On arrival the hotel/ apartments look quite impressive. The reception area is light and spacious, the staff helpful and efficient.
The room was of a good size and layout,and importantly very clean.
Then came the first meal of our half board stay. underwhelming is probably the best way
to describe the experience.Although the standard of the food was okay or average at best,the choice was poor.A small buffet trolley with 3 or 4 options, was not good enough, and to be fair a real let down.It felt as though there was a requirement to have a restaurant on site but with no real effort to provide quality or perhaps there was a budget for the proprietor to stick to, either way, not good. The staff in the restaurant were great and very friendly and i would not have any complaints about the breakfast, which was always very good.
Outside was a play area or swing and slide. there were no seats on the swings, so they could not be used. No excuse for this as it would not cost a fortune to fix.
Location was very good. 10 Minute walk to the beach,a lovely beach. 10 Minute walk to the strip,not so scenic, but if i was in my twenties i would probably of loved it,but alas i am not and therefore i didnt.
5 Minutes in a taxi to the old town which is great and the zoomarine is a great day out.
Supermarket is just around the corner from the hotel and a great italian restaurant to the right of this. So all things considered i would return but not half board basis ,bed and breakfast would be fine.
