“Comfortable apartment, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 for a stay in November 2011

We found the apartment to be a good size and well furnished, overlooking the pool and lagoon. The pool is unheated as in the description but there are heated pools available during the winter months at the Sheraton and Movenpick Hotels and at the Clubhouse, downtown. We personally came for the winter sun which was great after the rain at home!
The apartment appliances were as described with plenty of utensils. The patio off the Dining area was great for breakfasting as it caught the morning sun and gave the best views from the apartment. The furniture was comfortable and English channels were amongst the many available on the TV. The channel variety makes the apartment appealing to all nationalities but I have to say that I didn't go there to watch TV all day!
The two bedrooms are spacious and the one that we used had a really comfortable Kingsize bed and a large dressing mirror with sockets available for the usual hairdriers and straighteners that women can never travel without. The showers in both bathrooms were great with an endless supply of hot water. The aircon units in tha bedrooms can switch between cooling and heating depending upon the time of year, as does the unit in the living area.
The town and restaurants were five minutes away by toc toc (the local taxi service) or a fifteen minute walk.
As with all hot climates take your mozzie plugs and repellants.
This apartment would be great for anyone with mobility problems because everthing is on one level, no steps.
The agent was great, arranged pickup and departure and was there to meet and greet

This apartment is a good size (a bit spartan) and well placed on the complex for access to the pool (Please note this is unheated and only suitable for use from May to September due to the water being so cold ,it is unsupervised).
The pool depth starts at 3 foot and goes to 6 foot
Part of the immediate area is a lagoon suitable for canooing on if you have one.( It has a sloped entrance so small children will need supervision )

The apartment has major appliances of :- cooker /oven/microwave/fridge /freezer/toaster/ washing machine
There is a (small) supply of pans ,crockery,cookwear and glasses
Dining area has table and 6 chairs (wicker seats &no cushions so better not to sit too long)

Small public garden area in front of patio and public footpaths to pool etc.View here is of the lagoon and golf course.

Open plan sitting area attached to dining and kitchen areas and having 3 seater couch ,2 arm chairs and coffee table.
