Just got back from a week there with my girlfriend. We paid very little and so I did not expect much. I am happy to say that there was little that was wrong with the apartments.
The kitchen, while basic, was typical for budget acommodation. The living room is quite large. The bedroom was fine.
The only weak point with our apartment was the plumbing. The hot water ran out half way through a shower. So, one person always had to put up with cold water if they wanted to shower shortly after the first person. When the hot water did work, it reached a high temperature a bit too quickly and I kept burning myself!
The hotel staff are very helpful. I regularly asked reception to book taxis, make telephone calls and they told me where I could find the restaurants I was looking for. The cleaning lady was very good. On one occasion when I didn't get round to washing up, I came back to the room to find that she had done it for me! They do not do this at many other budget apartments.
The location of the hotel has advantages and disadvantages. It is on a busy dual carriageway, so you have to go over a rather ugly bridge to get to most places. There is only shop that is particularly nearby. All the local restaurants are similar and average in quality, so you need a taxi to find a bit of variety. On the plus side, there is a bus stop nearby and once you have crossed the bridge, a rather nice beach is a hundred metres away and you can do a long walk on a good path along the water's edge.
If you are looking for a cheap beaching holiday and you don't mind taking taxis and buses on the few occasions that you feel adventurous, you can't do much better than the Green Ocean.
