We stopped at the Brisamar for a week from 30th Aug 13 1st impressions were great the staff on reception were very informative and the complex had nice well kept gardens and all the blocks of apartments weren't on top of each other. We had a 1 bedroom apartment which had large rooms and a decent size kitchen and bathroom. It was all very clean but basic in its decor which was fine with us as has been said before you get what you pay for. Over all we were happy to start with we had a kettle and toaster (free) but we did have the lumpy pillows but you get used to them. The problem started on a night our apartment was on the ground floor and sure enough a family moved in upstairs and the banging and scrapeing started not only that we were near the complex enterence not far from the road and traffic noise and dogs barking was an issue early morning. After a couple of broken nights sleep we asked reception if they had a upper floor apartment available else where.We arn't the sort to complain but it was spoiling our holiday so we went to The lady on reception who asked for 1/2 hour to see what they could do and sure enough they sorted us out a top floor room further in the complex which was spot on and a full nights sleep was had for te rest of the week.
We were self catering so can't comment on the bar or food but the pool area was nice and big with nice large pool. Sunbeds were never a problem to get although there was a lack of cusions to lay on the beds to have a nice sleep on. I recommend a massage with the big guy I had a torn hamstring and he gave it a good seeing to and he knew his stuff for only 10 euro a session. Its a nice 10 min walk into the town and a further 15 min to the beach but its not too bad and was ever a problem. If you enjoy walking I can recommend a walk to the far end of the beach where there are some lovely coves and the boardwalk at te other end goes to the harbour enterence for some great views.
All in all its an ok Hotel you get what you pay for, if you want luxury don't come here but a value family holiday or couples on a budget its great if you can secure a top floor room away from the road. or if you are deaf. The staff are fantastic so if you have a problem ask and they will do there best to help.
