    Nice location and nice rooms. Too many stairs. Not good to stay with kids. Management should communicate with Housekeeping staff as they allot us the dirty room with beds not made, dirty bathrooms and towels on the floor.More

    We liked the split level design for the 2 bedroom apartment. Large living and kitchen areas and good size bedrooms. Good size patio to sit outside for meals. The location was great because it was close to the supermarket and town restaurants.More

    The staff were great. The premises generally are very tired and in need of refurbishment. Very steep stairs within apartment made carrying suitcase down very difficult. The apartment needs a good paint. The pool area was good.More
