The Maralvor was bleak in as much as the pool area was very small, snack bars were not open during the two weeks of our stay. The nearest supermarket was 35 minutes away, there had been a large supermarket nearer the apartments but this was closed apparently for refurbishment but there was no sign of any work going on.
The rooms were clean but very dated.
The reception was open only certain times during the two weeks

We arrived at 2140 hours, reception closed. Fortunately I had taken my mobile with me so was able to telephone number on reception door. At 2230 a man came from the Dunas hotel with our key. My sister and I had to stand in the street and it was dark.
Apartment very spacious albeit dated, very clean. Light on our balcony and rear terrace not working, reported to reception the following morning. Not repaired during our stay. The washing machine didn't work but as we didn't expect to have one we didn't report to reception as we felt that if they didn't repair lights we really wouldn't expect them to repair w/machine.
Reception was closed more often than open. The cafeteria/ snack bar stayed closed for the duration of our holiday. Lots of disapointed holidaymakers.
Location not good, as it was further from the beach than we expected.
At the weekends Sunday in particular we were overrun with children, just dropped off to use pool for the day. They were not staying at the apartments.
I would rate these apartments 3/4 due to size and cleanliness.

Appartment was really nice and big. we had a problem with the hot water and gas, but when reported to reception it was fixed within 10 minutes.

The pool area was always quiet as we passed by to go into town, which was a 15 min walk.

Great place to stay to relax during the day at the pool and off into town at night.

Would stay again, but Sept 2009 I have booked Alvormar as its nearer the town

We stayed for a week in apartment 205, which had 2 bedrooms.
The main bedroom was a good size with patio doors onto the balcony. The second bedroom was considerably smaller and didn't have any natural light, only a small long window that let light in from the bathroom. The main living area was large with two sofas, a coffee table, huge dresser and table & chairs. The kitchen was big enough for an additional table and chairs. The bathroom was also quite big for an apartment with sower over the bath, basin, loo and bidet and had lots of storage. The balcony outside overlooked the pool area and was a decent size - big enough for a table and chairs and sunloungers.

The place was very, very clean, albeit somewhat dated. It could really do with a bit of modernisation - the window in the main bedroom had two cracks in it, some of the towels were a bit threadbare and several items of crockery in the kitchen were chipped.

There's a snack bar where you check in but it's only open 9-7 and not at all after the end of October. The pool and communal areas are kept immaculate. It's a good 15-20 stroll to the harbour and although you could walk to the beach from here (I'd guess 20-25mins) it's much easier in the car as it's literally a 3/4 min ride.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and at just under
