Lovely cottage for a family stay
The house was lovely, lots of home comforts - they had everything utensil wise and were very accommodating in arranging baby equipment for us. We requested an additional travel cot and it was there in a matter of hours.
The garden was quite small but there was a BBQ which we used a few times.
The house was perfect for our stay and the pool nearby was very handy - less than a minute's walk. It was a bit of a walk into the centre of the resort so we did find we needed to drive but there was at least free parking. The pools there were lovely but it was expensive to use the rapid pools etc - €40 for two adults (kids were free).
The only downside was that the house got quite hot upstairs although the fans did help somewhat. The aircon downstairs was very good.
Overall a lovely stay and we would go back again.
Great property in an excellent location
I stayed at the property with wife and 2 boys (10 and 12). The property was excellent - well equipped with everything that we needed, very clean with a nice garden where we usually ate dinner. The location was excellent, the two swimming pools were both really good and the kids loved these. There is also a putting green and driving range close by, which was excellent for one of my sons who loves golf and the main complex is a ten minute walk away. I would thoroughly recommend the villa - we had a great holiday.
