On arrival made very welcome and the one bed apartment was very clean and spacious, clean towels and maid service every day could not fault it. Swimming pool area also very good. Only fault can think of there is a lack of entertainment at night time and the drinks were much more expensive than downtown but apart from that we had a super time. Thanks again to Sunshine and will never go past you for future bookings.

Lovely hotel, great facilities and location. Rooms are very spacious and modern. They need to get a grip on the sunbed situation though as you couldn't find a sunbed after 9am despite there literally not being a soul in the pool! Ridiculous really as signs clearly state no reserving with towels but needs backing up with action to actually solve the problem.

Good hotel, excellent location in proximity to both old and new towns and lovely, spacious and clean rooms. The hotel did struggle with people reserving sun beds however, despite notices not to. This proved frustrating as you couldn't find sun beds after 9am, despite most of the beds seeing little use all day by those that put towels on them!

The apartments were cleaned everyday and clean towels and bedding supplied. The staff on reception were really nice and were very helpful if you needed anything. The location was very good, near to a big supermarket, few wee cafes, shops and other apartments. I really like the location and am returning later this year.

Massive room with all the facilities you could need. Large comfy bed with a choice of soft or hard pillows. Lovely large pool with ample sun loungers. However, not sure there would be enough in the summer season when the hotel was full.

This is a difficult place to review because most of it was very good. The room itself was excellent and the cooking facilities good enough for proper self-catering. However, it was let down by a couple of aspects which may be of more importance to some people than others.

Firstly, the pool area must be the least inviting of any we've ever encountered, consisting of a bare pool without a trace of greenery or other ornamentation and surrounded by an ageing and frequently broken collection of sunbeds. The supply of umbrellas is woefully inadequate to meet demand, and if you're lucky enough to find a vacant one the chances are it will be broken. The pool bar is a pretty charmless affair and poorly stocked.

Now this didn't particularly affect us as we always head for the beach anyway. However, there are some very weird reviews I've seen suggesting that it's a ten-minute walk away.

It isn't.

Assuming you'd want to go to the "proper" tourist beach with all the facilities of the town, (Fisherman's Beach), it's 1.06 miles away and a brisk 22 minute (hilly) walk. And yes, I am one of these sad-acts who takes a pocket GPS system on holiday to find my way around.

Other points to note regarding the hotel are that the Wi-Fi facilities are to be paid for and are not cheap. Also, it only works in the reception/ lobby area.

Also of importance are notices pointing out that there are NO facilities for passengers on the low-cost airlines to print out their return boarding cards in the hotel. Quite why is not explained.

On the plus side there is a large supermarket about 100 yards away which stocks everything you could want.

As I said at the start, the basics of the hotel (i.e. rooms and cleanliness) were superb... it's just difficult to see why they let it be let down by the peripheral aspects.

The apartment itself was fine although the cooking facilities were not great; you had a hob but no oven there was a microwave with grill. The bar closes at 11pm on the dot and food stops at 6pm. As for the entertainment it was as good as non-existent.

The supermarket is close enough to walk to, the children's play area is very small and limited, the pool area is fine. As for the sun loungers, some were broken and most could do with a good clean. On the good side of things the Solaqua Apartments are nicely located and you had cleaners come in every day to the apartment.
