Our room was clean and comfortable. Easy walk to beaches and some nice restaurants. We received some great advice from Daniel and his four legged mate Nelson on reception. Daniel went above and beyond the call of duty. So good value overall!

The apartments are well situated but the decor is dated beach side. An easy walk to the jetty and the restaurant strip. A good spot for a family and walking distance to the beach. The balcony has views to the sea.

Nice location and very friendly staff. Stayed in two bedroom unit and are somewhat basic with no dishwashers and only one ensuite. Not sure what long term stay would be like. They would however appear to be commensurate with the rates charged.

Very clean and tidy apartments. Great service from reception staff. Nice quiet swimming pool area. Close to restaurants, beaches, clubs and shops. Available parking for each apartment. Will definitely stay again.
