"Condo is kept at a very high specification and standard"
Had a very relaxing 9 days in a lovely garden apartment with pool. John & Sheila who own it helped a great deal before we went. Kerry the local manager was also very professional & helpful, as was the local cleaner. Alough it's an apartment, it felt large and open, due to the garden & pool. There is everything there for you, it's very well equipped, with large rooms, amazing outdoor space and spotlessly clean. We would definately return.
Thanks guys, glad you had a great time
