Default Oro Playa Apts

Can anyone tell me if there is any sign of refurbishments to The Oro Playa for 2013?

I am also looking at the Ora Playa, but have seem some rather bad reviews.
Are they justified. ?

I fear that they are. This aparthotel was once very popular, but has become very run-down over the last few years, only opening for a very short part of the peak season. I believe that it also closed unexpectedly early in summer 2011 with guests being relocated at another hotel.

It needs alot of work to bring it back upto standard. It is a real shame, as location-wise, it is superb.

The Oro Playa still looks closed but we did notice a few lights on in various rooms as we passed by last night. We wondered if they had workmen/women in doing some pre-opening work.

Question

I am still waiting to find out if the Oro Playa refurbs are under way . I too have booked a superior apartment but have been told by one supplier that there are none available as they have not been completed as planned. I was hoping that someone in the resort might be able to take a look for me . I don't imagine the apartments will be opening before the end of May anyway .

Thanks for your reply. I have tried to contact the apartments, but no reply yet. I will keep you posted if I hear any thing.

Reply from hotel today

Hello Clare.

Superior Apartments are planned to be finished during this month (May), so
they should be finished before your check in.

Kind regards

The Oro Playa was in darkness when we walked past last night.

I'll try to have a look later today to see if there is much going on inside.

I popped by today and bumped into a man with a smart suit & clip board. He looked like he was 'in charge' so asked him what was going on.

He confirmed that several of the apartments were being upgraded and that the whole place would be open by the end of this month (May 2013).

Looks like there is plenty still to do, so hope that they will keep to schedule.

Thanks Lorenzo. Thanks for the update. Just need to decide if we should just risk it. Going mid June. Or could you possibly suggest a suitable alternative in the area. Looking for clean apts that are centrally located. We are a family of 4. 2 adults. 2children 3 and 5.

If you want that area I would suggest Flora Apts, just along from Oro Playa. They have been refurbished as well recently. Good luck
