We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again. We loved the views and particularly enjoyed using the heated pool and spa. We found the location handy to everything we needed and could easily walk wherever we were going.
On the downside (small things) we didn't like or eat the scrambled eggs at the buffet breakfast, they were too processed looking which was disappointing, it would be nice to have the choice of fried eggs. The breakfast was advertised as $20 per person but we were charged $37. We were given a complicated explanation as to why the charge of $37 was correct however when we repeated that the price was advertised as $20 the charge was corrected.
We had booked for 3 people but the cutlery/towels were for 2 people and our tea/coffee/milk supplies were not refilled when the room was serviced so we had to ask for more.
There was minor damage to the bathroom cabinet which if fixed would make the apartment much nicer.
There were no tennis balls when we went to play tennis as they had been lost by the previous players. We got some tennis balls ourselves but found they went over the wall fairly easily so maybe it would be good to add some wire above the existing wall.
