    Thank you for reviewing our establishment. The beds are new and are firm. We had complaints that the previous beds were too soft.

    Reviewed 27 April 2017

    This accommodation was better than I expected although the bathrooms, fixtures and furnishings were a bit outdated. However, my overall stay was not slighted in least as the rooms and beddings were clean. Breathtaking sea views and close proximity to all amenities.

    Thank you for reviewing our establishment. Each unit is individually owned, and some of the owners have been able to invest and upgrade their units, others have not.

    I also found it a bit strange. I really think they should've included that fee in the rate. Simpler and raises no questions.
