The apartment block itself had no facilities other than a pool and a paddling pool, not even a bar or snack bar. There was a bar between the two pools but this was closed and appeared to have been closed for some time. This posed no problem for us as we could bring our own food & drink from the apartment and having 2 x children probably saved us a few quid overall.
Although self catering you can still eat in the hotel restaurant for breakfst & evening meal, it's good value, half-price for kids, and it's buffet / eat as much as you like. However it seemed a pity to miss out on the many bars & restaurants in the resort which were also very good value.
The brochure states that the apartment block is 'next door'to the hotel where all the facilities are on hand. It's not really next door, more like 'down the hill', and linked by a flight of steps. Don't underestimate the effort involved in getting back up to the apartments, it was a killer - particularly in the high temperatures and humidity levels. If you're generally unfit, overweight or have a push-chair give it some thought. Getting to the town is further down the hill, which means an even harder walk back. We sometimes had a taxi back to the apartment block from the town costing abount 2.5 Euro's.
Carrying provisions from the local mini-markets or supermarket, like drinking water, takes some effort.
The apartment block during our stay was 'multi-national' Brits representing only about 20%. Lots of Germans, Spanish & Portugese.
Entertainment - not that we bother but what we saw was pretty dire. I think Germans are easily pleased. Being multi-national everything is relayed in 4 or 5 languages, pretty boring.
Overall a good place to stay, nice views, no rowdiness, clean accommodation
