Alison thanks for your review, we have recently updated a few things, one being full wifi now included for free at the apartment and the aircon is currently being trialled without meter. We would love to welcome you back at some time in the future.

“SUPERB COMPLEX & LOCATION”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a couple of issues on arrival. In our opinion the sofa was well passed its best and was sticky n dirty that we didn't even want to sit on it. Deborah (the property manager) remedied this by providing throws to cover it which helped greatly. There was thick dust on all the fans which had gathered over a long period of time and as we were expected to pay for cleaning we were extremely annoyed.

Apart from these initial problems which were dealt with promptly, I would definitely recommend this apartment. It is well stocked with everything you could possibly need, from a shopping trolley, loungers n chairs for the pool to buckets n spades and a buggy for young children. We cooked on a couple of occasions and the kitchen was also well kitted out. The complex is beautiful and very well cared for. The location is perfect and within close walking distance to the bars & restaurants. The beach is a wee bit further but well worth it as the 'Mar Menor' is a beautiful experience and very safe for young children. Wish I'd known about this when my girls were young. The owner, Gillian, was extremely attentive and always quick to respond to any queries or requests. I'm sure we'll be back.

Thank you for your comments. We have now replaced the sofa, ( didn't realise it was not ok). The fans get dusty within a week or so by the way, although they should be cleaned., but they must have been overlooked by mistake. So glad you loved the holiday, we do try to make everything as good as possible. Hope to hear from you again.

“Lovely Duplex”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Although the sun was shinning the duplex was cold to start with. This was probably as it hadnt been rented out the previous week so took a while to warm.The upstairs air con/heater is included in the price where as the downstairs ones are paid for via a coin meter at 1 hour 30 for 1 euro. The back bedroom heater once the money is in the slot will last for 2 hours if you press the heater button up 4 times.Even if you pause the coin meter (by pressing button B on the meter) the heater will continue to run until the 4 hours are finished at no extra cost. The property is close to beach and shops and restaurants. It contains al you need for a self catering holiday. Wifi needs to be switched on in the square and costs about 15 euros for a week. The complex is very secure. The pool was lovely but very cold. Even so my son and his fiance just had to get in. All in all a lovely week was had by all. The owners are very helpful wanting you to enjoy your stay.

“Ideal location for a relaxing, quiet, family holiday”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We have recently returned after a great stay at the Albatross apartments. It had been recommended to us by friends who return year after year and I can see why as it is just perfect for families with young children.
The weather was extremely hot (37 degrees) while we were there so a lot of time was spent in the onsite pool but we also walked to the square to eat out and the beach on several days.
The apartment is in a quiet location which was the most important thing for us as we still like to keep the children in some sort of routine whilst away. It was spacious and well equipped with washing machine and dishwasher plus added extras such as a beach tent, buckets and spades, loungers and even a push chair to use.
The kitchen was well equipped although we rarely ate in as it was so cheap to eat out and who wants to cook on holiday!
The beds were comfy and the corner sofa was great for chilling out on when it was too hot to venture out. We paid for wifi and it was quicker than we get at home, Sky tv and the DVD player were a bonus when the children were tired. The ceiling fans are a great addition although we felt the need to use the air con too (1€ lasts 1.5 hours)
It really is a lovely place to stay and Gillian is always at the end of the phone or email to answer any questions.
I would happily visit here again....and we've never returned to a holiday location more than once!

We travelled with two kids age 11 and 16 and gran too. Arranged pick up from airport with housekeeper and had pre arranged beach towels and wifi.
Great location 5 mins walk to main square for bars and food. Three large supermarkets within 10 mins walk.
Quite strict pool rules which suited us, no six crocs in pool! Lifeguards at pool.
Problem with washing machine noticed as we arrived and new machine was delivered next day.
Wifi and air con worked as expected. Great house in quiet complex.
Would definetly stay again.
