Do you love having a sweat tash??? If so look no further and stay at the Central Park apartments!!!
Trying to find a positive about this place is difficult so the only one we mustered up together was the fact it was a stones throw from the bright lights of the west end!
When we first arrived in Aug 2012 (11 girls, a creature and a gremlin on a Hen do) we were greeted by 3 lads who said........ "Welcome to the HEAT!!" little did we know they didnt mean the great Ibiza weather, they clearly were talking about the little ( and we mean little) Sweat boxes they called rooms. No Air con, no fans just pure heat!!!
Fret not though we did have a balcony, which was about the same size as the Hen's left leg!! it was small, and to top it off the hotel is shaped like a 'V' so not even the smallest of breezes could give you a glimmer of hope that there was a chance of cooling down!!
Not once did anyone on this trip use their hairdryer or straightners as, lets be honest it was pretty pointless as you ended up with beads of sweat just dripping from your face, so the sweat tash is not the best look we have ever had!!
Due to the shape of the hotel there is defo the opportunity for some good quality balcony banter, thats only if you and your friends can fit on the balcony, also you will defo get to see plenty naked bodies due to everyone leaving the balcony doors open in the hope for a bit of a breeze whilst getting ready!!
The staff....... well there is a woman tyrant on the front desk...BEWARE!! she doesnt hold back and i think she has the police on speed dial..... in around 6 hours she managed to shout at people on the pool table for having a well needed little minute, asking " Where do you think you are??". Then as people are kicked out of the rooms at 12 on departure day 3 lads were getting changed in reception, one of them accidentally dropped a trickle of sea water from his shorts onto the floor, to which she shouted......" You animals you better clean that up or i will call the police!!". Then a little later on a few lads were having a good old sing song on the balcony and few other groups started to join in.... without any warning to the lads about keeping the noise down.... BOOM a 200 euro fine!! But the 2 men on reception seemed in good spirits!
So we stayed here for 3nights, dont get me wrong we we had a riot, plenty banter and laughed from start to finish..... but we came home about 3 stone lighter due to fluid loss from every minute spent inside the sweat boxes!!!
Our advice to you is after reading this review you still choose to stay at the Central Park, get your self down to the beach, fill up your beach bag with sand and take it back to the room and sprinkle it all over your bed and in the bath so you can always feel close the greatest thing on earth which is ........ SAND!!
Our other advice to you is find a hotel with air con so you dont have a constant sweat tash, constant wet hair and the feeling like you have never had a shower even after 3 showers a day!!
I hope this review has helped because im pretty sure i wouldnt of booked after reading the cold hard truth!!
