The location is a bit far from the sea but with a steady walk you can be there in 10-15 mins, the hotel staff are very friendly and cannot do enough for you. When you get in the swing of it! it is good fun to enjoy you need to take part.
The evening entertainment is mainly organised in-house with the usual mini disco and bingo followed by things such as Mr & Mrs, Mr Cristina and Crazy Games. These were always great fun. There were 2 professional shows during our stay - an Abba tribute band (which we never saw) and a Beatles tribute band - The Comrades - who were brilliant and a definite must see if you are around when they appear. Becky runs the kids club which runs 11am-1pm and 3pm-5pm for ages 4-11years. My daughter went several times especially in the afternoons when it got very hot and thoroughly enjoyed it each time. Daytimes activities are organised by Pascalle and include water polo, killer darts, shuffleboard, killer pool, rifle shooting (for over 16s only) etc and there always seemed to be a large take up for these things.
There is a restaurant on-site and it is very reasonably priced. We ate here a couple of times and had take-out a couple of times. Well worth a visit. The bar staff were great and they even joined in the karaoke.
The rooms are basic but very clean. Cleaner came 7 days out of our 10 day stay. We were given a small 2 bed apartment which was more than adequate for our needs. The balcony was huge and had the sun all day until about 4.30pm but by that time we were grateful for the shade. We were located alongside the restaurant and it was quiet, just what we had requested. The rooms alongside the pool area would get a lot of noise on an evening but generally this quietened down at 1am when the bar closed.
The hotel does get a lot of repeat guests some who have been every year for the last 6 or 7 years. We did read reports before we went that these guests get preferential treatment - better rooms, larger measures, wins on the bingo, I have to say that we never witnessed any of this sort of treatment and everyone was treated the same.
The walk into the main shopping area and the beach is about 10 minutes at a leisurely holiday stroll down a slight hill.
Free Wi-Fi is provided in the reception area.
My only gripe would be the sunbed situation. There weren't enough beds for the amount of guests and the towel runners were out in force from as early as 7am reserving beds. We even witnessed towels being left on an evening. We aren't early risers so often went to the beach in the morning and then back to the pool on an afternoon when we could usually get a bed.
Overall, we had a great holiday here yet again. My daughter asked on the coach going home if we could go again next year. Says it all in my opinion.
The rooms were spotless & comfortable with plenty of storage space as was the kitchen area. The little terrace had table & 5 chairs & was very comfortable. It was the 1st week of the season so was quiet but we played bingo, quizzes & watched the entertainment.
We ate there all the time, the food was good & reasonable prices.

cristina apartments= very disappointed,we were placed in room 20,this room is at the very end!
we named the room "prisoner cell block 20" that's what it looked like and felt like.
we requested a pool view,we got a view of a wall with a dart board on it.!make sure you take ant powder,100's of them come out day and night.
we would definitely not be returning to cristina apartments.
i also ate in the restaurant and remained on the loo the next day,needless to say, we only ate there once.

Stayed in a spacious two bed apartment. The kitchen was adequately equipped, plenty of cutlery and china. A kettle was provided that you place on the hob but took an age to boil but we found that you could hire an electric kettle from reception for next to no cost. Had a toaster which was a work of art but did its job. Our towels were changed 12 out of 14 days, bedding changed twice. The cleaner was efficient and we had no complaints. Safety deposit box available in the room.
The walk from the apartments to the beach/shops was not too bad and took about 10 minutes, once you found the best route for you.
The hotel staff were brilliant. Very friendly and couldnt do enough for you. Becky (the kids entertainer) was on her own as David was on holiday but she was brilliant despite having a stinking cold and no days off!. The evening entertainment was the usual - kids mini-disco (which mine loved), bingo, play your cards right, quizzes etc and a professional show a few times a week. If you dont like that sort of thing dont bother going but it was good fun and everyone joined in.
The pool was lovely. Kept very clean and tidy. We didnt have any problems with sun bed hoggers but I can see this being a problem during peak season.
The snack bar and restaurant were good. Food was as you would expect but very reasonably priced. We ate in the restaurant a few times during our stay. There is a supermarket on site that stocks a lot of British branded items but beware the prices. For those arriving late in the evening, you can purchase a welcome pack from reception for

The bar staff are friendly thought the bar prices very reasonable, snack bar during the day serving typical burger type meals, prices reasonable too. Restuarant in the eveing ate in there a couple of times very nice. House rose wine yummmmmmy.
Entertainemnt is your usual bingo kids disco, quizzes ect, heard a few people moaning about it, but to be honest, if it isn't your cup of tea then dont sit there watching!!! Or taking part. Then you can't moan!.
Swimming pool nice size very clean, sun lounge hoggers in full force, from 8.00am, leaving towels out for hours and then coming down about 3.00pm Why!!!!.
Can't comment of the kids club as our children didnt go, to busy in the pool. Overall the complex is clean friendly well run and would I go back YES definitely.
About a 15 min walk to the beach, which was clean and large plenty of sand for digging holes. Just one slight moan was some of the clientelle at the crisitna, call me snobby I don't care, but I like to know what the children are up to, plenty of people just letting kids roam about all evening, over near the pool and gates out to the street, without a watchfull eye on them at all, and I thought after recent events parents would be more dilligent conncerning their kids, but then that's just my opion.
Anyway if you holiday here I am sure you will have a nice time, as we did.
