          We're planning to stay five nights. I read that its self catering. We need daily housekeeping for 2 1 bedroom apartments. Is there daily cleaning service & change of towels everyday?

          Hi Luz, Yes there is daily housekeeping. There is also daily self-serve continental breakfast, or you can order something. No need to worry about damp towels.
