The Ocean Beach Aprathotel is a very nice hotel. It is clean, has a good pool, is quite at night and has reasonable facilities. It is on a hill, but there is a good path which leads straight to the main road and beach front. Be sure to buy from the Supermarket Philipe as all the small so called supermarkets are too expensive. Spanish Style is also a good shop. The hotel is about a 10 min walk from the beach. (Avoid speaking to any touts trying to sell you something, they will waste your holiday).
The best thing about the hotel is it is very near to Aqualand a ready cool water park with rides and a Dolphin show. I recomend you buy your tickets from one of the many booths that sell tickets for tourist attractions. We picked ours up for 19 euros per adult, but the on the gate price is 23 euros. There is a free bus to the park but its only a ten / twelve minute walk so not worth catching if you are staying at this hotel. Wednesday is the busies day at Aqualand but Saturday is better as less people means less queing for rides. Take an extra towel to sit on if you don't want to pay 3.5 Euros for a sun lounger.
Breakfast is best served at the Abeerdean Steak house which has a set menu for full english starting from 2 Euros inclusive of a drink. Other restaurants ramp on the cost of drinks.
I recomend you try the Chineese all you can eat buffet for 5.80 euros if you like Chineese, but get there early. The Moonlight bar is the best place to drink, with similar prices to the UK and good coverage of all sports events.
The room we stayed in was on the fourth floor at the back of the hotel. If you want a better view may sure you ask for front of hotel and at least fourth floor. The back of hotel has a view of surrounding hills and is a bit quiter.
The rooms are very clean, have an endless supply of hot water, and great showers / baths. Our room had a kettle, but no toaster. (Not a problem thou as you have a grill in the oven). The corridors are a little dark and the lighting in the rooms is a bit dimmer than we are used to in the UK but this is not a problem. The TV needs you to put a Euro in it for an hours worth.
The hotel entertainment seemed ok but i went out most nights so did not realy sample it.
I would stay here again as this was much better than the Orlando Hotel i stayed in, in 2004, which was very noisey and had a rubbish shower. This hotel is good value for money.
