Stayed in this place as a result of. Timeshare swap. Facilities were very good. Apartment well furnished although, in typical timeshare fashion furniture not of the highest standard and some items were ill fitting. Notwithstanding that the room was kept immaculately clean. Maid service was excellent. All in all a nice place to stay
