We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and size of the apartment we had, given that we booked a studio but were given a 1 bedroom appt in the main block overlooking the pool. The appt was clean and had all the basic facilities you'd expect for self catering, i.e. hob, fridge, kettle, toaster etc., although there was no grill or oven, and was cleaned daily (except for Sunday - not sure whether this was in error or not).
It could be that we went just prior to the season getting into full swing as the town in general was a little quiet, so this may be a reason, but we felt the hotel was lacking a little life. There was a pool bar, but it was never opened during our stay (nor tbh was the main bar as far as I could tell) meaning that if we wanted any daytime drinks (soft or alcoholic) we had to pre-purchase them from the local supermarket (which I would add was very well stocked). I suppose if you want peace and quiet whilst relaxing by the pool then this would be ideal, but I like a little more atmosphere. This may also be why we often found ourselves to be the only ones around the pool as other guests went elsewhere to find their entertainment. Having said that, we were described as "the young couple" which was very complimentary given that I am fast approaching 50.
The pool varied in temperature during the week, but was warmer towards the end of our stay. It was reasonably clean and we did see it being cleaned one evening.
Minor gripe - our transfer back to the airport wasn't until the evening, but we needed to check out by midday. Although the hotel stored our bags for us, there was nowhere available for us to "freshen up" before the trip home. It would have been nice if such had been offered and we were not the only guests in a similar situation.
Overall, if you're looking for an appt in Polis, I'd recommend, but be aware (certainly at this time of year) that you'll need to make your own entertainment.
