Two Bedroom Apartment on the Beachfont

Pros: The apartment was very roomy, with comfortable furnishings. It also had air conditioning, security doors and insect screens.
Cons: Small things like a sharp knife, a second clean t-towel, and the towels could have been changed daily. Everything great tho.
Location: Halfway round the island from the town side. Great restaurants nearby, food across the road, and great beaches right there and around this area.
Very pleasant five days spent at this complex. Supermarket just across the road. Beautiful beach and great views from our apartment. Large and roomy apartment with daily housekeeping. Great staff and helpful reception staff. Highly recommended.

Thank you for your comments. These are a valuable in meeting our guests satisfaction. Sorry your towels weren't replaced daily with the servicing. Maybe this was because they were hung up instead of being placed in the shower cubicle as per our conservation points in the compendium and in room notice. Thank you for choosing to stay with us and I look forward to possibly hosting you again in the future.
