    Well for the price we pay the apartment his not in great modern condition. The first apartment had no a/c and with so high temperatures it did not work. So we were changed after our request to another one. Bathroom oldie and very small, the mattress terrible for our 60 years old back. Owners are looking obvious to the profit versus quality. We not planning to rent again that apartment. The shower drain was horrible , it does not drain propaly. I had water over my ankle, while showering. Overall we do not want to get again 21A.

    Old outdated furniture. Blankets dirty and old. Smell of urine outside entrance . Space where bed was dangerous and claustraphobic. Dark and dismal feel to the whole apartment. A lot of stairs to get up to it for someone who was not super fit ! Needs a revamp badly. Cant beat the location or the view though. Only good points.

    The television doesn't work properly the image is fizzy and has a crackling noise, it desperately needs an update. The fridge didn't work either though it was connected to the main power...

    Is a very well located flat, plenty of space, bright and clean building with lots of plants that are well looked after, we didn't use the swimming pool but it is also well kept good size and clean, the terrace in the flat is a plus though it doesn't have a view of the marina. Plenty of restaurants around and SPAR for the last minute necessities.

    We had booked to stay here for 2 nights for a friends wedding. After one day we discovered 2 used condoms in the toilet bin. Garvetur refused to take any responsibility complaining that we should have reported it on check in. We were not refunded. I highly encourage you not to stay here. There are other properties around the Marina which are cleaner and managed by more competent estate agents.

    There was some noise from the bars on the marina until around 01:30 am. Also, there was a continuous fan noise, possibly from some air conditioning or ventilation system in the restaurant under the apartment. It was a bit annoying during the night. Other apartments may not have this problem.

    Central location. Good price.

    The noise at night could potentially be a problem but wasn't for me. Till midnight people are walking around talking loud, and till early hours you can hear loud music in the distance. The place felt a little old and could have been in slightly better shape, like the fixtures in the bathroom. There is no WiFi, no mop, kitchen towels, sponges, nor safe, and I couldn't completely lock the door to the balcony.

    I liked that the bedroom was on the second floor, overlooking the Marina with windows that opened entirely. On the first floor is a balcony where I could sit and eat and see the Marina. I had a laundry machine and kitchen available, which was very practical after traveling. It was built like a home with with wood and stone floors.

    Balcony was always in shade. Drilling and hammering from apparent next door from 7am till well after 6 pm every day. Was there for a nice relaxing break but day time was impossible to relax with all this building work. Otherwise was fabulous and certainly would not put me off returning.
