    The location was good. Near the strip and our friends.

    We were originally given an apartment that was absolutely discusting. Dirty walls, water all over the bathroom floor, Refridgerator broken. After quite a bit of hastle, they gave us a slightly better room. The pool was dirty as well. Not a 3 star establishment by any means.

  • Group of friends

    It was close to the beach and the bars in Oura.

    One of the receptionists was very rude and not very helpful and there were no dishbrush or dishsoap. You couldn't use both stove plates at the same tame because then the power went down.
