Stayed in the Vasari Resort for the last few days of October and returned yesterday. We stayed in a ground floor two bedroom apartment - Apartment No. 1, in the Venecia block. .
Lovely apartment, very clean, modern, spacious. Plenty of storage space, kitchen good and it even had a utility room. Only thing missing which might have been useful was a microwave (not that I had any intention of cooking or reheating food though!), but some people might want to.
Very large balcony to this particular apartment with carried on right across the width of the lounge and both bedrooms, and then an extra large add-on bit on the end. Plenty of comfortable seating supplied on the balcony for your exclusive use which was great.
We didn't hire a car because we don't like driving abroad but it would be an advantage to have your own vehicle as there was no restaurants or food available on the complex at this time of year, which meant that we had to be 'out' all the time as to get taxis back and forth just for something to eat is a pain. If we had known there wasn't an on site restaurant at this time of year then we might not have booked it.
There were a few kids in the jacuzzi right outside our room in the late afternoon (we were out during the day), and I would imagine that during the high season it could have been a bit noisy.
We had booked B & B and the continental style breakfast was delivered to our apartment in the morning.
Taxis into the main town were reasonable - about 7-8 Euros each way. Receptionists were lovely and very helpful. It was also cheaper to book our return taxi which took us directly to the airport via the receptionist than it was to book a shared coach which gave us an unwanted tour of Spain collecting from loads of other hotels via the tour operator.
My tip for travelling to and from the airport is 'ask the Vasari Receptionist to do it for you'. It is a cheaper, more convenient, faster and you don't have loads of other tourist drop offs to other hotels.
I don't know if children's activities were laid on during the high season, but apart from the pool and a play area there wasn't anything else for kids available at the resort at this time of year.
I would definitely return to the Vasari Resort again - in fact I don't think I would go anywhere else. This would be my first choice. The ONLY drawback is no restaurant or food available during the day or evening at the Vasari resort which we were not told about when we booked.
