Dirtiest place we have ever stayed, contained rats

Words cannot describe our experience at this establishment. On our arrival we were horrified with the cleanliness and general demeanor of our apartment. The towels were stained, the crockery was dirty and still contained pieces of food from the previous occupants. We booked a room that would cater for four persons yet there was only three beds present. And so we had to enter another room to retrieve another bed with a matress approximately 25mm thick. Therefore after that the first thing we had to do to the whole room was to give it a deep clean. The room didn't contained the necessary equipment for self catering accommodation including basics such as a bread knife and even a saucepan. In our room there were many plumbing and electrical faults. For instance, when referring to the electrical faults, the fan didn't work and took two days to fix, electrical wires were exposed and the smoke alarm was inoperable. There too was plumping faults which included both drains being blocked and so gave off a rancid smell and also everytime the toilet was flushed water leaked from it. The most serious matter of this establishment was the ant and RAT infestations. On several occasions throughout our stay we seen rats running across our balcony, immediately we complained and was offered another room to go to. However, the next morning after accepting we were told that there never actually was a room available for us.More

Very basic

The room was cleanish, we certainly didn't see any rats. It was well equipped with cooking utensils although we eat out so didn't use them. We has a kettle, toaster and microwave. The tv only had Spanish channels but that's not an issue for us. We were allocated a ground floor room at the front although we requested a high floor. The view wasn't great but ok, we didn't find the road or nearby hotels too noisy. The electrics were worryingly poor and a knob was missing from the gas hob. The beds were not good quality. Reception had limited opening hours and was sometimes closed when it should be open. The hotel restaurant had a limited unappealing menu and was expensive compared to the cafes and restaurants 200m away. The appeared to be 20 sun loungers and 5 parasols between the 42 apartments although we did manage to find some available at times. The location is quite central. Some apartments seemed very superior to others. A derelict hotel loons next door but wasn't as bad as feared, rather an incomplete project than anything. Maid service was simply to drop off bedding or towels. No cleaning took place. No toilet rolls given. There is no entertainment so not too noisy. All just a bit too basic give the 3T rating Thomsons give. This is a 1 key apartment and is fine at that eating, Shame Thomson promises more.More

Family holiday

We stayed here for 11 nights from 23rd of July. First impressions of apartments were very promising the location was nice and the external view was beautiful, the receptionist Isabella was very friendly and efficient and helpful. Unfortunately the rooms were very basic there was a musty smell from the drains but after the room was aired it wasn't so noticeable the TV didn't work but was replaced straight away we didn't have a toaster but one was provided promptly and the bathroom light didn't work but it was repaired within one hour, if you want the Ritz don't stay here the rooms are basic but everything you need to survive was there the apartments are not 3 star and Thompsons the travel operator should not be selling it as such,all the rooms are in need of a facelift the towels and sheets were changed once but there is only one lady cleaning and she was run off her feet you have to get rid of your own rubbish and we cleaned our own room but we didn't find this a hardship the pool area was adequate and the kids had hours of fun all in all it was a nice relaxing vacation.

Andy R,

Needs an overhaul

I wasn't expecting great things after reading recent reviews before going out to resort. I booked this over a year ago when the reviews weren't bad and the money i paid was excellent for a 2 week holiday in the summer holidays. The accommodation looks great from the outside but is very dated on the interior. The beds are an old metal frame with a very thin mattress so if you like a comfy bed then don't go here as you will be complaining. There is also a problem with ants but if you ask Isabella for the ant spray she will give it you. It is noisy because of the hotel entertainment next door and the bar just down the road because it is open air and the sound carries. It isn't on till late though, about 12 - 1ish. There aren't enough sun loungers for the amount of guests and they are the old plastic ones, so again if you want comfort don't go here as it is very basic.With a good overhaul and an investment in new matching furniture etc, this could be a little gold mine. The bar staff Toby and Amber are brilliant and will go out of their way to help and try and get you want you want.. The resort has very limited restaurants and bars, if you like chips you will be ok.There are only 2 supermarkets in resort which are quite expensive, but unless you have a car to drive the 30 - 40 minutes to next town your stuck. The aquapark at the Marina park hotel is well worth the 20 euros for the day if only to lie on a comfy bed. The beds on brollies on the beach cost 15 euros for 2 beds and a brolly.More
