My husband and I travelled in May to the Areias Aparthotel with our two chidren, 10 and 8 years old. We were hoping for a quiet, relaxing, one week break. The hotel is modern, bright, spacious and very clean. We really could not fault the hotel itself. It is down a quiet road and there was very little noise in the evening.
However, the very big downside is that it is so close to the strip. The strip is absolutely dreadful!!! Each evening there are people pestering you to come into their restaurants or bars! This was extremely irritating. It is completely tacky with neon signs and cheap and nasty goods in the shops. Quite frankly we did not feel safe going down there in the evening. We saw a fight take place and that scared us from going back. There were loads of people on stag and hen parties and they were loud and drunk most of the time. The area is very built up and the noise is deafening in the strip.
On the day we were leaving, two sets of stag parties arrived at the hotel. The first group headed for the poolside bar and were loud but not too obstreperous. The second group were complete louts - hung aroung the kids pool drinking and roaring. We were glad we were going the next day. Not ideal for the kids!!More
