We have just returned from a weeks stay. We booked through travel soon.com, self catering, and paid £550. On arrival reception was welcoming, and initial impressions good. We were told where our bungalow was and off we went. The bungalow was nice, not huge, but clean and nicely decorated. A nice LCD tv is the lounge area, plenty of storage in the bedroom and a double shower. The showers are amazing by the way, always hot water and plenty of pressure. Once we freshend up we went for a reccy. The pool area was nice, 3 pools and plenty of sun lounges, (which are tied down so you can't move them too much). The pool bar, looks like a temporary building!! Happy hour is 4pm to 5pm so you get 2-4-1. €2.85 for a 1/3 of a pint! We had a drink and listened to conversations, as we wanted to find out where the nearest supermarket was. It was a challenge trying to find someone English. The majority of clients were Scandinavian or German. Anyway we found a couple that had been there a while, and told us the supermarket was a 10 min walk. Not the nearest then. Not when you had to buy some water, cans, drinks etc.. Ie heavy items! The shopping precinct is ok, there is a very nice steak house there. There is a small shop in the hotel but it is expensive and choice is limited. Talking of food, the facility does have a buffet restaurant. €6 for breakfast and lunch, and €12 for dinner. Breakfast is ok, boiled eggs, or fried or scrambled, but not all at the same time. Bacon everyday, some sort of sausages bread, jam, cereal and a poor selection of fruit. One day I had tinned pineapple!! But for €6 it's ok I guess. We only ate once in the evening, and there was 2 types of meat and fish, potatoes and salad. Now the bed is a stiff cheap mattress you can feel the springs through! And not enough pillows. Pool sun loungers are ok, but buy a lilo. The beach is great and a must visit. A complementary bus runs frequently, but the walk is nice too. It's 2km and takes about 30 mins. Just follow the dry canal. Unfortunately, we both had a tummy bug after 4 days so the latter part of our holiday was marred by sickness. Overall, a nice quiet resort, and great value. Just needs comfier beds and a nearer supermarket. Oh and if you don't mind being in the minority bring British then cool.
