Apartment life rather than hotel experience
Posted 22-Sep-2015 on Wotif
This is like living in an apartment rather than a hotel. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment, which was spacious and having 2 bathrooms is ideal for 2 families or parents with a few kids. The layout is a bit strange - the largest bedroom by far with huge mirrored wardrobes is not the one with the ensuite, air conditioning or the second tv, which we thought would be the obvious choice for the "master" bedroom. The ensuite, air con and the tv are features of one of the smaller bedrooms. The kitchen area has virtually everything needed for food prep (dishwasher, oven, stovetop, microwave etc), which you need because there is no room service, no restaurant, and no food outlets around so you need to drive to get food. There is a lovely breakfast pack in the fridge (cereal, milk, fruit cup, juice) but unfortunately this is not complimentary.
The apartment is very dark, even in the daylight we needed to turn the lights on. This is the because the balcony faces a brick wall. It was also over the top of the entrance / reception - incredibly noisy. On the subject of noise, the walls are absolutely paper thin. We could hear people in other apartments walking in the corridors, opening and closing their doors, talking in their rooms, and using the bathroom.
If you're looking for a hotel, this is not it, no newspapers, no food, not even any cleaning on Sundays.
