My husband and I stayed in this apartment after Christmas for a few days. We found the apartment to be very clean comfy and well equiped.With stunning views from the balcony, there is nothing we could fault with this apartment.
With just a short walk to Catalan Bay where there is small shop for any essentials and a couple of restuarants which we found very reasonably priced. Or if you prefer to go a little further there is a bus from the reception at Both World's which will take you into town.
We found Both World's to be a great place to chill out and relax but within easy reach of the town.
We are missing the sound of the sea sending us to sleep at night, so thank you Judy the apartment is super and yes we will return.
