“Good ..but a pity about the sun- beds!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

We stayed here for a week in February and found the facilities very clean and perfectly comfortable. Very close to a lovely beach..very nice, friendly staff. One big problem...too many of the other guests (all British or Irish) reserved the sun beds with their towels from 8.00 in the morning until 7.00 in the evening and a lot of the time they didn't even use them! It was annoying that they did this with no regard for other people..and the staff did nothing to stop it. Once upon a time only the Germans had this reputation but on this occasion the Brits and the Irish let themselves down badly!

I won't repeat what others have said ref location and shops/bars etc as all accurate but will say what an amazing little jewel this place is.
We have travelled a lot and don't always feel the need to leave a review but these people need commending for being so happy, friendly and brilliant at what they do. Yes this is basic self catering and things are for hire but we knew that before we visited. Don't expect the ritz for travel lodge money and you will be fine but saying that this place is spotless.
We had my 40th birthday feb 10th here and my hubby e mailed asking for flowers and fizz for our arrival. We got this and despite trying twice to pay for it the management insisted it was a gift from them, Eduardo in the bar even had a cake made. We have never stayed here before to expect special treatment but ourselves and the two other couples we travelled with would not hesitate to return.
I can't emphasise how nice the people are here staff and guests alike. We have been looking for somewhere to fall in love with and return to like a home from home place and we have found it here.
I nearly didn't leave a review just so you all stay away and we can get booked easier but as it's popularity already speaks for itself I hope to see you there soon.
Thankyou for such a memorable and lovely 40th.

The location of these apartments are a real selling point, just above the strip and a large spar next door makes them very convenient. The apartments themselves are very spacious and well maintained with regular cleaning. Like all apartments in the area the beds are atrocious but that's regularly the case. The apartments have a lot of reasons to go but there are two really small things I wish I knew going there .. There's no shallow end in the pool for kids and the entire pool area goes into the shade quite early (around 5).. Neither are massive deals but important for kids who want to be in the pool and sun worshipers! Overall a definite thumbs up

5th Stay at the apartments for us. 2nd time in room 8A and just as good as ever. They could consider a little spruce up, check up on the slats on the sofas maybe - but nothing at all major. We had a hire car and parking there is simple if you get a dinky car.

Elena Apartments are really easy to find and extremely central to the whole resort. Drive along the front and once the pavement opens up really wide on your left, you'll go uphill and you'll see Tequila Bar and O'Reillys on your Right... take the next Right, the Right again and you are there. It's 10 mins from the airport. It really is THAT easy.

WiFi (Free), cheap bar, little pool and lots of sunbeds make the Elena Apartments an absolute no brainer. 10/10

Room Tip: Ask for "rear of pool" if you are in any way worried about the nightclubs/bars on the fron...

My partner and I went on this holiday, this was our fith stay at the Elena Apartments, and we stayed from 8th Feb 2014 for one week.

We travelled with Ryanair, from East Midlands Airport. We had a hire car booked with AutoReisen.
The car hire pick-up went very smoothly and the drive took about 10 minutes, the return drop-off of the car also went very smoothly and once again felt we would hire a car on our return.

On arrival to the Elena Apartments, we were greeted and informed we had been allocated an apartment in the 2nd part of the complex, as per my request. This made us very happy indeed. I hired a safe for the one week, which cost around €10, plus a €5 euro deposit, which was returned to us at the end of the holiday.
With the key to your apartment, you also have a key to the gates of the complex, as the gates are locked at 10pm, although we found they became locked around 8.30pm most nights. So you did feel nice and secure.

Our apartment was on the first floor, and had around 8 steps leading up to the door. We have had this apartment before, and as it hasn’t changed, you can always read my past reviews for the description of it.

The apartment was clean and in good condition.

The complex is in a perfect location, you are just two streets back from the main strip, if you are in the second part of the complex. Which means little to no noise from the pubs/clubs on the main strip
The bar, reception (free wifi) & pools are in the first part of the complex. The bar prices are excellent value for money.
We will as usual be returning to these apartments

Arrived to a very quick and friendly check in. I had asked via email for room on back road, as we had been before some 7 years ago remembered they were quiet, we were given just that and it was two bedroomed having only booked and paid for 1, it seems they really want to accomodate you. Apartment spotless, even the furniture on balcony not a speck of dust. bar staff very friendly and reasonable prices. Location is spot on, straight out to supermarket then half a minute onto seafront.
