Stayed here for a week as a couple and couldn't fault the hotel at all. The hotel arranged our transfer for us and it all went smoothly. When we arrived the receptionists were lovely and told us they had given us a free upgrade! Our room was great, we arrived on my boyfriends birthday and I had arranged with the receptionists beforehand to have a bottle of bubbly in the room, that was there nice and chilled in a bucket of ice when we got to the room, 5 minutes after been in the door bell rang and the hotel had brought a cake for my boyfriend which was a really nice touch!
The apartment was big and spacious and we had a great balcony that the sun shined on from around 3pm until sunset which was perfect when we got in from the pool to chill out on for a bit.
Hotel was very clean, maids came on a daily basis, we heard no noise whatsoever and we were in the main building (no stag or hen parties like mentioned on previous posts) lots of families and couples enjoying themselves.
Pool bar really good price and the snack bar was perfect for a quick lunch. Again the staff at both were really nice! The pool area was lovely and clean, always sun bed available too!
5 minutes walk to the strip which was handy. We walked one morning to the old town and it took ages on main roads so would definitely recommend a taxi for the sake of €5! We personally preferred the old town, lovely place and some lovely restaurants and bars! Some have beautiful views of the beach and sea! One of our favourite restaurants was 'Urban Pizza' in the old town, would defo recommended! Also a little place around the corner from Vila Petra called O'leaos which does lovely steak on a hot stone at a really good price with lovely staff!
One little tip for the ladies is that it can get quite chilly on a night so I would suggest taking the odd cardigan to keep warm :-)
