Everything at A Place in the Sun was fine - the room was comfortable, if very small, and had all the amenities we needed, including free WIFI, which we appreciated. We did find the air-con quite fierce (due to the size of the room), and the fan a little noisy, but this was not a huge problem.
The private courtyard outside the room was quite barren - basically a concrete square with sunloungers and chairs - could be dramatically improved by some small touches - such as greenery.
The pool area is pleasant, with loads of chairs and sun loungers. Some guests prefer the misters, which take the edge off the hot sun, but we quite liked the warm dry breeze.
The "breakfast" consists of muesli, cornflakes etc and pre-pack pastries and muffins (available from the office), which we were a little disappointed with. Honestly - I think it would be better not to offer breakfast at all than to offer these.
Overall, perfectly OK, but we really don't understand what all the fuss is about.
