Like the previous reviewer when I started reading reviews I was horrified and nearly going to cancel. Fortunetly I didn't as the apartment was spotless, it had everything thing we could have possibly needed. Fresh towels, pots, pans, plates, cups, glasses and cutlery. There is a supermarket across the road with lovely fresh bread and anything you need if you... More

I could write a book on the negative points to this 'aparthotel' but will instead just bullet point- •no check in (have to get a taxi across town to check in at a seperate office.) this also means there is no staff available to deal with any room queries or issues. •it is actually 70% residential so the rules and...

First of all,its not a hotel as such.Alboran is the name of the building in which your apartment is located.The apartments appear to be privately owned and rented out by different agents to holidaymakers such as us. There is no hotel desk,or concierge,or porters, or anybody else you could speak to regarding your rooms. The keys are picked up from... More

Thankfully the very kind people who ran the eatery next door told... More
