“Fantastic holiday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Stayed I tropical sol for 2 weeks rooms are huge loads of space lovely and clean, however if you wanted a snubbed by the pool you had to get up at 6 am!! But it didn't spoil my holiday had a great time. Charlie's bar just round the corner from the hotel is fantastic lovely staff lovely food couldn't do enough for you, only 5 mins walk from the strip and 20 mins walk to the old town,

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor are the best get most of the sun all day

After browsing the internet for our usual yearly family holiday to portugal we come across this hotel, we liked the look of it read the reviews etc and so we booked it for 2weeks. 7th-21st July. I travelled with my 2 young children and my partner. What a great choice we made!
Staff are so friendly and helpful, even before we arrived we requested a ground floor and a ground floor is what we got. our room was so clean and very spacious! Daily maid service. The snack bar is quite cheap and the food lovely. The buffet breakfast in the main reception is delicious for only €5.50 and free for under a certain age so this suited us fine! I was getting quite worried before I arrived after reading reviews about stag and hen party's and that it wasn't suitable for families or children but I didn't have a problem with this once. As reviewed by other people sunbeds got reserved quite quickly very early in the morning, by 7am majority of sunbeds would of been took with towels. but all in all can't fault the hotel and will definitely be returning!!!!!

The whole hotel and our apartment were excellent.
The rooms were large, well equipped and very clean, with a daily maid service. The mattress on the bed was very hard (as were the pillows) which affected sleep quality though.
Decent sized and clean pool, not too crowded.
Plenty of sunbeds, although annoying that people get up early to place towels to reserve them. Hotel policy advises removing towels if you want to use a sunbed, but would be good if hotel staff did this to prevent this practice.
Friendly and helpful staff. Nice snack bar by pool, good value.
We stayed 14 nights and for most of the time it was very tranquil. There was a stag party and one other group who were noisy and inconsiderate of others trying to relax on three of the days, but nothing too outrageous. I guess this is the chance you take when you are close to "The Strip".
Plenty of shops restaurants and bars in walking distance.
We looked around the area at other hotels and this stood out as one of two of the best, judging on appearances. Some of the other guests had been here several times before and said this was the best hotel in the area.
We would definitely stay here again, but just hope for a softer mattress.

This has been our 3rd year in a row staying in these apartments and they are always excellent. Staff are friendly and very helpful and the rooms themselves are spacious and are kept very clean (every day except sunday) with clean towels etc. They are about 5 min walk away from the strip but are in a quiet area. Round the pool is kept clean and very tidy and the snack bar is reasonable also the food is lovely and the staff are friendly. Yes there does seem to be a few stag/hen parties but in any of the 3 years we have they have never got out of hand they wer just enjoying themselves. The only gripe I have and its nothing to do with the hotel its people putting their towels down at 2.30am in the morning (witnessed it myself and it wasnt the hen/stag party or younger people) and also not just a couple of beds it was 6-7 beds and then not appearing to after lunch the next day meanwhile the other people came down and had to put there towels on the grass as all the loungers had been reserved

Room Tip: Ask for a room around the pool area

Lovely informative greeting on arrival. We were staying for 3 nights as a hen party. Good mixture of families, couples and groups, but no issues.
Rooms were very spacious with modern white gloss kitchen cupboards! Request the large balcony rooms as they have sun loungers on them, although our balcony was nice with a table and 2 chairs.
Snack bar very reasonably priced for drinks and food.
Celebrated a friends birthday whilst away and they were happy to support this with putting the candles on the cake and serving it for us.
Lovely pool with a shallow walk around area.
Only issue was the sunbeds!!!! We had to be up with towels for 6am to get one for the day!!! The mat store opens at 8.30am for comfort on the sunbeds.
Breakfast in the main reception area was delicious and a great choice for 5 euros. The snack bar didn't open until 10am so this was our preferred choice.
The beach was a good walk but worth it.
There is a supermarket at the bottom of the hotel, but if you walk a few minutes you will find a large supermarket selling everything and much cheaper.
A sightseeing road train travels around the area and into the old town, where there are lots of shops and restaurants and an escalator in the hillside!
The hotel is about 5 minutes walk from the famous Strip with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops.
Highly recommended

Excellent hotel, pool was entertaining, although beds taken early, but mainly by families, so no issue there. Quiet enough to relax, yet close enough to bars and eateries. Really have not got no issues with the 5 days spent there from July 7th to July 10th N Eymar

Stay here with my family every year. Went for my first holiday with my boyfriend in July and was not dissapointed. Perfect location, staff, service and room. Room was ready for our arrival with clean towels and bed sheets which were changed every other day. Air con worked like a charm and we availed of a safe in the room. With just a 2 min walk to the strip & €5 taxi to the old town travel was not a problem. The beach was a 10 minuet stroll with ahops and bakery's located very close by. Best holiday & say iv experienced well worth the price. Cannot wait to come back
