Me and my girlfriend (both in early 20's) stayed here between 16/09/12 and 26/09/12 and really enjoyed it!! The hotel is great value for money, its obviously not really posh and modern but for a three star its very well kept, clean, tidy and the room we had was very nice.
The pool was very nice and clean and the pool bar was reasonably priced. The staff were very pleasant and friendly, as were all of the hotel reception staff who helped us with directions many times!
There is also a mini-market and a restaurant on the hotel complex along with tennis courts, and a smaller pool. The hotel was around a 5-10 minute walk from the beach and the strip where all the restaurants, bars and shops are, and its about 10-15 minute walk the other direction to the old town and a supermarket which is huge and very well priced if you are self catering.
Overall it was a brilliant hotel and a very nice place, lots to do for all ages, its not on the coast but that's why its well priced but its location is still very good.
The only negatives in our experience were that the corridors outside of our room were quite big and echoed a lot, when people came home early in the morning, or when the maids were cleaning rooms early then the shouts and bangs did wake us up and were a bit annoying.
We stayed in a "Superior Studio Apartment" which was a really good size and a nice room, we also requested a balcony for a pool view (as other reviews recommended because other views are mostly other buildings). For eating out we would also definatly recommend an Italian restaurant at the end of the strip called "Bulli & Pupe" we ate there a lot, and also a place called Hollywood.
We would definatly go back to this hotel. Hope it helps!!
