    Pretty place/Couldn't book
    -- Lodging is in a gated/secluded area with tree canopies, a few minutes outside of city center, & is old, small and cozy with stairway only, tennis court & an outdoor courtyard-restaurant that held a wedding party the next morning. -- Although we received Confirmation email & were charged the $36 with, the lodging didn't receive their transaction. As we were leaving for a group meet, receptionit said: I need to pay and that the website maybe took my banking info to book placement. Rather than have the cab waiting while we sort it, I paid then, later in the day, called about my bank being charged both $36 from them & $43 by the lodging. -- Basically, can't say I can rate the convenience of booking with since booking on it was ineffective. -- May be best to book directly with these lodgings so one doesn't risk the inconvenience of not knowing what you'll actually be charged, rather than what's promised on this. -- It's the simple inconvenience that the above would avoid an international pay-call to customer service, too, since I wanted to report it timely... in case Hotels' Customer Service couldn't sort it, then I could try directly since the same Receptionist might still be there. Hotels' C.S. staff called the lodging & got back to me saying, they got approval from the lodging to refund their $36. End.

    Great accommodation, staff and facilities.
    I stayed with an 8 year old and we had a great time, though we were not there for long. We sadly arrived too late to use the pool, which did look good, but we did have dinner by the pool. My son enjoyed playing in the mini children play park. The room was an apartment. It had two floors, so very much like being in your own home. Two, yes TWO bathrooms, both with a shower. The lounge area was huge with cable TV. The Wifi was free and fast. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. In the morning before we left for our flight home, we were able to book one of the tennis courts with rackets and balls.. Be aware that to use the pool, there is a charge as was the use of the tennis court.
