Well, my last review in May, 2014 was headed "Can't wait until the next visit". Unfortunately, due to the Canadian $ vs US $ it took until Christmas 2016 fulfill the dream. Norm has gone on to new endeavours but Joe is still there after 10 years and now we have Michael. Both are just great at customer service, friendly,...

A place in the sun is one of those special places that people go back to because they feel at home away from home. I had a place like that as a young adult into my 50's. Thinking back it was a great place to go to get complete relaxation. It was friendly, adequate, well kept and outdated. This is...

A place in the sun is just plain delightful. Michael at the front desk is the most gracious man you will ever meet and the owners are so lucky to have him represent them. The rooms are clearly old school but beautifully maintained. Even the studios are spacious and have a little kitchenette. Our bungalow was spotless, spacious, tastefully furnished...

Everything worked well. Staff was most accommodating and friendly. Grounds were lovely and the pool was heated to a very comfortable temperature. Hot tub so relaxing. Other guests at the hotel were a friendly and an interesting bunch. Location was great near the river walk so that I could take our dog out there for a morning and evening stroll....

We stayed there for three nights in March, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although we had a small standard studio, it was fine for us two with a luxurious king-sized bed, a little stove top and fridge and private patio in back. The front door led to a beautiful, green courtyard and the pool area. Family-run operation and well-maintained. Since...

Well, we had another wonderful stay at A Place in the Sun (though too brief). The room was clean and, since we like to cook in the places in which we stay, we were pleased with the well stocked kitchen, utensils and pots and pans, etc.

I stayed here for two nights with my Wife and our small dog. It was nothing short of perfect. The room was warm and comfortable, the kitchen was cute and functional, the bed was very comfortable and the grounds were well kept and QUIET. The pool and hot tub are salt water. Which, feels amazing compared to anything else. Michael...
