    the area is great and the communal area is very well kept. Lots of places nearby to eat plus marina is only 2 min drive or 10 min walk . going to old town is cheap via uber. Beach is a walking distance. Will definitely return to this area

    The thing that was good about the location was that it was close to the beach also the resort was pretty close to Albufiera and close to some sourvenir shops.Good value for the money.
