I booked a visit here to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and escape some intense Canadian winter weather. APITS was perfect. The personal touches throughout, the conscientious and well informed staff, the kind owners and the very dedicated and attentive house keeping staff made our visit an absolute pleasure. The gardens and pool / hot tub area are a wonderful...

This is a comfortable, old style hotel. My room (#14) was small (as I expected) but got plenty of light. The kitchen area was small (tucked into a closet, I think) but was fine for what we needed...making light lunches/snacks/etc. It was fully stocked with plenty of utensils. The beds were comfortable and the wifi strong. The pool and gardens...

Well, my last review in May, 2014 was headed "Can't wait until the next visit". Unfortunately, due to the Canadian $ vs US $ it took until Christmas 2016 fulfill the dream. Norm has gone on to new endeavours but Joe is still there after 10 years and now we have Michael. Both are just great at customer service, friendly,...

A place in the sun is one of those special places that people go back to because they feel at home away from home. I had a place like that as a young adult into my 50's. Thinking back it was a great place to go to get complete relaxation. It was friendly, adequate, well kept and outdated. This is...

A place in the sun is just plain delightful. Michael at the front desk is the most gracious man you will ever meet and the owners are so lucky to have him represent them. The rooms are clearly old school but beautifully maintained. Even the studios are spacious and have a little kitchenette. Our bungalow was spotless, spacious, tastefully furnished...

Everything worked well. Staff was most accommodating and friendly. Grounds were lovely and the pool was heated to a very comfortable temperature. Hot tub so relaxing.

We stayed there for three nights in March, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Although we had a small standard studio, it was fine for us two with a luxurious king-sized bed, a little stove top and fridge and private patio in back. The front door led to a beautiful, green courtyard and the pool area. Family-run operation and well-maintained. Since...
