Had an amazing time at Swanky. Staff were so helpful and loved every minute there! Location was so good. Right in the centre and walking distance to everything. The only thing we didn't find upto scratch was the laundry service but other than that would definately visit again!
Excellent experience, met by business owner who was very friendly, helpful and informative, walked to apartment by apartment owner and shown round really lovely apartment, double bed, showering, kitchen, plasma tv and stereo system. Aircon so very comfortable stay. 10-15 min walk to beach and city centre.

Dario, the operator was the most helpful, genuine host you could hope for!! Without asking he was waiting at the bus station for us, help us with our bags and took us to our apartment! We then managed to get lost in the same afternoon, and luckily he had given us his mobile number. We contact him, and without hesitation, he came and found us!! We then needed to move hostel and he again took us to the new spot and arranged the place without any effort. We thank Dario greatly for his efforts!! A++
We arrived late at the hostel and they left us a message on the door with directions to a little hidden box with a mobile phone that had the number we had to call to check in. From here we were led a few hundred metres up the road to the room, which included a full size kitchen and a bathroom. We were given drinks there too. The location is awesome, and the place was nice and clean. The only thing is that there was no one to contact when we had a question the next day. Would stay here again
I thought I was booking a shared apartment but they had overbooked, so I ended up getting my own apartment which was great.
We had an appartment in a small little street located perfectly between the old city and the beach. The only major problem was the lack of airconditioning, the nights were unbearably hot. But the owner (who we only saw once, at our check-in) was very friendly.
Thought we were staying one place but were taken else where further away.
The location was good and the host was very helpful and friendly but the room was small and did not have A/C.
My boyfriend and I were both very impressed with the beach and city centre hostel. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and we got to stay in a private apartment which consisted of a private ensuite, kitchen, double bed and a plasma screen tv. Furthermore the location was fantastic with only a 10 minute walk to the beach, and a 2 minute walk to the bus station.
