We stayed at the Sombrero in 2010, we had a pad that faced the chinese, everyone had to walk past us to go through the gate (it said close the gate please, lock it) of course most of the Brits were semi iliterate and left it open. The pad however was kept very clean, the gardens also, we found it basic but for the price quite acceptable, tv was extra, internet 2 europs an hour was a joke, it was so slow, the owner was a very nice guy, and very helpfull. We split two weeks with Sombrero and Pablado Marineros, Marineros was by far the better view, but we did not get the sun, in sombrero we did, which was nice as it was cool, plus we caught the dreaded bug.
We are back again this winter but have arranged a private pad in somewhere we know for a month.
Legal or not we do not care, the holiday comes first!
