They were not prepared for our arrival Food is sub standard and takes way too long to be served. Faucets are rusty and the pressure was miserably low! House keeping isn't diligent, should be a set standard to change towels daily Bedding was stained and very low thread count Advertising looked way better.. which made us very disappointed. They played...

I booked this place for a couple of nights without research of the area. I was on a solo flashpacker trip. I left after an hour, but not due to any fault of the place. It's a self-contained family place, a bit isolated. Villas have kitchens and are furnished. There are several lovely swimming pools, and the grounds are quite...

If you are all about a self-catering holiday with unfettered access to white sandy beaches and swimming facilities this is the place for you. The only downside is that the houses seem to be owned by different individuals hence the condition of the houses varies from unit to unit.

This was surprisingly good, with a laid back atmosphere. Room service was efficient with friendly and effective staff. Aden and Cosmas at the reception were flexible and willing to help with adjustments that were needed. There is a very spacious swimming pool and we really enjoyed our stay there. This is definitely value for money.
