These apartments are now 13 months old, and still in top condition. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment, although as there was only my husband and I, we were charged one bedroom price & the second bedroom and bathroom was locked off. It had all the facilities needed for a self-conatined apartment. The kitchen had everything needed, we ate lunch & breakfast there but went out most nights. We did cook a couple of evenings & that was fine, could do with an additional power point in the kitchen, however. The TV now has some Pay TV channels.
Agree that there was no hooks in the bathroom, but the view from the shower & bath made up for it - and we sun dried the towels on the clothes rack on the balcony.
The rooms were very clean on arrival - could smell the bleach, so opened the windows & all was fine.
We were also recommended Terraces Restaurant - with a free bottle of wine - unlike the previous reviwer we thought the food was great & Ok priced, we too were the only ones there, but the prevuious nigt was reported to be busy. We ate breakfast once at Capers -great, but the prices for dinner were too expensive for us.
Both Managers were helpful with lots of information.
