I recently returned from a 10 day stay with my Uncle and Dad, staying in a 2 bedroomed apartment, and for the price paid and what we needed it for, it was ideal.
The rooms, whilst not modern, were clean and basic. Limited wifi coverage, but that could be found in communal areas. Safe in room which was free of charge. Air con in both bedrooms which was relitivly quiet, fan in the living area. Small porch area with seating. Kitchen was basic, but allowed us to keep food costs down for breakfasts and lunches, instead of having to eat out. Maid service was quick and efficient, but came during the afternoon.
The 'complex' shares its bar with the public, and whilst it is a good sign that it's so popular in the evening, this does increase noise level and traffic - on many occassions our driveway was used by everyone else but us. Other public areas included the pool, which was small on first impressions, but after seeing the amount of people using it, was the perfect size. Again, open to the public so weekends were slightly busier.
Over all, if you are looking for a safe place for you and your family to stay, with freedom to do your own thing within the apartment and communal areas, The Mayfair is a good place to start. However, if you are looking for something very commercialised and 'American', you should look elsewhere. This was why we enjoyed it, but it's not for everyone.
