Thank you for taking the time to review your stay Brad, we appreciate the feedback. We checked out the AC unit in your apartment and it was switched to fan rather than cooling, an easy mistake to make. Not sure what the issue was with the fan cord, but they are normally plugged into the power point all the time so that they can just be switched on when the guest arrives, or goes to bed. Anyway, I hope that you had a good stay at On The Beach and we look forward to welcoming you back one day.

Very enjoyable and pleasant stay.. the apartment was very clean. The only downside is the phone reception & wifi strength is really really bad.
