Genuinely cannot fault this place! Myself and 4 friends booked through travel republic and were amazed at the deal we got. I personally found the location brilliant - There was a shop at the top of the road, and the Continente shopping centre was a 10 minute walk away! The strip was roughly 10 minutes in the opposite direction, if you walked through a dirt track, and sometimes we also walked back at night, but if you get a taxi, it is roughly €4-5! If you say the strip/beach is too far away then you're just lazy. The hospital is also pretty close by too (5 - 10 minute drive). On the ground floor we had a good sized kitchen, a small toilet, lounge/dining room, and a pretty large balcony which easily sat all 5 of us. We had the view of the sea which I had personally wanted, but had not requested! There was also air conditioning in the lounge and satellite TV. Upstairs we had a massive bathroom that was bigger than the bedrooms, and included a shower cubicle, which was kind of broken, but I just held the shower head instead. There was a double sink, a bath which also had a shower in it, a bidet and of course a toilet! The master bedroom had a double bed and we took the fold out bed from the lounge up to the bedroom and there was still plenty of space and the twin bedroom was a brilliant size as well! The grounds of the hotel were also lovely and had a good sized pool, with not very many sunbeds, but we were always able to find 5, so can't complain there, and also a baby pool. There was a games room too, which we never used. The WiFi was only a euro per hour, which ran on for like an hour and a half. The hotel restaurant was reasonably priced, but we only ate there once for lunch. The staff were lovely and very helpful. Overall a brilliant stay and I will definitely be back!
