Just returned from Silchorro, we had a large spacious private studio Lynmar owned by Martin and Lynne booked through Owners Direct. They met us at the hotel and gave us the keys and some handy tips. The Apartment was on the 8th (top) floor with great views. It had limited cooking facilities and a very small flat screen TV but was great for us, very clean, no air con but two fans which we found was fine, even for August.
The hotel has free wifi in reception and public areas, even round the pool, a little library to swop books and magazines, a computer area and supermarket (bit expensive)
Large pool deep at one end 2.1 m but also children's pool. Plenty of sunbeds but also nice grassy areas to put towels on.
As others have said there are stag/hen party's stopping at the hotel that did get a bit rowdy at times, but if anyone complained at reception, the staff seemed very good at quieting them down.
Pool bar drink prices were steep 5 euros for large (40cl) beer in plastic cup but the food seemed reasonably priced although we didn't eat in the hotel while we were there. It's about 15 mins walk down to the beach and about 10 mins to the strip.
Hotel bus runs to the old town a few times a day but we couldn't use it due to renting privately - no problem as bus stop is a couple of mins away and 1.40 euro got you to the old town or anywhere between (also to the bus terminal 1st and 3rd Wednesdays for gypsy market)
Lots of restaurants and bars on the strip with meals from about 4 euros for breakfast or Kabab etc. tourist menus for about 10 euros (3 courses) steaks 10 - 18 euros, house wine, sangria 7- 12 euros, beer 1.5 to 3.5 euros.
Overall I would certainly recommend the hotel although the hotel should maybe be a bit quicker to calm down rowdy behaviour, which would make it more family friendly.
