Stayed here for a week July 2014. The location was excellent. Just far enough away from the strip to avoid all the noise, but not far to walk. Close to bars, beach and shops and bars.
The pool area is lovely, plenty of sun loungers - never had to wait for one. Spa tub was lovely too, but only opened later in the afternoon. The room was a good size and cleaned every day except Sunday. Towels and bedding changed regularly. The staff were lovely and although they worked long hours, they were always smiling, happy and joining in with the entertainment. They are a credit to the hotel. The food was reasonable. Plenty of choice for the main course at dinner time, but always the same choice of chips, boiled rice and tinned/frozen veg. Breakfast was continental or an extra 2.50 euros. Air conditioning cost 35 euros for 7 nights and the fridge was locked and cost 10 euros to get it unlocked for the week. The hotel will do you a packed lunch for trips or airport for 5 euros, but you can also buy sandwiches at the local supermarkets for about 2 euros each. The only negative I would comment on is the TV which is a small old fashioned set. With the cost of TV's today, the hotel would do well to replace them with flat screens.
The entertainment was karaoke or tribute acts which were okay but there was plenty of other entertainment close by if you preferred. I would recommend this hotel for any age group.
