I have visited Bitez 6 times - twice in 2010 because it is an amazing place and I couldn't recommend it highly enough. However please don't stay in the Romantik Apartments - I have stayed there previously and really enjoyed it - however when I returned in August I found it was under new management and not a patch on before. They now claim that it is a hotel and not an apartment - this basically means they have just taken the hob and the cutlery out of the apartment. When you arrive at the hotel you will also be met by a sign that you are not allowed bring and food or drink in from outside the complex - this means that you are suppose to buy bottled water off them for four times the price - we used to sneak stuff in and out - it was crazy.
Also I wasn't too impressed by the buffet breakfast - the table was covered in ants!!. We were there for two weeks and for a few days we got served breakfast - we finally realised that this was because there was travel agents coming to view the property.
The apartments are basic but are clean and fit the purpose. They also have a lovely balcony. They are also cleaned daily which was good
Our friend decided to join us for our second week - which caused major problems - they wanted to charge us double for her to sleep on a matress in our room!!
The only room with air con is the bedroom and because we were there during a heat wave - it really was the only room we could use.
When our friend arrived the staff were quiet taken by her white skin and blonde hair - so much so that one of the bar staff entered our room during the day and wrote I love you with flowers on the couch - clearly this made us nervous and we were three girls alone!!!!
There was no way we ate in the complex at night as there was no atmosphere and after the breakfast ants we were not risking it
I would really advise staying in the mandarin gardens just accross the road from the romantik - they are by far superior to the romantik and are usually around the same price. The two properties used to be run by the same management
The pool area was lovely but the manager used to have staff meetings next to the pool - it was really uncomfortable looking at people being roared at while on holidays
I really could go on and on about all the problems that we had while staying here but I would just advise to avoid there apartments but still to visit Bitez and it is amazing and really enjoyable
The Irish people we met here really mad our holidays ;-)
