My friend and I stayed here 20-27 May 2012 in one of the appartments, also at a good rate via Lowcostholidays.
Booked self catering, but it was set up like a hotel with a lounge kitchen area between the bedroom and balcony. Balcony quite small, only chairs, no beds.
The rooms were quite spacious and had 1 bedroom with twin beds with aircon (aircom not in lounge area) - matress's were very firm - small TV in lounge area with ITV 1 and BBC 1 & 2 and CBB's
Kitchen had fridge and 2 ring ceramic hob and microwave with grill in top - no proper oven though.
Good water pressure so powerful shower.
Maids emptied bins and changes towels dails, but couldn't see that they did any more than that, but I wasn't expecting this in self-catering anyway.
Pool was quite nice, but definitely not enough beds provided so get up early, having said that the beach was actually much nicer and only a 10 minute walk across the road - beds can be rented for six euros a day.
Great location, 5-10 minutes to beach, 5 minutes round corner to good sized supermarket, 5-10 minutes from the bottom end of the strip, so close for everything - good part was that the hotel was very quiet but as much noise as you wanted to early hours close by.
Old town was walking distance, but easier by bus or taxi - buses quite frequent during the day.
Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food, but loads of good restaurants nearby depending on your taste and pocket.
