This is our third stay at the Eirasol and it keeps getting better.
This time we stayed in room 101 (a studio). The previous two visits we had a one bedroom apartment but studio was still very spacious and had everything you would expect.
We were there for ten nights, room was cleaned everyday except Sunday and we were left fresh towels, toilet rolls every second day. Bedding was changed on two occasions. This, we were more than happy with. I am glad to report that the door lock system has been updated replacing the old fashioned keys and locks with a key card system which I found much easier to use. The air conditioning and safe are now also free of charge.
Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. One morning we reported to reception that the light in our bathroom was not working. On returning to our room that afternoon it had been fixed. The lady who worked on the pool bar was particularly friendly and didn't pass us once without stopping to say hello and for a quick chat.
Pool area was very quiet during our stay which suited us perfectly. We had our choice of sunbeds no matter what time of the day we went down.
The apartments are still a bit noisy at night when people are returning from nights out. Also because the apartments are situated beside a busy road, there is a bit of noise from traffic. I assume this is down to thin walls/soundproofing problems but this was a minor issue and most nights did not affect our sleep quality at all.
The Eirasol is a short walk (5/10 minutes) from the strip however far enough away so that you don't hear the noise or music from the bars.
My only criticism would be the lack of reception/security at night time. You do have a key fob to open the outer door but having a member of staff on reception/night porter would maybe make guests feel a little bit safer knowing they can contact someone during the night/early hours if the morning if the need arises.
Overall, a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.
