Great stay, we were staying at Apartments 3. It's not too far from the airport and quiet central for walking around and going to the nearest shopping complex. The room is very spacious, more than enough room for all 3 of us. You have a fridge, micro wave and TV (which unfortunately doesn't much English choices). I loved that you...
