Reviewed 4 August 2014

Apartment was adequate, it is listed as a 2 star and that is what you get, beds very hard and uncomfortable as is the seating in the living room. On the upside the reception chap and maids were very nice, always clean and helpful. The locations isn't the greatest, the steps down to the beach go around 70 feet and are a real pain to go back up. Would not stay in the same area again

The rooms were very clean on arrival and the apartment was much bigger than expected. We got the 3rd floor which was right outside reception excellent altogether as this is the floor you have to access to walk in and out of the complex. The rooms were cleaned every 2 days which included beds being made and new towels and loo rolls provided each time. Everyday the pool area was empty until after lunch time which was ideal for us girls. We sunbathed in silence and dipped in and out of the pool when wanted. The pool wasn't packed there were no screaming kids or noise, no fight for a sunbed just ideal for a nice relaxing time. The bar area had lovely staff, good cheap food ideal for a snack during the day with cheap cocktails. The apartments are located 2 minutes from the beach front and 2 minutes from the nightlife centre. We couldn't of been any happier. The man on reception was always friendly every morning and evening and always helped us given us advice on where to go and what things to do. He went out of his way to ensure we were having a good holiday. Best food locations by the beach. Other notes we didn't buy wifi we managed without as all bars and restaurants give free wifi. Expect the hot water in the showers to run out quickly. At first it was annoying with 5 girls in one apartment the hot water gone after the first person but gradually throughout the week it turned out to be very refreshing having a cold shower after being in the heat all day. This isn't a hotel for people who want a lively hotel experience or for a family who have kids that wants to make friends by the pool. It's not for young people who want to go wild. It was mostly all spanish speaking occupants when we stayed with only one other apartment that we came across that spoke english. However if you want a quite and safe complex this is the place for you. No partying and noise went on late at night which was ideal to come home to in the early hours as you can enjoy a good undisturbed sleep. We were a group of girls on a girls trip and all in all this hotel was in the greatest location and was a fantastic price I would defiantly 100% stay here again.

When we arrived the rooms were a lot better than expected very clean and spacious! We went there when gay pride was on so the noise at night was to be expected anyway even though it didn't last long once everyone crashed out. The only problem we had there really was the hot water for showers which lasted a few minutes but that may also be because we went during the very busy period of pride. Also sitting on the balcony watching drunk people try to get into their rooms without their key or falling in the pool is very entertaining!

Stopped here for one week. We arrived at night and there was no light up sign so it took us about 15 mins to work out where it was, ended up that we over heard a conversation that we knew where it was.

There was no one on reception as they are only open a few hours a day, found out that the key was in the door by a poster that had be placed up on the wall.

The apartment was a good size and clean. I have never stopped in an apartment before or self catering and it was better then I had expected. Easy access to the pool, and nice little bar/cafe with friendly staff. Good distance away from beach and about a 10-15min walk to the Yumbo centre (gay part) which was fine for us, or it was only 4 euros in taxi. It was only 2mins away from the straight town/clubbing section, but at night you could not hear any noise from around.

I found the best places to eat was down by the beach very very good! in the other parts not so good.

We decided to get wifi in the apartment, but it was rubbish only worked well about 1am when everyone was out clubbing, so I would not bother with it and go to a good bar/restaurant to get a good wifi connection.

Staying here 2 years ago and it was great on the 7th floor. This time I was allocated the 5th floor which is a bit low to have the sea views. They reallocated me to the 7th floor which was great. The apartment has a big sitting room with large balcony and it is cleaned everyday. Unfortunately the beds have soft mattresses which are not good for your back at all. You have a good working kitchen if you want to cook. A nice clean apartment with sea views, located close to the beach is a great starting place for your hot hot hot holidays.
15 euro a week for safe deposit
15 euro a week for television
28 euro for 2 weeks of wireless internet which has improved quite a bit. (Now you can watch films.)

Try avoiding the Gay Pride in mid May if you don’t like noisy place and screaming teens.

Room Tip: 6th and 7th floors have great views.

Hard to find the hotel when we saw no signs. To those of you who will be traveling there as it is a green gate. Reception is only up x 2 per day for a few hours. The man at the desk are friendly and helpful. The rooms are cleaned every 3 dag.Vanskelig to get some extra things that Bath linen and diverse. We stayed in room 511. The beds are hard and are easily removable. Wake in the morning in a large curling when it is uner plastic sheet. Is little hot water so the two pieces must be frugal with water as the last man does not get a cold shower. There is no air conditioning in the room. Went well for us when we were there in May. Is there a kitchen so you can cook yourself. Is a alright pool, but a little cumbersome way there. A little shabby. Is a simple shower and toilet down to the day of departure, nb Save the towel until then;)

I stayed here for a week with my friend, having briefly lived in PDI before I knew what to expect from the resort and was thrilled to find this apartment in such a great location for just €160. I booked through booking.com who also offer free cancellation up to a certain point before you stay which was really helpful.

I read a few reviews on here before I came and was prepared for it to be a bit chavvy and noisy but I was very lucky in that I had no problems whatsoever- there were families with children there and the atmosphere was really lovely.

Room was spotless and lovely and bright, little touches like toaster and even coffee machine were lovely but I couldn't seem to get filters from anywhere (I used the foot from a clean pair of tights but that's another story)
It was a real shame as they didn't provide and cloths or tea towels so we couldn't clean the kitchen after ourselves which was frustrating- I don't expect to have to buy these things myself in a self catering apartment.

The location is FANTASTIC. Right next to the beach - (although there are a heck lot of steps so be warned)
You are in the heart of PDI with plenty of bars, nightclubs and restaurants on your doorstep - 10 minute walk to the fabulous Yumbo Centre which is a gay paradise of showbars, restaurants and nightclubs whilst still being friendly and welcoming to all.

All in all I was THRILLED with these apartments and I will definately be recommending them to my friends.
NB: go for a high up floor for lovely views and to get away from the noise of late night pool invaders ( we didn't experience this but I think we got lucky)

Or go for a ground floor for immediate access from your apartment to the pool- lovely!
