Some friends and I stayed here for a week for the festival. We had the option of several different tiered apartments and we went for the cheaper ‘3rd line’ apartments and I have to say it made no difference to us to have to walk that TINY bit more to get to the beach. We were still REALLY close AND located closer to the supermarket which is what you need when you're staying in a self-catering place.
We booked our apartment via a private owner. The apartments are an OK size but I wouldn’t say it would be comfortable for more than 5 people which is what we had (the apartment sleeps 6). We were informed that the apartment had air-con but in actual fact only one room had air-con and the air did not distribute into the other rooms so it did get very stuffy and warm, whilst the person in the room with the air-con was left freezing cold.
We had lots of issues with the plumbing and the equipment in the kitchen, so did our others friends in their apartment two floors down. Both apartments had problems with the showers and it took four days until this was taken care of and even then only one apartment was fixed. We were also told that there would be "free wifi" but this turned to be untrue. HOWEVER it was an inexpensive rate of 6 Euro for 7 days. The only issue was that you could only use it on one device at a time, meaning we couldn’t all use it to access our mobile wifi.
The apartment complex itself is nice and generally well located. The pool is small but clean and had plenty of space to sun bathe around the side. We went for the festival and felt that we were well placed to get there from our apartments although A LOT could be said for the coach service to the festival, the owner of the apartment recommended DANESP but I would never EVER EVER choose to use them ever again. They are rude and unhelpful and incredibly unreliable. I wish the owner of the apartment had not recommended them so highly, as I felt that we were really mislead into using someone that makes a business out of ripping off tourist..... In general I'd recommend the apartments in Marina D'or, ours wasn't fantastic but fair going for the price and the issues we did have didn't ruin our time too much as we were only there to sleep in between the festival.
I would say though that for a self-catering place, it would have been appreciated if the owner could at least leave some cleaning products and bin bags in the apartment just so that we could keep on top of stopping the place turning into a pigsty! - some toilet roll would have also been great, not the best to get there after travelling for hours to find nothing in the bathroom!
