Owners of Anfi Beach Club often find themselves trapped in infinite contracts with rapidly increasing maintenance fees which ultimately stems from a mis-sold timeshare contract. Over recent years there have been a number of ground-breaking rulings regarding mis-sold timeshares by many timeshare groups and resorts which have resulted in refunds and compensation. Many owners of Anfi timeshare contracts are entitled to, or have already made claims for “timeshare contracts in perpetuity”
A different experience!!!
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment at the Anfi’ Beach Club as guests of a relative.
Our room was for two adults and two children who slept on a sofa bed in the living room area which was quite spacious and had sliding doors that opened the full width of the room onto the balcony area. The bedroom was adequate in size and also had sliding doors onto the patio area. The apartment needing updating as the bathroom (although spacious) required new floor & wall tiles (in my opinion).
The shower cubicle was big enough but the doors leaked onto the bathroom floor which was a hazard.
On arrival, we were greeted well by the night time staff & they explained things well. However, it appeared the room was made up for two adults as there was no sheets for the sofa bed which I had to request by attending the reception.
Arriving after midnight with a 13 & 10 year old, I would have expected the sofa bed all made up. However, I had to set it up myself & make the bed. We did not tip the cleaner, because she seemed annoyed/ rude when my wife was still in the rooms, worktops were not always cleaned & she put dirty cups, plates, etc in the dishwasher which had clean stuff in it!!!.
Although the apartment was self-catering, they only had an electric hob & microwave, but no oven which tells me they expect you to eat in the restaurants on site. The room also had a washer/dryer, kettle, coffee machine and all the cutlery & plates, etc. The swimming pool at the beach club was nice but as with most places, sun beds were hard to find after 10.30.am.
Although they had a policy of not being allowed to put towels on them to save for later, they did not enforce this which is a shame. Cooked breakfast (self service) was nice with lots of variety at a cost of 10 Euros per adult & 5 for children (all you can eat).
There was a 5 year old & two 17 month old babies that were not charged. Outside the complex & along the beachfront was some varied restaurants.
I can recommend the ‘Tapas’ restaurant which also does an English style food. We ate there most nights at my bill averaged 75 Euros for two adults & two children.
We tried the Italian next door to the left of the Tapas but the staff were not as friendly & the service was poor. Also, my eldest Granddaughter had a bad tummy after & threw her food up during the night.
We stayed for one week, did not venture out due to our group having small babies.
However, a taxi to the nearby town is only 4.5 Euros & I was told there is plenty of restaurants & shops, etc along the seafront. There is a small Spar shop at reception & a big Spar supermarket along the beach front opposite the white bridge that crosses to a small island.
I would criticise the Anfi Beach Club staff for not being friendly with very few smiling faces. The pool attendants were vigilant at all times which was good as the pool area is divided into three section for Babies, children & adults.
