Nice place, but be in shape if you want to walk back from town
Overall, a good place. Well maintained, nicely situated above the city, so it's quiet.
Some people complain about the stairs. There are elevators, so unless you are claustrophobic, don't worry. The street leading to the condo is steep with very rough cobblestones and can be difficult to walk. Also, the nearest store is several blocks away. The nearest big store is taxi or car distance. The condo itself, is fairly comfortable, but could probably use a couch upgrade. The TV is a 32 incher and there is no cable or antenna, so bring your DVDs. There are two DVD players which work most of the time (but usually freeze up at least once per movie). Good blender and the kitchen is well equipped with pots and pans. The BBQ works OK. The deck is very large and has a table, 4 chairs and two lounge chairs. It had a couple cigarette butts when we arrived, but overall, the place was clean. The beds are comfortable and although the lighting could be better, it was adequate. We told the owners the date and time we would arrive and were told we would be met to tell us how to get into the unit and give us a short orientation. No one was there, but luckily there was a guy there
who may or may not have worked for the place or lived there who helped us get into the unit. The vaunted people who work in the office weren't there for the first 5 days of our visit. It was over Christmas, but 5 days was too long. When they were present, they were nice and helpful. Only one pool was working, but it was nice and never crowded during our entire 7 night stay. If you stay in this place and want to cook, make sure you have a car or stop on the way from the airport. Otherwise you have about a $30 taxi ride to a big store (like Costco, Mega, or Walmart). Taxis are pretty expensive with a ride from town (about 3-5 minutes) costing between $6 and $10, depending on the driver. Negotiate a rate before getting in the cab. Oh, and the dishwasher is loud and made the dishes dirtier, not cleaner. Nice refrigerator, stove. We never turned on the AC but it seemed to be a good one, and each room had it's own and there are fans in every room.
