We spent 2 weeks in a 1 bedrm apartment this July. We arrived when it was dark and drove around for an hour trying to find it, no signs till you are on the property, not a good start. Initially our booking couldn't be found, told there wasn't one, but later found out that there were 3 couples with the same name arriving on the same day, but I'm sure they didn't all have the same first names or came from Scotland, so our apartment had been given to someone else. Anyway, the apartment was very spacious, but dated - all very beige and brown. It had a well equiped kitchen although no instructions on how anything worked, but we did work it out. Very comfortable bed!
Sadly in the day light we found that there was little natural light as the terrace faced on to the side of a building which blocked out nearly everything, so not happy with the lack of any view. Was told that all the 1 bed apartments face inwards so we were going to be disappointed anyway. Lots of calls the next day welcoming us (staff were very friendly) and invited to the consierge desk to collect our welcome pack. We usually stay in apartments in Europe and a welcome pack consists of a large bottle of water, bread, milk, butter, jam, eggs, tea & coffee and a bottle of wine already in the apartment. Here it seemed to be a small basket next to the coffee machine with a few small packet of tea, coffee, dried milk and at the desk we were given to very small botles of water - very underwhelming! Being on the ground floor was also not ideal when there was a noisy child above running up and down and jumping off furniture, a little more soundproofing would have been welcome.
We didn't use the pool but it always seemed very busy and surprised the cafe\bar closed at 7pm so you couldn't get anything to eat on site. So, not totally blown away with the place, it was a bit 'grubby', the bird droppings on our terrace wall only disappeared after a rain storm but the other stains were still there. Not quite up to the standard Diamond Resorts blurb would lead you to expect. Given a choice I don't think we'd stay here again.
