Stayed at the Apol Chinasol for 2 weeks in September - firstly we were given a room at the side overlooking a road, we had asked for a sea view - the receptionist did change our room the following day. Both of the apartments were very dated with 60's décor. The furniture was acceptable but plugs and sockets were coming away from the wall. The bathroom was very dated and the sink and toilet was unstable and the sink tap handle came off after every use, although the maintenance man did bring another handle that one kept falling off as well! The lifts were an experience in itself, felt very insecure when it bumped at every level (we were on level 10) and had no last service date on the wall. The apartment had a safe and we asked the receptionist if we could rent it as there were no instructions we assumed that we had to pay for it.
She said that the owners did not let paying guest use it, also asked for instructions for cooker, as one needed an "ology" to use it, and was told the owners of 1016 (the apartment that we rented) had it! The fridge did not work properly, was more like a cool box than a fridge. The apartment was cleaned daily and staff very helpful.
Breakfast was the normal Spanish mix of meats, egg, toast etc., but did become boring after a while The restaurant, for dinner was quite good as was the entertainment in the evening.
The pool area was very good with a large area for sunbathing and a bar for drinks and snacks.
Overall, it was a fairly inexpensive aparthotel and sea views were very pleasant, but the building is in need of repair internally and externally and updating.
We loved Almunecar but would not go back to the Apol Chinasol again.
