Liked: Cleanliness
Location, view and actual apartment was good - poor communication on booking (booked an airport transfer and no one turned up) - facilities also poor within complex - lift wasn’t working for the week we were there and had to carry luggage up and down 3 floors - and air conditioner didn’t work in bedroom - reported it to reception and they said they would fix, however, at no time during the week did anyone look at it

The apartment was spacious and had a fridge ,freezer ,washing machine etc which was great . Lovely views . Attention to detail lacking however . Having to ask for a plug to have a bath is not acceptable . A broken fan isn’t either . A shame as it would put me off returning.
