This apartment complex is basic but for the price you pay for it, all we wanted was somewhere to sleep and lounge by the pool.
We are a young couple (in our mid 20s) and booked a two week stay. We decided against the all-inclusive option partly because we were put off by the reviews of the food and partly because we wanted to spend the money we'd saved on accommodation on going out and trying the local restaurants as we'd heard the Paella, tapas and sea food was fab in the town - which it was!
It was a short walk to the main strip, with a chemist, tourist shop and mini supermarket just around the corner which was very handy.
We were able to walk most places from here really - to Baku waterpark, the main town strip and flag beach.
The apartments themselves are very basic. We booked a double room and got a twin with the beds pushed together! There's a small 'kitchen' area that has a fridge, sink, cupboards and a hob. There is no oven. It was fine for making coffee in the mornings and a cold breakfast. we ate out the rest of the time.
The cleaner came round most days - although if you're in when they arrive they don't like being asked to come back in 5 minutes once you've got your stuff together to go the the pool!
The pool is a strange one...it's salty sea water rather than chlorinated. Kept clean though and lovely for a dip ion the soaring temps we experienced in Corralejo (they were having a heatwave the fortnight we were there!)
We went completely off season (around the beginning of May) and the complex was incredibly quiet. There was no entertainment that we could see going on, but we weren't there for that any way and I'm sure it picks up in peak season.
The grounds of the apartments are lovely. loads of trees, flowers and plants. They're all well maintained.
There was no air conditioning in the room which was a draw back, especially because of it being so hot when we were there. Leaving the windows open wasn't an option either really as there were so many mosquitos around from the pool. And we were also made away of a family who were targeted by burglars - but that can happen anywhere.
All in all the apartments did the job we wanted them for - somewhere to sleep mainly. Don't go with high expectations or you will be disappointed.
