This is a small complex, a fair walk from town.. A few shops down the road.. The apartments are very clean and large.. These are self catering but that is a challange as you have a single ring,( YOU HAVE TO PUT A PAN ON THE RING FIRST OR IT WONT WORK) microwave (with no suitable dishes to use it!) a toaster, kettel and fridge... The utensils are seriously lacking and only one bread knife as a sharp knife... The bathroom nice and large plenty of towels.. House keeping came every day and where lovely ladies.. The tv only has CNN in english and no music channel.. On the really down side thier is no bar or resturant. The pool was lovely, however it was very deep even in the shallow end with limited access in and out.. Lots of shady places if you arent a sun lover... This was great value for money, the staff very helpful and attentive.. You can borrow an iron for a small returnable deposit and a hair dryer.. Thier are plenty of sun umbrellers to borrow to take to the beach, but no beach towel rental.. Thier is a lovely dog who is clearly loved and cared for by everyone ( apparently he is the son of the last dog that lived thier) He has no owner so if you like dogs please spoil him with a few treats (lidl do a good selection ) I noted that a lot of visiters to this complex did bring thier dogs but they where all kept on leads.. I cant stress enought if you have any mobility issues this is not the place for you, it is steps every where and not just a few!!! it also feel this is an unsutable place to take children as thier is no childrens pool.. If the CEO of the company that owns this complex (one of many I understand) please get in touch as it would not take much to make this place a great place) All in all excillient value.

do not by taken in by the photos of these appartments they must have been photoshopped or taken a number of years ago. the reception was actually a garden shed yes a garden shed . on arrival we were told our apartment was ready but we couldn't check in as we were too early so we put our luggage in the luggage room well actually it was a plastic unlocked garden box where they also stored the irons toiletpaper etc. the pool area would definitely not meet health and safety standards it actually needs demolished. there were zero facilities the bar was closed the breakfast room closed and full of broken furniture . on the second day they decided to hose round the pool area and we spent the rest of the day ankle deep in mud , the appartments are a fair size and ok for basic needs we will not be returning and urge others not to book this accommodation either . I don't like giving negative reviews but I feel I have too as it was the good comments and photos that made us book .

Room Tip: don't bother

The apartments are clean and well equipped. The only problem is that the AC was only in the bed room. The swimming pool area is just fine. There is no bar or restaurant in the residence, but there is a supermarket and a snack right across the street. We have chosen Oleandro because it got free private parking and it was close to the old town (about 10 minutes walk) and you don’t have to climb, short and easy walk. You can take a taxi in your way back it’s about 4 to 5 Euros at night. It suitable for people with a car because the beach is a long walk.

There is a double bed in the bed room and two sofa beds in the living room. There is also a balcony.

The service is quite good, the girl in reception is very helpful.

The dog made our holiday,wish they had a fund set up for him so he could be well cared for,he
needed a bath badly and in need of some love and attention,the love we could provide but no
attention,we couldn't find a vets or pet shop any where.
the rooms were very well kept but glad we ate out as only a microwave and 1 electric ring to cook on, no scissors/tin opener which was not a problem as you can buy them from the shop near by.
maid service good,shame about the bar never been opened.
but definatley will go again just for the dog,if any one goes over would they take some spot on and put it on him, it was awful to see him scratch and he likes the dog biscuits from the super market ,well he likes anything.it was only 15 minutes walk to the Old Townlreally enjoyed it.

my wife and i wanted a short chilled mini break so chose the oleandro and we weren't disappointed.we booked through booking.com and stayed for 5 nights for a very reasonable price.the complex was very clean and the gardens were well maintained.pool area was nice and quite big.the room was big for 2 people and nicely furnished with air con and well equipped for self catering,kettle,toaster,cooker ring,microwave and blender.the room had 2 balconies and what made a nice change was that it was a double bed which was comfortable.there was a large wardrobe with a safe,lots of draw space in bedroom and lounge.the staff were very polite and friendly,especially elena,who came to our rescue as we had a problem with our transfer[booked separate].we booked it with shuttledirect who dropped us at the complex but then said we had to make our way to town centre to be picked up which is a taxi ride with cases.elena offered to sort it out for us so they did pick us up but cost us 10 euro's extra[won't use them again].15-20 mins walk to old town which is great.summing up we got exactly what we wanted,nice,quiet,enjoyable stay and would highly recommend.
