Normally i wouldn't write bad reviews but here i had to.

THE KEY HOLDERS.

Dave and Annie live directly below the apartment, and are permanent residents, at first they seemed a nice couple but after a couple of days that soon changed (My wife has recently lost someone very close to her this year so this was an opportunity to have a nice stress free and relaxing break).
You have virtually no privacy as the stairs leading to the apartment is on their balcony, my wife was given dirty looks by Annie everyday and made her and me feel very unwelcome. They both act like they are the managers to the complex, giving our orders to people, you could do basically nothing. You cannot use inflatables in the pool so I purchased a 2x3 polystyrene body board for my wife as she cannot swim only to be told by Dave that it's against the rules to use in the pool, even though people were using rubber rings and having ball games and their friends were drinking out of glasses, all of which are supposedly against the rules, so we felt like we were victimised. Dave is that miserable he even made a little 5 year old cry cause he told her she couldn't use a body board too. It's not causing any harm, just plain miserable. Never went in or around the pool after that.

We just felt like we weren't made to feel welcome.

THE ROOM.

Where do I start, when we arrived the room smelt very musty and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in months. It was absolutely disgusting. The bed linen looked like it had already been slept in, dirty, the bed itself is very small and basic, the floors had not been swept or mopped for a considerable amount of time. The bathroom dirty, the shower is not very powerful.
The kitchen area I had to clean myself because it was very unhygienic, all of the plates, cups and glasses were filthy. I would have loved a nice cup of tea in the morning but as soon as I opened the kettle the water looked like dirty toilet water with white stuff floating about. It does state that a cleaner will be in every week, we never seen her/him once.

The kitchen area is also infested with ants so if you do stay here, bring some ant powder or spray.

In the end, we left this apartment and booked a hotel for our final three days.

We have been backpacking in India and the hostels we stayed in was luxury compared to this.

Unless this apartment has a complete overhaul i.e painting, a thorough clean I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone who values privacy or cleanliness.
