We visited these apartments for the last 2 weeks of August, myself, husband, boys of 11 & 14 and my parents. We each had a 1 bed apartment next door to each other and were fortunate to have a lovely pool view.
The transfer time from airport is just over the hour. The Thomson reps are very impersonal, when greeted at airport, they never asked your name, just asked where you were staying & gave you a coach number. Similar on return, no rep on bus, driver just checked your flight number to make sure you were on right bus.
The location of the Safari Park is excellent. A Spar shop just outside the entrance & numerous other shops, bars, restaurants within 5-10 minute walk, although not typically spanish.My Dads favourite was the Kings Head as the desserts were Spotted Dick , Syrup sponge etc all served with custard! The apartments are a good size and well cleaned, although the furniture is showing its age & could be replaced. It is a big complex with about 600 rooms. There were loads of sunbeds & you never had a problem getting them after 9.30. The only drawback is they were positioned very close together with hardly any room to get to the pool. The crazy golf was excellent, escpecially as free. Tended to play most nights after meal ( we went self catering so can't comment on hotel food). The entertainment was similar to what you get everywhere & as very busy with lots of small children running around we tended to avoid.
We visited the La Reserva waterpark twice. It opens at 10.30-5.30. Buy your ticket the day before as we wasted an hour the first time queuing to buy the tickets at the Clubhouse.Food is included in 20Euro price, you get breakfast food until 12.30, then meats,pasta,salads etc until 3pm, then until close it's tea & cake, so you tend to spend all day eating! Only 2 slides though so could be improved for older children with a few more.
Excellent bus service available, used to visit the Caves of Drach. Took about 20 mins & cost 1.65 Euro each way. Be aware they only let you enter the Caves on the hour. We arrived at entrance just after 12 and had to wait around until 1pm until they let the next group down. There must've been a good couple hundred people waiting by then so very busy & you have to keep moving, bit like a conveyor belt & you couldn't stop to fully appreciate their scale & magnificence.
Finally beware of the Doctor that visits the Hotel.They advertise as being there twice a day, but this is a bit erratic. My son had the usual ear infection (he's prone to them!). Doctor didn't turn up but reception advised that he was on his way as they'd called him in to see someone & I could catch him. Got prescription for antibiotics (which cost 30Euros) but the doctor didn't tell me before being seen that he would charge 100Euros just to see you. A bill was left at reception for us when we checked out!
An excellent family resort with a lovely beach. Accomodation is fantastic if you don't mind it big & busy.
