On arrival I admitted to thinking why have they sent me to the back of beyond. Rocks, dust, miles from no-where. However, the apartments, set over two floors are just over a year old, are modern with all the convenience of home. There are two pools, one for the younger children, a small bar providing drinks and food. There are sun lounges around the pool as well as tables and chairs for chilling, eating and enjoying the entertainment put on in the evenings. There is a shuttle service to and from the beach and shops.
For me, I felt this apartment was ideal for people wanting to do little more than get away from crowds, to relax, swim and sun-bathe. If you want to pop out in the evenings for a drink or for night entertainment, you will need a car!! As mentioned in the other reviews, there are still teething problems. The A/C was not working fully, we had no Internet or Wi-fi access after the first day but we later found out you can rent a mobile phone. Building work is still going on in the area and at the site but the work at the hotel appears to be in the final stage and is in the new apartments so there was very little disturbance.
Also, as mentioned in the other reviews, the staff were cheerful, polite and very helpful. The apartments, internally and externally, were always cleaned and tidied to a high standard. The TV showed the Disney Channel, BBC world news and Sky news in English but most of the channels were in German or Spanish. However, a huge selection of films are provided from which you can select 3 films per day at reception who will put them on a USB stick for you to watch in the apartment. There is also a DVD player should you or your children have DVDs you want to watch.
It should also be noted that reception is not open 24 hours so if you do not think you will arrive at the hotel before 11pm, you need to phone ahead to ensure a key is left for you.
