We read the reviews on this hotel and although they were mixed, we thought people were judging the hotel a little harshly so thought we'd give it a go.The hotel is in a quiet residential area in Costa Del Silencio which has a few shops, restaurants and bars, but the main town Las Galletas is only 5mins drive away. The airport is about 20-30mins away and the apartments are easy to find. We stayed in a one bedroom self-catering apartment for 8 days. The staff at the hotel were friendly at check-in and helped as much/little as you needed. All the communial areas were well maintained and clean, as were the rooms which were cleaned everyday except Sunday. There was a small swimming pool (which if you had more than 10 people in would be overcrowded, a small gym, a bar, a restaurant & late night bar, a small gift shop, a dive shop and a small supermarket in the complex. The apartment was large - a lot bigger than we were expecting, however, it was very poorly equipped for a self-catering apartment. There was only one semi-sharp knife, there was no chopping board, no serving spoons, and no serving dishes which made it a little hard to self cater to any normal degree. The decor of our room was basic and a little tired but there was plenty of storage space and you could quite easily have 4 adults living in the same room. Satellite TV was limited in English, BBC World, and CBS Drama. The food in the hotel restaurant was ok but the most basic food we had all holiday. They normally have an offer to eat at the hotel, but we'd recommend eating out. The surrounding restaurants particularly in Tenbel and Las Galletas were superb quality and great value, slightly cheaper than the UK.
In regards to the cost of the apartment, we got a bargain so weren't too disappointed but we would have been very disappointed if we'd stayed in high season paying over £600 for the same room! Will definitely stay in Costa Del Silencio, just not at this hotel again.
