“Very basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2008

Apartments are spread over the 2nd and 3rd floors. The bottom floor consists of tatty shops, a tatoo shop, car rental and the whole floor looked closed down and looked very scruffy. From the outside it looks awful. These apartments are housed on a street behind the 4 Star Tropicana Hotel. So it is a bit confusing. There is no sea view from the unfurnished balconies. You just look across the road at other appartments or the entrace of a Hotel. You can however use the pool at the Hotel Tropicana and have your meals there as we did.

There is no reception in the Apartments but when you get into the room it is very large and spacious with lots of storage space and a small kitchen area. The beds are very comfortable. Cleaning and change of linen is twice a week only. There was no hairdryer or no safe. We asked if we could get a safe in Hotel Tropicana but we were refused.

We had D/BB and had all our meals in the 4 Star Tropicana Hotel. Breakfast was the best selection I have ever seen and is selfservice. There was a limited enough choice for Dinner but it was waiter service. The service was excellent. They make you feel very special indeed and the restaurant is beautiful. We had liqueurs on the house every night. A lovely touch.

Bear in mind though that the Apartments are in a different building to the hotel. The website on which we booked gave very misleading information. Once in the apartments they actually are comfortable.

We would stay again. You get used to the building although the outside needs doing up.
