Cheap, cheerful, clean, large. Cleaning staff very helpful, towels and bedding changed twice during the week. Overall excellent value for money. Location was perfect, quiet but within walking distant of beach, restaurants etc.

After the check in entered the room to make cleaning the bathroom, that was... More

Ryanair flights and sharing with friends made this a cheap holiday but we were disappointed at the view , ...car park, as we had asked for a high room. It was very quiet, few people there and in the whole resort , so they obviously only wanted to open 1 floor. That said, the staff were friendly and helpful, the... More

Well pleased with apartment and facilities. Food good, well presented by efficient, friendly staff but the limit choice would be a problem for families with younger children as no alternatives on offer.Self catering wouldn't be a problem as apartment well equipped,oven etc., and supermarkets within 10/15 walk, 4 euros return journey. Cleaners in most days, general cleanliness around hotel very... More

Just returned (unfortunately) from a 9 night stay here and found the apartments good value for the money, the apartment was large, clean and more than adequate for our requirements. We stopped in block c room 211 which didn't have a great view (over waste ground) and our friends apartment 209 was adjacent to a football pitch which was used... More

This was my second time at the Plaza Real Apartments (9 October 14 - 17 October 14). I last visited five years ago. The apartment was very clean and the chambermaid was in every day to change towels, mop floors, tidy up etc. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, any request made was always dealt with promptly and...

Stayed for 10 nights sept/oct in a 2 bed apartment (free upgrade from a 1 bed as room wasn't ready on our arrival) Apartment was massive and really far too big for just the 2 of us but would be well suited for a family of 4-6 with a double bedroom, a twin room and a pull out / camp... More

The apartments were both spacious and clean, couldn't ask for more. Unfortunately you could here movement from every apartment around you, and this proved a little disappointing as I generally get up for work at 6 each morning, so to go away and be woken at 6 by the people above you at 6 moving bed back in place etc...
