“very basic”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

good value for money, but very basic apartments. The furniture is quite dated, and the beds were very uncomfortable, but cannot fault the cleaning staff, the place is spotless. Fine to use as a base for exploring and enjoyed the walk to the main strip most nights, although the harbour has some great places to eat too. One downside was the radio blaring all day poolside with English radio station that seems to play mainly adverts, could not wait to get away from it for some peace!

Room Tip: would not recommend poolside

Arrived at La Florida Apartments to find reception closed and a notice on the door stating
'if arriving after reception hours please use the side gate entrance', which we found down the
side of the supermarket down an alleyway next to some smelly bins..! Nice Welcome...
After entering through the side gate we came to a very poorly lit alleyway to find a lady behind the bar, who the gave us our arrival envelope with our keys to our room.
Has we had booked for Half Board we then asked where we would find the restaurant for our evening meal, to which she pointed to behind us to a 'so called' restaurant..
Again, very poorly lit, miss matched tables & chairs, pool table in the middle, no presentation whatsoever..!
The Lady then informed us that as we where the only Half Board Clients for our 2 week stay & was given a menu to choose our food from for the 14 nights we would be there.. 3 starters, 10 main meals, 3 desserts..to choose from...!
Not a good start..
Once we found our room, very nicely presented & everything you could possibly need for a Self Catering Holiday. Kettle, Toaster, Microwave, Fridge, etc. Bedroom with 2 single beds which were not the best mattresses in the world.. & bathroom a decent size.
We were given a ground floor which overlooked the Pool Bar & area so keep the curtains closed
if you want privacy. Doors lead onto a small terrace with table & chairs which doesn't receive the
sun until late afternoon.
The following morning we did ask to be moved to a higher floor but were told they were fully booked, but later we found out that the Apartments are For Sale & most of the upper floor had Sold.
Our first evening meal was acceptable but no atmosphere as we where the only 2 people eating in the 'restaurant'. Found it also very cold & dull in the restaurant, no a nice area for dining.
Breakfast was actually the same with one other couple eating who had booked for Bed & Breakfast and as they had very few bookings we where presented with a table which consisted of 3 toasters, 2 containers with white and brown bread to make your own toast, hot water pots
to make your tea & coffee, juice machine, cereals & any cooked breakfast you required you ordered from the lady behind the bar.. Was informed that once they had more bookings for Bed & Breakfast or Half Board they would then serve a buffet breakfast & buffet for evening meals.
After 2 days of the same menu we decided to complain & where offered a downgrade to Self Catering or Bed & Breakfast. We received a refund & choice Self Catering as the Apartment
is well equipped.
If you wish to eat in the Pool Bar, the Breakfast, any snacks or Main Meals you can pay for as you needed too.
During our 2 week stay we never heard of any other Half Board Clients & very few Bed & Breakfast, there is obviously very little demand for this & think the complex & management should take note, they are not equipped & the restaurant needs a facelift to even be thinking
of catering for Half Board Clients..
They should not beable to get away with it & surely an audit of some kind by the Tour Operators should be in place before any complex is allowed to offer Bed & Breakfast or Half Board to see if they are acceptable to do so..!
SO BE ADVISED. DO NOT BOOK HALF BOARD AT LA FLORIDA
APARTMENTS CAUSE YOU WILL BE DISSAPPOINTED...

Spotlessly clean but in desperate need of refurbishment. Rooms like a throwback from 70's. harbour nearby is beautiful but area round hotel is a dive. Good value for money for a cheap and cheerful break. Bar closes really early too.

we stay here last week on room only with our 2 year old. room was shabby and the cleaning was not really up to much. the apartments seem to be half private and half hotel owned. we were in 221 and 2 days in to the stay refitting work started in room 220, we were told the hammering/drilling would be off and on for 2 days, it was 4 days. we asked at reception about a move but we were told the hotel was full.. funny when i email an inquiry in about a room their was one free,
i would not stay here again, the room dated and shabby, broken tiles in lounge and bathroom areas.

Room Tip: do not stay here,
