Take cleaning products, avoid studio no 24
Having been invited in to see the studio next door which had less mould and smelled less, avoid being given ground floor studio no 24 if you can. The very small ants running around the clean floor are really annoying to find climbing up and running around on your lovely clean bed. Wiping the floor tiles by the bed with boiling water every night and leaving the wet cloth there deterred them enough to be able to sleep with less anxiety after that. Other No No's: The kitchen and bathroom smell of damp. There is mould on the kitchen fittings, bathroom drain clogged and slow to drain, drain covers left off and a bit smelly. The kitchen pedal bin pedal and sides sticky and grotty. The walls are thin so if your neighbours are sitting out smoking and talking fairly quietly, you will still hear them, and the smoke will get into your room. You will certainly hear all loud children and drunk tourists getting home at 3am. Shabby furniture and appliances, hand held shower and hard single beds not a problem as I was using it as a base for exploring the island, but nobody wants ants in their bed. Positives: The room was cool even when 30 deg C outside, so no need to pay the extra for air conditioning. The complex is a downhill five min walk from the beach strip, restaurants and bars. There are bus stops outside - ridiculously easy to get around the island on air conditioned buses. Take cleaning products + sponge + slippers or stay elsewhere if you can afford it.
