“Simply outstanding, we cannot wait to go back”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My partner and I have just returned from 12 days at this appartment, it was simply excellent.

The whole holiday from start to finish has been amazing, starting right from the initial communication with the UK based owners to our departure.

We arrived late evening, but knew exactly where to go and how to access the property due to the cohesive welcome/arrival pack posted to us with the keys prior to our departure. When we arrived no shops were open so imagine our smiles to walk into a apartment with bottled water chilling in the fridge, and a abundance of toilet rolls.

As for the apartment, well yes the beds do contain heavy duvets, it didn't take rocket science to work out that these could be removed from the covers and the covers alone were perfect to sleep under. Due to the heat the apartment is warm, however the owners had provideid oscillating fans so we found it easy to cool down and slept like logs. The apartment is kitted out with everything you may need - even a washing machine is provided! The kitchen is perfect for a holiday break, the lounge is comfortable with TV and DVD - the owners even have a selection of CD's, DVD's and Books - although why on earth would you want to be inside watching TV, when its over 30 degrees outside.
The bedrooms are well furnished, and have everything you need, plenty of drawer space, plenty of wardrobe space (with tons of hangers), ideal if like my partner yours takes at least 3 dresses for each day!

The apartment has 2 bathrooms - one shower room and one containing bath and shower, these are well furnished and good quality towels were left for us to use.

One other bonus of this apartment is the balcony that overlooks the sea - WOW! I'll say no more, go and enjoy a breakfast there and you'll know what I mean.

The complex has a pool and not once in 2 weeks did we find it crowded, we were always able to get sunbeds (even at weekends). it was mostly Spanish and German couples and families during or visit, all whom were courteous. Some families had young children and they were often splashing around in the pool doing what children do, by no means should this put you off as they were always well behaved and never once impeded our use of the pool.

On a point of note which should highlight the wonderful service we recieved - We had a issue with a blown fuse on a Saturday night, we simply phoned the emergency number given to us by the owners in our arrival pack and could not believe that a electrician was at the apartment within 20 minutes of the call and repaired the damaged fuse, we simply could not fault any of this holiday experience one bit.

I hope you find this review helpful - this apartment and complex is wonderful, we will be returning next year for sure.

“Ok - but wont return”

Stayed in this property in July. It is situated on the promenade with a small balcony facing the ocean. While the apartment was clean we found it to be fairly basic. The things I did not like and why I would not recommend include:
the weather thankfully was very warm however it was very dificult to sleep. There were heavy duvets on the beds.The duvet covers were well used and covered in uncomfortable cotton balls. No bed sheets were provided so the only option was to sleep uncovered or use the heavy duvets.

Basic requirements such as toilet paper were not available on arrival. We arrived late at night, the shops were closed and found this very annoying

The area was quiet but the residents who seemed to arrive for the weekend were noisy and unfriendly.

The pool was nice and fairly quiet during the week . There were a total of 5 beach umbrellas. When the residents arrived on Friday -Mon the umbrellas and loungers were booked with towels all day long even though they were not poolside much of the day. In fact. there was an arguement one day between a resident and a tourist when the tourist tried to use an umbrella that was not in use. As a result we did not enjoy the pool at the weekend and spent the following weekend at the beach.. We found it a very unfriendly location.

Finally, we were advised our refund would be returned to us when we returned the keys. I had to wait 2 weeks for and email the owner three times before I was eventually refunded my deposit.

I think there are enough properties and nice places to rent and for that reason I would not recommend or stay at the above apartment again.

“Excellent property with wonderful sea views”

We had a wonderful holiday at No 10 starting from the shuttle service from the airport direct to the property. The property was well presented and very clean and right on the fairly quiet promenade. There were superb sea views especially the sunrises each morning providing excellent photographic opportunities.
The public bus service was very freguent so journies to nearby resorts quite easy.
It was very handy for the shops(food and other) and plenty of restaurants.
