The rooms were on the same street where residents lived reving cars and loud music most of the early evenings and nights.
The reception was open for two hours in the morning only the lady was not helpful at all, when I wanted to hire a room for a extra day owing to a late flight home she said there was none, on checking with staff I was told there was 15 rooms empty, on arrival there was a note on the reception door giving guests a telephone number to ring and then sit around until she arrived.
The pool was small and very deep not ideal for kids.

The apartments are rated as a 2* +, but these are more like 3*.

There are two supermarkets on the same street as the apartments, one directly opposite and one further down on the right hand side.

Found lots of lovely eating places. went to LOS MARINEROS restaurant at the old town harbour where you get a fantastic meal and the waiters/waitresses are very friendly. If you like steak try the chateaubriand. On average we spent 40 euros a night for the two of us. This was for starters, steaks, and alcoholic drinks (approx
