Beautiful accommodation and an amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

WOW! That was our first impression on arrival in your beautiful studio. It is so well looked after and was immaculate, everything we needed to make our holiday great – even down to cool blocks in the freezer which kept our drinks chilled by the pool! Stunning views from the balcony of some of the pool, gardens and mountains. The air conditioning was well used – great that you can ‘hold’ it when you go out and then ‘resume’ it on your return so it’s not wasted. The pool area is great – kept my son amused all day on the slides and under the bridges. Plenty bars and restaurants in Bonanza Square and Ibensa Square to keep us happy. We had an amazing holiday so a big ‘thank you’ for letting us use your studio – we will be returning next year! X

Lovely Studio Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at this beautiful studio apartment. It was spotlessly clean and had all the comforts of home you would wish for, with fantastic views from the balcony and a wonderful pool complex with snack bar. There were plenty of nice bars and restaurants nearby and a well stocked supermarket just across the road. This complex is in a great location and perfect for families and couples alike. We will certainly book this apartment again, many thanks Catherine and Peter.

super value and very comfortable!!!

  • 5 of 5

we've stayed in this lovely studio apartment for 14 nights. It is very clean and modern. There is one double bed and one sofa bed. Both are very comfortable. The mattress on the sofa bed is very thick (double - it is convenient for a couple).

The double bed is very comfortable too. The aircon and van is a very good combination and we had very good night sleeps even it was very hot outside. The balcony is super as you can relax there with an amazing view. The bathroom is perfect and clean. The kitchen part is really well equipped and I could cook some dish if we did not want to go out for dinner. I could recommend to families with 2 children or even 3 if the kids are young or any couple who wants to have some relaxing holiday for a very reasonable price. The apartment is on the 4th floor so the pool is close. The pool is very clean too and there are pools for children so even very young kids can enjoy. I highly recommend this studio to anyone who wants to have a lovely holiday and want to keep the cost down.
