Really great spot, perfect location.. Facilities were good, staff very helpful and the place very clean and comfy. Beautiful view from both bedroom and living area of spacious well equipped apartments. Had to laugh reading some of the very few less positive reviews written by obviously very hard work guests... Can't fault the staff and facility. Very good value.
