had upper apartment....just as spacious, real sun trap!! everything you need within 10 minutes. house keeping every day. pool just nice even in March!! pool pretty much to yourself......jackpot! supermarket 3 mins away. then a good 2 miles of restaurants right on the sea front. if u book any trips use the "last minute" tours, much cheaper than anyone else and shops everywhere! Timanfaya volcanoe trip a must.....breathtaking views with a camel ride at the end! you go around the national park on your coach and stop off at various points for photographs/ cafe/toilets etc (the beast views from a coach are if you sit on the left hand side right at the front if possible). Back to the apts, reception not open much but i doubt u will need it. Air con nice but be warned the remote for it is screwed to the wall in a metal box with a hole so u can only switch it on and off (so u cant adjust temperature/rotate etc) if your nimble enough u can get to the other buttons with a cotton bud! i did! haha. either that or take a phillips screwdriver with you! the only thing slightly negative would be that the upper rooms have a smaller boiler than the lower and they tend to run out of hot water quickly when your showering. Managed ok with just the two of us but anymore and i would request a lower room. But as u will find out, water is like gold dust over there so its understandable. Went to Pinochio's restaurant on last night and it was one of the best....steak and gorgonzola....delicious! Lots of cosmetic shops, really cheap. All genuine. Pandora charms too! Airport sells everything but newspapers or books and has food from pizza hut to burger king to a sandwich shop....but really expensive.....£10 for a Whopper meal!!! Another tip....when you arrive at Riviera park, u may find there is no one there to give you your key. If this is the case will will need your mobile to ring the number on the wall (pay phone down the street) and they will then give u a code for a box on the wall which contains your key. Also be warned its 12 euros for the safe, which you get back, but if theres no one there to give it you back on your last day/night then your not getting it at all!!
I rarely go to the same place twice, but i'd definately come here again. You may find this place on the Thomas Cook web site, but i found it on the Direct Holidays web site for quite a bit cheaper and you also get 5kgs more luggage allowance (20kg total) and your inflight meal is included too! But if u really want to save some money, go to Riviera Park direct (not sure of website address, sorry) and just get a flight with Jet2 or someone! Probably cost you 10 - 15 euros in a taxi to/from airport. which is peanuts really for the time you would save (no dropping others off).
Again, fantastic apartments, fantastic place....you can't go wrong!
