3/5 Okay

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Amenities
Good location being right on the water & beautiful views across the bay. The overall resort is however dated, some apartments have been renovated by owners. The apartment I booked showed images of a renovated apartment but we weren’t allocated one of those. Also certain the beds had bedbugs as well. The entry system is also dated for entry & exit. Overall it is only a 3.5* resort so amenities are as at but price doesn’t not reflect what you get.

Love the sea views. I found the lack of wifi was a drawback.

Great views
This place has great views from the balconies. The property is in need of an overall refresh as it is showing its age although our room was renovated with only the downstairs bathroom that needed a Reno. The only major problems with this property besides is age were the carpet in the stairs that are very old and need replacing but we're cleaned regularly during our stay. The garage with the old key lock still could do with an upgrade. But all in all a great place to stay

The water View was great, so was the location & the unit was very clean with comfortable furniture. I didn't like the difficulties we had with all the locks getting in & out, i think they need updating
