Recent reviews

Good 7.4 From 36 reviews

Good 6.0
Overall a very mediocre property and experience. W-fi was extremely poor throughout our stay, which was compounded by the fact that I also could not get mobile phone/internet at the location either. Service/management was very slow to respond to even basic requests, for instance to fix the non-function in-room safe (which was never corrected). The property itself was very loud from early morning until sunset, with many families and children in the crowded, somewhat dingy pool area. Rates appear to be substantially inflated during the holiday season, despite no improvements (or possibly even depreciations) in the quality of facilities and services offered. I would not stay again.

The horrible apartment and a lying staff
This place deserves 1 star and not 5 star. It is a disgrace you advertise it as 5 star!! Horrible place

Great place to stay and I will be back.
Delightful apartments with full range of services. Slight hiccup with power failure and staff were totally accommodating until failure was fixed. Great swimming pool and right on the beach. Very pleasant and clean environment Very accommodating when we wanted extra days and an extra child to stay. Only downside was that the lifts sometimes didn't work but gave me extra exercise by using the stairs so that was a bonus. And the boys loved the gym. Highly recommended and I will definitely be back.

Poor 2.0
Not five star quality.
Checked into a two bedroom at midnight. Master bedroom had no sheets, pillow cases or covers. Has to stay up until 2:30 waiting for the bedding to arrive. Hotel was noisy. Guests slamming doors and shouting and running in the corridors late at night. We checked out first thing in the morning. Sheets were discoloured.
