The reception staff were on the ball and accommodating through our late arrival due to delayed flights. Amenities were very good particularly the generous lap pool and sauna. Barbecue areas are located all around and were clean. Some areas on the apartment were not as clean as would be expected (front entrance) and there was no water jug in the kitchen. Plus a little maintenance required on air-conditioning. Overall, would stay there again without question.
