A really really nice place. Rooms are huge. We visited in early August. Family of 4 in a one bed apartment. Kids slept on the sofa bed which is suitable even for adults - it's not one of the fold out types. Bed in the master bedroom is huge.
The hotel is located well away from the Marina area, but is easily accessed by taxi (€4-€6) or the landtrain which stops at the hotel. Landtrain takes 40 mins to reach marina! But only takes 10 mins for the return journey. Taxi's at the marina are a nightmare to get. Huges queues taking over half an hour to get a taxi back to the hotel - perhaps this was something to do with the time of year but it did put us off going into the marina. The couple of bars and restaurants of the Old Village are only a 3 minute stroll from the hotel. The quality of restaurant is good here, we liked Zanibar. We ignored the bad reports (here on Tripadvisor) about Casa de Largo, big mistake! The Scottish woman who served us has to be the rudest waitress I have ever come across. Avoid! That said the food wasn't bad but the incident with the waitress soured the night for us.
Pools are beautiful and grounds well maintained. We used the pool with the slope entrance which was great for kids. Max dept of this pool was 1.2 metres I think. The other pool goes to a depth of 2.4 metres. Food was very good here, we had lunch on several days. The themed food evenings are good, we did the BBQ on the Saturday night. We had breakfast on the day of departure at a cost of €47 euro for two adults and two kids which I thought was outrageously expensive and not in line with the value for money for lunch, dinner etc.
Overall it is probably the best apartment accomodation I've ever stayed in while on a sun holiday. The staff are very very friendly and really helped make the experience a good one.
