My partner and I stayed two nights here in May this year. Clearly the owners of this place aren't short of business judging by the rates they charge for this place, its astronomically overpriced, befitting of a 4-5 star luxury hotel or boutique accommodation, that a run down apartment. To begin with, they didn't have a record of our reservation but kindly offered to put us in a larger room than we had booked. I can't imagine how small the bed in the original room must have been, because in the 1 bed apartment we got, (nice outlook overlooking the street) the bed certainly was not a queen as advertised. I notice we're not the first to complain about the bed size and clearly the owners don't care either, because the advertising literature and website still claim they have queen beds in all the rooms. They are only doubles and small ones at that. To really compound this, we discovered that the bedroom had no curtains on the windows, except for the transparent netting hanging from the curtain rail. Fortunately we managed to hang the blanket provided, from the "curtain" rail to try and block out the light. Once we had all this sorted and climbed into the (micro) bed for the night, we discovered to our delight that the extractor fan in the bathroom didn't turn off and runs continuously, providing an annoying dull hum 24/7. We should have complained at this stage, however it was a Birthday weekend and we decided to let things slide and just enjoy ourselves. However, the final straw in persuading me to write this review was when, the following evening, we decided to watch a dvd we'd brought with us, only to discover that there was no dvd remote control, so we were unable to operate and select options on the dvd player and watch what we wanted! To top it all off, the place isn't particularly clean. The shower was good though. Talk about paying a premium for location. Although, the ocean beaches are still about a 20-30 minute walk away. Very overpriced.
