Disappointing in parts

Our first problem was we did not recognise the name of the apartment where we had been dropped off. We were looking for Las Planateres but the signs said Atlántida. The bungalows were about a 5 minute walk to the front but built on a steep incline. Although most of the bungalows were on 2 levels, others were single level, the view got better the further up the hill you went. It looks as if the bungalows have been built at different times, the higher you went the newer they looked. There are steps everywhere. No lift. The entrance from reception to the bungalows has been beautifully planted with palm trees and shrubs and the whole complex is well looked after in terms of sweeping up dead plants and rubbish. We asked for a high floor, which we got, 2nd level, a sea view, not possible because we were away from the front with some high rise hotels in front of us. The bungalows looked 5/6 sided from outside so inside there were some funny angled layouts to the rooms. Our bungalow did face the sea and because of this, the balcony, also angled, got the sun in the morning, all through the day. We also had some sun loungers on our balcony, which was great for sunbathing in the afternoon. But not everyone had these. Do not know why. The beds were very comfortable, the black out blinds very good. The wardrobe was a good size, but the only mirror in the apartment was in the bathroom. The bathroom had a washing machine, separate shower, bath with shower, 2 basins, bidet and a toilet. The kitchen had a large fridge freezer, a 2 hob electric cooker but no preparation space at all, part of the counter had been cut away to make space for the fridge freezer. A large dining table with 4 chairs, a TV, which despite the reception staff informing us that there were English channels, there were not. The maintenance man came on 2 occasions with a list of channels and a computer key to change programmes, the only ones we got was sky news, a music channel and 2 really old film channels in English but dubbed in Spanish so unable to understand. 2 occasional tables, a side board of sorts and a sofa bed that has seen better days. The towels were changed everyday, rubbish cleared every day, beds were tidied every day, sheet and pillow cases were changed but not sure how often, at least 4 times whilst we were there I think. The cleaners were very nice.The complex had 3 pools on different levels, the bottom one was cold but the top 2 were heated. The middle pool was near the restaurant and generally full, not suitable for swimming, The top pool was the best for swimming but it needs drastic attention, tiles and paint in and around the pool coming off. Definitely seen better days. Lots of large areas and terraces with sunbeds near the pools. There was a life guard around but he seemed to be based in the middle pool. The restaurant was decorated like an Aztec/mayan cave. We only had breakfast on the last day, which was good. A range of food, hot and cold. Next door was the entertainment area. It was a very big, high ceilinged and cold environment. Again looked like a dark cave, maybe to emulate the volcano? The bungalows provided live entertainment most evenings on a 2 week cycle, magic, knife throwing, parrots and animals, duos, singers, some in Spanish, some in English, flamenco. The stage area was big with plenty of coloured lights, but I did feel sorry for some singers who looked far away from the audience and tables, one or two who were good, looked lost. The bar was okay but limited in types of drinks. I think we were the only British people there at that time, most were Scandinavian with a smattering of German. The complex staff were mostly very nice and friendly. The safes were located near reception but while we were there, safes were installed in all the bungalows, however we were not able to use them as they needed to be checked by the company. The website information said the bungalows had hair dryers, not true, you could hire one for 15 euros or as I had to do, go to the Chinese emporium, where you could get everything and anything and bought one for 8 euros. One of the reception ladies told me that the bungalows had contacted the web site provider a number of times to say there were no hair dryers, but it still appears. We did not have a frying pan, one was provided fairly promptly. We love to buy local ingredients and cook our selves, however because of the lack of cooking preparation space in general, we ate out more than we ate in. In the end it did not matter because we found some excellent value for money restaurants in the local area.There was also no dust pan and brush in the bungalows which was odd. The bungalows do need serious attention, painting, newer furniture, more mirrors, especially in the bedroom, the bathrooms also need to be re vamped, the bath/shower taps and attachments were hanging off the wall. The complex had card keys and most of the time you had to use them to get from reception to the apartments, however as the weather warmed up in the 2nd week, the doors from reception were left open. The bungalows were very quiet at night. The market is being re-vamped so every Sunday, the market traders set up shop at 4-30am on the road outside. The noise really did not affect us too much as we were set back from the road. Although we had a very good holiday in this area, despite the cooler weather during the first week, overall the bungalows could have been better.

Booked via Travel Republic for a week. Had a comfortable room overlooking one of the swimming pools with a balcony at the back that got the sun from the morning to early afternoon. There was plenty of storage room. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had a bath and a shower, although the toilet flushing was a bit faulty. There was a washing machine in the apartment too which was very handy. All kitchen needs were supplied and towels were changed as required. Access to the bungalows and the individual apartments was through a sophisticated electronic card. The reception for check-in was large and the staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was served in the rather odd "Cave Bar" but was generally good, although the fruit juice (from a machine) was sweet and unpleasant. Overall, a good choice and its location close to the beach was an advantage.

Poor reception staff and greetings!

The beds creak, only 1 plug in the kitchen, walls cracked and need painting. Light switches no where near the door, only 1 small light in the bedroom, far corner away from the door. Bedroom door does not close so if sharing with others, you have little privacy! Had to move the microwave to plug it in anywhere! Pool closes at 5pm even though still light. Asked Reception to book a 5 seat taxi to leave, was told no need, then when we left no taxi available as not pre booked? Had to pay for 2 and double the price!! No reply to enquiry sent and claimed they never received it from Booking,com, two rooms booked, as to be together. Only one booked on arrival and no other room near it so we were not near each other.
