    1) Lifts not working 2) Service in bar area was very very poor, very slow, got the feeling of being unwanted 3) Ordered a pizza, it was like a really cheap branded supermarket frozen pizza 4) Pool not open till 10am, this was ridiculous

    Location was OK, rooms were furnished OK. TV facilities very old.

    The only thing, and its not even bad is the cleaners could come from anytime from 10am - 3pm. There is no fixed time, so if your having a lay in it can be a little annoying but that's it. Perfect place

    Apartments were very big, pool was lovely, staff were so friendly and helpful and its within perfect walking distance to the strip and all bars and restaurants. Perfect distance away from the strip as its not too noisy.

    I had concerns about the area / location (didn't feel very safe) - and too far from the beach and not easy to access in general via public transport to get to shops, etc..

    The room was a great size and the hotel and pool area was clean and well managed.

Tiny TV 5 inches with bad image quality. Never been In such a terrible holiday in my life before!!!!! Very very bad

    The apartment was dated and tired and needed a good clean. Yes cutlery and kitchen items were also unclean.

    The towels were never changed until the day before we were due to come home and this was only because we asked. Also, nobody came in to clean the room while we were there.

    While the property is very spacious and clean, it looks a little tired and could do with a bit of a facelift, also the entrance is on a steep slope which is problematic when moving luggage. There is no oven in the apts

    The size of the apartments was excellent, the location wasn't too bad. The staff were very helpful and the bar food was nice especially for a poolside restaurant

    The hotel is opposite a derelict water park (but VERY quiet as a consequence!)... Didn't bother us and all amenities nearby (supermarket/bars etc)... Fair walk to beach/old town but hotel provides free shuttle bus.

    We had a top floor apartment with sea views, air-con, VERY clean, quiet.... PERFECT! The staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Whilst the hotel is located at the top of "the strip" there is a free minibus to the beach/old town.

    Nothing everything was great.

    Everything hotel was in a great location and staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. We were able to check in early and as a group of 6 we were given rooms next door to each other. Leo on reception went out of his way to sort this for us. Rooms were basic but very clean and were cleaned on a daily basis. Pool side was very comfortable and the cheese and ham toasties were to die for. Looking forward to going back next year.

    Just the noisey neighbours but like I say, they just were overexcited and quickly realised when asked politely.

    Really good value for money, we only stayed the night before meeting friends, not too far from the strip, just a short walk. We had some noisey neighbours who were having the best time at 5am but it's nothing asking them politely to quiet down didn't solve. Staff were friendly. Outside areas and pool all clean and well mantained. Ideal for a few days.

    The snack bar was basic. Only Wifi in reception. The cleaners only dressed the beds but didn't replace sheets or towels. I left something behind and emailed asking them to check but never got an answer. Walking distance to the strip but far from old town and beach.

    The pool was good and not too busy. The area was nice but still quite far from the beach and old town. Bus service was good but not too frequent. The apartment was nice and spacious. Taxi's were reasonable price but difficult to get around mid-night. Mix of families, couples and group holidays.

    it was a little cold in the day, probably, because it had not been in operation before April. Some maintenance work could be done better.

    It was a walking distance from the Russian speaking church we ministered in, from Panito Mole pastelaria, and from the 'Strip' with lots of restaurants. Parking was never a problem. Staff spoke good English.

    Most of the staff were pleasant bar one lady who was always rude and unpleasant. They also charged 50cent to call a taxi which seemed unnecessary.

    The area around the apts have ran down a bit. Montechoro park across from the apt clearly was once a hub with business but sadly now the walk through there at night is very scary with broken bottles and not a light in site. Always take the hill at night, even if with people
