The apartments are in a good location and are in excellent order. The rooms were large and well equiped. They were cleaned every day and the maids did a fantastic job. We had a pool and sea view and I have to say that the view over the beach and out to sea were spectacular!
The complex has a good sunbathing area and a large size swimming pool. There is also a toddlers paddle pool next to the main pool. We had a lifeguard on duty while open, despite it being rarely used due to the poor weather. (unusual for October)
The indoor bar area is a little on the small side, although there were plenty of tables outside and around the pool area if you were brave enough to sit out in the cold night air. I believe they're expanding this during the winter, ready for the summer season next year.
You can opt to eat at the restaurant on site for 14 euros per adult and 7 euros per child. We decided to try it out one night and the food was excellent. Easily better than the other restuarants around the small resort. The bar there was also the cheapest in the resort too.(Lager 3.10, wine 1.70 gin/tonic 2.80)
There is also is a pizzeria on the site which seemed reasonably priced, although we never ate there.
We found the other restaurants around the resort to be pricey compared to other resorts in the island. We found best value at the Lord Nelson restaurant and at Las Dunas. We also tried the chinese across the road, but thought it was pretty average and fairly expensive.
There are two supermarkets in the small resort. Both of which were well stocked but, again... on the expensive side! Cheaper supermarkets can be found in Mercedal or Ferriers if you have a hire car.
The entertainment was very poor. Guess this was because it was the last week in the season. The animation team were non existent! They came on a morning to put on music around the pool, only once did a daytime activity for the kids (which was needed more due to the cold weather and not being in the pool) and then returned on the night to introduce an act brought in or to try and drum up enthusiasm for karoke! Don't think this would happen during the high season though.
The resort itself is very small but feels fairly exclusive. It's immaculate and the beach area is breathtaking. Like Menorca, nightlife is very low key but some of the resturants do provide entertainment whilst you can eat your meal.
You can easily get a bus into Mahon and Ciutedella. Both of which are worth a visit. We also enjoyed a trip to see the dancing horses and Cala Galdana.
Overall, an enjoyable holiday (shame about the weather on this occasion) and we would go back again but not for our main holiday.

However, saying that, it is our 5th time here as the accommodation is reasonably priced, very clean, staff friendly, lovely pool, lovely gardens which are shaded with trees if you get too hot by the pool and so convenient for the beach and shops and doctor if you need one. The entertainment is repetitive. When we first started holidaying in these apartments, the entertainment was quite good, but it seems to be the same week after week so we don't go anymore, but if you are only staying for a week and like that sort of thing, then there is something for you. The activities during the day were quite discreet, whereas in other years they were very open, but once again there is something there if you want it.
The pool is large and even when it is full of children, it doesn't feel too overcrowded. It is cleaned and tested every day and there is a lifeguard there the whole time it is open. This year we noticed a lot of Spanish people staying there.
On the whole, we have stayed here 5 times and have never had cause to complain, however, I think our family have now outgrown the makeshift beds which is a shame. If like us, you just want somewhere as a base, then these apartments are ideal.

Rooms were very spacious and clean. We had a room overlooking the pool which was lovely. Entertainment was good and not too loud or over the top. Never had to get up early and scrap over sun beds and there were plenty around with umbrellas and shade. Pool was cleaned daily and I was impressed with the life guard.
We ate in the restaurant on site and food was always hot and well presented a good varitey too. My Children 12 and 15 had a good time as the beach was conveniently near by.
Great time was had by all.

The accommodation was of a very high standard, modern and very clean. The maid service was very good too. Hotel food was of a good standard. There was a pizzarie and a dining roon which was a buffet style.
Entertainment was on every night from 10 pm to 11 pm with several live shows, bands quizes and karaoke. Any entainment was ceased at 11.30pm which ment no noise to disturb you after that time.
My family and I would definitely return again hopefully soon!!!

The apartment itself was kitted out to a good standard and with a very full inventory.
Maid service frequent and thorough. Reception staff all had perfect English and were very willing to assist.
We did eat in the restaurant a couple of times, and each time the buffet was varied and plentiful.
The entertainments were pitched at just about the right level - a good mixture of shows and games run by the multi-lingual hosts.
We would have no hesitation in booking again, nor in recommending this to anyone who wants a quiet beach-based holiday.

Hotel staff were friendly and efficient - they were overbooked when we arrived (not their fault) but had already arranged alternative accommodation for the couple of days it was necessary. They transported all our luggage to the new apartment quickly and brought it back again when we moved back
Entertainment was good clean fun and not too intrusive noise-wise if you wanted an early night.
Air conditioning is promised for 2006 and this will help as at night it was a question of suffocating from the heat or falling prey to the mosquito's!

Food was great for the kids but was a bit limited for adults.
Staff was friendly and helpful unless you wanted a drink from the bar after 11.40 !
Entertainment was very limited as it rained day & night for 4 days, although they did try their best the kids were crawling the walls.
I would visit again, but earlier in the year, if I got a very good deal.

Staff helpfull and friendly.These apartments are in an excellent location. Ate twice in the hotel and the food okay, but not brillliant well worth the 12 euros though.
It rained heavily most of the week and the entertainment was terrible, considering these apartments are in a very quiet resort,although the team did try their best.
The pool was clean and there were lots of sunbeds wich were free, we did get 1 nice day,if you wanted a drink,prices were expensive,but the coffee was lovely.
Would visit these apartments again if they were in a different resort.

Apartment is always spotless when you arrive. Since our first visit in 2003, the kitchens and bathrooms have been refurbished - so much improved.
The location cannot be bettered. Across a pedestrian way from the beach. All the staff are very friendly - particulary the receptionists and the bar staff.
The entertainment in the evening is good - mini disco for the little ones at 8.30, bingo at 9.30 and then main event at 10pm. This varies - some shows and some 'in-house' stuff like menvwomen competitions etc. All good fun.
We have booked already for next year. For families it is ideal - clean, plenty for children to do, right next to the beach.
