I must admit its not a 5 star resort and yes we were a little disappointed when we arrived. The rooms are pretty basic and not particularly big but overall we had a comfortable stay. The air conditioning units are very noisy and can wake you up when they kick in. Our apartment overlooked the sea and what a great view that is to wake up to. Unfortunately seaweed gets washed up onto the man made beach and after a while does produce a bit of a smell. I spoke to a couple of people who own timeshares at that resort and it is their main gripe.
The swimming pool was clean (its part saltwater filled) and you can make use of free bikes to go on the cycle path across the road. A pair of ospreys were nesting in the trees and great egrets and ibis regularly landed on the lawns.
If you are used to top of the range then you will be disappointed. But if you are happy with a somewhere thats comfortable that provides a base and know what to expect then I'm sure you will be fine.
