“a great play to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2006

We had a great time staying here. The apartment was clean and spacious and the pools are sparkling clear and warm. The grounds have that lush tropical appearance that makes such a welcome change from home. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and only too happy to provide advise on the best things to do. Can't wait to stay again!

If you are considering staying at these apartments and have visited their website be warned that the pictures used are very old.

One of the reasons we chose these over other apartments was because they appeared to be bright and well lit. The owners/managers have allowed the plantation to grow to excessive proportions which blocks out natural light.

The pools are tiny and not helped by the overgrown trees.

We stopped in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment. Even with ALL of the apartment lights on the rooms were still too dark. Was a little surprised that for a 4* rating there wasn't a dishwasher in the apartment requiring hand washing of all utensils and crockery, particularly as they advertise themselves as having fully equipped kitchen.

It isn't really centrally located and it's a 10/15 minute walk before you hit the main street. To compensate there is regular bus transport in both directions at a minimal cost.

Management were always keen to assist with tour bookings and provide the benefit of their experience.
