What do you mean when you say you went independent? Also, could you please share the name of the apartment you booked? Thanks.

Going independent means booking flight and accommodation yourself rather than buying a package holiday.

The OP stayed in a private apartment at the Highland Beach.

Glad you enjoyed yourself hurstie

Ahh right thanks for putting that right Badgerlad - I would probably do the same. However, I'm trying to find an apartment to rent close to the Santana Hotel.
