We arrived at the apartment late after an evening flight and a 40/45 minute journey from the airport, and were pleasantly surprised with the apartment. It was very clean and a fantastic size for 4 people. The basics had also been left in the fridge for us which was a very welcome gesture. The only thing missing was a bar of soap for the bathrooms but we picked those up from the supermarket the next day. The apartment was very well decorated and we even had brand new towels (they still had the labels on!). They also provided a guide to the local area which was very helpful and read by all.
The apartment is split over two levels, with a twin bedroom, shower room, kitchen and dining table at the top and second bedroom (double or twin), bath and shower room (fantastic size!) and lounge on the lower floor. You can walk out the back doors to the generous sized patio area which also has a barbecue, table, chairs and two loungers. Being on the ground level you do have people walking past to go to the pool but it does not feel exposed at all.
This would be perfect for a family with children as you can see the pool and a large grass area from the patio.
The only thing to be mindful of with the location, is the steep hill back to the apartment from the Old Town or nearest supermarket (which stocks nearly everything you might need). Carrying bottles of water up the hill certainly burnt off those extra calories!!
There is a cafe on site which has a small menu but covers most things (salads, toasties, pasta etc.). There is also a bar which is open all day although I’m not sure what time it closes. The pool is a great size and has a separate shallow area for children. The sun beds aren't the comfiest but they do the job, however they were all taken by around 11am each day.
There is a reception area where you are able to book taxis. The New Town is only a 10 minute drive away but would probably take about 45 minutes to walk it.
Overall, I would recommend this apartment to anyone, families, couples, small groups. Definitely a good place to keep in the books.
