just back from these apartments and have to say id never go back or recommend them to anyone , the room smelled of mould , the floors were dirty and the towels were never changed . the doors to the room had to be banged for them to be closed , the place was full of teenagers who came home at 4 and 5 in the morning screaming and shouting and banning the doors shut and not a word said to them , the pool in the morning was taken over by them so you couldnt even relax there ,the only good thing i have to say about this place is thatthe girls at reception were very nice , rant over

Awful. Not even basic. Avoid at all costs. Dirty , noisy smelly. Beds rock hard. Sheets grey .Wardrobe doors broken.Blankets in wardrobe were dirty. No kettle or any basic facilities. Pool area was disgusting. Wouldn't put my dog in these apartments. Thankfully we were only there for 5 days .Only good thing it was close to beach

I came here for my friend's hen do - now let me point out we are a more mature hen group. The decor took me back in time and these apartments certainly show signs of age. However, the location is spot on (downhill to the beach and up hill to the strip) but both easily reachable. The pool is small here with limited beds, that said I would recommend the beach - sun beds are 7.50 EURO but there is table service and a selection of places to eat/drink which you don't get if you stay poolside or you'd have to walk down as the apartments only offer a limited food menu. The communal areas have clearly had some investment and I do think the apartments do to, the decor could be lived with but in my apartment (10) the bath clearly needed replacing and at best some repairs were shoddy DIY, the wardrobe was also musty smelling and we chose not to use it for our 2 night stay. But the apartments/sheets/towels were all clean and that to me is VERY important. Overall I actually would stay here again but you do need to manage your expectations here, and if you do that then you'll enjoy your stay.

All that i can say is that the staff are friendly and the appartments are close to beach ..very dated ..no kettle no toaster ..no microwave ..pool small and only a handful of loungers available ..these appts are at the bottom of a hill so anybody with a disibility would stuggle walking up this .i would say these are geared up for stags and hens .its quite noisey .it it wasnt the cockrell or the seagulls it was the pneumatic drill .we used the pool and facilities in the oura view appts over the road these were lovely .

We stayed here for the long bank holiday weekend. Very clean, great area for the beach and all the bars shops and restaurants were all just minutes walk away from our apartment.
Will return very soon I think.

The location is amazing, two minutes from beach and the strip. Staff were friendly and helpful! Rooms were dated but clean and perfect for a place to pop in and out to change and go out again!
Downside would be the beds, awful! So losing 1 star! They really were so uncomfortable and two single beds pushed together !
Recommend this hotel for people who are out and about on holiday and not needing to stay in the hotel much as it's very basic but suited us perfectly !
FYI- 60c a pop if you want them to call a taxi also but most things in walking distance anyway!
We didn't go into the pool because we were so close to the beach, we went there instead and it seemed like the beach was sunnier anyway !
