Maybe I expected too much due to the reviews I read.
First of all, we were not given the apartment we booked and the booking website was blamed for it. We were all adults and booked a larger apartment but was allocated with one that had fewer rooms. The place looked full and perhaps they gave it to a larger group.
Very spacious common/living areas but the bedrooms were not big. Looks flash but a lot of the fittings & furnishing I would not attribute to a 5 star accommodation hotel/apartment. There was only one inverter for the whole apartment with 3 bedrooms. A few of us felt the stiflling heat and did not sleep well.
The shower in one of the bathrooms was over a bath and no matter how we tried, water kept dripping onto the floor. Amenities provided were not generous and we could have been given more towels especially when there was a problem with the drip from the bath everytime we showered.
Can't say I would go back there unless my friends insist.
