Staff were very professional, Apartments very well furnished eg,full kitchen appliances. Free A/C which also functions as heater.On-site supermarket plus 2 more nearby. (We didn't discover the best one until the last day - so be sure to turn right along main road for the other supermarket!) Overall we were happy with our stay, but it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.
The 1st apartment we were given was right by the main road and too noisy with traffic at night. Also the "balcony/patio" was outside the front door next to the hotel access road which we didn't feel was private enough to make inclined to use it. The 2nd apartment we were given was quieter with nice patio overlooking the pool, but it only got the sun for about 20 minutes in the morning, also there was alot of shade around the pool making the swimming pool ice cold! This may not be the same I presume in the middle of summer, but in October it was a bit disappointing.
the bar and food at the pool the staff were so freindly and helpfuff
we had to change our apartment 3 times
large room, well equiped
no indoor pool. water not heated in outdoor pool
the space of the apartment / room
It was very humid. the fact of everyone could get to the hotel room from the street. it was very noisy since our room face the road.the bathroom had a problem with the pipes between the bathtub and the toilet, that very unpleasant.
The staff were freindly and very close to the beach. The apartments were clean and spacious
We booked and paid extra for a seaview apartment compared to an apartment over-looking the pool. But we were told after complaining that our apartment was right next to the pool that there were no sea view apartments! So we were very disappointed.
the location was central for my needs
the rooms were clean very well equiped how ever a tad dated
pool area was excellent and close to beach
location was a bit away from nighlife,probably a 20 minute walk
It was my third visit to this hotel: very nice apartments, quiet surronding, terrific pool and wonderful "Maria Luisa" beach beach just a few steps away.
missing the clothes washing machine wich would be very usefull specially for families with small kids
the newly refurbished apartment we stayed in
the apartment was not cleaned everyday, the sheets and the towels were not changed every day
Big deep pool, close to the beach
Very hard to book a taxi between 7 and 9 and its a good 20min walk to the main strip (this does not take from the hotel though this is a problem throughout the area)
