and clean.
There was an element of style over substance eg bedside lamps but no socket nearby, taps which stretched over the entire sink which made them impracticable and no sink plug. Limited TV and a phone but no phone line. Not suitable for holiday makers as a lengthy walk away from the coast. The site is still being developed and the site adjacent is awaiting development which makes it unsightly as an overlook.
