Fabulous, yet again!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at this apartment. It really has everything you could want for a relaxing holiday which caters for everyone. Our boys aged 8 & 6 enjoyed the pool - which is open until 10pm, a God send in the hot weather! Good wifi access is also an added bonus. The apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival and we could not fault anything; the location is also perfect - the beach is within walking distance as are the local bars and restaurants. Also, only a short walk to the bus stops and land train when we wanted to venture further afield. The apartment is perfect for both families or just adults. As mentioned previously, we have stayed here 3 times now and we are already planning on coming back next year, we really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

  • 5 of 5

Really quiet area, so peaceful, beautiful pool. We spent a lot of time at nearby bars and restaurants which were a very short walk away. We used ' train' to go into centre for food shop at Mercodona. Got bus to Alicante for the day, everything was so easy as we just wanted to relax and chill. Spoke to owner Steve few times, he is such a lovely, lovely understanding man and I would recommend this apartment to my family and friends.

Great holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our holiday at this lovely apartment. It has all the things you need for a relaxing holiday with nothing to worry about. There are all the essentials you need along with terrific views of the surrounding area including the sea, from the roof terrace. Steve could not have been more helpful.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this apartment a couple of times before and is a perfect location for a quick holiday. We've always found the owner to be very helpful with advice on the area, how to get about etc and organising a taxi from the airport, he also supplies excellent information on the apartment, restaurant, buses etc. The apartment is well laid out, clean, tidy, bright and well equipped. The downstairs balcony is a perfect place to sit and watch the world go by. The roof garden is private and catches the sun quite well (although it was March), I should think in the summer it's a real sun trap. The location was ideal for us with restaurants and the beach close by where we had some wonderful walks along it. Los Arenales is a short walk away, Santa Pola and Alicante can be reach easily by bus. All in all an excellent holiday and we will be going again.
