We were very unsure about these apartments as we only read the reviews AFTER booking! If you look deeper into the previous reviews about negative points I think you'll agree that they just had a niggle that obviously ended up spoiling their holiday for whatever reason.
We on the other hand had a wonderful time. Having stayed in hostels to five star hotels over the years and plenty of trips abroad, Joinal villas were comfortable, clean and family friendly. Posted are several photos to give you a better idea of the villas and it's surroundings. The complex is totally enclosed and is well maintained. We even caught the cleaners sweeping the grass of petals and leaves. We also didn't expect a daily maid service, so if you want your beds changed and fresh towels this is the place to be. Reviews on the kitchen have been negative, well I'm a chef and found the facilites perfect for a weeks holiday. There was a basket of fresh food to welcome us (just the basics, coffee, tea, bread, milk, biscuits, etc.), and several large supermarkets close by (make a shop on the way from the airport). Comment on earlier review regarding a dangerous overhead extractor is to be ignored! It is tiled and I'm sure if you wacked it, it's going to hurt but I'm 6'2" and had no problem. The large pool was clean and inviting with a smaller child/baby paddling pool close by. Our kids loved the swings and climbing frame which was a safe area for them to play. They also loved meeting new friends at the complex which gave us time to enjoy ourselves too. There are numerous restaurants, bars and beaches within close poximity. We hired a car wich gave us the freedom to visit the sand sculptures, zoo, marine play park, marina, towns and beaches further afield. All in all this is a place that we would encourage you to stay and we would certainly return in the future.
