We stayed in Residenza Gardenia for nine nights. It was a very pleasant stay. There is a swimming pool at the back, which has been maintained very well. The flats are about three to five minutes walk from the beach, bars and restaurants. Super market is right beneath you. A great place for family holidays.

Firstly, the cleaners were non existent, they never came to clean the apartment, let alone put out the bin. It was written in the emai that they sent to me, that the cleaners would come to change the bed sheets ad towels mid week, but that never happened. You are meant to have a holiday but instead you have to clean everything!
Basic kitchen utensils(pans,knives etc) were awful, the knives were bendy, pots would not even cook things properly and therefore the pans were burnt.
There was no oven,kettle,iron and microwave. When someone would have a five minute shower, there is no hot water available for the next person, otherwise you'd have to wait at least 40 minutes.
Beds were saggy, you'd sit on them and you could feel yourself sinking into it.
On a more positive note the area around the apartment was ok.
