This was a blessing for us this week (I will explain) but can be intimidating if... More

On arrival on Sunday 28 October we were told we had no reservation but were put in an apartment. The next day we were told we had been expected the previous week - although I was shown a... More

I've just got back from a week at Atlantic Sands. I went with my 3 children and mum and we all enjoyed ourselves but mainly spent our time away from the accommodation. There are a few points to mention. We arrived at night time. We had hired a car in advance from Plus Car who were a bargain at only... More

Apartments very nice and facalities pool etc good, location very poor, be prepared to spend on local taxi or car rental as the local bus stop is 20 minute walk on an unlit road. Also be ready for the sales reps to sell you a holiday package. Ask yourself if its such a good package why is this not sold... More
