This was such an easy holiday!
Communication with Janie the owner was excellent beforehand and we liaised with the local housekeepers Sue and Ed to meet us at Las Dunas. They let us into the property early as it had been vacated a few days before and there was milk and tea bags to get us started.
The appartment is lovely and clean and has everything you could possibly need.
The outside space is fantastic being spacious and private yet just through the gate you have access to the pool and gardens which are well maintained. This would be ideal for families with young children.
But the real beauty of Las Dunas is its location being just a stones throw to the arenal with its restaurants and bars and beautiful sandy beach. Here there is everything from fine dining to burgers, great bars and lovely patisseries, ice cream parlours and shops.
What a great find!
We had a wonderful week at Las Dunas, the apartment is very clean good size and well equipped absolutely everything has been thought of even things for the fantastic swimming pool which is huge and easily accessed from the private veranda (with comfortable dining seats & table with another seating area to relax) by simply opening your gate a few steps and you are in the pool which was lovely and warm when we were there in late August
We did hire a car although this is not necessary as Arenal is a minutes walk with great bars, lovely restaurants and the beach which is a must it's a great clean family beach and the water sports facility's are fantastic.
We also had a go at go-karting only a 5 minute drive this was also great fun.
The apartment is very comfortable with two bathrooms (bonus with two teenagers) well equipped kitchen, great wifi lots of English TV channels available and the secure private parking space right outside
We arrived early and the lovely housekeepers allowed us in so we could have a dip in the pool before unpacking
Thank you for a great holiday, we can not wait to come back again next year
The owner Janie was amazing, giving lots of tips and handy information even details of airport transfers.
The apartment was in a great location, with the pool virtually by the apartment gate, and just a stones throw away from a child safe sandy beach. Every detail was covered for a stress free break, the apartment was well equipped even down to pool woggles and a shopping trolley. Arenal promenade is packed with great restaurants, however do venture out to the port and try the roof top restaurant. The resort has everything at hand, ideal for families with young children, I will definitely be bringing my grandchildren next time.
If you are looking for a well equipped and comfortable apartment in a quiet and select resort this is the place!
With the large pool feet from the patio and the beautifully clean and gently sloping beach two minutes away it offers those who like a lazy laid back holiday all they need. Water sports a speciality.
I would highly recommend hiring a car, though, as walking up hill into the Old Town is not a option in the summer heat. Places of interest in other towns and beauty spots are not walkable. And there are many! Hire a car if you need to do more than sit by the pool or on the beach.
The resort is lovely with heaps of bars and restaurants catering for the army of Brit ex pats who live along this stretch of the coastline. No Benidorm here, however. It maintains a lively atmosphere without losing quiet respectability. I can recommend highly the beach club La Siesta between Arenal Beach and the port and the panaderia at the back of the beach parade. Wonderful coffee, breakfasts and cake. Try their empanadas!
If there are any suggestions to be made to improve a holiday at Las Dunas it would be to install air conditioning. Ceiling fans are totally inadequate in June July and August. May be ok without in the winter but a definite requirement in the summer. Affected my sleep adversely!
We came the first week in may, was very quiet in the complex, not many people around yet. We were greeted at the airport by the owners housekeepers, both very friendly and helpful.
The apartment was lovely and clean, great location for beach and restaurants, local bus stop only a 2 min walk. Pool outside the back door was great. Everything you could think of needing for the week was in the apartment, very well equipped, and the owners are very helpful. A lot of effort goes in to making sure you enjoy your time there. A nice added touch :)
Will definitely be returning. Had a lovely stay, relaxing and quiet. Just what was needed. Thank you.
We - two adults and two children - stayed at Las Dunas for a week in July 2016. This place is exactly as it is described - a perfect location and a perfect place for you to stay and simply relax enjoying the proximity of the pool, the restaurants, the beach and the entire town of Javea. This became one of our favourite locations in Spain and we can't wait to come back in 2017 and relax once more.
The apartment has everything one may need and the large terrace adjoining the entrance to the pool is absolutely perfect. If you add the ultra friendly owner - Janie - to the equation you'll get your perfect holiday spot in Spain.
Thanks and we're looking forward to more:) !
We stayed at the Las Dunas apartment in August for a short five day break and we would recommend it to any body looking for a great location.The appartment is well equipped with everything you need for your self catering holiday,even little things you may not have thought of like a cool bag and ice packs for the beach,internet wifi and uk Tv stations.
With the pool being suitable for all ages and three steps from the appartment it's ideal for a nice swim before you can walk out of the complex(which is security gated with your own key so compleatly safe)and within five minutes you are on the sea front which has a great selection of restaurants to choose from you will be spoilt
for choice, we went out every night and because of the location we didn't have the normal problems of finding somewhere to park!.We could also both have a drink and a even slower walk back without any worries.
If you love water sports then you only have to vist the beach (five minute walk!)and you can rent High powered speed boats or jet ski or if you like a thrill the stunt power boat.If that's not for you just relax on the sandy beach and try a pedalos with a slide on!
After a trip in the speed boats you could have a drive out and discover the beautiful coast line.
We will be defiantly staying at the Las Dunas again very soon.
