We stayed at this apartment in June 2016 it is fair to say the experience was most disappointing. The initial contact with the owner for the booking and paying of the appointment was easy and efficient and we rather hoped things would continue like this, unfortunately this was not the case. We were met by the agent and taken to the apartment he then took our money for the cleaning of the apartment. If we had realised how dirty the apartment was we would not have given him the money. Our first morning on holiday was spent washing the cutlery, glasses, dishes and pans before we could use them. There was also human and dog hair everywhere that needed sweeping up.
The main problem was the lack of shade, we asked the agent if there was an umbrella which we could use, we were told he would sort this out for us, unfortunately the umbrella didn’t materialise. We asked if there was a covering for the solarium again we waited and nothing appeared. The agent had no interest in helping us he would say what he thought we wanted to hear then ignore our requests. We were not being unreasonable we just wanted to be able to enjoy our stay at the apartment.
The apartment is large enough for 4, but it is set a long way from anywhere .We hired a car so we were able to spend days outside the complex, it was approx 3 miles from the apartment to the road. The pool is very close to the apartment but there are no loungers as they are not allowed, benches and chairs only!
If you don’t mind it being quiet with no atmosphere this might be the place for you.
Have just finished a 6 week stay at the apartment and cannot recommend it enough. Excellent facilities, full kitchen with oven, hob and microwave which means that you can keep to a budget if needed. Lots of places available to eat, including pub right behind the apartment (not that you would notice as noise was kept to a minimum). Pool right in front of apartment and very quiet which was surprising considering that we stayed during August! Excellent roof terrace with barbecue, so relaxing in the evening! Fantastic scenery nearby at the Sierra espuna mountains, as well as the beach at marrazon and also cartagena and murcia which have excellent shopping centres. Would highly recommend renting a car but if you just want to relax and stay by the pool you can get transfers from San Javier and alicante airport. Owner very very helpful and replied quickly and efficiently to any queries we had. Wouldn't hesitate to book again and will hopefully be back again next August!
