We stayed here for 15 nights and had a great time exploring the area-a car is definitely essential if you want to explore the local towns, markets and beaches but don't take that as a negative as there are plenty of restaurants and bars within a 15 minute walk and taxis are reasonable. There is a really decent Aldi about a 5 minute drive away but for a huge choice, the supermarket at La Zenia Boulevard only takes 10 minutes to drive to. Communication from the owners, John and Linda, was great and also from Graeme who manages the apartment-he met us there when we arrived and went through everything with us, sharing useful tips about when to visit beaches etc. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay and we even cooked a few meals at the apartment, rather than going out. The pool area is lovely and peaceful-just make note of the rules around food, drink etc at the pool and you'll be fine. There seems to be a good mixture of nationalities in the apartments and both permanent residents and holiday lets-we found that everyone was friendly. We always managed to get a parking space, even in high season, but there was plenty of space on the road if not.
Our favourite beach was Cabo Roig-definitely worth the trek down the steps-great swimming and water sports available-gets busy but we always got a spot-sunbeds/parasol prices seemed a bit high but we were happy to sit on towels as spent lots of time cooling off in the sea. We had a great time here and hope to return in future.
This is the 3rd time in 3 years we have been to this apartment and never disappoints, recommend, easy 15 minute walk to villaplaza, excellent pool.
We stayed at the appartment with 2 young children (9 month old and a 4 year old) and the appartment catered for all of our needs. The appartment itself is very well equipped, clean and maintained to a nice standard. We travelled in April so the nights did get chilly but the gas fires within the appartment helped to keep the appartment warm during these times. The kitchen had all the Utensils, plates, pots and pans etc to enable us to cook a meal or breakfast and there is a dining table inside and also a patio set outside if you wish to eat on the balcony/patio.
The appartment itself is located within a small complex which is very peaceful and beautifully kept by all who live/holiday there. There is swimming pool and splash pool for the kids. My son did use the splash pool but it is still cool at this time of year.
The location of the apartment is approx a 2 minute drive from villamartin plaza for restaurants or there is an Aldi supermarket a five minute drive away.
We hired a car for our stay and would totally recommend this if you want to venture out.
The owners whom we booked through were were very helpful and communicated very well with us throughout the whole process
We shall definitely be booking again
Just returned from staying at this lovely perfect apartment and we can't rate it high enough. The apartment was very clean and spacious, the key holder met us and even helped us unpack the bags from the car.
We have family who live near Villa Martin who were so impressed they have already recommended the apartment to family and friends.
We are already planning on returning next year but this time for two weeks.
Thanks for the great memories
