“Safe, comfortable, and amazing vacations”
Reviewed 26 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Well, this is my second time to this apartment complex in La Marina (although I went to another apartment last summer) so I guess I really like it.

The absolute best feature of this apartment is its location. The apartment complex has several pools to swim in, it is at a walking distance from the beach, and it is somwhat isolated (15 to 20 minutes walk) from the nearby village, which for me is a plus. La Marina is a very small village, a street really, but it has all the amenities of a bigger one. It has a mix of Spaniards and mainly British tourists, so you can get served in English even if the village is so small. You have groceries, a pharmacy, banks, a telecommunication stores, everything one must need to the beach, and an amazing ceramic store which I only discovered my last day.

The beach of La Marina, although I shouldn't share this too publicly, is the best in the whole region. It is still quiet enough so you can always find a place to put your towel, although this year it was getting more crowded than previous years. It also has a great windsurf/kite surf school with amazing instructions (certified), most of their "students" were locals so it reflects the quality of the teaching.

The property is a basic apartment will two bedrooms, and it would fit a family of 4 very comfortably, and perhaps more as there was an additional folding bed. The kitchen has anything a regular house might need, including coolers and ice to bring your lunch to the beach - although one must definitively eat at least once at either of the small beach restaurants, they have amazing paellas. Both bedrooms have huge closets. The apartment additionally has satellite TV (4 satellites)! One Satelite was for all British Channels, one for Spanish channels, and the other two were a mix of all european channels.

The owner was particularly friendly and helpful, he even helped me add all sorts of Olympic channels from the BBC during the time of the Summer Olympics. Whenever I needed anything, he would answer back promply and even would show up in 15 minutes as he lived in a neighborhood nearby. To have the safety of having the owner to help out in case of even minor nuisances is definitively a plus.

I also particularly enjoyed the fast internet connection. I needed it for my work as I was finishing up my doctoral dissertation and needed constant access to the internet for communication with my supervisor or with the university when I submitted it.

I would recommend a car although it is not absolutely essential. But it makes it very convenient to visit the surrounding areas as it is so beautiful. La Marina is a quiet village but at less than 10 minutes driving you have all sorts of bigger villages and cities bursting with activities, shopping centers, restaurants, and entertainment open until very late at night.

One additional plus: the region around La Marina is so cheap! I still could not believe making a week's worth of groceries for 40 to 50 euros which included wine (almost free), sangria, and fish, rabbits, and other produce that is at least in Canada way more expensive.

The apartment also had an amazing huge roof terrace (on top of a balcony overseeing the pool) which made it comfortable to take the sun or even lunch or supper. A BBQ would be very practical on that roof terrace. I did see chacoal so perhaps there was one before and it was removed.

The only downside of this location is that it has little cell phone coverage. With the internet it wasn't a problem as I relied on Skype when the signal was weak but finding the signal when I was using the phone was sometimes a challenge.

Overall an amazing, productful and relaxing stay that I recommend to everyone.

Very clean and comfortable appartment in quiet and relaxing location.
Lovely clean beach 10/15 mins walk away, shops 20 min walk or 5mins in car.
You can walk to the beech and shops but we hired a car to get out and about.
I would definitely recomend this apartment and look forward to going back next year.

Management Response
12 Oct 2011
Owner will happily take guests who don't hire a car for a major supermarket shop at the start of their holiday - and a second time if it is a two week stay. So, only topping up is needed during the visit. No charge for this facility.
