I only used this hotel as a base for a week, I didnt use the bars, pool or restaurant as had a hire car and was out most of the day. Parking at the hotel was no problem at all.
The apartment was clean and spacious and well equipped. The free wi-fi was excellent in all parts of the building that I used.
Walking distance to "the strip" with some local bars and restaurants a bit closer.
Hotel shop was handy for fresh fruit and milk but not a lot else, plenty of supermarkets in the area.

"Fantastic resort with access to shops and markets"
This is my second time staying at this resort and I was lucky this time to have been able to stay in one of the villas surrounding the pool. I highly recommend the villas due to the very large patio areas attached to them. Throughout the day, we were able to move position, around the patio to sunbathe or find a shaded area as a tree was well positioned. Wild birds singing and the overall peaceful feeling within this resort just added to the 'feel-good factor'.
The staff are so friendly and the cleaner was so flexible and called daily to see if we needed anything.
The pool is great and it also has a high diving board, in a deeper water section, and this was enjoyed by most of the bathers. There is also a kids pool and both pools are very open and unshaded which help to make the water warm. However, patio umbrellas are readily available plus sunbeds are plentiful.
There is also a pool bar which also serves snacks and the food was really high quality yet reasonable in price
