We were a group of 4 who booked the holiday 5 weeks before departure and were looking for a cheap holiday in a fun and lively resort. Having read the other reviews prior to departure we were not expecting much but were pleasantly surprised, the pool was clean and spacious with plenty of sunbeds (Most people don't surface till gone 3 so no trouble there!) the rooms are basic but you just have to accept you get what you pay for!! Whilst it is classed as self-catering there are no cooking facilities, kettle or toaster. You also have to provide your own toilet roll which since returning home I understand is normal in self-catering accommodation.
On arrival at 5am we were met by the night porter who checked us in and showed us to our rooms, he took our passports for only 10 mins and then returned them to us, we were offered Air conditioning for €35 per week, we didn't opt for it but in hindsight it would probably have been worth it! The safe was only €10 for the week and definitely worth it as we had a habit of leaving our door open! The hotel manager is really nice and got to know us and most other guests by name in our week. The bar prices are a little bit more expensive then outside in other bars but you don’t expect them to be giving them away, the food was good and cooked to order and was reasonably priced.
The hotel is smack bang in the middle of everything and the beach, restaurants and bar street are only a few minutes’ walk away. We went to a restaurant called Alexanders nearly every night which we would recommend.
We were on a Twentys holiday and we would recommend this hotel to any young group of people who want a drunken week in the sun!!!!
