I didn't really like the tiled floors. Also, the entry is shared between two different rooms and when your neighbours enter and exit their rooms, it's a loud process. I liked the covered parking area. I didn't like the location of the laundry machines. They were far away from the rooms and outside. The location isn't too great as it... More

The Apartments are very well appointed rooms for families. I was pleasantly surprised at the roominess of them and the complexes facilities. The pool area was very well laid out with bbqs gas and electric, fridge table settings very roomy and best thing was my kids loved it. Thank you for a wonderful stay Will definitely be back.
