“Excellent customer service and value for money. My boyfriend and I were trying to find a place for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 2 years and the receptionist was able to help us found a lovely 1 bedroom condo that was only steps away from all the restaurants and activities. The condo itself was clean, well decorated and just what we were looking for. We were also able to get 10% off our booking for making the reservation directly over the phone! Overall, we had a lovely stay and will definitely be coming back.”
