Located in the quiet suburb of sonnenland we liked the el cardonel, we visited in Jan and it was very quiet with many couples renting apartments for the whole winter. The apartments are quite large for 1 bedroom units, sofabed in living room and two beds pushed together in the double bedroom, loads of wardrobe space, you have to pay for TV so we did without all together but had our ipod dock.
Pool is unheated so very cold in low season but the weather was great, its a long but gentle walk down to the dunes and beach takes about half an hour if youre able bodied its not a problem. The temperature in Jan was between 22-30 each day and didnt need a jacket at night just a hoodie/cardi
There is a supermarket close by and a larger hypermarket a short taxi ride away.
We did get an issue with ants in the apartment but think thats expected in hot countries, the maids did do a decent clean each day. Simple kitchen, fridge etc but we ate out for main meals, the bar was nice for a quiet drink/pool etc and there are enough restaurants in the resort.
Playa del ingles was the nearest place for partying and there was enough 'life; even in winter.
I'd go back, its cheap and cheerful. think of it as good budget accomodation and you'll not be dissappointed I dont think. we aid £160 each last min fr flight/apartment etc and thought it was fab value
