The apartment block (ugly, 1960s) is right on the white sandy beach of Madiera Beach in Treasure Island. Masses of free parking at the resort; we hired a huge 4 x 4 and it easily slid into the big spaces provided! Initial impression was of a rather dated resort, dingy reception area, but our welcome was pleasant enough. Apparently RCI has "messed up" our booking. We had booked a THREE bed apartment and what we got was 2 x 1 bedroom adjoining apartments, each with a sofa bed in their respective sitting rooms. Actually this worked for us as our party comprised my husband and myself, our 23 year old son and his 23yrs old friend, so the boys were happy to share a bedroom of two large double beds. However this arrangement would not have been any use to a family with young children.
The apartments vary. The boys` apartment was very shabby and dated; rather dark, with no balcony and a microscopic kitchen are with just a small fridge and a kettle. The 2 x double bed bedroom they shared was fine, if a bit old fashioned, and the bathroom was dated. Our apartment was better, bigger, with a bright sitting room with flat screen TV (boys had an ancient TV) and a balcony. Furniture in our apartment was comfy although not new looking. Ample glasses, plates etc. Dish washer (powder provided), good sized fridge. Cooker and microwave. Air conditioning was good in both apartments.
The views of sunsets from the larger apartment were fantastic. Do ring and check you have a sea-facing apartment before you book.
The lift was a bit antique - they started re doing this as we left and I`m assuming they will brighten up the reception area at the same time!
Outside is a heated, clean swimming pool and a fantastic uber-warm jacuzzi. There are BBQs for your use which was a nice touch. Everything is clean and well cared for.
The beach is literally `on site`. Bring your buckets and spades!
