4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
We liked the space, and the view of the bay from the penthouse level. I think when this property was first built it would have indeed been 'luxury', but to describe it that way now, with the passing of time, is a little bit of a stretch. The decor and maintenance needs attention, and to have entertainment options running on wifi that does not cope, is poor. We did enjoy our time there, but for us the 'luxury' tag did not fit reality.

What a lovely place! We had a lovely welcome and were made to feel special. Everything was thought of and suggestions were made for what we might do and Raykindly made a bookingfor us for a day tripon a cat sailing. Theapartment (Moulin Rouge) has every amenity; we appreciated the stocked fridge, washing powder, dishwasher tablets....The apartments are up quite a steep hill but easy o drive to te bottom and park if you dont want to walk back up! Lovely beach for swimming round the corner, towels are provided. Stunning sunrise but it was a bit hot sitting on the little balcony for breakfast - cant complain!
