We visited these apartments for 10 nights in November 2015. I was intially very wary due to the harsh reviews so decided to email the hotel to ask about the cleaning of the rooms. I was assured that we would be given the service we required and not to worry. We paid £321 for 10 nights which I thought was...

Lovely location but poor accommodation. Spent a staycation a few months ago with my boyfriend. Even though we had a great time, we were not comfortable.

Do apologise for not meeting your expectations. Water issues have been a concern in general on island and we are considering some resolutions to this problem. Our pool is serviced daily by our pool attendant. All rooms have sheer panels to encourage natural light but if requested a heavier drape is used as some guest thinks that heavy drapes keep...

The apartment was pretty basic. Good space, and bathroom was in good condition. The only major issue we had was that the apartment was very hot at night. Air conditioning was working....but not doing a good job. So sleeping was made difficult. We were hardly there during the day, so overall it was ok. I would stay there again. Staff...

Awful is the only word that does this hotel justice. Although people say this is not a 5* hotel, it is still pricey considering it is a dump in the middle of paradise.
