    The location, 5 minutes' walking distance from the strip, could n't be better. 5 minutes walking from the but station. There was free parking. Would recommend this accommodation.

    Great

    Helpful professional Reception Staff. Entertainment Staff also very good, although understandably more French orientated.

    View from room uninspiring. Bar prices prohibative - during happy hour still more expensive than local Restaurants. Cocktails reasonable. French customers rude and ignorant - catered for by Staff.

    Very clean. Friendly staff. Great location.

    Plastic cups and spoons - not great for a 5* hotel or the planet. No tea/coffee available in rooms - again not great for 5*.

    The apartment and location were ok. Alot of Tourists. Wasnt much culture. A little cheesy. Better suited for families with young kids.

    We had a bathroom that was for disabled people. So the shower was a handheld, so water got all over the floor. Very annoying. Also we couldn't figure out the sofabed. Beds were very uncomfortable. Wouldnt really say it accommodates 4 people. The manager was also quite rude when I approached him about our bathroom. I would not go back to this hotel.

    Nice

    The hotel was very clean.

    When we arrived they had changed our room type without an apology and basically said we can stay in a different room or find somewhere else. This was absolutely disgusting in my view. Secondly, we tried to order some food in the bar and we waited an hour before they told us our order had been lost and it would be at least another 30 mins. Again no apology. Basically the whole hotel was completely under staffed and mismanaged.

    The one bed apartment had a very spacious bedroom and sitting room and plenty of storage which I liked. It also had a washing machine in the apartment which was very convenient. It was away from the 'strip' there was no noise during the night.

    I didnt like the fact that there were only about 20 umrellas at the poolside so not every pair of beds would have one. This put me off going to the pool and I went to the beach instead

    Apartments were stunning - masive rooms for very good prices.

    Restaurant could be improved, but bar was amazing.

    Lovely spacious building and accommodation, beautiful pool.

    Falsely advertised wifi as being free in public areas when it is not. Breakfast was disappointing.

    Attention of personnel

    All facilities like gym, swimming pool, breakfast are for extra charge even the hotel has 4 stars and one would expect to have abovementioned facilities for free.

    Very good

    We found the apartment clean and spacious. The pool area was nice.

    We requested a kettle/hairdryer/shaving light to be repaired but had no assistance on these matters at all. The bar was not very inviting and on one visit the barman informed me he had no vodka I could not believe that he could not run anywhere and get vodka

    Nice

    Fantastic location and lovely hotel. Staff helpful but some confusion at times. Rooms were well equipped. Range of beauty treatments were excellent and the therapist was great. Highly recommended.

    We were woken to work men in the morning as there was still some on going work. We were told breakfast was supposed to be served until 10:30am but the first morning it had finished by 10am. Could benefit with having more than one beauty therapist. Spa was not well advertised. Jacuzzi was only complimentary if you had a beauty treatment, otherwise it was 8 euros/day which was still a good price considering. Sauna was not working and no staff were at hand. There was no kettle in room. Rooms were serviced but towels were not replaced and toilet paper was not re-stocked.
