“Weekend Break”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

Just returned from a last minute weekend break with my daughter. I think I made an error in making the booking as I thought we were full board in Hotel Avenida across the shopping precinct from the apartments.My initial dissappointment was erased when we entered the apartment, it was spacious and clean and had a small balcony that got the sun in the afternoon, perfect!

We ate all our meals across the road at the Hotel. As usual at this time of year it was full of Spanish senior citizens out to have a good time and boy can they talk some! I felt like I was in the middle of the Spanish Jeremy Kyle Show but this was not them fighting just very animated people.

The food at the Hotel was of a good quality. I had booked this Hotel as it was part of the Onasol Hotel group and would have stayed at the sister Hotel Mar Blau but it has yet to open this season.Good choice of food that was alway hot and replaced regularly. Cava for breakfast always a good start to the day.One night they had a Mexican theme and there Chilli and fahitas were excellent. The choices might be tedious if here for a week but for a long weekend it was good.

The best part about this Hotel is the roof terrace on the sixth floor. Be prepared to hike up the stairs as the Hotel is serviced by two tiny lifts that fit about three people or eight spanish seniorsr! I am sure they were going for the world record to see how many they could squash in. That aside the views are worth it. There is a small swimming pool that was mostly in the shade and never used except by my daughter and I, I think it was too cold for the locals but this little beauty was as warm as a bath, total bliss added to that an empty jacuzzi lots of sunshine and a perfect winter break from the British weather.

The apartments and Hotel are in a prime location in the centre of the shopping area of the old town. It is very noisy as soon as you open your balcony door so not for those seeking peace and quiet but great location for a weekend break with everything on your doorstep and beach just one block away.

Would use the apartments again but would prefer to self cater but only if we still got the use of the Hotel pool. The one negative would be the bedroom, nice and quiet away from street in the interior of the building but window opens into the corridor of an enclosed atrium. I think this would be very oppressive during the summer with no fresh air and possible security risk. The air con was only in the sitting room/kitchen area.

Room Tip: Balcony a must.

Dear Munchbunch 4
Thank you for sharing your opinion with us and all readers of Trip Advisor. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the apartments and all the services we offer at both properties. Even if you come on self catering you can still use the pool, bar and animation service, so you can book selfcatering whenever you want. Please note though that we do not longer belong to Ona Sol, we are Mareny Sol now. It will probably be around 2 month more before we get our new Web page, but call us if there is anything you need. Please note also that the interior apartments are open to the other side, most with their spacious balconies, so there is no problema with air or security at all.

Yours sincerely

Got back last night, never again. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment number 406 .it was filthy , there were balls of dust the size of golf balls under the beds and collected in corners, there was only room for 2 on the balcony . We couldn't wait to get out of the place. Do yourself a favour stay somewhere else.

We did stay in this apartment hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it verry much. The apartment was on the second floor facing the walkway to the beach and the lovely restaurants on the street. Though the apartment is not big, it has everything you need for a short stay at least. The staff was nice and helpful, every thing was clean. Nice beds, and it was nice sitting on the balcony overlooking the crowd walking by. This place is well wourth looking at. the price was ok for those 3 days. And we could if we had wanted to go over to the Avenida hotel next door for breakfast and use their facility. We will recommend this aparthotel.

Room Tip: We liked our room it was 103.

Stayed here from last Tuesday got back yesterday You get dropped off at the Madeira hotel as the coach and cars do not go onto the streets near the hotel. It is only 1 street away so not a problem..Hotel is ideally located for the beach,eateries,supermarket and hundreds of shops for the great bargains!! The hotel is very clean and tidy,we had a 1 bedroom apartment and had a great side sea view room 103.There is a separate bathroom and bedroom and a large living area with full size fridge freezer,2 cooker rings a whistling kettle,the rooms do not have an oven....but who wants to cook right? The staff are very friendly and helpful Towels changed regular..We did not want to come home it,was so relaxing and low key, you could have believed you were staying in your own apartment.We can't wait to go back to stay here,it has everything you need right on the doorstep. You can use the pool in the sister hotel straight across from the apartments,it is more a lap pool with a nice terrace than a fun pool for kids to enjoy.There is also a Jacuzzi. It can get noisy outside,but it is just businesses setting up and all the local children going to school,this didn;t matter to us as we get up early anyway and was nice to see The one cafe at the top of the street is a good place for snacks,1 eoro for tea/coffee and only 2 for a burger,but I warn you,they are HUGE!! There is a lovely place at the top of the street that sells Churros..only 1.50 for 6....the kids loved them.. There is a 1 euro shop straight under the hotel.they had some lovely costume jewelry and sun glasses ect...There is a Sports shop straight opposite( Base),got a great bargain for some Nike trainers for my nephew.....All in all an excellent short break for a home from home feeling.Would recommend to anyone wanting a holiday without all the fuss and frills,

Very low prices no matter how long you stay,
Due to the low prices do not expect the high standards at 3 plus stars.
What you do get is a large living area with seperate bathroom and bedroom.
Only have two english TV channels and news ones at that but who watches much tv on holiday.

Have stayed a few times now and a street view apartment is best to ask for and rooms 102, 202, 302 have the best views as you can see right down to the beach.
Ohhhh i want to go back again now!!

Room Tip: ASk for street facing view, as some rooms do face back towards inner wall but it is lovely and quiet...

Currently staying here for five days. Nice location in old town quite close to the beach. Receptionist friendly upon arrival and indeed everyday since. You pay 60 Euro refundable deposit and 13.euros for safe hire half of which is refunded at end of stay. We have a one bedroom apartment which is spotlessly clean. Bathroom has a frosted window out to the corridor which we don't open whilst showering as some other reviewers have commented that you are visible from the corridor. It's ok to open it once you are finished. Towels are clean and have been changed twice and the bedding once during our short stay which we are happy with. The kitchen and utensils are again very clean and we have had a few lunches here using the microwave to warm up a purchased frittata. There is a two ring cooker provided which we didn't use as it was slow to warm for coffee. We used the cup facility on the microwave to boil water for a morning coffee. Perfect location to walk around the old town and have a lovely meal out in the evenings. The balcony faced out over the street and had a side view of the sea. Very pleasant. We requested a sea view when booking. Some rooms were facing towards a brick wall. Some times when you leave the lift and come out to the corridors there was an odour of refuse but this is not always present and perhaps may be from the recycling bins on each landing. There is no problems with the drains in the rooms and at no time did the apartment smell. All public area, corridors and apartments are very clean. You can hear if someone scrapes their chair on the floor above but I think this is the same in most places you stay and doesn't bother me. We had good night's sleep and only heard some guests laughing after a good night out as they returned to their rooms. Rooms have pull down shutters to bedrooms ours faced into the internal corridor so quiet and the lounge has blackout curtains and curtains. The street was quiet as it was a winter visit. Very nice stay overall during our winter visit. Quite cold during our visit but Heating is controlled by you in the room.

Ideal location on the edge of the old town. Great seaview from our rooms balcony (407). Staff very friendly and helpful. Room well attended to by cleaners more than expected. We know the area from staying in nearby apartments and could not fault our stay. Also benefits from ability to use facilities of Hotel Avenida directly opposite. Will definitely be there again.
