The apartment is located in Bain Boeuf, a small village in the North which is quite far from any infrastructure and connected only by buses which go at random intervals and only in the daytime. Renting a car is a must. The apartment IS within walking distance from nice quiet beach, which is good for walks but no good for swimming (shallow water, anchored boats). A very nice beach is 3 bus stops away (10 minutes by bus).
Th equipment of the apartment is the poorest part of the whole experience. It does not correspond at all to what’s shown in the pictures. It is dated and semi-functional. The stove only has 1 stovetop, the microwave does not work at all, the fridge is tiny. All the appliances except the fridge share 1 outlet so only one can be used at a time.
The internet connection is incredibly slow and does not work most of the time. Your devices either won’t see a wifi at all or will see it as a network with no internet connection (tested on many different devices). This is caused by the fact that the router is located in a completely different apartment which you have no access to. We have observed that if the tenants of that apartment are connected, you won’t be able to connect.
Communication with the owners is a problem. Prior to our reservation we tried to determine some of these things, but the owners didn’t answer any questions regarding the location and equipment of the unit. Especially the Internet was crucial to us and we were promised that it would be fast and reliable. The apartment looks different from what’s shown in the picture (the picture has modern white furniture, the actual apartment does not)
The complex itself is nice. The whole residence is gated with a security guard on duty 24/7. The pool is clean most of the time. It is not cleaned every day though and can get dirty (dead frogs, insects, …) towards the end of the cleaning cycle.
The cleaning staff is friendly and helpful and so is the manager of the apartment. All of the staff in the complex is nice.
