We had a standard 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (as opposed to deluxe, some of which have balconies, but it's potluck if you get a balcony or not) for 4 of us and spent a week here on holidays. The gardens here are lovely, which was a major attraction for me. The staff were also fantastic, we had an issue with our flight home being delayed (by 20 hours!!) and they were super helpful. We also had a wonderful housekeeper, who was efficient and very friendly. Great staff was a definite highlight of Treetops. The restaurant was also good the one night we ate there.
The apartment itself was surprisingly small and dark (we may have been facing the wrong way and so had little sunlight). The beds were very comfortable, bathrooms quite nice and it was all very clean. My main issue with the apartment was that it was quite small, and there wasn't dining space for 4 people. Only 2 dining chairs and a bench to sit at. I would have hated to have to cook there regularly, as the bench was also quite low. A dining table would have been really nice (but there is no room for it in this apartment).There is also no drawer space in the second bedroom.
The pool was beautiful - as lovely as it looks in their website photos. If you have young children though it may be a bit challenging. The pool area behind the waterfall is impossible to see into unless you are right there, and you aren't able to walk around the entire pool on the edge. You have to walk up steps and around and then back down. When your kids are at the opposite end mucking around (!) you need to lose visual contact with them to go to them, wade through thigh deep water, or scream like a fish wife to get to them. None of which are great options.
Overall, I really enjoyed my stay here. Next time I would get a bigger apartment as the regular ones were too small for the 4 of us.
