“We just love it here”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

This was our third visit to the Castillo Mar. We really love the place. Everyone is so friendly whatever their nationality people always have time to good morning or hello. Some apartments are better maintained than others. Our apartment was equipped to a very high standard with air conditioning upstairs and down. There are a few locals who live in the complex and have cats and dogs but we didn't find them any problem. The swimming pool is currently not heated. It would be fantastic if the owners decided to heat the pool during the winter months. Apartments are centrally located with some good restaurants and bars within a short walk.

We will be back again next year.

Stayed October 2012, travelled as a couple

Nice swimming pool with a , great location in the town centre close both to sea path and beach . a few years a go the complex was a mess (2 stars from me) so it is good to see such a dramatic change - well done Phil and the management team !

Myself and family spent 2 weeks at 93 + 94 castillo mar in sept the apartments were lovely well equipped and spotless, The complex is really well looked after and the staff very friendly, The pools were great for the grandkids we could only get them out when they got hungry, The location is ideal very close to restaraunts, shops and bars all within walking distance and so is the superb beach a golden horse shoe shape with shallow water great for children. Thanks sonia for a lovely holiday looking forward to going back next year. Barry and family.

Room Tip: 93 + 94 are in perfect position close to the pool but still private.

We have just returned from a week's holiday at Castillo Mar. The apartment we stayed in was just by the pool. Perfect location for shops/restaurants/coastal walks/beach. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. There is a lovely porch to the front of the apartment with a table and 4 chairs and a little back yard (where washing machine is kept) which has 2 sun loungers, and a small table with 2 chairs. There are a few stray cats around but i see those as a good thing - if there are cats there then there shouldn't be any mice!! The residents are all very friendly and willing to help you if needed (i.e. recommending restaurants!). It was so easy to book the apartment and we will certainly be returning to Castillo Mar next year.

Room Tip: Our apartment was just by the pool, perfect location :o)

Number 5 Castillo Mar.
Our first impression of number 5 Castillo Mar was very bad; on arrival we were greeted by chairs that were ripped and threadbare before we even got inside, this made us feel ashamed to be staying there. Once inside the whole place had a shoddy feel about it and the windows were dirty and smeared. It was made worse by the fact that the downstairs toilet wasn’t working and when we went to go outside, the backdoor handle dropped onto the floor! We didn’t expect 5 star accommodation but at the very least we expected it to be clean, and it wasn’t. If we had only booked for a week we would not have stayed, but we were a long time stay so had to make the most of it.
The cockroach problem was awful. My husband had a cockroach crawling up his back and also one crawling up his arm. I experienced one dropping off the wall onto the table while I was eating and refused to eat downstairs again for the whole of our stay. We found no cockroaches upstairs. Even after extensive spraying we still had about two or three a night. To try and get rid of them we looked up what to do on the Internet. We read that the first step was to make the place immaculately clean, and as I have already said it wasn’t, and also to fill any holes so that they couldn’t get in. We set about cleaning the place properly – cleaning cupboards and scrubbing the doors, scrubbing the toilet door and frame, which was really dirty. We pulled all the furniture into the middle of the room and scrubbed the floor – again it was very dirty behind and on top of the freezer. As my husband was scrubbing the floor the kick board came away from the kitchen units. Under there can only be described as filthy! We counted 15 cockroaches in various stages from dead, dying or alive, it was horrible! At this point my husband phoned the agent to complain.
We felt the holiday wasn’t organized properly either. We were booked for 2 months and weren’t even given a change of sheets or towels, we had to phone and ask for them. We had to have workmen out twice to mend the upstairs toilet, the cistern was held together with a plastic bottle top! And two days before we were due to return the cooker stopped working. We spent over 50 euros on cleaning materials and cockroach spray, plus clothes to disinfect and plug up the holes.
The place did have some good points, the washing machine, freezer and full oven were all good and no complaints about the upstairs, which had a lovely balcony. It was also in a good position, close to the pool and sun bathing area. But the rest of it was bad and the whole of the downstairs was in need of decorating. The worse parts being the cockroaches, the dirt and the ripped up chairs. This was not as seen, or described on Owner’s Direct.
Don’t let this one holiday letting put you off staying at Castillo Mar, there were some really nice units. I personally was shown around numbers 4,6,7 and 70, which were all really nice. The people were so nice too and very helpful – thanks go to Jimmy for mending the door handle. The pool was nice and never crowded and they have a good selection of books in a library at the side of the reception area. It was quiet and felt secure at night; it was also close to shops and restaurants, but be careful which accommodation you choose.
