We've just come back from two weeks at Oasis Mango Apts, and for the most part, we truly enjoyed our stay. We had booked a two-bedroom apt which turned out to be located at the back of the complex and to me on arrival, seemed quite isolated and open to the street, despite the fence. The apartment was very roomy with a spacious balcony, though the kitchen was minimally equipped and a little worse for wear, much like the sofa. We greatly enjoyed the pool area and our lunches there - the lady at the bar/restaurant treated our two kids like they were her own, and Tomas and the rest of the staff couldn't have been kinder.
However, our trip was marred by a break-in. It was all caught on cc tv, but I couldn't help feeling that my initial misgivings about the location of the apartments were true. Our two kids were frightened to see the door kicked in on our return from the pool with many of our belongings taken. Hotel management offered us another similar apt in the same block (as if!) but we opted for a smaller apt closer to reception, despite my urge to leave the complex entirely. I did feel that everything could have been handled better, but www.lowcostholidays.ie, our booking agent, was absolutely wonderful, so that helped.
I can't overstate the cleanliness of the apts, and the complex's resident cat was a big hit with the kids, as was the food in the restaurant! Siam Park and Aqualand are close by (free bus), and there was lots to do, despite the big hill, which young kids and older people will find difficult in the heat. We favoured the pool as the beach was a long walk away.
So, would I return to these apartments? I don't think so. I was mildly surprised to find that WiFi wasn't free (1euro per 15 mins on pc), and neither was TV! And they charge you rental for the apt safes too... but safe or no safe, I'm not sure I'd take the risk again.
