We are just back from a six night stay. Great for the money we paid. The apartment we got overlooked the pool and has lovely view, very spacious and great balcony and well equipped kitchen. The other family staying with us has slightly smaller apartment which looked onto street with small balcony but still not bad. Only complaint with the apartment itself had terribly uncomfortable beds, springs dug into us and although advertised as having a pool bar it is no longer in operation. It is however a great location, 15 minute walk to old town and beach and 15-20 minute walk in other direction gets you to the strip with its bars and shops. Fantastic supermarket that opens until 11pm just across road form apartment with a taxi stop at front of supermarket where had to wait no longer than 5-10 mins for taxi. Pool was nice and never over crowded as not many apartments. However light sleepers beware! Probably due to the great prices these apartments seem to be very popular with young people going away to party particularly groups of Dutch youths. The noise of people in apartments above just walking about (girls in heels especially bad) music and laughing all noises seemed to echo and carry into all the other apartments. People partying until 1-2pm before going to clubs and then home again singing and banging at 5 or 6 in morning and no reception from 6pm until 10 am so no staff to complain to. However if you want a party holiday yourself or sleep like the dead and want cheap holiday I highly recommend it here.
