Myself and partner made a very last minute booking specifying Arillas as we'd visited once before and were not disappointed to end up at the Makris apartments. They are set back from the main part of the resort (by a 10 minute walk) and have fabulous views of the surrounding countryside and sea.
We were in a 2 bedroom apartment, which was huge for the two of us. The decor is old fashioned but spacious and clean and the facilities were fine. Having three balconies with fab views was a bonus. The pool area is good - clean and with plenty of sunbeds. These were hardly used at all until the afternoon when we visited so had the pool to ourselves in the morning! The pool bar serves the usual drinks and also serves simple reasonably priced hot and cold snacks - which were perfect if you don't fancy the walk down to the resort front. We didn't cook in the apartment so can't comment on the kitchen equipment, but there seemed to be everything you'd need to prepare your own snacks.
I can't recommend the resort of Arillas highly enough. It's small and friendly with enough bars and restaurants to keep you happy for a week or two. The food in the restaurants is really very good - not expensive and good quality. If you eat at the right time on the sea front you can also witness the fantastic sunsets that disappear over the sea while you eat - so pretty! The beach is good, the resort has a 'safe' feeling and there's also few shops to buy souvenirs/provisions from. All in all it's a lovely place.
I would recommend Makris if you're after simple but nice, quiet apartments and would definitely recommend Arillas.
