6/10 Good

Toiletries good, fridge and other household materials great. The Receptionist was great and was knowledgeable and helpful. Good car parking. The hotel environment was not like an hotel. The window air conditioner was noisy. The major unsafe item is the shower exit. We knocked our foot against the lower shower cubicle. It is unsafe

6/10 Good

The location of this property is great. It was in walking distance to the beach as well as town. There was only one window which was in the main living area and overlooked the parking lot. Because we utilized the sofa bed hit was hard to have the curtain open and made it very dark. But time in the unit was limited so it wasn't that big a deal.
