I decided a last minute getaway from London to chill out and relax and it worked a treat! We didn't hire a car but organised a transfer via the owner. Picked up at the airport immediately and the driver also stopped at the supermarket to allow us to get in the necessary provisions.
The property is on a gated small community. I noted that the front gate was kept locked by all residents which is great for security and if you have toddlers running around. The apartment is beautiful. Tastefully decorated and the owner has thought of everything you might need, from beach towels to ice lolly maker.
The living, dining, kitchen area is spacious with two large sofas, English TV, DVD player, open fire for the winter months, good quality solid wood dining table, breakfast bar. Kitchen has oven, hob, microwave, large fridge freezer, washing machine, toaster, kettle, plenty of storage space, plenty of lights.
The family bathroom is nice and big with toilet, bidet and bath/shower. Bedrooms are beautifully decorated, clean linen, air-conditioning, lots of storage space. The main double room is en-suite with toilet, basin and shower. The showers were both excellent with hot water on demand.
There is a small garden at the front of the property and sitting area, with solar candles and fairy lights to add ambience.
Upstairs is a totally secluded sun/socialising area. I loved this part the best. There is a shower upstairs and a large table seating six people. Solid sun beds for 4 people. A built in BBQ. There is always an area of shade and often a breeze so its perfect for sun worshippers and those who love to dine al-fresco.
We used the pool every day. The pool is very clean and not over-done with the chlorine. Other residents were polite without being intrusive. There is always some time to have the pool to yourselves. It is open 8.00am to 22.00pm.
I used the kitchen to cook twice and everything I needed was provided. I also cooked a whole chicken on the BBQ upstairs and found it incredibly easy to light (no wind blowing on it) and cook on.
We ate out at the Plaza one night. The Plaza is a 10 minute walk (the short cut is to go through the park and up the steps and turn right). There is always live music at the Plaza, many restaurants and shops. Its very lively but the property is far away enough to not hear a thing at night.. There is also the Boulevard nearby but you would need to drive, get a taxi or bus. Golf is a 5 minute drive away and the beach is a short drive away.
I can thoroughly reccommend this property for a stress-free holiday. Its really not stag and hen do's, not sunburned Brits drinking to oblivion, no Agadoo! But its perfect for couples of all ages and families - car or no car. I am definitely going back.
