★ ★ ★
A pleasant, slightly off centre self-catering base, in a raised area that appears to be relatively calm and relaxing.
The property operates a courtesy bus operates to the town centre and beach for those not wishing to spend the day in the pleasantly arranged pool area.
There is a small shop on site offering necessities and emergency supplies, including fresh bread and drinks.
An unexciting white painted building with an entrance at its rear. Each apartment has a sheltered recessed balcony and there is a short drive with a good supply of parking spaces available. A hire car would be a distinct advantage.
Property type: Apartments
Built Year: 1987
The interior decor is rather dark and unexciting although the spacious lobby, with its terracotta coloured floor has comfortable seating and a pleasant reception area.
A coffee shop and a cosy wood panelled bar have a congenial atmosphere and the simple restaurant offers a functional snacks service.
The grounds are appealing and well maintained, compensating for the distance from the beach. There is a good supply of sun-loungers and parasols available. Lofty palms add to the character and slightly sub tropical feel although there is the occasional rumble, but not intruding, of passing traffic.
Area Type: Situated towards the eastern extreme of the central resort area, above the main dual carriageway, towards the suburb of Montechoro, with its amusement park and large mass market holiday property.
