    The building and surrounds very tired. The girls at the desk were very friendly and helpful. Not been able to use the left over credit is not very good business and if this would have been explained when booked we could have upgraded etc

    Really cannot understand anybody findng fault with this place. Huge appartment, spotlessly clean, great value, right in the beach, fabulous location for whale watching and a few drinks at the dock in the evening.

    We had the same problem as I wanted to go shopping at the Marina and my husband wanted to go visit a sick friend. Result I couldn't go shopping. There are many reasons why I could not recommend this establishment.
