                              Apartments were confortable

                              Pool area badly designed , kitchen layout poor ,

                              The apartment and location were ok. Alot of Tourists. Wasnt much culture. A little cheesy. Better suited for families with young kids.

                              We had a bathroom that was for disabled people. So the shower was a handheld, so water got all over the floor. Very annoying. Also we couldn't figure out the sofabed. Beds were very uncomfortable. Wouldnt really say it accommodates 4 people. The manager was also quite rude when I approached him about our bathroom. I would not go back to this hotel.

                              The hotel was very clean.

                              When we arrived they had changed our room type without an apology and basically said we can stay in a different room or find somewhere else. This was absolutely disgusting in my view. Secondly, we tried to order some food in the bar and we waited an hour before they told us our order had been lost and it would be at least another 30 mins. Again no apology. Basically the whole hotel was completely under staffed and mismanaged.

                              The one bed apartment had a very spacious bedroom and sitting room and plenty of storage which I liked. It also had a washing machine in the apartment which was very convenient. It was away from the 'strip' there was no noise during the night.

                              I didnt like the fact that there were only about 20 umrellas at the poolside so not every pair of beds would have one. This put me off going to the pool and I went to the beach instead

                              Apartments were stunning - masive rooms for very good prices.

                              Restaurant could be improved, but bar was amazing.

                              Lovely spacious building and accommodation, beautiful pool.

                              Falsely advertised wifi as being free in public areas when it is not. Breakfast was disappointing.

                              Attention of personnel

                              All facilities like gym, swimming pool, breakfast are for extra charge even the hotel has 4 stars and one would expect to have abovementioned facilities for free.

                              We found the apartment clean and spacious. The pool area was nice.

                              We requested a kettle/hairdryer/shaving light to be repaired but had no assistance on these matters at all. The bar was not very inviting and on one visit the barman informed me he had no vodka I could not believe that he could not run anywhere and get vodka

                              Fantastic location and lovely hotel. Staff helpful but some confusion at times. Rooms were well equipped. Range of beauty treatments were excellent and the therapist was great. Highly recommended.

                              We were woken to work men in the morning as there was still some on going work. We were told breakfast was supposed to be served until 10:30am but the first morning it had finished by 10am. Could benefit with having more than one beauty therapist. Spa was not well advertised. Jacuzzi was only complimentary if you had a beauty treatment, otherwise it was 8 euros/day which was still a good price considering. Sauna was not working and no staff were at hand. There was no kettle in room. Rooms were serviced but towels were not replaced and toilet paper was not re-stocked.

                              Just spacious rooms and quiet.

                              Stuff very unfriendly, for gym u have to pay extra which doesn't make sense if u r hotel guest.

                              Excellent hotel highly recommended. Everything looks brand new with lovely rooms

                              Only one disappointing point: Advertised as having free wifi but it's not it's 3 euro for half hour and awkward to organise.

                              Very nice spacious apartments. Convenient to both the old town and the strip.

                              Bed was very unconfortable

                              The only thing missing was an iron as it had everything else ie washing machine dishwasher microwave toaster etc, also somewhere to have a shower after check out as we had a late night flight and had been out the apartment from mid day.

                              No Info pack as the management has changed and they are making a new pack, so not able to see what the hotel offered ie spa, restaurant etc,

                              The apartments were very big and well equipped with everything. We were only 10 mins from The Strip and about 15 from The Old Town. Big supermarket close by, perfect location. Excellent value for one week in May. Towels changed everyday. Would definitely return.
