Reviewed November 3, 2006

These apartments were basic but comfortable, exactly as described. Our studio apartment was large, the sleeping area was actually seperated from the sitting area by a sliding partition which basically made it as large as a one bed apartment. The studio was clean and tidy. The decor really needs updating as it's like something out of the 80's! The kitchen was slightly under equipped - no electric kettle or toaster but it's fine for someone with no children. The bathroom was spotless. The only complaint I would have is that the towels were changed every 4 days, when they could do with being changed every 2 or 3 days. The TV offers 2 full English speaking channels - Sky News and CNN, so you wont miss anything!

The restaurant food was good but expensive. The bar was well stocked and the prices were ok. The entertainment was ok. The usual cheesy singing and karaoke. There was also bingo and quizzes on occasion. The grounds were very clean and well kept and the pool was absolutely spotless with not so much as a bug floating in it! It's quiet apart from the occasional bit of music from the bar which you could barely hear.

The staff were friendly, all speak very good english and were always happy to help.

One piece of advice - DO NOT go down to the Jacuzzi/sauna/steam room. The smell was unbelievable and the Jacuzzi didn't actually bubble! We stayed down there for half an hour even though we paid for 2 hours. There's no windows in the place so I think because it hadn't been used much it became damp and the smell of the water just lingered. We couldn't even go into the steam room because we nearly passed out from the smell.

All in all, for the money paid I felt this was a good place to stay, clean, spacious apartments, close to the amenities of the area. Surrounded by restaurants and 2 supermarkets and an ATM. I would recommend this place for a cheap, comfortable holiday

  • Liked — The size of the room - it was very big
  • Disliked — The Jacuzzi/sauna/steam room facilities - terrible
  • Tips/Secrets — It's cheap and cheerful so don't expect too much
  • Stayed October 2006, traveled as a couple
