We recently stayed in these apartments for a number of days (7 days at the end of Oct 2013 "quite time of the year") and unfortunately the noise was unbearable. We pick these apartments so that we would be in walking distance to the main bars & restaurants. The development is located of the main street " veronicas strip" which holds a number of the main bars including a range of prostitutes sitting on the wall outside the hotel. Our apartment faced outward onto the street on the second floor and there is a number of bars located on the lower floor which seem to only open after 10pm. They offer karaoke up until 4pm, which results in NO sleep. There was a large group of us staying at the apartments and some of my friends were located at the other side of the building, they also had the same problem as the sound echoed around the building. We are all in our twenties and we are up for a good night but don't stay if you want to get some sleep!!!
Its not worth the money we paid with that level of noise, find somewere else!!!!!

Room Tip: Locate at rear/middle of the building as noise is unbareable.

We stayed in the playazul the first week in September and I have to say it was surprisingly good! After reading some reviews we were a bit worried that the apartments weren't going to be great as some pictures were bad! But I have to say I've never been so surprised with an apartment than I was with playazul! We got a two bedroom apartment and it was absolutely huge! It could easily fit six people comfortably. The beds were very comfy and the rooms super clean. The location was fab only a one minute walk from the main strip of clubs pubs and restaurants. So was easy access but far enough to avoid any noise and disturbances! Would definitely go back as we got the room for a fab price! Highly recommend and suitable for both families looking for a relaxed holiday as well as those looking for a party holiday :)

My brother and his family had been here 3 times. Me and my 3 teenagers went with them and 20 other freinds July 2013. The teenagers loved the night life. Beer and food is cheaper than cooking it yourself. We loved the restaurants and bars. Very clean and friendly resort and hotel. There is only a poolside bar in the hotel, serving nice simple food, coffee, beer, etc until 6pm. The water park is a 10 minute walk away. Bring wet shoes or buy them in the park as the ground gets very hot for bare feet. The hotel is kept clean in all areas. Lots of free sunbeds. Shops and bars close by. You cannot hear the noise from the clubs but they are only a 5 min walk away. No air conditioning but the ceiling fans work just as well "if you have them swithched on properly" to blow the air down, not up. Pub next door serves full breakfast for €3. Note that breakfast never includes tea coffee in the resort. Warning about clubs, keep close to friends as drugging drinks is common as in most clubs these days.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view or room with a view or you may get the apartments to the rear with no view.

Firstly upon arrival we didn't even get a proper safe or a travel cot. and one of the beds was in the livin room and not even as good as the others so suited for 4 people not more. The bar is ok, very little selection and well hidden from the pool so you can barely even notice it. no entertainment so very dull during evenings. the pool was great as you always had a seat but the baby pool was ridiculous!! the kitchen area was not that good, not big enough plates etc. the cleaners did come in mostly every day but only to clean and fix the bed sheets(THEY DID NOT GET CLEANED AT ALL)

hard to get sleep because of the noise of the others staying, you don't hear the strip at all. i certainly didn't!

too many steps, lift was so small, staff were OK, but not always trying to reach out to help you, internet costs per hour.

i wasn't expecting much when we booked mainly due to the little price we paid however, the room was spacious with all the amenity's you require for a stag party the location was ideal for going out. Your on the strip, literally its a three minute walk and you are at linkers bar plenty of food places near by, don't bother having breakfast anywhere it was all rubbish cheap sausage and streaky bacon.

We had to pay an 80 euro deposit per room when we arrived having spoken to other guest we found out we were the only ones that paid it, maybe cause we were a stag party??

Staff at the hotel were friendly in all a good party place would I take the Mrs there?? good question probably not, to rough, one of the lads was mugged in the first night by some Moroccans on the second night we seen a car being stolen again by Moroccans then we seen some Irish lads on the floor below being beaten by police officers.

There was a sign on the back of the door explaining about muggings etc we failed to notice this until after the event by this time one of us were 200 euros down.

would I go again? yes I would but with the lads only veronicas strip was mint not a cock fest like magaluff didn't see any trouble we were out everyone was very friendly.

Room Tip: away from the main road

I am just back from a 10 day holiday with 4 girls in total.

We paid very little for the entire stay so wasn't expecting much especially based off what other people have said in reviews.
I would like to say now that staying here was the best decision of the entire holiday. The apartments are very close to the strip we never got a taxi anywhere not because we weren't bothered but because it was that close. The apartments are cleaned almost daily with fresh towels, bins emptied, floors swept and toilet paper. In the kitchen you have a toaster, kettle, 2 ring stove, oven and freezer/fridge and a good amount of cooking supplies, cutlery etc.. The beds where very comfortable and during our stay we gathered the sheets where changed once.
The pool area always has sun so there's never a risk of missing it.(there are umbrella's if you don't want to sun yourself) and the there is a great pool side bar. Late at night the front door is locked and you need to buzz to get in so not much of a fear of crazies getting in.The reception staff where lovely and helpful they don't care what you do as long as you don't disturb others.

This is a great place to stay with a group of friends for a fun holiday. It is not designed for families it is so close the strip that I know I wouldn't like to go as part of my family and although the noise was fine for me if you where trying to sleep it could get bothersome as the music starts early and goes on late.

Room Tip: We stayed in 201x- a beautiful view of the pool and close to reception. Would recommend asking for a...

I've been here twice now on 2 different stag do's. Its clean, big rooms, slightly dated, but good value for money. It did seem to be more younger travellers, but there was the odd family here. Location is good too, near some decent places to eat, a couple of local bars (Murphys, Wigan) just outside and only a few minutes to linekars, tramps and the strip.

I didn't see any other stag do's on my visits, so wouldn't just class it as this type of hotel.

Room Tip: they have one euro beer can machines !
