The Apartment was excellent and so was Maria who was very helpful before we arrived and during the stay, we originally booked 1 week and was booked into the Hilton at Kingston for the last week, but after enjoying the Apartment, pools and location we cancelled and booked another week with Maria.
The Apartment pictures do not do this place justice, it was very clean and well equipped with the essentials, everything in the kitchen, washer & dryer, living room had a flat screen TV with cable and an apple TV box with access to Netflix. Air con in both bedrooms, 10 minutes on with doors closed and the rooms were like a freezer and would last all night, rooms also have ceiling fans.
The veranda area was the main area we spent our time sitting, at breakfast we were visited by the two Green Monkeys who would come very close on the grass as intrigued with our 3 month old baby daughter.
The pools, the first one right outside the room was made up of three pools, we never had to share any of the pools it was always quiet, the infinity pool a stroll just up the hill has lovely views and was a sun trap. We spent a couple of full days up here and only had to share the pool once, it was incredibly peaceful, you could here birds the breeze in the trees and the sound of the waterfall from the pool.
We never used the gym or tennis courts so cannot comment on them.
Tips for apartment buy lots of the Mosquito coils that you burn, they are very cheap we would set one off each night behind the pillar and this would keep the mosquito's from biting for few hours and would then set another off if still out drinking.
To keep the living room cool as no air con or ceiling fan, open the front door and the patio door this creates a breeze through the room and cools down nicely.
Shops small shop (trimart) at the bottom of the hill and in the town a larger supermarket (Jordans) so can stock up with everything.
One beach we used a few times was Harrismith Villa Beach, this is an abandoned villa\plantation house, the beach is exactly as you dream of a deserted beach, its one of the top 10 voted beaches in the world. never saw anyone else the days we visited and a very nice local climbed the palm trees to get fresh coconuts for us for a few dollars.
Eating lots of places, have to try Chefette if you have kids
We would recommend this Apartment and the next holiday to Barbados we will look to stay here again, thank you so much Maria
