“Would stay again....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Stayed 11th May to the 18th. Party of five blokes all around 40 years old reliving our youth.

Location is excellent. One road back from the beach, 5 mins walk to the nightlife, by which I mean the English Square etc but you don't get loads of noise from drunken people. We were on the 10th floor and we didn't hear anything. Having said that we were coming home any time between 2am and 4am so we were probably the culprits of any noise. Apologies! Not ideal if you wished to be near to the old town, probably a twenty minute or so walk to get there.

Had everything you need for self catering, kettle, microwave, toaster, fridge etc. We mainly ate out though as everywhere's pretty cheap.

Bedrooms seemed fine. Pretty basic but you're only there to put your head down. It's not five star material but we never had any problem sleeping. Alcohol may have aided this though. Two twin rooms with the fifth person having to sleep on the sofa. We thought there might have been a pull out bed but it was just the sofa. I don't think this was ideal for the fifth person but it sufficed.

The living area is spacious. As previous reviews have said you don't feel crowded or on top of each other. Balcony was fine too with views of the sea inbetween the hotels in front of the appartments. Ask for a room higher up if you want to see more of the sea.

Can't comment on the pool area as we never used it. Morgan's Tavern (Neptunes in the program) is in the street behind the hotel, as is Sol Pelicanos (the Solana).

Towels were changed two or three times during the week but the apartment wasn't cleaned or the sheets changed. Not that we minded, there's people starving in the world so not a big deal. We were in when the towels came once so they might have intended to clean then but decided not to as we'd be in the way. Have to give them the benefit of the doubt!

We paid a hundred euro deposit which was returned on our departure. Our flight left late on the Saturday night so we'd booked the apartment until the Sunday morning. The original receptionist told us that they were open until midnight on the Saturday evening so it wouldn't be a problem getting our money back. However, we had a phone call from reception during Saturday afternoon saying they shut at six and did want our deposit back?! Fortunately one of us was in the room when they rang, the rest of us had gone out, otherwise we may have been wandering down to a shut reception and no deposit later on! All's well that ends well though. I'm sure they'd have tried to contact us again (benefit of the doubt again).

One small gripe was there was no lock on the bathroom door so everyone had to announce when they were taking a shower, performing their ablutions etc.

Overall we thought this place was great. Mainly for the location, very little late night noise but it was also clean and had good facilities. A couple of small gripes but they were pretty insignificant in the scheme of things. Would we return again? Most certainly, if they'd have us :)

Well I have just come back after 8 days at this apartment I have got to say FAB its a great place to stay as its close to everything you need and 2 mins from the beach. All rooms have a good sea view too and are very large so you aren't falling over each other separate bedrooms and 2 bathrooms one with toilet and sink and one with bath/shower toilet and sink. But there are a few things that you may need to know just in case you stay here first the pool is FREZZING omg I nearly had a heart attack and is in the shade a lot but don't forget the beach is right there (but cost 4 euro for chair and 4 euro for parasol but me and my friend just got pool lye lows and sunbathed on them on beach for free) , second you have to give a deposit of £25 each per person that's in the apartment at the beginning of the holiday for damages but you do get this back at the end of the holiday. third its strange but there is 2 company's that run the apartment one in the apartment and one next door which is strange but not really a problem but thought its good info to know and last little bad thing was that we was there 8 days and the apartment only got cleaned once when we was there and beds was only changed once to but the staff were very helpful and was there when needed anything. Other than that I have nothing bad to say about this place and will defo be staying here again actually I'm looking for another holiday to stay here in the next 5 weeks and cant wait.

Room Tip: rooms to the side may have a little noise but you can still get to sleep but have more windows for a...

We are just back from a week at these apartments the apartment was a great size near all amenities and the busy bars though at night quiet enough to sleep if you wanted to we can't believe it is only a 1 star and would recommend it to any of our friends looking for a great place to stay we booked an apartment that slept 6 but only 3 stayed although before going out friends came round for a drink before going out and it didn't feel crowded at any time the towels were changed twice during the week and the beds were changed once staff were really helpful and friendly

Firstly , these are holiday rental apartments, not a 5* Hotel. The apartments have everything you need for self catering. Towels changed twice a week and linen once a week. Do you change these more than this in your own house? Aye right!! The reception is next door and is manned for ten hours, 9am till 7pm Some people must need a nursemaid if they need more than that! The apartment was spotless when we arrived and all the cleaning tools are there for you to keep it clean. Again, its not a hotel. The reception staff are lovely and friendly, the location is perfect and the rooms are spacious with fantastic sea views. We've stayed in these apartments about five times and although not as modern and stylish as my own house they are perfectly adequate for a couple of weeks holiday.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have a slightly better view

went to these apartments for a long weekend with 4 other friends, what can I say, everything you need, very spacious, 2 toilets, lovely balcony with seaviews, if you are looking for all the nightlife and bars then this is the place to stay.

stayed in these apartments many years now and they have always been well priced and the staff very friendly. The rooms do now need updating as they are very old fashioned i dont think the bathroom has changed since they were first built. Tony

I really do not quite get why these apartments are getting such good reviews. We stayed there for a short 4 night break, if it had been a main holiday break then I would have chose to move to somewhere else.
If you are going for a short break and want to go to the new town strip then this is the perfect location. All the bars, Morgans (Neptunes), John & Joseph's, Talk of the Coast etc. are directly behind you.
The apartments themselves are tired and a little depressing! during the 4 day stay, no cleaner, no emptying of bins, just a towel change. No reception - this can be found adjacent and is only manned until 8pm. Also please note that a £100 euro deposit is taken from you and you are given a full inventory of what's in the room.
I would personally not return to stay here

Room Tip: I have rated location as average but this is due to the distance from where I prefer and that's...
