Stayed in one of the apartments and it was everything we could have wished for - clean, comfy, beautiful decorations and so much space and all at a very good price - have stayed in a more up market hotel on previous visits but would only ever stay here in future. House keeping was the best I've come across on my travels. Breakfast had everything we wanted - we learnt to keep an eye on out fruit after a monkey stole our banana! Special mention to Ursula who served our breakfast - she was so lovely to us and made every meal enjoyable. Front desk staff were very helpful especially Edgar. Pool was lovely, we had friends come and visit us and just had to pay a little amount for them to use the facilities. Safety at the hotel was good - Gate staff were vigilant and very friendly. Location is great, just a short, interesting walk to the beach which was lovely - a lot of locals selling stuff on the beach and they may seem pushy but we got to know them well (bartering was great fun!) and they are only trying to make a living in bad economic times so give them a chance. We spent most evenings at the sports bar which had so many different screens - even in the rest rooms! Food was good but extremely slow so only ate there a couple of times.
Only a couple of negatives about the hotel which were that you couldn't charge anything to your room and pay on checkout (ATM at Barclays Bank a short walk away was useful because of this) and we were only given 1 room key and there were three of us staying and you had to have the key card to use the air con - never stayed anywhere before where not given 2 keys.
All in all a fantastic hotel, especially for the price and we will be back next year.
