Fabio's place is conveniently located by the beach (~3 blocks away) and streets lined with restaurants and shops. We had a group of 9, and stayed in this apartment comfortably. Fabio was not there, however the doormen (Jose and several others) were all kind and present for most of the day time. Overall, the apartment is old and needs attention. For example, a sofa-bed was broken, and several of the mattresses were old/lumpy. The closets had an odor (typical of an old building), which unfortunately then made the linens/towels smell. The apartment did not appear ready for us upon check-in as there were still linens/towels hanging to dry in the kitchen, and food left in the refrigerator. In some ways, these issues could be overlooked as this apartment is truly in a convenient location and a good value.
