We have stayed in this area three times before, The apartment is located off Bonanza square has excellent sea views, lovely pool and garden area, its peaceful and relaxing. The apartment spacious light and airy and is well equipped with everything you could need. (Should you have a problem then Carmen is on hand to assist) Gary the owner supplied us with all the relevant information, and replied promptly to any queries we had. You are spoilt for choice for the many bars and restaurants around this area,
We stayed in this apartment the week before Easter 2017 and it was lovely as described! emails beforehand were friendly, useful and relevant and we were met on arrival by the owner's Aunt, Carmen who had some groceries for us to settle us in on the first night.
Swimming pool opens the Sunday before Easter (as we arrived) and was warm enough despite being early on in the season. Towels in the apartment and sun shades in the garden so nothing else needed.
The apartment was very well fitted out for everything you need and having two bathrooms was very useful, with great facilities such as a washer, large fridge / freezer and an area for drying separate to the Balcony overlooking the pool, great for that late night glass of wine once the children are tucked up in bed!
The back of the apartment overlooks the "British Square" below but is high enough to be away from the bulk of noise from the outdoor pool tables and people watching football on TV etc. Plenty of food restaurants too, although we ate in local places and ventured out further away from the tourist trail rather than going to one of the "Brit Bars" offering Full English or Sunday Roast! :-)
There is a large park with chickens and rabbits (no foxes luckily!) and a children's play area within 5 mins walk of the apartment. Also, hire a car and get out and about as there are Carrefour and other supermarkets near for food shopping and the local scenery is stunning if you drag yourself away from the tourist trail! We were there for Maundy Thursday and Good Friday so went to local villages to see the Santa Semana parades which were amazing to see!
The Marina in Balemadena offers good restaurants and there are guide books in the apartment too which was very useful. We will do some reports on our favourite (and not) places to eat no doubt.
Would definitely visit again - great place and great value. Came home fully relaxed (may have also been the local Spanish wine.....?!!!). :-)
Excellent apartment in all respects. Not like the normal apartments. This has a nice homely feel to it. .Gary the owner's communication is first class from the moment you book and Carmen will warmly meet you on arrival and help with any questions. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need. Even made fresh orange juice using the electric juicer. Great location as many bars & Restaurants on the doorstep with prices very reasonable. Handy for the train from airport and other locations to go and visit. We stayed for a month so it was great to have free WI-FI in the apartments and TV with good channel choices.
Hope to return again in the future and would not hesitate to recommend.
