The Unit was well presented and the pool is great. What I liked best was the air conditioning which was brilliant and the best I've felt anywhere in coping with the extreme humidity days when they occur.

The property was in a great location, very close to everything but our room looked very tired. There were fake flowers everywhere, which made the room look very cheap. Plus there was no chopping board even though there was a kitchen. It made cooking with two kids very hard.

Great apartment but pool one of the key reasons I booked it and it was not heated and very cold. Too cold to swim in 25 degree weather.

The grounds were beautiful and the location was handy to the beach and restaurants. The view from the balcony over the grounds and pool was beautiful. Although very cold the pool is stunning and very relaxing to pull up a deck chair and relax. The apartment we were given was on the third level and quite a walk from the elevator which is a drama when you have three kids wanting to go to the pool and beach and back multiple times a day. The kitchen facilities would be ok to cook for one to two people but not a family. Everything was satisfactory for what we paid except for one detail - the master bed smelt like sweat. The linen looked clean so the smell must be coming from the mattress. I had to spray perfume just so I could go to sleep because laying there thinking I was laying in another persons sweat was very uncomfortable for me. I would suggest a waterproof mattress protector to contain the smell.
