Just come back from a few days with the girls. We stayed in a studio apartment which was fabulous....spitting distance from the pool, the beach and a short walk to the marina. Staff friendly and helpful, food and drink good value for money, very clean..just perfect!

Room Tip: We were a short distance from the pool so very quiet

The food in the Casbah restaurant was really good, well flavoured, and sensible portion sizes. It looks like a pool bar café but the evening meals were excellent, and good value for money too! It's recommended to book in the evenings as it can get very busy.

We stayed 3 nights after being shifted from the Royal Oasis at Pueblo Quinta where we had originally made our booking. We were not quite sure what to expect as we had not researched this accommodation. Thankfully we were given an Elite apartment E2 in the Royal Oasis block which overlooked the pool and had a sunny balcony. There was a bit of road noise from the street outside and from the entertainment at the pool until at least 10.30 pm on 2 out of 3 nights. Wifi access was available from the room and free since we were in an Elite refurbished apartment. The unit was a good size although the kitchen unit is tiny however it was fitted out with good quality fittings. Very clean and one of the best range of English TV channels.

The hotel was spotlessly clean, apartments were spacious, excellent staff who were all very attentive and on hand for everything needed, especially Zoe. Restaurant food was outstanding and the poolside entertainment was very good. We will return.

Nice place near the sea - the bar called Casbah in this resort was very nice too. Good food but portions were too big. Hotel area was nice and clean. Only problem was noisy and drunken Brittish people during our last nite.
Inside pool. minigolf etc inside the resort :)

Let me first put things straight, this is a clean well kept hotel in a great location, but I feel you should know a few things which let it down. First is the ridiculously late check in time of 4pm and check out at 9am, We turned up at 2pm and we checked in, then they said come back at 4pm. Fine we thought and went for a drink and came back at 4pm. Then they said the room wasn't ready and wait 5 minuteswhile they found out whether the room was ready. 10 minutes later they said the room was not ready and they would give us a different room. Then they said they couldn't give us another room and they would give us a free drink. Then the manager came over and said they would let the bar know they were giving us a free drink, but because it was an American company we could not have a beer, just a coffee. Strange because I would have thought it would be company policy to have the room ready on time. Anyway we got to the bar and they had not let them know and when we asked for a free coffee the girl at the bar gave us a funny look. When we finally got to the room we found it quite pleasant until we turned the air conditioning on which smelt a bit fishy.The other thing which made me uncomfortable was the fact that the people at reception kept commenting on our short stay of 1 night. Surely if we want to stay for 1 night that is our choice and if they don't want people for short stays they should set a minimum stay. Overall I found the staff to be a stuck up fake and scripted, like they had been trained by some American training package. I can see straight through this, but I am sure it is adequate by some peoples standards.

Room Tip: Be wary of the check in and check out times
