Excellent place to stay we were there for 9 days and there was everything you needed in the apartment it was like home from home with the bonus of sunshine. The Paloma park and Selwo Dolphin park are directly opposite the apartment which was great for my 2 year old grandson he loved going to see the chickens and rabbits there are plenty of playgrounds for children and cafes in the park. There is an abundance of restaurants round about and the majority of them do takeaway or sit in which is great if you don’t want to cook. There is a large supermarket not far from the apartment for buying your holiday essentials. I would highly recommend this apartment but leave a spare week or two for me to return next year.
This apartment is 5 mins from the beach 2 mIns from Paloma park and Selwo sea life centre. The apartment is lovely it’s like home from home everything you need is here. It’s very spacious and plenty of room for my grandson to run about think we made the right choice highly recommend it..
Lovely flat, excellent location for family's with Children. We have a lovely week, would definitely consider coming back.
The site has 2 pools, but outdoor not open all year round. It was warm enough to go to the beach in Mid May, even swimming in the sea (a bit cold!) Beach is a 5/10min walk.
The park is over the road and has a number of different play areas, walks, animals and a small lake. No chance of kids being bored!
Marine park is just up the way it's close enough that you'll hear it from the balcony! They send the captive parrots out for a fly in the park at about 10am every morning.
The sightseeing bus also leaves from outside the marine park which will get you to all the main local tourist spots or the Marina / Sealife Centre. The "road train" also passes by, we didn't use it so can't comment on where it goes.
Taxi rank is a 5 minute walk along the southern edge of the park. Costs about 5 Euro to get to the Marina.
Things to be aware of
Closest mini market for basics is probably at the Sahara Sunset Diamond Resorts hotel on the way to the beach (down the hill).
If you love your TV, best come prepared as the TV in the flat has 2 English language channels.
Kitchen is basic but completely serviceable. Utility has a washing machine and a dryer.
Delightful location adjacent to Paloma Park, which our grand-daughters adored. Park has play areas, lake, beautiful plantings and walks and ... free ranging, almost tame poultry, rabbits, peacocks, as well as compounds for donkeys and goats. There are snack bars too, what more do a 5 & 8 year old need? The man who brought the giant soap-bubble frames each evening was just the icing on the cake!
We didn't hire a car, shopped locally, found several pleasant eateries. Used local buses.
Downside? Disappointed by the beach - narrow, quite steep, no evidence of green flags, weren't happy for girls to paddle beyond ankle-deep.
Rather disappointed that the apartment was swept clean of consumables. Having flown in we left essential washing up liquid, detergent, kitchen roll, tea bags, sugar, etc. Apartments we have used previously have always had a small welcome pack of consumables which save an immediate rush out to shop. Some equipment was missing - only 3 teaspoons, 2 tumblers, limited crockery for a group of 5, nothing to warm a pizza on! Otherwise ... very good, loved the indoor pool, but you will need a swimming hat.
Slightly surprised to be charged an additional booking fee by Trip Advisor.
