“Great fun holiday, ignore negative feedback!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We booked a weeks holiday for £99 through kgb deals. After reading some of the feedback I was quite concerned it would be awful however we were pleasantly surprised. I believe the resort has been taken over rcently so there are lots of improvements. We were with our 18 month old daughter and were given a room which was close to reception and had ramps so there was no problem with the buggy. The childens pool is a good size, there is a childs play area and a kids club which was great as the lady would allow us to take toys and bring them back the next day so my daughter didn't get bored of the ones we brought with us. We hired a car (about £10 per day) and it was worth it as we could drive to the beaches and also to the large supermarket (the small local ones are very expensive). The appartment itself was very nice, we had airconditioning, tea towels, washing up liquid and there is somewhere to hang clothes out on the balcony. We did have a slight problem with ants on the first day but that was mainly because we left some food out over night on the kitchen surface so I would advise to clean up before you go to bed and make sure all food is wrapped up that is in the cupboards. The staff soon sorted it out and came round with an ant spray. They provide beach towels at reception for free (deposit taken) and over all the staff are quite helpful it just isnt done with a smile!
The area around has a few bars within walking distance but we didn't try any of the restaurants locally, we drove into Los Cristianos. The appartments are about 10 mins drive from the airport so don't be surprise when you see very low flying planes every 10 mins go over the pool area! We didn't mind though as our daughter enjoyed watching them each time. There are quite a few comments on the amount of sun beds available. We didn't have any problems as we went out of season and not during school holidays, however I can imagine it can be quite difficult to find a space during peak season. I would recommend going to the beach instead!
As it's a time share they also want you to go to a meeting but when I firmly said no they didnt pressure me which was good.
Overall we had a great holiday!

“A warm and relaxing winter break in a fab appartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2011 for a stay in February 2011
2
people found this review helpful

Having never been on a winter sun break before, it was a great experience, and one we would recommend. The weather was varied with rain now and again, but always warm and sunbathing was possible. With the Golf de sur being so close to the airport, there was some plane noise, but not excessively loud. Infact the complex was very peaceful and relaxing, suitable for all ages, but perhaps not lively enough for clubbers.

Car hire was not required, we used taxis to transfer, which were convenient and reasonably priced, otherwise bus stops were literally footsteps away from our complex running regularly into bigger towns. Golf courses are close by and there are a great variety of restaurants (Chinese, mexican, Indian, Italian, English, etc) all within walking distance. We highly recommend 'The Old Mill' for their award winning fish and chips and the Mexican was something so different and so reasonably priced. The only thing that truly disappointed me was the quality of the beach in the area, which didn't appear to be used, was very small, ill equipped and unkempt.

Fortunately, the Royal Parque Albatros made up for the lack of beach. It was extremely clean and well cared for, the staff were polite and always available to help. The pool size, restaurant and ammenities appeared adequate for the time of year we visited, however we never found the complex supermarket - perhaps this is closed in the winter season, even so there were enough shops close to the complex to fulfil our needs.

The appartment itself was superb and lived up to everything that it stated. It was modern, clean and tidy and well equipped for our self catering needs. It easily accomodated the two of us, and very comfortably too. Sandra, the appartment owner, was approachable and helpful, only being a phone call away if we required, which helped our holiday along.
