We prebooked our apartment at least a month out from arrival and were looking forward to our stay. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 infants. Unfortunately we were given an upstairs room, so had to lug all our bags and 2 small children up very steep external stairs. The rooms were basic, nothing flash to reflect the full rate we were charged. The microwave would only work if door was slammed and otherwise the light would stay on. The toiletries were budget. The tv was a LCD as described but not like the one in advertising picture, just a small one on a cabinet. There was wireless Internet.... At a price.
We had a babysitter to watch our children while at a wedding, and offered to get her dinner - dialled 774 for the restaurant, it rang and rang ... So sent her over to order a pizza for dinner.... Oops no one there. Restaurant closed 6pm Friday evening. And they were charging us peak season rates... So luckily there was a great wee takeaway in town do I had to drive in a collect that, making me late for wedding dinner.
We were just disappointed that as locals to be charged a full rate of $275 per night we have stayed all around the world in 5 star resorts and received much more for our money .
