I stayed here with my wife, 2 year old son and six month old daughter 30th June to 5th July 2010. We stayed in a sea front 2 bed apartment on the 3rd floor which had a lovely view but unfortunately the noise levels from constant buses, boy races with noisy exhausts, motorbikes and worst of all teenagers hanging about till 4am in the morning shouting all contributed to keeping us up all night. There was a police presence nightly from 7pm to 9pm watching out for anti social behaviour but once they had gone the teenagers do as they please. Also the aprtments are sadly lacking air conditioning making them unbearingly hot and stuffy. We were also terrified our 2 year old son would stand on one of the chairs and get over the balcony. We did ask to move rooms on the 3rd night and staff were very accomodating, they moved us to a quiter room on the back of the apartment block with limited sea view but it was smaller and didnt have the same appeal so we returned to the original. We ended up checking out 2 days early due to the intolerable noise and heat.
The Oasis cafe just down the promenade is very popular with locals and provided a lovely bacon sarney and cuppa in the mornings at a very reasonable price, also the blue crush bar below the apartments is very popular serving very good food and drink.
Overall the apartments are modern, clean and well equipped but to get a 5 star they need air con, wifi and need to do something regarding the anti social behaviour.
