We travelled back in July for 2 weeks staying at the unfinished complex (we knew the complex was not finished) this did not bother us as we travelled as a couple and went out every day.
The complex itself is great for young families with children, although for me it would be too over crowded in high season. The apartments have all you need for a self catering holiday ( we booked a private apartment) not all inclusive, I don't think the AI option would suit everyone as they do not have many options?
The location right on a safe clean beach is excellent (Flamingo Beach) it's a shame the beach bar and sun beds have been moved/removed, I don't understand why but I believe it's the council !
You are nice 10 minute walk to the ferry and a small commercial centre and 5 mins further you come to the main resort of Playa Blanca with its usual shops, bars and eating places (don't expect to be raving all night) as it's a quite area that closes down around midnight (July 2014) with the exception of a couple of places.
There are plenty of good places to eat along the sea front, all fairly similar with a decent view
It's worth getting a car or scooter so you can visit the other resorts and beaches.
Overall it's a nice place to visit for a week or so, this is our second visit in the past 12 months so we won't be going back for a while. ( off to Corfu next week)
