-very spacious, clean apartment (if a little basic - but hey its fairly cheap) with 2 nice balconies and nice views.
-Complex for the most part set in a pretty, peaceful area on a hill.
-The old town is seriously lovely with plenty to see and do and some decent eateries.
Not so good points:
-Grumpy staff and customer service in general needs looking at... for example being told we had to wait till 3pm before we could get in our room having arrived at 11 - we could accept this (just) - but to discover rooms were actually ready at around 12 when we'd already waited around for hours on end was not acceptable (why didn't they just tell us when we were sitting in reception BORED out of our brains!?)
-The stray dogs and cats are all very sweet and nice natured and it's clear the hotel look out for them, but if you're going to feed them and allow them to roam the complex please be decent and have them de-flead! For the sake of the animals and the guests especially children.
-The old town is where people go who want a peaceful tranquil restful holiday stay. So it was dissapointing to have to put up with big groups of men on stag dos getting drunk and loud by the pool everyday, holidaying teens staying up playing loud music ALL night every night and so on without any concern from staff about their other guests. (I'd like to point out I am 22 and my boyfriend is 29 so we're young ourselves and this was STILL extremely annoying.)
I would however just like to add that there were no break ins while we were there (other reviews mentioned this!?) the place seemed very safe (cctv) the pools are lovely and clean as are the surrounding areas and the housekeeping was efficient and every other day as expected. Don't come here if you don't enjoy walking - the walk back from town is all uphill but we did it everyday! it's fine. we were shocked at the amount of people who all got taxis back everytime! no wonder britain has an obesity problem!? Also Zoomarine is an awesome day out!! Overall a great week in the sun.
