Getting around

Transportation from the International Airport to the apartment is very easy. Leaving customs you will see in your right side some counters selling Taxi vouchers. They speak English and you may pay with credit card (approx. US$35). Regular taxi cue is a little ahead, but normally they speak a little or no English and you need to pay in local currency (aprox. US$25). Make sure that the driver turns on the taximeter. Depending on the traffic, it may take about one hour. For everyday use, Uber is the best solution. However I will be easly accessible for any information or hint that you may need.

Interaction with guest

Owner lives one floor below the penthouse and is available to help guests on their needs, suggesting visits and helping with information.

“Very Nice, But Overpriced”

Response from the owner Hi Dug Garret, I appreciate your comments on this penthouse. FlipKey’s ad is absolutely clear and precise, including the location map, and all other previous guest attested. I feel that it is necessary to make some remarks on your comments: most hotels that you listed are more expensive than this penthouse, for a small, dark, often noisy double room compared to this penthouse with about 10 times more private area than any of these hotel rooms and proper for four guests. Anyway, you had access to all these prices before deciding for this penthouse, therefore I see no reason for your surprise. Guests choose this penthouse for its spaciousness, internal and external privacy, the private shallow pool, its wide views, its silence, possibility of cooking, etc. Credibility is absolutely important to me and that any potential guest has complete confidence in what is advertised in FlipKey. All that you have read and seen in detail in TripAdvisor is exactly true. Please make sure to check prices before you choose any place. However, I'm very glad that you have enjoyed your stay in this penthouse.
