Pool area is fabulous and very well kept as are the appartments. The front desk staff could not be nicer or more helpful. Highly recommend this place.

The property was okay, WiFi was very poor. Some minor damage to the kitchen and the kitchen utensils were very average! Supposed to be a 2 bedder was more like a second bed had been squeezed into an unused area! Bed was on coasters on a tiled floor so moved across the room through the night.

Disappointing. Doesn’t look like photo’s, when we stayed the pool was covered in leaves and not cleaned during the 5 days we stayed. The pool area would be great but hardly gets any sunlight from the big trees that drop all the leaves. The rooms are ok but are dated, the microwave in our room continued to spark randomly so didn’t continue trying to use it, on the plus side the rooms do coupe with cable TV. Staff are friendly but the general upkeep really lacks.

Beautiful location. Room was clean. Comfy bed. However smoke alarm went off at 1am and had to evacuate only to find we were the only ones that did? Very strange. Apparently it happens often?
