Rooms are good enough to sleep in and cleaned on a daily basis. If book with thomsons there is no holiday rep or any helpful info so got to fend for yourself. Two great outdoor pools for both adults n children. Also an indoor one. Downside is that it is taxi rides away from the strip and also old town... More

Yes, the hotel is quite dated and yes, there are better hotels in the area, but I let's be reasonable: for this price, what more can one expect? Of course I would prefer to have stayed at the Grande Real Santa Eulália, just down the road, but my budget was limited so I chose to stay at the Acqua Maris... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Acqua Maris Balaia. Booked a week before we left and only paid £300 per person and that included flights. We were very pleased with the hotel and impressed with the value for money. The room was an excellent size and was clean, although there were some marks on the bath. The staff... More

If it wouldn't be for an unpleasant event the last night of our stay, I might reconsider the overall grade. The affordable price is what it attracts you to book this aparthotel, but you might wanna spend a bit more to be on a safe side. The rooms were quite clean, kitchen is equipped but nothing special (just basics, cutlery... More

Stayed here for a week last month. I dont think the previous reviews are very fair - we went with an open mind as we managed to get a cheap deal but were very happy with our stay. The room we had was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Jorge even gave us a lift into town... More
