We stayed in the apartment that the hotel offers, however, we found it all very misleading with regard to the accomodation. It is not clear that the apartment is located in another building 50 yards down the road and lacks the amenities provided by the hotel.
There is no Wifi available here, the lady at reception was quite dismissive of it stating 'sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't'- thanks for that!
The apartment is quite nice in itself although it is quite lacking in the facilities you would expect. There is no mini bar as provided in the hotel. There was only one lamp in the double bedroom and the bed is a fold out one which is really uncomfortable! There is only one plug in the room in total meaning another lamp couldn't be removed. The second room was ok with proper beds in twin style.
The bathroom only has a bath, there is a no shower available apart from one by the tap for washing hair while sat in the bath. For three people this isn't really appropriate, let alone 4 people and the hot water ran out after 2 baths meaning we had to boil pans for the third person.
Also make sure you book parking in advance as you have to park down the road in an underground car park which cost 63Euros for 3 days.
On a positive note, the tv was great and the lounge area was very spacious. Some of the staff were really friendly but it was dispapointing not being in the main building. The location is also fantastic and very close to the beach and other activities.
We'd go for the hotel rooms definitely though next time as we felt 500Euros was overpriced for what we got.
