“Spacious, very nice apartment”
Reviewed 22 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

people found this review helpful

Thankfully the apartment was spacious and comfortable, with an excellent bed and most amenities that one could ask for, because we spent a lot of time in it.
The view is good from the suite, however, it is on the backside of the building, so the best views are from the front suites, and some of the suites on the other side, where you see the full beach.
Unfortunately it gets a lot of traffic noise, (doesn't have double pane windows), and you hear dogs barking throughout the night. 20 floors up, the sound rises and you hear it all very clearly. We weren't even there during the busy season.
The location is excellent, halfway along the Malecon, so that you can walk to every "gringo" bar and restaurant.
What nobody tells you is that the cloudy season runs from May to November. We saw the sun only two days out of a 30 day stay from mid October to mid November. The rest of the time was high cloud, totally obscuring the sky and direct sunlight. If you are going to Salinas for a beach and sun vacation, you should think about going from December to April.
The pool is heated by the sun, so it wasn't even comfortable enough to enjoy.
The saving grace was the wonderful people we met, the great food we ate at Will's, Big Ralph's, Smokin BBQ, Lucy's, Sin, Happy Gringo, and many of the "Almuertzo" lunch restaurants along the street behind the Alamar.
The location is convenient to the Junior Comisario for grocery items. (Their prices are competitive to the bigger stores). There is also an excellent bakery two or three blocks from the grocery store.
Most merchants don't speak any English, so brush up on your Spanish. (strange for a tourist area). Don't take US bills over $20, because you will have a hard time cashing them.

I am so glad that you saw the positives of our wonderful condo. The view from all parts of the condo is spectacular; from the back side of the building there are unobstructed views of the Costa Brava...the other side of this peninsula that Salinas is on. There are some lovely views of the beach side from the side windows.
It is unfortunate that there was noise that disturbed you; if I had heard from you while you were there, I would have advised you to sleep in the second bedroom; which is very quiet.
As a result, we will be addressing the issue of putting thicker glass on the master bedroom windows. It is surprising that you can hear street noise at times 20 stories up but I do not doubt what you are saying.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review and give us feedback. Unfortunately, it is now published and you are the only review we have so far that is not 5 star. I am sorry we could not help you more when you were there.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 5 September 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This apartment had all the creature comforts. Beds were comfortable, well-equipped kitchen, great washer and dryer. There was DirecTV, games, videos. The views of the peninsula were phenomenal. The building is fabulous with 24 hour security, pool, gym, the works. It is conveniently located. Great place, great value!

This condo is spectacular in every way -- comfort, safety, location, view... you name it. It is luxuriously appointed and priced below the "best" hotels in the area. You can't go wrong here.

“THE PERFECT Salinas Spot!”

person found this review helpful

This wonderful home, is beyond the description given! You cannot find a better spot nor more gracious hosts.
The help before we got there (planned 8 months in advance) and while there was more than one could ask for. Simply put, the location, the creature comforts, views and overall total experience is as good as it gets.
As "seasoned" travelers we could not give higher marks than you will have at this truly spectacular condo.
Thank you David, We are eager to come back!
