Had lovely week here. All the staff are really pleasant from first greeting from recepltionist to all dining room staff, barmen & lifeguards. Given upgrade from studio to one bedroom apartment & requests met i.e. low floor & quiet room. Apartments clean & well equipped . As we were all-inclusive we only made cups of tea but everything supplied had we wanted to make a meal. Pool areas spacious enough & sufficient sunbeds even when hotel became full; loved that beds were locked up until 10am so no need to get up early to get a bed / space. Drinks served nicely at bar & only in plastic glasses when obviously being taken to pool or room or late at night. ONLY fault is the food is not as nice as everything else about the hotel. It is not cooked well, not hot enough nor well presented. Evening entertainment was OK ; variety of acts; children seemed to love their rep who worked hard; needed some proper disco music when acts finished. Bar only until 11 pm so everywhere closed & quiet by midnight which suited us.We got a good deal and would return paying the same but would expect better food had we payed more. Location only for quite mobile people as at quiet end of resort & steep slope on to seafront. On day of leaving was surprised that all-inclusive finished at 12 midday & not allowing lunch; when arriving just in time for evening meal we have always been allowed lunch on day of leaving giving seven days full board. 10 Euros each to continue all inclusive. Love these low rise aparthotels in preference to high rise & El Duque is attractive & very friendly.

I do not understand how this hotel has the Trip Advisor rating it does. This place is awful. We were "upgraded" from a studio to an apartment when we arrived, which seemed promising. When we opened the door, it was far from it. It was tiny, dark, smelt of dust as though it hadn't been used for years. There was no air conditioning, had twin beds and the furniture was so uncomfortable it was virtually unusable. It was little better than a student digs. We complained to reception, who in fairness were helpful, but advised us that only the premium suites have air conditioning, and no rooms have double beds. We upgraded to a suite at an extra cost of €45 per night, which was an improvement, and does have a large balcony (if you don't mind sharing it with cockroaches), but by no means the standard we had expected. It has a television, but you have to pay for a remote control. And also to use the safe in the room costs €16. The facilities are mediocre. The restaurant is buffet style, but has a feel of a school dining hall. The food is acceptable although little variation day to day. The pool bar is open until 23:00, but you will be surrounded by OAP's playing Canasta as this seems to be the target clientele. All in all, our holiday has been ruined by this hotel.

This was our first holiday with a child, and our little one was 8 months old at the time of the holiday in Apr/May 2015. It was always going to be a very different holiday than we are used to. We really enjoyed our holiday, we were there for 2 weeks. The complex itself is very clean and tidy, with lots of greenery. The main pool is big with a little area for the very small children, and there seemed to be plenty of space for everyone who wanted to be round the pool (although we didn't do much of that at the main pool). The smaller pool was great and has the big day beds which was just brilliant for people with young kids. The bar area was good with both sun and shady parts, and a couple of small couch type seats. Dining room is large and food was of a good standard we thought. Of course people can get sick of the similar dishes all the time but when we were there as well as fish, beef and pork like you'd expect there was also Rabbit, Calf, Goat and lots of variety. Lots of salads as well and cheeses/cold meats. Always lots of puddings, and local drinks were all OK. Red wine went down well and my better half liked the Brandy. :) Room was lovely. We paid for the one bedroom apartment, and kept baby in the main living area in the cot provided. If you want to watch TV all night then you would need to move the cot into your room too, which we could have done but we didn't go on holiday to watch TV! Our room was on the ground floor above the dining room. This never bothered us at all, no smells, hot floors or noise. We had a massive balcony/terrace overlooking the main pool and bar area, it was really great. So, pools, bar, food, drink, room - all good. Staff - this for us is what has set this place apart from other holidays we've had. The guys on the bar, Pedro and Javi were excellent. The staff in the dining room gave our baby such brilliant attention he is definitely a little in love with Yasmina. Her and Silvia and a couple of the younger lads were just great with him. The ladies who did the rooms were also great and were polite, friendly and professional as well as working very hard. Even the technical/maintenance staff were friendly. The staff at this complex are a credit to their industry. The guy who does the kids club and entertains them in the evening was also great. We would come here again, but maybe when baby is running about and can get more out of it. Local area is nice - you have more touristy places to the East of where we were and slightly quieter places to the West. Beaches were lovely. I can recommend the place on the beach with the day beds as well. 50 EUR for the day or free if you spend that at the bar/on food. Easily done and food was nicer than you'd expect. A great holiday. If you don't like kids - not for you I'm afraid. there were different nationalities there, Dutch, German, French, Spanish, East European/Russian and of course British. Apart from one lady, you could hardly notice the British people there which I see as a plus point!
