Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Hard to get to sleep when you can hear people outside till well after midnight. Luckily the rooms allow noise to filter through the units even when people are indoors so I got to continue eavesdropping after the went inside. At least the scent of their cigarettes drifting in the windows meant I didn't focus all my ire on the noise.

Review:   Older units right next door to a building site. Paper thin walls. Spacious and clean facilities. A little way from shops etc but handy to tourist sights

Review:   Very nice the staff were awesome food was great but had a pudding that had a bit of mold on it . Pool was good but the spa had been left not clean and did not smell like a spa pool that was a shame but otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
