“Good Location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Having booked these apartments on the internet we didn't know what to expect.
First the bad points.
The studio apartment we stayed in didn't have a balcony only one narrow window.
To access these studio apartments you had to get the lift to the second floor walk to another door then down a flight of stairs not lit unless you knew where the light switch was.
The lift like the room was a bit dated and didn't fill you with confidence when you used it.
Good points.
Value for money.
Room cleaned 5 times a week with towels changed every other day.
Friendly staff from cleaners to reception staff.
Hotel restaurant good and hotel in good location for bars and restaurants.

Booked as part of a package holiday, it was cheap so wasnt sure what to expect. However it was perfect for our needs! Clean, great location, pool, not noisy - ideal!
Reception staff were nice.
The location was fab, near lots of restaurants and the beach!
Would return and recommend! It was a great wee find.

Being quite cheap, we didn't know what to expect when visiting barranco bungalows, however it was much better than we expected! Clean rooms, towels and maids came 4/5 times a week! Apartments are big enough! The hotels restaurant was good - really cheap and nice food! The pools a little small which was the only downside really! Would definitely visit again!:) loro parque and Siam are fantastic days out also! Perfect budget holiday :)

To give a fair review i thought i would point out the good bits & the bad bits about the hotel as i want to be fair..

Bad points:
We asked for a double bed and a view of the pool - We got neither.
We received 2 single beds which we put together - When they cleaned our room they seperated them.
Our room was only cleaned twice during our 4 night stay.
At reception they took our passports and stated they would give it the next following day (at first i thought this was very disturbing - but they did give it back after they had made copies).
The room was very cold to the point that I had to wrap up whenever i was in my room
You can only use the pool at certain hours of the day - & it was fairly deep (but thats not a main concern).

Good points:
Everything is very close by. 10 minutes away from the beach.
Row of Restaraunts in walking distance.
Their restaraunt is really nice.
The cleaner we had on one of the days was very organised and neatly piled my clothes.

Good value for the price, very poor round the pool area and it was noisy in the early hours. Reception staff ok without going out of their way to be helpful. Easy to get to beaches at Christianos and Americas. Some good restaurants close by.

Ok. Small cold swimming pool next to a very busy road. Although its very cheap around £25 per night it's not suitable for anyone wanting a relaxing holiday. Maybe ok for party people as Veronica's is only a 5 minute walk as is the beach. If you do decide to stay here make sure you get a pool view room as they are much quiter at night.

This was a cheap last minute holiday and the hotel was only rated 2*. This was better than we expected good location cleaner came in everyday for a quick tidy and at the weekend for a good clean. They did not allow loads of noise. The pool is small but otherwise we got a cheap cheerful holiday
