Just returned from a week self catering here. The location is fantastic, probably the best out of all the choices we looked at for a similar price. The pool (if not busy) is a great place to sunbathe and the guy on the poolside bar is really friendly. He seems to want people to have a good time and puts the tunes on every day, but after a week of hearing the same mix CDs it gets incredibly repetitive so new music needed and maybe a bit of chill out to begin with instead of banging on your ear drums with the bass first thing. That said you can always bugger off to the beach and mix it up a bit if you are there primarily to sunbathe. The beach is gorgeous, in fact the whole area of San Antonio bay is really pretty and I wasn't expecting this. The accommodation itself is pretty grim though. Yes a maid comes every two days, but you'd need a proper overhaul to get the apartments really clean. Our shower head didn't fit in the overhead fitting so just had to dangle over the taps, the taps were coming away from the wall and the bath was stained yellow even after cleaning. You really do feel a bit grubby even after bathing in it. We were given a toaster that you had to hold down while your bread toasted and pretty much everything in the apartment was very battered and dated. The beds are old looking too. Mattresses look like they have a thousand years worth of other people's skin cells embedded in them and the sheets although clean, felt damp as the bed area is next to the bathroom and gets no daylight ever so you feel a bit manky sleeping in them. The walls are as thin as paper and you can hear everything from every other apartment near to your own. People showering, people peeing, talking, women click-clacking up and down in their heels outside. Not one person seemed to care that they would be talking and shouting as loudly at 4 and 5am as they would in the middle of the day. I felt like I was sleeping in a tent at a festival. SO based on that, if you are there to get off your face and party til all hours then you won't care. If you are there to actually get some kip in at some point, you will have broken sleep at best. Bearing in mind this was not even in season I can only imagine that these apartments are an utter nightmare in peak season. The general clientele seemed quite chavvy and not very cool. (stag/hen/flags off the balcony/getting your bits out when you've had a few too many beers by the pool and thinking it's highly original types) so again if that's your bag, you'll love it and think what hilarious people you share the world with. Unfortunately I thought they were a bunch of c((ks so spent most of my time away from the place. In a nutshell if you simply want a place to lay your head after getting off your ti%s all night then this place is cheap and in a good location. If you ever want to actually chill out in your apartment and feel clean and comfortable, this is deffo not the place for you.
Like a lot of people tell you, if you want to be in the middle of a bunch of idiots getting their c...
