Clifton Sands was delightful, with just the right blend of privacy, view, comfort and wildlife to make our stay very enjoyable and very affordable. When we drove in and saw all those lovely Bougainvillea hanging baskets we knew that we would be taken care of well, and we were.

Linda the proprietor was very friendly and helpful, pool was service daily and maintained, perhaps servicing the apartments price should be included with booking rather than extra charge. Close to public transport and shopping Village.
