After all the negative reviews I was worried about this one but needn't have been. We booked a 1bed aptmt but ended up in a studio with a double & single bed. As 2 women that was great so we didn't complain (prev experience in Turkey - 1bed aptmt = double bed only!). A couple of ladies we met confirmed that their 1bed did only have a double in it but easily got moved after speaking to the hotel.
We were in 1 of the more modern blocks & slightly below ground level. There was a little damp but nothing major. Was really impressed with the bathroom - good shower with a proper cubicle. Towels changed every day. The self catering facilites were limited but the fridge & 2ring cooker worked. But out SC holiday isn't about cooking meals in, it's more about breakfast & snacks in, meals out. Thanks to previous reviews I took a travel kettle with me which I waa glad about. The view from the balcony wasn't great. We looked out onto the hotel's washing line, which was full of sheets most days, but soon got used to that!
No problems with the pool & garden area where we ended up spending most of our sunbathing time because the main beach area was something else! Big enough beach, easy to get into the water - but so many sunbeds! We couldn't move the umbrellas and lost the shade at the hottest part of the day! One day we got a free dolmus from the hotel opposite (Elit) to another beach, which was slightly less busy but if you go make sure you know the time of the last bus back - we nearly missed ours!
All in all a good holiday. I'm not one for making recommendations but if I were to go back to Side I would consider using the Cats again
