I went with low expectations having read some of the reviews here, but was pleasantly surprised to have my expectations exceeded. We are 3 adults and 1 infant, and booked the 1-bedroom apartment. We arrived at 3pm (check-in time) and didn't even have to show our Agoda reservation, they already had us on their system. Since we booked via Agoda, we didn't get their preferential rate, so without prompting, they upgraded us to a 2-bedroom (both rooms ensuite!) apartment. We found our room without much difficulty, and found it spotlessly clean. Even when I moved the Tv cabinet to make more crawl space for the baby, the floor underneath the cabinet was relatively clean. Decor is certainly not 5-star, but you're not paying 5-star prices either. Most important for us was that there was ample space for baby to play on the floor, the beds were comfortable, we had a kitchen to wash baby's things (no cutlery or crockery though), and the pools were very baby- and kid-friendly. Another reviewer negatively commented on the shallow pools, but that means that a non-swimmer adult can jump in and save a drowning child/infant, so that's a plus for me. There are lots of shops nearby so we could easily get necessities. Buffet breakfast was large and varied, but certainly not 5-star. Again, I'd like to point out that you're not paying 5-star prices here. We paid US$100 for a 2-bedroom 2-bath hotel room with pool and buffet breakfast for 3 persons. Can't beat that for value, and certainly made the holiday very easy with baby and baby gear in tow.
