Reception area clean & bright, staff welcoming & helpful. We had a one bedroom apartment which was clean & light. Single beds with ill fitting bottom sheets - would have preferred a double bed. Bathroom clean, plenty of towels & basic toiletries supplied. Shower over bath with plastic shower curtain so water getting onto the floor inevitable but water pressure acceptable. Nice big hallway with coat hooks. Sitting room with settee (not the most comfortable but okay & clean). Patio furniture okay. Pull out bed in a cupboard (didn't use it so can't comment on comfort). Dining table & four chairs okay. Kitchen equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave(could do with some covered dishes for use in the microwave) & cooker(needed ,matches to light oven which weren't provided) Basics like dishcloth, tea towel & washing up liquid not provided (which I would have expected) but could be purchased from reception for a small charge.
Small heated indoor pool & Jacuzzi which was little used so we had it to ourselves most evenings. Sauna with no water bucket (withdrawn due to a previous fire) which I found rather odd & pointless without steam.
Generally a pleasant stay but some of the above could definitely be improved upon.
