Had a lovely time, spacious apartments just like the photos show.
Apartment - full size fridge/freezer is good, great for water, juice and chocolate. We had 4 changes of towels /bedding in 10 days though it does state 2 per 7 days. It is clean and comfy. Shower is not the best. We found aircon really good but twice it wasn’t working, call to reception and it was switched back on. Pool view apartment on second floor can see the sea (2201/2206). All apartments have balconies including ground floor.
We only cooked once in apartment for lunch– not sure equipment/ utensils would be sufficient for big families cooking. Balcony lights were switched off nightly at 12.30am.
We hired extra channels for 3.50 per day(for 1 day due to wet weather) – BBC 1, ITV1, CBS, Reality, Sky Sports 1 & Sky Movies 24.
Pilar entertainment person is so enthusiastic, pleasant, funny and good with kids. She has a difficult job.
Usual entertainment- Magician, reptile show, quiz, karaoke, pool comp – my 9 yr old loved it. Kid’s activity everyday around 11am for 1 hr. Nearing the end of our holiday when it was a bit busier with families other activities were being offered such as water aerobics, French Boules. Loads of entertainment on offer in New Town if you want.
Bar/cafe - Only had breakfast (good) and a snack (ok). Happy hour is cheap – people going out late started their night here or in our case early to bed, finished it here. Bar closed at 12am during our stay.
Has a big TV generally showing football, with an adult’s only pool table and dart board with a few fruit machines. Shoes/flip-flops have to be worn in the bar area.
Shop onsite is adequate, even had toothbrushes and travel plugs (not a great selection in cereals).
The games room inside has 3 pool tables, 3 air-hockey, football table, table tennis, basket ball game and the usual – has good air-con with a change machine. 2 outside pool tables. Internet (at reception) - 1 euro /20 mins – 2 euro/ 40 mins.
Pool is fab, no inflatables – lifeguard was put through his paces when we were there- a fake drowning with person at bottom of pool – he was really fast. I noticed water samples being taken every other day- they obviously take hygiene seriously. Whole site is clean. Showers available at reception.
The Hill – 2 continuous slopes, pleasant to walk down 15 mins to beach front (Poneinte) – if you carry on straight over at mini roundabout hill is steep but veer to left (the main traffic direction) and cross opposite supermarket (next right) less of a slope and more pleasant walk past shops and cafes. When at beach turn left less than 10 mins walk to the ‘Walking Street’ of the Old Town. Just before walking street is taxi rank for return (6/7 euro). We walked both ways – we are not really fit but used to dog walking. If you have very young kids/ or mobility difficulties you will need to use bus/taxi.
I did the Carrefour shop (very big supermarket- 12 euro return taxi). I would not do it again for our family size 2 adults 1 kid- happy to provide further info.
Taxi to Aqualandia/ Mundomar costs 10 euro each way.
Would go back here on a family holiday due to pool and we prefer S/C.
