Not really value for money. Paying over $450 for a one-bedroom standard aparment (2 night stay, Friday and Saturday). Unit needs to be updated, especially their lighting, fresh paint and new carpet. It makes the place looks gloomy...please replace with better lighting so it freshens up the unit. The bed in the bedroom is not very comfy. But sofa in... More

excellent location but the air conditioner on the RSL is just ridiculous noisy and disturbing result in requiring doors and windows closed all the time. walking to most places was easy and convenient. on site parking was useful and the lifts were clean and efficient

As there was nothing else available, and we were on the spot, we settled for the last available - a lower level (level 2) unit that also had ocean views. Unfortunately the only view we had was of...
