The As Cascatas apartments form the northern half of the Hilton resort. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment for 4 nights in August. The great plus for a family is that you can rent a beautiful apartment with all the space you could need (including outside seating) for less than the price of the equivalent 3 hotel rooms. You get all the amanities of the Hilton hotel but no cramped hotel room conditions.
Our apartment was beautiful. White leather sofas, TV in every room, radio in every room, DVD players, air conditioned etc etc. A great place to come back to.
You get breakfast as well at the Hilton. This wasn't so great. Long lines, running out of food and slow to clear tables. I'd have rather had a price reduction and made my own breakfast. You also get access to all the pools etc. These were a bit crowded for our liking. Good for kids - not for adults. Try the spa instead. You get free access to all the public areas and you can chill out in peace.
Another must do is the beach club. You can get the complimentary shuttle but we just drove the 5 min to the beach. It isn't like private beaches in France but you get loungers, shade and there's a good bar/cafe attached. The beach is great for swimming.
There are some slight minus points for this resort. Really, you need a car to get anywhere as it a a fair way back from the sea. Also, if you have an older guest as we did, walking around the Hilton resort is a bit daunting. There seemed to be no route that wasn't awkward or involved stairs. By the way - you can't clock up HHonours points here either.
All in all though - a great resort and super apartment. If you're a golfer - superb location.
Service was v.good also - they even posted on to me the shirts I'd left in the wardrobe when we checked out. Can't say fairer than that.
