Little Gem
Opening the door to our unit, we found it to smell quite musky, once we turned the air con on and gave the unit a spray of air freshener it was all good. The unit is small, but, it had everything, including a really comfortable bed. The furnishings were much nicer than I was expecting, given the low price we paid. We certainly loved the pool, and made good use of it, to our surprise, no one else seemed to be there when we were. Last thing to add, is that it is a stairs only complex, thankfully we were on the lowest level, which had the least stairs to climb. We would defiantly stay here again, great value for money, in a good location. win..win.
