My sister and I took my mum here for her birthday in September 2012. The apartment block doesn't look like much from the outside but i have never stayed in such a spacious apartment! It was excellent value for money.
Downsides were that the decor and furniture is slightly outdated, there was no kettle (we boiled water for a cuppa in a saucepan on the cooker) and the pool side snack bar advertised is no longer open.
However, the size and location of the apartment more than made up for these minor issues. The apartments are located between the old and new towns - a 10min walk from either. We got an all day ticket for the tourist train each day which only cost a few euros and runs throughout the day - there is a stop about 2mins from the apartments.
Towels and sheets were changed every other day during our 6 day stay. Free wifi (ask for the password when u arrive).
The pool area was fine and kept clean. Since we went during low season we had the pool to ourselves most of the time!
There is a tesco-like supermarket approx 50m from the hotel which was very handy.
Overall we had a lovely stay here and would stay again!
