lovely apartment.great sea views.quiet location.Gemma was very friendly and helpful.would like to return next year.
Thanks Gemma for a great holiday.
Stayed here for 4 nights in November .The apartment is situated at the top of a hill on the Mont Benidorm complex.It is a very spacious,clean and well equipped apartment,very comfortable and we felt at home immediately.The balcony from the living room and bedroom overlooks the sea with stunning views of Benidorm to the left and the lovely little bay of Cala Finestrat to the right.There is a communal pool on the complex,however it was closed during our stay but as the beach was only about 5/10 mins away we spent our time there.There are lots of bars,restaurants and shops in the surrounding area and even though it was late in the season they were all still open.We hired a car during our visit but we also walked into Finestrat and Benidorm along the beach and also used the bus to explore.Cala Finestrat is a quiet place and the apartment is perfect for relaxing in a homely environment.The owner Gema was lovely,very friendly and eager for us to enjoy our stay,providing us with her home number in the event of any problems.It was excellent value for money and for the price of a hotel room you get the use of a full apartment .Just remember to factor in the charge for cleaning and a breakages deposit (fully refundable) Still great value.The apartments balcony attracts the seagulls and the problems associated with them but it's a small price to pay for the spectacular views.The only negative I could find was the bed was very hard (a personal thing)and not at all comfy but we found a few drinks helped us get a good nights sleep.(Any excuse).In summary a lovely apartment,stunning views and well worth the walk up the hill .
Myself and my wife wanted a quiet break in the sun without being surrounded by lots of buildings and traffic. This was a perfect choice, it was exactly what we wanted and the locals were really friendly. La Cala beach which is 10 minutes walk at most, is a beautiful inlet and a suntrap. It is very much a family oriented beach which would appeal to young families. The restaurants surrounding the beach are very friendly and nothing was too much bother, we felt welcome and relaxed very quickly. We had an excellent holiday and will most definitely be going back. My wife enjoyed it so much she was planning our next trip back as we sat on the plane heading home......that is the first time in all the holidays we have taken that we have done that. The apartment is as advertised....the only point of warning is the steep hill up to the apartment building but if you have a car it will not be an issue. We are runners and ran everyday and the hill did not stop us, it was just a challenge we enjoyed at the end of our run. Yep, I think the word you are searching for is MAD!! That is our only point of warning, but it was not an issue for us and I cant stress enough, the view is worth it!! Gema the owner is lovely, very friendly and nothing is any hasstle for her.
My wife and i ( in our 40's ) have just returned from El Barco, after a 4 night break that we really enjoyed.
The apartment was clean and tidy on arrival, with a good sized and well equiped kitchen/living area,also the bedroom and bathroom were spacious and well presented.
The living area and bedroom open out to a balcony with fabulous, uninterrupted views over La Cala, this is where we spent the sunny evenings with a glass or two of wine !
The main beach was a 7 min stroll, with the smaller beach 10 min walk away, with the only problem being the return walk back, which is all up a steep hill, although the owner recommends a car, i still enjoyed working up a thirst on the way home !
I found Gema, the owner, very helpful, from our initial enquirery and futher information, until the end of our stay.
