    the high quality of the apartments and hotel facilities. the location was excellent also. the beach is a long walk, however a bus takes you there and collects you again and a tourist train which costs 2euro can take you to the old town.

    The staff at reception were not very welcoming or grateful for our stay when we were leaving. Also, the manager of the restaurant had an aura that he had done nothing wrong when the food took an hour and a half to arrive. He failed to apologise until the very end.

    Very good

    Huge apartment and two bathrooms (this is great). Many, many services/facilities (pools, playgrounds, gym,...). Very nice balcony were meals can be had.

    No style. Beds are quite uncomfortable. At least one of the bedrooms could have a double bed instead of two twins.

    We liked the location as it was walking distance to many places but a lovely peaceful area. The Vila Petra was very clean and well kept and staff were pleasant. The pools and garden were gorgeous and just a perfect place for families with young children.

    Apartment was very nice - clean and spacious. Location is excellent. Found staff very helpful - E.G. needed extra pillows, and this was not a problem. We apologised to staff at reception as we felt we were using them as a tourist information service, but the gentleman there said it was no problem at all, and they were quite used to guests asking them for directions etc. The mini market was very handy at the Vila Petra. The pool is lovely, and it is great that there is no charge for sunbeds. We got clean towels every day, and the sheets were changed also during our 1 week stay. No charge either for remotes for air con. We would highly recommend Vila Petra.

    Great location close to the strip but not too close that noise at night was an issue. The facilities were excellent, no problem getting a bed at the pool, decent gym. Spin class was excellent and the staff were more than helpful. The rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff were excellent at keeping this so during our stay. The kitchen was well kitted out with all the items you would like to find but are not always there in other places. All in all an excellent holiday in a great hotel.

    Excellent facilities - room good and very clean.

    Nothing except having to pay for wi-fi. Out of keeping with most other modern facilities.

    Fabulous

    The location is excellent for reaching bars shops restaurants etc,however it is well enough away from the noise of the strip.The appartments are fresh modern and clean and of a decent size.The swimming pool and surrounding garden area are maintained to a high standard and if you cannot get a sun bed there is plenty grass area to sunbathe.

    The staff are not as pleasant or helpful as they should be.The bus to the beach is too small,if more than 8 persons going you have to wait on it returning to take you if you are not one of the lucky 8.

    The hotel was fantastic. The rooms were clean, the staff were very friendly and they have a great pool and bar too. The location is also great if you are wanting to go down the strip. The old town is better though in my opinion, and it was a short 5 min taxi drive, costing around 4 euros to get there.
