From making the initial booking Maureen and John were there to assist with all my queries, and were there to meet and greet us on arrival providing an insight to the area which was completely new to us. The accommodation provided the perfect base and Maureen and John had thought of everything to ensure all our needs were catered for, down to milk, a bottle of Cava, and even boxes of tissues. There was nothing we felt was missing. The beach and several good eateries are within easy walking distance of La Giralda and even Dénia port could be accessed on foot although the bus route is nearby, however we preferred the convenience of the hire car we collected from Alicante airport. The area provided huge contrast, the beautiful beaches, Montgo Mountain, the busy coastal town of Javea, the upmarket resort of Moraira, the market at Jesús Pobre, but we loved Playa de las Marinos and the centre of Dénia both offering contrast in themselves. We were impressed by how friendly everybody was despite our embarrassing lack of the Spanish language. We ate out most evenings and did not have one meal when we felt disappointed......neither was eating out exorbitant, and that was including wine. We will most definitely go back there is still so much we would like to see and do, and can’t think we could find a better base to explore northern Costa Blanca than from La Giralda. Thanks to Maureen and John for helping to make this holiday so special....we have travelled far and wide but this comes up with some of the best.
Excellent accommodation, cleanliness 5 stars. We were very impressed with the duplex, very comfortable and everything you could possibly need for your stay was provided. We found a couple of very good restaurants within a few minutes walk, and as we love Deveses beach (which is only a 10 minute drive) was a superb location for us, Also the local beach is just 7 minutes walk away from the Duplex. We found the owners Maureen and John very helpful and were surprised by a welcome pack (which came in handy as we arrived on a Sunday) of water/juice/milk and complimentary tea/coffee /condiments. The bottle of bubbly was also a very welcome gift. Would not hesitate to recommend and we look forward to our next stay at La Giralda. Thanks Maureen and John we really enjoyed our stay.
Having never booked through trip advisor before we were unsure how this family holiday would pan out but we needn’t have worried.
Maureen and John, the owners of the duplex, would instantly text back any answers to the numerous questions we had during the booking process including info and numbers for local taxis which was great so I could pre book before hand.
On arrival we were greeted by Maureen and John who then showed us around the duplex and grounds explaining any info we might need.
Inside the duplex was very well presented and spotlessly clean with various drinks for us including bubbly in the fridge which was lovely.
We really appreciated the split level of this holiday home as with 2 kids you could lose yourself on another level to escape iPads or Tv for a bit.
The balcony on the first level was a favourite as it looks out over at the mountains while you can enjoy a cheeky G n T!
We also appreciated the 2 bathrooms which makes life easier.
The grounds of this small complex are via a keyed entry so it felt safe with the kids. The gardens were immaculately kept and the swimming pool was also very clean and well maintained, Quite often we were the only ones using it.
Location wise it’s about a 10 minute walk to the small supermarket, bakery, restaurants, beach and bus stop. The bus can take you to Denia for €1.50
each and takes about 15 minutes and is very painless.
Denia is a great place to visit with hundreds of restaurants, we didn’t have a bad meal anywhere.
We also enjoyed the Moore’s and Christians Fiesta where the whole town celebrates for a week in August.
Once back at the duplex at night it’s a a lot quieter
and there is no problem with getting a good sleep as it really is silent. The fans and air con work great also.
On the one day we had some heavy rain out of the blue we made the most of the board games that are stashed away in one of the drawers which really helped keeping the kids amused and delayed the screen time.
We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and it exceeded our expectations. Maureen and John are a lovely couple and seem to really care about you having a great holiday.
Thank you both and hopefully we will come and stay. again some time!
Clean, tidy Duplex with air / con and ceiling fans (a must), great location close to Denia, fabulous swimming pool area & close to the sandy Les Marinas beach. John & Maureen (the owners) were a pleasure to deal with
