We stayed here from the 19th - 26th sept for a fantastic week. Like others, we read the reviews and a bit worried about which block we would get, for us we got block D. We never eat at the hotel, so we can't comment on it, enjoyed happy hour (4-5pm) Buy One Get One Free!! Unfortunately some guests got rat legged and cleared the pool area (we're not talking about 18+ yr olds getting wasted, people old enough to know better!). The apartment was clean and spacious for 2 adults, if you have kids, might be a bit small. We did look at the Block B and the apts were smaller than ours, little natural light and the smell from the bins!!!!
The beds were a bit hard, felt the springs digging in. Solved the issue by using the blankets and laying them under the bottom sheet..
We spoke to other guests, especially those in B Block, all came with Jet2 holidays, not to say this has anything to do with Jet2, more with the hotel owners. If you book direct you get the better apts in C,D or E is what we found. So our advice is to book direct.
The location was excellent, no more that 100 meters from the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. The staff were all friendly and helpful at all times, can easily say we will be back next year.
Word of warning though... When booking make it well in advance, this hotel gets booked up very quickly, also with many of the UK flights not leaving til after 8pm book an extra night so you can keep your apartment for that day, as you have to be out by 12noon and they don't have anywhere to store your luggage or any changing/shower rooms to use either. If they do have any rooms left, its 10 euros for an extended checkout but, you will be taking a chance..
