It differs from other apartments on the resort as it is a deluxe apartment with additional facilities and personal touches. For example while the other apartments are furnished identically we have decorated our apartment with unique and interesting artwork sourced by the owners from local artists.  This helps to create a relaxing ambience and a feel for the local culture.  We have also purchased a second leather sofa for the living room to ensure that there is ample seating for a group of up to 6 people.  Normally there is just one sofa provided but we felt this was insufficient for our guests.   The additional sofa converts to a comfortable double bed if required.  The Blue Lagoon is also unique in that we have balcony seating for 6 people rather than the standard 4 seats.  Additional touches include vanity mirrors with shelving in the bedrooms.   The owners have also carefully prepared a welcome folder which details important local information such as emergency numbers, local restaurants and ideas for days out and excursions.  > read more about our Tortuga apartment
