On the positive side the apartment was just as described, we were met by Lynn who really was extremely welcoming, courteous and helpful, we had arrived very late but Lynn was so friendly and had bought us milk and bread to get started next morning. It was great to have someone to call on too. The rooms were adeqaute in size, beds a lot more comfortable than we expected and definately more comfortable than a sofa couch! the showers were always hot and are great power showers. We didnt hear a sound from the Hindu temple only some singing on the Sunday. The complex is very quiet which was great because we were looking for a peaceful break. Paloma Park which includes Seaworld is directly across the road, there is a car boot sale there on a Wednesday and a market on a Friday, It was so handy. The town is a short walk uphill, supermarket Mercadona is less than a ten minute walk and the owners provide a trolley which is a godsend. The beach is a short distance downhill. Pubs and clubs are a taxi ride away my daughter and her boyfriend befriended a wonderful taxi driver who provided for us for the whole week I have his number if anyone is going to the apartment he was very fair with prices. Tivoli Worls amusement is nearby and the train station is within walking distance all inb all this apartment is in an excellent position.
The apartment was extremely clean which was great, cooking utensils, pots pans etc are provided for and the little oven worked really well. There is also a barbeque and one of the most positive aspects of the apartment is the side garden which allows privacy for the guests and we had our meals outside and enjoyed using the barbeque. The owners have provided pretty much everything that makes a break away from home more comfortable including books, cards, maps and suggestions for activities.
I noticed that someone had comaplined about the walk in shower being too small but realistically how much bigger could it be in an apartment of that size? Im not a posh spice and I had a little trouble getting in and out of the shower door but overall it was a very good shower and it was great having two showers to use.
I had also seen a little complaint about the beds however I have to say that whilst it would be lovely to have a home from home comfortable bed, the beds were okay, we all slept fairly well there was noise in my daughters bedroom one of the nights comning from the pipes but she didnt complain too much. To be honest, for the price, friendly welcome, the cleanliness, and the location there is very little on the downside of this apartment. On the third day the smaller shower hose broke the next day Lynn had replaced it with an entirely new one! That was great support and service.
I would definately recommend this apartment to friends, and would definately return. Thanks to Lynn and to the owners for providing a lovely apartment.
