Our room had air conditioning which wasnt switched on so we asked at reception and were told our appartment was standard and didnt include air conditioning!! We couldnt sleep with the heat so the girl at reception kindly gave us a fan. Staff were lovely and helpful.

Booked these apartments again for an early season holiday with a group of friends. As ever the apartments were clean, tidy and huge ! Cooking facilities were available and good - although we ate out every evening. Staff were friendly and courteous and sorted minor problems within a day or so (roller shutter wasn't functioning properly) . Towels changed every... More

Stayed here two and a half years ago. The apartments were massive. Everything was clean. The staff were lovely. I came here on my motorbike from England and they even let us have a underground garage for security reasons for the bikes. The shop was good. A very satisfying hotel.

This place is absolutely disgusting, the facilities are awful, its dirty and old... The staff are rude and there are no washing machines. Its really a bad place to stay, I would never go back, even for free ...

We were transferred here from the Mirachora Hotel and were thrilled with our 1 bed apartment. We spent 2 weeks there over Christmas and New Year.There were very few (about 5!) guests so the reception was only open from 8am til 7pm. This is ok until you have a problem e.g. fire alarm going off in seemingly empty apartments. The... More

Even at the end of season it was fantastic. The staff were great, apartment was cleaned and towels changed every day. Pool was great and spotless. Fantastic overall service. It is a few mins walk from the main strip but well worth it.. Free wifi at bar/pool area. We were also upgraded to superior which has very good air con.

An amazing family holiday of 21. From infants as young as 2 and adults 50+ and there was something to suit us all, good location within a ten minute walk to the beach. Fantastic swimming pools within the hotel. Amazing staff that were so friendly. Perfect self catering hotel, I recommend trying the chicken or tuna baguettes. Best 3 euros... More

Walked down to the bar and were greeting by Elvis tunes being belted out by some other guests!!!......Oh my god what have we done However in the warm light of day, this hotel turned out to be absolutely fine.

It's probably our 9th visit to the Vila Rosa and it was the best apartment we have ever had. Lots of room but basic and very clean. Only suggestion I would have is to supply electric kettles and update the TV channels (BBC & ITV) get sick of listening to World News!! Reception and cleaning staff are all very friendly... More
