The apartment (Property ID: ALS094) is just great. Very nicely decorated and kitted out with everything you need. Kitchen and bathroom are great, there is even a flat screen TV with satellite. The man at the property speaks English and is very helpful. The beach is nice and quiet, ideal for relaxing, water is clean. All in all, I can only give a very positive opinion.
