The pool area is not that large, although it was never overly busy and you could always get a sunbed. The beautiful beach is just across a small road, as is the promenade to stroll into the town and restaurants (just 5 minutes away).
During the week we were there, there was a problem with the hot water in the apartments as it was running out by about 5 o'clock in the evening- so you needed to have an early shower unless you didn't mind a cold one.
Apparantly this had not been a problem until our week.
Overall we would definitely return to the apartments and would recommend them to any family.

Plain but spacious. Loads of room for 2 in a 1-bedroom apt. Our balcony overlooked a building site so the view was atrocious but it was inactive so at least it was quiet. There is a lot of noise in the apartment building though, mainly furniture scraping. I don

We did have a problem with our room and asked to be changed and after much negotiating, with the bar girl/supervisor translating we resolved the problem satisfactorily.
The apartments are spacious and basic and will serve you well enough for a self catering holiday as long as you are intending to eat out each night. If you are intending to cook using the apartment facilities beware the ovens are very hit or miss, mainly miss, and the utensils have seen better days, tho crocks knives etc o.k. If you are cooking definitely take your own frying pan!! Bedrooms are large and twin bedded with plenty of cupboard space and drawers.
The rooms are cleaned regularly and towels changed frequently enough. Some rooms had problems with ants tho we did not.
The location of the Ros Apts cannot be faulted. They are sited opposite the towns second beach at one end of the promenade and the top floor Apts have lovely views, between the Orquida Hotel and Marsol Apts and all have nice balconies. All Apts face toward the sea except the one bedded apts on the ground floor.
When we arrived this year apartments are being built on land at the rear of the Ros Apts so the view from those apartments are of a nice building site, tho no work was carried out whilst we were there.
At one end of the Apts is the pool area which is not overly large, but cleaned daily, and you will have to get up early to book your sunbed using a towel. This is the quieter end, rooms ending 04-06. At the other end is the bar and games room so rooms ending 01-03 will be affected by noise from these areas, and it can be loud!
There is no entertainment but people do sit outside drinking and if in large groups it can be drunkenly noisy. The bar is meant to close at 0130ish but Cesar,the evening barman/supervisor, will stay open longer when the drink is flowing. If you are up that end try to get a top floor Apt.
The Apartments do suffer from noise generally from the road in front esp through the night from coach drops at this location, and going to the Marsol and Riomar, street sweepers, rubbish carts, cars and mopeds,although the last two seem to have lessened from last year perhaps due to the road humps that have been introduced. You will also have noise from the Orquida Hotel which is also opposite consisting of entertainment but this as all resort entertainment stops at midnight.
A shortish walk up the road are two supermarkets the Eroski which is largish and popular with the locals and opposite is a Spar. Both sell everything you would need and there are plenty of others throughout the resort.
Wouldn't stay here again due to the noise but cannot fault the location, rooms, cleanliness or staff. So if you can sleep through noise this could be an ideal base for you, we are going to find somewhere quieter.
