Booked a weeks holiday at the apartments, then started reading over some reviews and wondered if we should have changed our accommodation but we decided to see what like when we arrived.
We were given (no 35) and found the apartment very spacious, bathroom really big and clean, stepped out on to our terrace and the pool right in front of us. Normally we like to have an top floor apartment (don't like beasties coming in) but as no lifts this would have been impossible with a 10 month old. As it turned out, most people with babies/small children were put in the ground floor ones. We were very lucky, there was an elderly couple above us and we didn't know they were there until 2 days before we left and they had been there for over a week, no high heels at 1am or loud music. We were also lucky in that the rooms on either side of us had no people in them for the whole week.
When we heard the entertainment/music the first night, being a light sleeper, I thought - late night - but as the bedroom was to the back - we never heard anything. Most nights it finished at 11pm and we sat on our terrace and watched what went on. Simon who run the entertainment was really good and was not offended if you did not join in and would always stop and speak, thumbs up to him.
The only complaints we had , was that we had to go and ask reception if we could have clean towels on the 5th day and the maid did bring them very proptly to us but no beds were changed and no cleaning was done and you had to take your rubbish bags to the bins (which are situated next to the bus stop) we had to keep our plastic bags from the supermarket to use in the household bin as they did not provide spare bags. Also beware, don't put 4 euros in the tv slot as it runs all night and runs out best put in 1euro and remember not to leave on standby
The reception staff were very nice and helpful and because our pick-up time was not until 14.45 we asked if we could keep our room on longer (vacant time is 11.00am) with having the baby this we were allowed to do and did not charge us as the room was not getting used again that day, normal cost is 5euros per hour.
The spar supermarket across the road is handy but is bit pricey but handy to pop to if you run out. Walk down the road to the statue go along to the left past the fun-fair past the "TOP SUPERMARKET" and past the Lacoste shop go round the corner and across the road to the "ASDA" this is the cheapest. The fresh bread was half the price to the spar shop it also sells cold meat and cheese which they cut while you wait even cans of juice were cheaper.
We visited the Haiti restaurant three times, the two waiters were very nice and coped well with a very busy restaurant, they even went to the shop and bought the baby a little teddy, try their lasagne. The first chinese restaurant round the corner from the Haiti was very good and again the staff were friendly, although it was baby who got all the attention!
We went into town on the bus and because the stop was beside the hotel you get picked up and dropped off there really handy. Although you can walk it, it takes about an hour, wear comfy shoes!
Did find it expensive (but not Spain's fault) to go shopping and perfume at the airport was cheaper back home.
