This complex is basically miles from anywhere and on an industrial estate. It’s quite hard to find in the dark and wasn’t listed on my GPS. The site is pretty much a dump and not maintained well at all. Only one of the swimming pools was open, the other had green water and rubbish in and the third one outside reception completely empty. The pool which is not heated and freezing only opens at midday. The lift was faulty and kept slamming the door on you or not opening at all. There were windows hanging off, light sockets hanging off and cobwebs everywhere. The actual apartment was fairly modern and a good standard apart from the bathroom which was cracked, old and dysfunctional. The bar closes at 11pm and doesn’t even open Sunday afternoon. There is no atmosphere or entertainment. The food is very expensive and basic. I went to reception to ask for leaflets on what to do in Madrid and they said they do not have any! They charge you 6 Euro a day to park but some people just park outside the hotel on the road as it’s free. Security was not an issue and was good. There are no utensils or even plates in the apartment you have to rent them! You have to pay an additional cost if you want your apartment cleaned. It’s not all tourists and many residents live here but have dogs so every night dogs would bark for hours. These apartments are cheap but really I would not recommend them. Spend a bit more and stay closer to the action. It’s not terrible by any means but just not great.
