This was a bitterly disappointing fortnight for my family, with nothing really coming close to living up to past reviews of 'excellency', either within the bungalow or in the nearby vicinity. As well as the main pool remaining closed for the duration then, with only a comparative waist-high puddle to splash in rather than facilitating any swimming, the drive into the property was also dug up and cordoned off during our stay. There was also a very noisy overhead ceiling fan in the main bedroom which kept us all awake on a nightly basis, a dishwasher which failed to wash, uncomfortable settee/armchairs due to their dipping at the front, & a hostile environment, described as a 'garden', with a dangerously crumbling wall and grass that sliced our knees and fingers like razorblades.
We stayed at Las Adelfas- this is Adelfas 1, the older of the two Adelfas.
It was blissfully quiet - OK it's under the flight path, but everywhere on the SW coast is.
The gardens are lovely. The pool is quiet, and if you can stand the cool waters, very refreshing.
Restaurants locally are good, if not "fancy".
The only mistakes we made were these.
We booked our car through eDreams BIG MISTAKE - we were charged for a full tanks for a little car which we hardly used. The small print meant that I'd "opted in" without realising.
BEWARE! Our other problem, and a lot of others is that your return booking which might include a checked in bag is not recognised by Ryanair, meaning that you have to pay again for an "unbooked bag" €40!
Please also be aware that Ryanair expect you to check in 7 days before your return, so either pay their costs for early check in or you'll be doing what two senior ladies were doing - looking for wifi for three days so that they could check in. Rip off!
Wi fi is not easy to find unless you buy something, ie a drink, a meal etc.
So in summary: avoid eDreams like the plague, be very careful with Ryanair, although their "app" works well.
Pros- very cheap food, beer so cheap you'll check the bill for a catch. Weather to make you realise what life could be like.
