We arrived on a Tuesday, all was fairly simple. The apartments are quite easy to find, you have to walk through the pool area which is a nice meeting point to get to know the guests. Apartment as a whole looked quite shabby, TAKE a hairdryer. Nothing special but you get used to it after a few days. No air-con so expect to be hot, hot, hot if you're in direct sunlight.
Pool open till 8pm, can get quite busy so grab a space if you're intending to stay all day.
Entertainment - Paul at the bar is excellent to get everyone around laughing and joking with his 'international knock-back quiz.' He says a question from the top of his head, you yell YO! All fun and games and a few shots!
Take the A1 bus to Morgan for the sunday market or walk to the end of the beach in Peurto Rico and follow the path to another beach (about 15mins walk) for another day trip out. Go on a whale/ dolphin trip for 30euros we were lucky, we saw dolphins. Buy a lounger on the beach for 6euros all day. Visit the Irish bar, Durty Nellys for some entertainment and Karaoke and walk to the town for some 'I don't wanna remember' night life.
All in all, this was an ok trip. If you wanna relax and do abit of walking then this is the place for you. The apartments are clean, don't feed the cats and the staff are friendly except when we left at 3am, there was no one around so make sure you get your passport back the night before, if transfers are at a dodgy time. Hope this helps! Oh and the apartment is up the top of the hill BUT taxi is like 3 euros so its really simple. Ask at reception they'll order you a taxi. And yes it may be dated but for the price, its not to bad for what you get. The pool area is clean and once you're burnt, nothing matters!! Lastly, maids clean your room everyday and fresh linen and towels, they even did our dishes - how nice :)
