Four of us stayed in the penthouse unit for four nights. The price came to $250 per person for the length of the stay ( a grand total of $1000 usd).
Our arrival to the condo was a bit of a trip from the airport. Several cab drivers did not recognize the address and we spent a fair amount of time driving around. Finally I used google maps on my cell and found the place. The phone for the property went unaswered when I tried to call for help with directions. I was later told that phone service was out in the area.
The owner of the property met us as we arrived and was quite pleasant. He checked us in and gave us a general overview of the area. He was present and available during out stay.
The accomodations were acceptable. The space was exceptionally clean, that should be noted. The space was furnished with average, yet acceptable furnishings. A very small kitchen was also appointed with dishes, silverware and the like.
One note should be made, at least for the penthouse. Although WiFi was listed as being available in the unit, it really isnt. Our lap tops and iPhone worked in about a 2 square foot area on the balcony. And even then it was spotty. If reliable WiFi service is important to you, this is not the unit for you.
Again, aside from the lack of WiFi, the space was clean and met our minimum needs. I think we may have overpaid a bit, but considering the exceptional cleanliness of the unit maybe we were in the ball park of a normal rate. The location is in a decent area.
But dont let the term "penthouse" suggest extra luxury. It simply means its at the top level of the building. This property is largely average.
