This apartment complex had very many positives. The location is perfect, the pool is fantastic, the gym is VERY well decked out. The two bedroom apartment is very spacious, very well decked out and was cleaned daily meticulously. Master bedroom is airconditioned and has a very large ensuite with a huge bath. The second bedroom is a little smaller but still fine. You also get a free parking pay, which again is GREAT!
The only few downsides I can point out is that it does say that they offer free wifi, however on checkin they tell you that you only get a voucher for 500mb then must pay 100 rand for each additional 500mb, so it is not technically true that it includes internet. They offer free wifi in the lobby however this is not really convenient, rather something you would do in a hostel. Also the master bedroom has no power outlet at all, so if you wish to charge your phone you must do it from the lounge, or do as i did and use your laptop to charge your phone. Also the master bedroom is very bright with no block out blinds, the light streams in early so eye shades might be an idea. Lastly, the second bedroom (although does have a power socket) is quite loud as it faces the inner complex which echoes with every door that shuts. If you are a light sleeper you may find it hard to sleep in.
