Amazingly appointed apartments! Very clean and spacious! But... Unsafe
We stayed in a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment on the 21st floor, our travelling companions occupied the same size and style apartment 1 floor below us!
We booked this apartment with "private time" in mind, a room for us, a room for our friend and a room for the kids!
It had everything you could imagine including a washer drier, which came in very hand at that point of our holiday!
3 bathrooms, all amazing, 2 of them ensuite!
There was and office that could be used a room for a rollaway bed if you had an extra guest!
Plenty of points to plug in your computer! 2 or 3 TVs - with heaps of stations and a DVD Player to occupy the children!
The location was good however it was quite far approx 1 hr from Lo Wu, although there is a metro train station near by, making transport easy! It is very close to "Old and New walking Streets"! Shekou port near by also making it easy to leave via ferry!
Breakfast was fantastic a huge range food, both Chinese and Western!
The staff were friendly and accommodating, cleaners left a huge bowl of oranges for our friend who was ill! And the pest control were more than happy to delay their spraying as we had children in our room!
The down side to this accommodation was the SAFTEY, it seems that the property was built with complete disregard for safety, the doors and windows had no locks, making them easily accessible for kids, the 21 story drop kept us nervous the whole time! One of the windows had the air conditioning box directly outside making it level with the balcony railing! Essentially a "platform" for a child to "take their own life"!
So rather than having a relaxing time, we could not take our eyes of our kids (3 and 5 years), continually following them around the apartment to ensure they didn't open the windows or doors!! At night we both slept with one child each!
But if you are going without kids, awesome place! Bring a electronic translator it will help!
