We stayed 5 nights here, lovely two bed room apartment - newish, modern.
Bottle of wine on arrival - very nice.
Few things that were a bit of a let down - ants in one of the bathrooms (constantly), even though there was nothing split or out, however understand with the hot weather, sometimes this cant be helped. A lot of the dishes, cutlery and glasses were a bit dirty...
dishwasher and washing machine smelled, and once you opened them both - stunk the whole apartment out. We didn't use these due to this but also (more for the clothes) would have made the clothes smell. For those planning to stay longer and need to wash their clothes - keep this in mind. Also, the place didnt look like it had been dusted for months and months - only the parts that are used all the time looked clean i.e. bathroom, toilet, etc... tables and bedside tables, parts of the kitchen - very, very dusty and sticky.
Although these are advertised as serviced apartments, only 'service' the apartment once a week (not daily or every second day or on request). Also keep in mind - tea, coffee, sugar and milk are extra. There's a few available in the apartment upon arrival, however after that, you are to pay per sachets, teabag, etc.
Also - note if you get a deal with (or is inc) 'complimentary wifi' - does not mean 24/7- is so many hours e.g. one, two, three, etc... after you use the hours, you must pay per hour.
all in all, is a very nice place - if the things mentioned dont matter to you, its a fantastic place! nice scenery, very quiet, parking space - we had an upstairs apartment, which I think is better (cant hear the people below), and aircon in the main area, and both bedrooms was a plus!
