We got this unit on the internet hoping to find a low budget comfortable place with ocean views views. The number of the unit was 203 Second Level. The ocean views we got which was seen when you went onto the side balcony. That wasn't too bad. Clean enough after I had swept the place and mopped around where the cleaners had missed.. Then everything was downhill. The furniture in the living area had seen better days with chipped arm rests and frayed cushions. One bedside table where there should have been two. I don't think that the place had been vacuumed for a while because the level of dust and sand that came up when I swept the carpet was pretty bad.
I had difficulties getting a good night sleep because the mattress was so uncomfortable. After trying to put up with it for three days I removed two lounge cushions and put them on the bed under the sheet so that I could have a bit of comfort.. When I explained to the caretaker she was not very helpful. if the units are all privately owned it wasn't her problem. It was a case of out of sight out of mind as long as they get the money. I have had a spinal fusion, but I don't tell everyone my problems. It took me a few days for my back to settle when I found another place that had better facilities.
Maybe the units are not all like this one but please don't go into number 203
