Why Rod Bryant chose Praia D'el Rey
This is a large, new, modern, quiet home in an excellent location in the resort. It is about 200m from the golf club, 100m from the tennis centre, the pool for the apartment is on the other side so there is no noise. The main road through the resort is on the other side so again there is no noise. It has many balconies and a peaceful view.
