“Disappointing and dark”
Reviewed 18 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018
3
people found this review helpful

Booked for 28 days but we left after 9 and we would have gone sooner but could not find availability anywhere suitable until today. The description stated it is a very bright apartment. It is most definitely not. The apartment is not round the pool as the photos would have you believe. It is at the back of another apartment and under other apartments in a separate building to the main complex. Access is through a side gate at the end of a cul de sac a few streets away from the Pelicanos complex. Access to the pool is u a steep flight of steps and round walkways and buildings. The interior is well furnished and equipped but unlike the photos it is so dark in the lounge you have to have all lights on even in the middle of the day. There is no natural light into the lounge except through the open door into the courtyard. The amenities state a full bath but there is only a shower. Sink has no plug and space is extremely limited. There is however ample storage. Good storage in kitchen and bedroom. If you are from UK and want to watch TV there is only 1 English speaking channel. Outside is perhaps the worst we have encountered in 40 years of travelling. The tiny courtyard is surrounded on 3 sides by 10 metre high walls and is also under 2 walkways so basically receives little or no sunlight. The sun does peep into the courtyard for less than an hour at midday. On arrival the owner met us and spent less than 5 mins with us. She just pointed out the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, washer, and steps to pool. She spoke only in Spanish and even though I told her that I only spoke a little of her language she just laughed and carried on. The description stated English is spoken but all emails were also answered in Spanish (thank goodness for Google translate). There is absolutely no information about how to operate the top loading washing machine, oven, microwave or where to take rubbish. No cleaning is included which is fine but when it got to the 8th day and there was no sign of any clean towels or bed linen arriving I sent an email to enquire if and when we would have some. At 8pm a young man brought them and said if we needed clean linen we had to ask. Also if you don't like dogs the apartment in front has 2 which will bark at you every time you go past. You cannot avoid them because the apartment is down a narrow pathway alongside. This pathway is your only way out in an emergency so it is a bit of a worry if anything were to happen to the apartment in front because you would not be able to get out unless you scaled one of the walls. WiFi is strong and fast. This is an honest review of what we found compared to what the photos and description lead one to expect. There is also no proper bed for a 3rd person, they have either the sofa or a camp bed. If you are only planning to stay for a short time and are simply looking for a base to shower eat and sleep and out all day then it could be for you but if you are wanting something for a longer stay and a place to relax in the sun and potter about then save your money and look elsewhere.

“Perfect for a nice break”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Just spent two weeks in this apartment. Everything you need for a holiday in PDC with enough facilities to be self catering if that is your preferred option, but plenty of places to eat out. In a quieter part of the complex but only about one minute away from the pool. Slight problem on arrival as to where exactly it was but once that was resolved no problems other than lack of info as to how to operate washing machine, cooker etc.but help is near at hand. I think this is a new rental so these little glitches will be resolved as it goes along. We would certainly return if available.
