Fantastic, clean, accommodation on a budget. We stayed two weeks for the price of one in a hotel.

The apartments are about 20 minutes walk from the beach and are in quite an industrial area, but don't let this put you off. Once you reach the apartments themselves they are set in beautiful gardens and are very peaceful. At first we were worried that we would be spending a fortune on taxis if we did not fancy the walk to the beach/restaurants, but then we found the local buses! Travel anywhere on each particular bus route, no matter how far, for literally pence. We went to and from the beach and explored various places on the island using the buses and it was a great way to immerse ourselves in the local culture and meet some real characters along the way. The rooms are kept immaculately and although the facilities are basic, the bed was comfortable and there was always hot water. Having the communal kitchen was very useful, as we could make breakfast each morning and cook evening meals if we didn't fancy venturing out. We also struck up a great relationship with Trevor the security guard, who opend the gates for us when we returned late at night!
My only issue with the apartments was not really with Candle Glow, but with Expedia, as they give you a total price and then when you go to pay you get a shock as government tax and a service charge is added! I am going to seek remuneration as I feel I was misled. If accommodation is subject to these additional charges it should be included in the FINAL price, or at the very least say 'subject to tax and service charge'
