This accommodation is very basic, spacious and, in my opinion, is value for money. I only paid £70 for a week (school half term in February). Don't expect luxury as your not paying for it. Location is ideal this time of year but wouldn't advise with children in peak summer months as this area is very noisy during this time....

Just got back from having spent a week too long at villanova (5th Feb to 12th). Myself 28 years old, my partner 32 years old and our 83 year old grandad. When we checked in we were told we'd been "upgraded" to a villa free of charge as the resort wasn't full. Having originally booked a 1 bed apartment and...

The resort is on the strip but as we went 26th Jan for a week it was quiet with alot of the bars shut but that is why we went for the quiet time. When we got there we were upgraded to a villa of our own without asking which was great. It did get a bit chilly at night...

Now you may wonder where this is going in terms of a holiday review....the movie is loosely about the Jewish ghetto in Warsaw during WW2 and among particular harrowing scenes such...

I'd read some of the reviews on trip advisor and thought no it can't be that bad. How wrong I was. We arrived and the man on reception gave us a studio apartment on the 3rd floor although we requested a ground floor as my partner is disabled. The beds were exactly as others have said, a mattress on a...

Quiet at this time of year but mild, settled weather and lots of nice places to visit within walking distance and short bus rides. You ll still be dragged in bars on The Strip if that's your thing but some good eateries and very friendly locals. Cheap and cheerful.
