“ Basic accommodation but clean, stunning views from 4th floor and above
“ Top Tip: Good restraunts and irish pub
Mark from Sheffield
“ The hotel was very basic, not very clean and had an awful smell of drains throughout the apartments. The hotels location is good and provides amazing views of the sea but is at the top of a very steep hill which would not be ideal for young family's or the elderly however the taxis to the Commercial Centre only cost 4/5 euros so it's fairly cheep. The pool area was nice and seamt to have plenty of sunbeds available at all times, the views from the pool were amazing. The food provided from the hotel was very basic and not very enjoyable at all. The staff at Blue Star apartments were very rude and couldn't be less helpful if they tried. I wouldn't recommend a stay at Blue Star as overall it was really dissappointing for myself and my family.
“ Top Tip: Amadores Beach is stunning, I would deffinately recommend you take a walk down.

“ Very badly maintained complex, very shabby apartments, needs refurbishing.
Martin from Cheadle
you get what you pay for...this is as cheap as it gets and is perfectly acceptable if your on a budget. i have just returned from a week there and most people go the the canaries for some winter sunshine...well staying at these apartments its wall to wall sunshine from 8.30am to 6.30pm. ok the rooms are basic and the beds are uncomfortable but if you want luxury,then pay for it...!! as for the spanish people in at the week-end,what do you expect they are on holiday also,its just like english people going away for the week-end,
do something different on a sat or sun...as for the cleanliness...rooms cleaned 3 times a week and the pool cleaned every morning before most people are up !!
the poolbar service is ok...but there is a great shopping centre 100 mts away for food and drinks.
if you want loud and all busy,use the commercial centre,if you want quite use the europa centre...best of both worlds...
as for ants and cockroaches its the same all over the world,its very hot there...no ants and roaches in blackpool !!
travel republic excellent as usual,use them all the time...highly recommended
free tip...do your homework people before travelling
hideaway bar,nice and comfy and cheap prices
chinese restaurant....both on the first floor of the europa centre
