No air conditioning!
Just back after a week in alfagar 1 apartments. Had an absolute ball and we were heartbroken to be leaving!!
Our apartment was very close to the bar, playground, and pools which was fantastic for us.
The bar staff are very hard working and very pleasant. The food at the bar is lovely, especially the lasagne and the pork steak!
The playground is perfect for all ages, you can see it from the bar aswell (it's right next to it) which is great if you want to have a drink you can watch the kids easily. There are games for the kids to play aswell; air hockey, foosball, pool etc. Theres entertainment every night which to be honest isn't great but the kids love it!
At the hotel there are pools with slides etc. but we didn't use those ones. We used the ones beside us which were perfect, two kids pools and one deeper pool. The pool area is spotless and no fights for sun beds.
The shop is well stocked with everything you will need and is reasonably priced.
The hotel organised our trip to zoomarine, €30 for taxi there and back which is reasonable. We paid for everything at the reception, tickets and taxi. We also went to fiesa the sand world, the hotel again organised the taxi and we got tickets on entry, it was well worth the visit but really you only need an hour there, max 1.5hrs.
Alfagar is only a short walk to the new town strip and a little bit further to old town. You could stroll in and taxi back or vice versa. It's a lovely area, most important part for us was the security, they patrolled the area in a mini bus and by walking around, they were not invasive whatsoever and it was a nice comfort.
The beds were extremely comfortable, there's plenty wardrobe space and plenty of crockery and cutlery, no mugs though, just little tea cups. Note that you must put on timer to turn on the oven!!
The apartments are spotless as are the footpaths, the stairwells and hallways, we noted the cleaning staff mopping the tiled walkways in the mornings.
