Me and my husband returned after a week here on 13 aug. Last min hol via hotels4u paid £800 for AI accommodation seemed reasonable for kids hols. Transfer took around 1hr. Arrived at 0500hrs no probs with check in. Had a studio which was on top floor, opened the main door to room and were met by another flight of stairs, not a problem for us but could be for someone with buggy or mobility problems. Room had everything you need for SC and air con worked fine 15 euro pw for deposit box and 6 euro deposit for tv remote.
Located 5-15 mins walk to various beaches cala gran the closest and then cala d or and cala esmeralda about 10-15 min walk. All bars restaurants clubs shops etc within a few mins walk karaoke bar across the road. There seems to be a law that does not allow outside entertainment after midnight so no noise was heard from here after this time.
AI - the restaurant was very small so usually there is 3 main dishes and then the usual sides chips salad etc. Breakfast - cereal fruit full English bread cheese meats juice. Lunch - usually 2 main dishes then burgers toasties etc. Dinner - I considered to be quite poor. Usually on an AI I tire of chicken everyday but this AI was pork especially spare ribs, eveyday was a pork dish which wasn't for me. The snack menU by the pool was great, it was the usual tasties burgers baguettes got and cold and pizza but it was always freshly made and the chef would even wrap then for you so we used to take lunch to the beach. As AI package you were also allowed anything off the main menu at a 50% discount which was great.
Coming during the kids hols at peak time I expected to be waiting ages for drinks - I don't think we ever waited longer than 30 SECONDS for a drink the staff were all friendly and helpful, drinks away from the pool were served in glasses pint pots If you wished. drinks by the pool were served in good sized paper cups.
There was nO entertainment And the kids club was extremely poor although we went alone as a couple we do have 3 kids all aged under 5 and they would not have been using the entertainment here but locally at other hotels and bars there seemed to be things going off for kids, obviously all at an extra cost.
Overall the apartments were fine for a 3 star rating and the AI package was only let down by the evening meal choices. I would recommend the appts but I personally would not return but this is only because I will not be returning to Spain again. It has become very expensive, the poor exchange rate not helping. All future hols will be enjoyed in Egypt or turkey as they seriously cater for kids and although we did not go on thus holiday with them it was a one off and is NEVER likely to happen again!!! Were ever your going don't forget to print your 2 for 1 drinks vouchers out for Manchester airport. Enjoy x
