“You get what you pay for, great holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Myself and my friends stayed in this hotel/apartments the last 7 days September the first 3 of October, we were not expecting luxury at all because we each paid £200 for 10 days flights/hotel and transfers so we can't really complain. When we got there we paid a deposit for keys I think it was, and we were shown out rooms the rooms where really big and had enough sleeping space for 5/6 people in each room and had a balcony, kitchen/ cooking facilities which where all clean! The hotel is not 5* because that is really not what it is but it is a good hotel for a cheap get away! There is no pool but you are able to use the pool in the hotel Teix around the corner which was good, the hotel is across from poco loco I think it is and it is above a shop (where you can buy anything which is so handy) it's a stone throw away from the top of the strip which was perfect for us! We had such good fun on this holiday and we got what we paid for! On the last day we managed to lock ourselves out of our room with 2 hour to pack our cases and get to the airport the woman that owns the hotel her knowledge of English was pretty terrible we seen her once the whole 10 days we were there! Haha but yeah we locked ourselves out and she had to get someone to come cut a key to get in etc we ended up with 30 mins to get sorted for airport, by the end of it one of our short and skinny friends was able to reach in for the mop and lift it and hit the handle and open the door so all that for nothing, she continued to keep 30 euro of the 100 euro deposit due to paying the man to come out and cut keys! Typical! All and all good fun cheap and cheerful! Would go back if was on a budget!

Awesome.stopped here as part of a stag party place was clean and had Aircon with double glazed veranda over looking all the action,kept the place cool too if you keep doors shut a major releif after you bin on a session;)sometimes the owner need a shout or a search if you got any problems which can be a ball ache during checking in but may be a 1 off in my case.close too the strip and a stone throw from the beach maybe 200 hundred meters? can go from madness on the strip to a laid back family resort in in 5 minutes walk either way highly recommeneded for stag lads ladys hen or a hardcore couple and its cheap as chips.

Fantastic location, very big and spacious rooms... Relatively clean and safe , over all great value for money. Would return for budget holiday... Lady owner was very helpful.... Ear plugs recommended for sleeping as new club opened up next door.

So, having read the good reviews and awful reviews i'm leaving a review that agrees with the good reviews!

Loacation - This hote is at the end of the night spot strip and at the start of the foos strip. Its a 2 minute walk from the beach and a 30 second walk to start your night off!

Room Size - For the money we paod i expected bed / living room / kitchen all in 1 space but not here, there is a kitchen seperated by along hall wal with a bedroom off the hall which sleeps 2 and has a spacious bathroom, The hall then leads into a sitting area with a further 2 beds and then onto the balacony.

Value - Excellent!

Tips - when it comes to the owners / managers most of the reviews are accurate where they want a £20 deposit per person which was returned at the end, but who wouldnt, it would just be nice if it were mentioned before!

Their english is poor but very infrequent contact needed

No reception - some people see this as a bonus ;)

All in all i would 100% return here great location perfect size and great value!

there was a group of 5 girls, we arrived at around 6pm and found reception to be a cupboard and the most unfriendly woman or man I have ever met in my life!!! on the 2nd night my apartment was robbed no sign of break in, door locked up again after took all my euros, nice guy from bar next door explained there was a gennel down the back of the hotels lucky lucky men wait there and when you go out get a key off the woman and rob your room. i asked the woman to ring the police for me she point blanked refused how rude can you get.Horrific. we all packed our stuff and were all in one room as we were moving to a different hotel and the bloody person who robbed me had the nerve to open the door nick my phone and leave my simcard the cheek!! a friend left her straighteners in the room as she had the key to the room still and the woman was throwing her straighteners in the bin. what the cheek of her. all in all the worst experience of my life the rubbish in my bin gets treated better than people here.
