The view of the Atlantic Ocean and the lagoon is exactly as pictured. The first days the views were excellent; day 2 was foggy which gave another perspective. We chose this rental based on location and views. The apartment was adequate and as described. The kitchen was adequately equipped although basic supplies were lacking. For example, there was a washing machine that we used but needed to buy washer soap. We were not able to get the oven working. There was a coffee pot but no coffee to get us started. Other rentals that we have stayed at in the past (England, Scotland, France, US) have had small amounts of supplies to get the travelers started. There are cafes and restaurants close by to access within easy walking distance. Easy check out and good communication prior to arrival.
