My sister and I stayed in Brian's apartment E5 for the 4th time, on our annual "girls holiday". As usual it was fantastic, luxurious, clean, convenient etc. Thanks for keeping the high standards up Brian, you really do make it a very simple yet rewarding experience.
Believe me, I would not return to the same place if the standard was not very, very high. Some of the best things about the apartment are: Free WiFi, satellite TV, marble floors, luxurious kitchen and bathrooms, the biggest sofa bed I have ever seen and apparently the most comfortable, great staff, everything well maintained, fully equiped kitchen, dish-washer, washing machine, 20 feet to the pool from the private terrace. I read someone elses review recently which mentioned traffic noise, (I am not sure for which apartment though), but I can honestly say that I have never heard any traffic or car noises at Mar Azul pool side or Brian's apartment. Oh and in peak season (as of July 2011) there is a pool bar / restaurant and they even do take away for residents in the evening!!! What more could you ask for. Thanks Brian.
