1 Bedroom - Min. 3 nights

Great and spectacular unit
The unit is great. Nothing bad at all. Just exactly like what we expect. The only thing that bothering us is the apartment just so confusing as it is in the same building with another hotel yet different management. So for check in will be in the tourist center at the corner of the turning road to the apartment. Tourist center is running by the same management of this unit. We stays there for several nights and we have a problem with our parking. Since the price that we paid for the stays isnt include the parking, so we have to pay extra one off during our stay. Several times our designed parking has been parked by a guest of the hotel althought there is a sign on the parking lot said the lot belong to the apartment only. So we have to park outside the building and walking back to the building. It is more annoying when we have to walk in the rain most of the time from outside parking to the building even we pay the parking lot in the building. Other than that, the unit in this apartment just worth for stays.

Central but lacking Bang for Buck
Central, View, Service
The stay was overall good. We found some of the fittings in the bathroom were poorly fitted for example the toilet roll holder was loose and stayed at an angle pointing down to the floor.

apartment? hotel?
It has us clean a room. e.g. If you leave the trash in the room, you may be charged. Because they said it is not a hotel but an apartment. But you have to pay hotel service fee. They refused to check the room together, though they might charge you extra fee due to dirty usage.

Convenient & cozy
Location, all-inclusive
We had a good stay overall. Exceptional location with easy access to the reef terminal within 2 min walking. Just two points - the reception was not the one on G/F. When our key card got out of order, we could not go back into the room from the swimming pool. Sadly, we had to go all the way to the reception on the next street to get the key cards fixed.... Second, free wifi was not provided, not even in lobby... This is not quite up to standard for today.
