Agent was waiting for us as we arrived, the welcome pack was a lovely touch. The location of the apartment was great just over the road from the Plaza, the complex was secure and well maintained. The apartment was clean, and provided a good base, we enjoyed having our breakfast on the veranda, and the roof was a great place for a bbq, the pool was a lovely place to relax. The transport service that was recommended by the agent was great too, overall a hassle free relaxing holiday.
