We stayed here as part of a month long road trip. Our initial impressions were good and the resort looked inviting from the street.
There was off street parking, which was important when we had a car loaded with goods that we didn't want to completely unpack, althought the absence of allocated parks meant that sometimes you had to park a long way from the lifts.
Our apartment was clean and spacious and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay, althought the bed was a liitle uncomfortable.
The one complaint was the balcony, which was too small and if you sat out there you were bombarded with the noise and heat from the air conditioning unit. This was unfortunate as we like to sit on the balcony and read.
The pool and spa looked inviting, but the spa and indoor pool were continually monopolised by he same very large group of (probably) overseas tourists. There wasn't even enough room to soothe our aching feet after the long trek into the main part of town, and back. Some sort of regulation needs to applied here so that all facilities are available to all guests at some stage, at least.
As I've read in other reviews, the staff don't seem to care aboiut being helpful just pointing to brochures and the amount of information being something like 'Over there'.
Unfortunately, our final impression was bad. The downstairs bins obviously hadn't been emptied for days and the stench was foul. As well they were over full and the rubbish was laying all around the bins and onto the car parks. Disgusting and a real negative. A shame, because otherwise we would stay here again despite the price.
