Stayed at hotel for 2 weeks and throughly enjoyed every minute of it from when we arrived the receptionist were friendly and helpful, the bar staff were always polite and very friendly, the rep was always there at the times stated. the rooms were bright, well furnished and clean.

The linen was changed every two days without fail.

Entertainment was first class and there was always something to do every day around the pool for the kids.

The hotel was in a quiet location five minutes walk to the town and ten minutes walk to the sea.

Very enjoyable stay and would go back again and highly recommend to anyone.

Very good value for money! We booked the half board option and was very pleased with buffet breakfast and evening meals.

Plenty of choice and well presented. All hotel staff are friendly and helpful. About ten minutes easy walk to the beach and less to shops.

Hotel entertainment very good,especially for younger children. Pool is quite small, but still managed to get sunbeds in peak season. Air conditioning in apartment and a tv. Towels changed regularly. Apartment clean.

Not huge, but comfortable. Excellent Thomson Rep.

We didn't know what to expect for our 'bargain holiday' and were expecting the worst to be honest....'as long as the weather is good' was what we kept telling ourselves in preparation for poor accommodation.

HOWEVER...this hotel was FAB! The apartment was basic but very clean. The bedding was immaculate, the beds comfortable etc. We had constant hot water and the shower was more like a power shower. It was very clean to say the least; I saw the maids cleaning every single day.

As for food, we ate out all of the time but on our last night decided to try the buffet, and it was excellent value for money. The presentation of the food was lovely, it was hot, and the restaurant was immaculate. The chef kept coming out to make sure everything was okay! I have to say that the breakfasts looked very good too. Lots of guests were eating there and their plates were empty afterwards!

The bar staff were fantastic. They work, what seems to be, 24 hours a day but are great fun and have a great team spirit (not just the bottled variety!) behind the bar. To be honest we had a good laugh with them every day.... which adds to our holiday memories.

Yes, the pool is on the small side, but it was clean and very inviting as the temp. hit the 90s.

The entertainment was okay. For what we paid we didn't expect any...so the fact we got some was a bonus. We had a magic show, beauty show, kids disco, karaoke, bingo, Mr & Mrs etc etc etc. Great if you are there with small kids and don't want to drag them out and about on a night.

The reception staff were very professional and helpful at all times. Nothing was any trouble.

Considering the price we paid (self catering)and the fact it was a late deal we were impressed.

Hotel was clean and tidy, during our 7 day visit the room was cleaned 3 times. The rooms are a touch basic but clean and adequate.

Pool ideal for the kids, water volleyball at 3pm so run for it at 2.55

A real effort was made during the evening's entertainment, the staff were all friendly, what we had of the Hotel food was good value. Holly's Bar nearby an excellent choice for breakfast or later.

15 minute walk to the beach through main shopping street, trips etc to Barcelona (2hrs) pick up close by.

Not the Ritz but 10/10 for effort and would go back.

We were pleasantly suprised on arrival, the hotel is much better than the brouchure indicated.

The common areas were constantly cleaned and the maid called 3 times in the week, changing the towels each time.
The hotel is in a quite area but less than 10 minutes stroll to the beach. They offer a pool side snack service in the day as well as buffet restaurant in the evening, we ate there which was one of the best and reasonably priced meals.

They provide all sorts of childrens activities at various time during the day.
From colouring for the little ones to waterpolo and volley ball for the older ones.
There was professional entertainment 7 nights a week, but its very popular so you need to get your seat in the bar early.

The most disappointing feature was the size of the pool it is small but when we were there in half term you could always get a sun bed and the kids loved it.

The Apartments themselves are nice & cleaned every other day, & they were very quick at getting round to fixing things in your room if you had any problems.

Our room was on the side of the pool which was on the left looking off our balcony, opposite were the back of the locals apartments, which cannot be very nice for them in July & August when the Hotel pool would be very busy & noisy, not that it wasn't when we were there, with the kids on the Ping Pong table & dive bombing in the pool.

I cannot forget Dani the hotel entertainer, as we took our 6yr old goddaughter Katie there was a kids club every morning between 11.00 & 12.00(apart from Sunday) he looked after them for an hour, then there were the competitions all through the day that he organised like Darts, Ping Pong, Pool, Air Hockey, if you won 4 certificates you got a medal. I won 3 I tried on the last day we were there to get another, but to no avail, & at night he was on the Disco in the main bar, with a kids mini disco, were he danced to the music being played with all the kids doing all the different movements, Dani was great.

The appartment was clean, had a good size bedroom, and living room, with all the self catering facilities required. We were on the ground floor but there was no noise at all from the bar.

The pool was freezing and very small and the pool area wasnt very clean, loads of bird droppings.
We didnt actually eat at the hotel as we went to a restaurant every night where a 3 course meal for a family of 4 was about 16 euros (
