The apartments are very well equipped with a kettle, toaster, juice maker and cooker and microwave and all cutlery etc.
The pool area was nice and spacious with plenty of sunbeds available but you still get people out at dawn everyday to get there spot a bit daft considering there were loads of beds.
I did have a couple of gripes about the apartments, the reception is not 24 hours and closes during the day and at night which is a pain as they lock it and you can only then access the apartments via a side gate also the reception staff could cheer up a bit never seen them smile once even though I was always present with them.
The apartment we stayed in was only cleaned once during our stay and the floors were filthy if you walked about in bare feet the soles of your feet would become filthy very quickly. I reported this to reception after our 3rd day and nothing was done about it.
The last gripe I had was if you are in the rooms on the ground floor in 200 - 206 you get people walking past your bedroom late at night making a racket as they return to there apartments which keeps you awake at night. Then in the morning at about 8am the maids making a racket singing and talking loudly to each other in the hall next to your apartment which woke us up every morning.
I spoke to reception about the noise and asked to be moved to another apartment on the first floor and all I got in reply was that they were full this week and there were no other apartments available which was a lie as it was obvious that half the apartments were empty.

Main doors were locked when we arrived, we already knew about this from previous reviews, but when we entered from the side gate it was like walking into an oasis.
Sarah at the bar gave us our keys and we found our apartment had lots of little extras like a bottle of water, washing up liquid, tissues, wet wipes, soap, sachets of shampoo etc.
The apartment was well equipped, with microwave, toaster and full size electric kettle! Very spacious. The only downside was the plastic mattress cover. It was well past it's sell-by date and was grey, cracked and uncomfortable.
We solved this by taking it off! Plenty of sunbeds although pool was FREEZING! Happy hour 3-5pm. No entertainment. Reception not open in the afternoons or after 8pm but this isn't a problem.
Overall, an excellent choice for anyone wanting a quiet holiday, but with plenty nearby.

We made many friends among the other guests, most of them agreeing that the accommodation was very good for the price.
The bar food was rather expensive and we found it inconvenient not to have access to the internet between 1pm and 5pm when reception was closed but we would go there again if we visited p. del Carmen.
Big thanks to Carmen for keeping our apt spotless.

The pool area is clean and we managed to get sunbeds everyday. On our first night we were awake because of the noise of people coming back and could hear beds scraping etc,it was fine after that first night though and seemed just a one off.
We were on the 2nd floor up so I Imagine the noise travels quite a bit through the corridors. Try for the top floor if you can. Watch the chemist downstairs - she tried to short change me and then my friend another time.
Supermarket is great value downstairs and handy for most things - large bottle of vodka smirnoff 9euros. All the restaurants by the harbour are all decent and fairly priced.
Went to the Casino in the new town (3 euros by taxi or 20 min walk) it's small but entertaining for an hour.Lots of bars and restaurants. Overall this holiday was really good and i would visit again. Try booking on Xl.com and Alpha rooms - really really cheap !

They are clean and well maintained, maid service is 5 days out of 7 and towels are changed twice weekly, bedding once. The pool is clean with tonnes of sun loungers to go around.
Pool bar is too expensive and the owner is obsessed with cricket and subjected us to the ashes on a daily basis. He is also a bit cocky and doesnt like it if you dont buy a drink from him.
You get a wee welcome pack upon arrival which contains a bottle of water, toiletries, a post card of the complex and some washing up liquid and sponges.
No roaches mice or rats (as described by some on here)and as for cats roaming around I saw 1 the whole time I was there!

Reception staff - Lady with the blonde hair was very rude and very unhelpful. The rest of the staff were the complete opposite - very helpful. Maids were also very nice.
Watering Hole which is the pool bar, well what can we say, it wasn't my idea of the holiday listening to the cricket for four full days. Drinks were over priced and the barbeque night was like being back at school, being told which way to line up and which way to go when you had your food, just like school dinners! Owner is very ignorant!
No cockroaches and only a few roaming cats!

The swimming pool was lovely and open from 9am till 8pm, the staff were really friendly and spoke good english.
There is a pool table, table tennis and internet access the downside would be the bar as it was only open till 5pm most days,they do a barbecue every Tuesday but there was no entertainment.
There is a supermarket, chemist and a pub just outside reception which was handy. The only other fault is that its situated on a hill but hey plenty of bars on the way up.
