We had read all the reviews on this hotel so roughly knew what we were getting.
The hotel and the bar are separate, the hotel has no restaurant facilities so all food is cooked in the outside poolside bar. It's pretty much everything and "chips" with cooked English breakfast as you would expect.
There are various food nights, BBQ, Fish, Chips and beer, Spag Bol and beer, Curry and beer etc etc etc
The facilities are pretty basic but, as above, you get what you pay for and as long as you know what you are getting this place is perfect.
Everything is clean, the rooms are big (a bit old fashioned and in need of a facelift but perfectly adequate) and the balcony is huge (biggest and best I've ever been on) with sun beds, table and 4 chairs. There were no bugs or other creepy crawlies, no mould or mildew and there was actually soap in the bathroom, washing up liquid and cleaning cloths in the kitchen. Have been in other self catering apartments that had a tea towel but no washing cloths or liquid!
It also has a laundry area where you can use the machine for €5, then either dry on an airer or in a drier and reception has an iron that you can use free of charge.
The pool area is clean and very rarely crowded and there was NEVER a time when we didn't get a sunbed. The only downside to the pool is that it is open to the public, so at about 5pm it starts to fill up with very noisy locals who scream and shout so loud that you can hear them in your room even though it is as far from the pool as can be!!
This is the second time we have been to Amadores and would recommend the area to anyone, there are plenty of bars and restaurants on the beach or it's a 5 min cab ride to Europa centre or 10 mins to Puerto Rico where there are dozens more. Only thing is that you are very badly badgered to enter every eating/drinking place you pass.
I would recommend the Terraza and as long as you are aware of what you are getting and don't expect entertainment and restaurant quality food then you can't go wrong here.
