"Not what i expected"
First of all, i just wanted to say thanks to ms Nadia for the apt 43. I feel bad writing this review but i would like the next person who decide to rent from her to be aware of what they are getting … More
Thank you for your stay at the apartment. I would like to take this opportunity to address the comments.
Firstly, the apartment has been completely redecorated, however it was not necessary to change bathroom fixtures and fittings at the time. I note that the taps may be tarnished due to over cleaning and the sea salt but they work very well and are clean. They are the next thing on our list to replace but they cannot take away from what is an extremely lovely apartment where we and friends holiday several times a year. September 2014 being our last visit.
As advertised, the apartment is a 1 bedroom en suite (leading off the bedroom) with an extra double bed in the very large living room.
The kitchen and bathroom were completely repainted and photos on the website show all rooms.
Thoughts on the decor is entirely a personal opinion, some people like the original Caribbean effect others may like an ultra modern style. Clearly this authentic Caribbean style with it's distressed effect louvre windows is not to everyone's taste. It's clear you know Crane Ridge very well but still fail to appreciate it's very authentic charm. Perhaps, one of the new inclusive holiday resorts at 3 times our cost would have been more suitable, not taking into account the discount you asked for upfront from our already reasonably priced property.
I am glad Rose was there to greet you. She is also there to assist our guests with any concerns and not to intrude upon their holiday. Obviously there were no concerns during your stay as all guests are given her number and my contact details.
This is our first complaint, of such, but we will continue to ensure all our guests have a positive experience.
All the best
