Arrived the first week of sept to major sunshine and around 32 degrees, with the locals finding it chilly!!
Came into reception and treated by two lads who got us quickly checked in. As I had stayed in Turkey before we got through the drill of paying for safety deposit box and air con very quickly.
We had a room up some stairs and along a lovely pathway full of vines and flowers looking out to the hills. The room itself then was in a little block of about five side by side.......a little terrace in the shade (which was welcome) and shall we say errr basic. Even more basic than the one I had stayed in before....
Living area, fine, sofa thing, small table, dodgy tv with a few channels and a kettle that didn't turn off. Bedroom...two beds, a wardrobe and some drawers. Oh and a window that didn't open, which was actually out to someplace we could never see as when we turned our lights on a light went on out there too. Weird.
Anyways basic it was but we are not there for the room.
Everything super close by. Beach is amazing. Take the bother to walk down abit to were the hammocks are....we had a fabulous lazy day down there, a super lunch, glass of beer and then some glorious waffles with fruit and ice cream from the restaurant behind us....if you get some food or drinks there they do not charge for the hammocks or beds.
Food, well the steaks are amazing. The closer you are to centre of own the more you pay. But we honestly paid the equivalent of £18 for both of us having garlic mushrooms, 10 oz steaks with everything going, melon, coffee, a btl of wine and a beer.....not to shabby.
Best places are The Mistral and Windy Bay. The bars etc along the sea front are nice and quiet but once you go up the side of The Mistral and up into town things get more lively.
Book some trips! Especially water sports.....so so so cheap!! We did parasailing and it was fantastic. Really well run and safe as houses.
Buy your fake goods and pay the REP for extra luggage allowance, it was £15 for an extra 5 kg....well worth it!
The hotel itself was fine, and you can use the place next door the Tropicana which was far better. Nicer pool, more craic at the bar etc. Siesta at night was dead as a door nail which suited us, coming back around 1-2am we didn't have to fight our way back to our room. We didn't eat at the hotel at all.....oh we had one lunch by the pool...it was grand, nothing special but nice service and no drama. Good thing is the siesta has two pools , the roof top one was fab with a nice breeze.
All in all a great week away, cheap as chips and no crowds of looney toons going mad! Lots of kids about and the staff are lovely.
It does what it says on the tin....
