    “Not a good start”

    I booked this hotel for 1 reason, they claim to have a heated indoor pool. Point 1 - the pool isn’t indoor, it’s got a retractable roof which is currently off. Point 2 - it’s not heated, it was freezing cold. There’s an outdoor pool and the temperatures are identical. Wish I’d gone for a different hotel with better facilities but I chose this purely based on having a heated pool for a visit in May :( Don’t bother staying here, they lie. The selection of all inclusive food and drink is also terrible, most of the items on the menu are cheaper if you book all inclusive but very few are truly included in the price.

    “Served the pursose”

    Good location, close but no on it. No soundproof Apartments Friendly Average breakfast (didn’t use others) Freezing pools (even for doing lines, let alone relaxing) Apartments great for young families with children as more room and home from home feel like TVs in both spaces with ports if you take connectors If you want privacy, forget it. Ground floor means your windows face a walk to other apartments, you can heard conversations from other apartments

    “Location is close to Beach”

    Although the location is close to the beach but still the beach isn't clean and the property is close to dance bars and streets with all the smoking guys of young age and girls roaming here and there and personally I think that this property shouldn't be preferred by those who are travelling with family especially kids and old age parents as there are stairs between the main building and the rooms near the pool. Instead those with families should take the hotels near colonia Santa Jodi as the beach near this place is very clean and the place is also very decent although far away from the airport.

    “Great short break”

    The hotel is well presented and clean. This is ideal for a relaxing break - everything is on hand and easily accessible. The pool area is well maintained, and the bar area by the pool is very handy. Food at all mealtimes is presented well, plenty of choice and the quality is very high. What stands out from this hotel, is the friendliness and professionalism of the staff - they were fantastic. The location is good, only a few minutes walk to the sea front, with the usual choice of restaurants/bars/shops. I would recommend this hotel to all age groups.

    “Fairly close to airport”

    Very nice hotel which I chose because it advertised airport transportation but we didn't find out until after we had already checked in that they have transportation for parties of 8 and over only. Consequently be prepared for an E18 taxi fee. My daughter and I each needed separate cabs for different flight times. I spent time searching for a hotel with transportation and was very disappointed by the false advertising.
