We had apartments 3-11 (3 People) and 4-9 (4 people) and on entry the 3-11 apartments looked very nice, nice sized toilet and rooms. Our apartment of 4-9 was a reasonable size as well but the bathroom was pretty basic and looked rather rundown.
The one thing you need to know about these apartments is the location is right beside the main road and if you are in the front apartments next to this, then you can expect noise, morning noon and night! We read on other review sites that an escort agency was right next to these apartments, but we did not know a night club was there as well!
The rooms we had turned out to be an ideal suntrap, in the afternoon (from around 2:30 onwards) we could sit out until around 8:00pm getting a tan. We had thought ...
of using the sun loungers, but it appears you have to pay to use them!!! Same for the TV... a complete joke you have to pay a euro an hour!! The safe in the room had a 15 Euro deposit and 18 euros for its use... it never fails to amaze me how we all pay for something that should be a standard... security of our possessions.....Read More
Friday and Saturday night you can expect to be awake from 3:00am right through till around 6:00am with volume levels so extreme that you will think you are sleeping at a major outdoor concert, and I\'m probably underplaying this.. You almost get bounced out of your bed with the force of the volume and I really think the Travel Agents should mention this in their brochure or at the time of booking that this place IS NOISY!!!!!!!
To make sleeping matters worse, the pillows supplied on each bed are a waste of time, so if you need something hard to put your head on, get some towels out because no amount of these pillows together will support your neck or your head.
Bedding was changed once, and towels only twice in the week we stayed.
Many other reviews about these apartments mention that the cookers in the rooms are a joke. I can confirm that there is more heat coming from a match than any of these cooker rings! We usually put the tiny kettle on and then waited for a full hour before the thing became hot in any way. A toaster in the room came as a surprise, but the wall socket in the kitchen area was knackered, and the only place we could plug it into was in the toilet, with the toaster sitting on the closed toilet seat! Clearly, we had to make sure nobody rushed in there to get a surprise when the toast ejected out!!!!
None of experienced any cockroaches in the apartments, and I did not see any at all when out and about either!!!! I never understand people who seem to freak about the little buggers, you can have quite a bit of fun with them if you put your mind to it.
The food around the area was all the same, pretty much dire fair with pies chips and all the other \"British Food\". How anyone can write and say that the food was excellent... well, each to their own, but I visited a lot of places there and it was all overpriced and the same.
The Tavern was just a two minute walk up the road, and internally it was dark, dingy and really could have done with a lick of paint. The food was ok, but nothing to write home about, though the fish and chips my wife ordered was rather dry to put it mildly!
Overall the holiday was interesting, but I certainly would never go back to these apartments...
