just arrived back from 10 days here and its in a great location pool is great very near to 2 super markets and loads of bars and resteraunts all 5 min walk away and a lovely beach 10 min walk, the only issues we had really is there is a tv but doesnt work, although you can play dvds on it just no tv reception, our little girl was ok with dvds but could be a problem for others who love cartoons or the like, there are 4 ceiling fans only 1 works properly the other 3 are useless and no aircon which is a major problem in that heat, also an oven tray would have been nice, apart from that its a nice place with lovely people, mark and shirley who manage the place are lovely and john and his wife lovely people also and will help out in any way they can, they lent us an air cooler free of charge, it wasnt aircon but did help a little. i saw a portable aircon unit in super market for 200 euros and very nearly bought it my self, i think the owner needs to consider this as i would gladly pay for the usage costs
all in all a nice place with lovely people as neighbours and lovely and quiet with all you need near by.
if the aircon situation is sorted out i would gladly return and recommend no problem.

We drove to the property from Alicante airport in under an hour the directions provided were absolutely spot on! Shirley was there to meet and greet and showed us around the property and made us feel really welcome. The apartment was exactly as described, and ideal for our party of three adults. It was clean and tidy and had all the fixtures and fittings youd expect. The balcony gave great views over the rooftops to the sea beyond, and the sunbeds provided were certainly well used in the week we were there! The apartment complex has a swimming pool and quiet shady garden area. The pool was scrupulously clean and the garden nicely laid out and well maintained. We used the local shops practically every day a 5-minute drive / 15 minute walk gets you to supermarkets, farmacia and a selec tion of bars and restaurants. Another 5 or 10 mintues stroll and you reach the beach at Punta Prima. Certainly a quick and easy drive, and easily walkable. All in all a great value apartment in a quiet development.

My friend and I stayed at this property for 1 week and had a great time. The location was good for us being only 10-15 mins walk from the main area of Punta Prima which has a Supermarket and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. You can also get a bus from this area into Torrevieja.
The property has a nice communual garden and pool area and a sea view from the terrace. We found the neighbours are very helpful and friendly. As previous reviewers have said, the photos dont do it justice. Good value for money and I would definately recommend to friends or family.

the pics of this apartment dont do it justice at all,this apartment without a shadow of a doubt was the best valued holiday base i/weve ever been to,excellent service from mark and shirley (the people that maintain all the apartments,(good value airport transfers,you wont get cheaper)i would recomend hiring a car as flamenca and commercialised places are a good walk however punta prima were the apartment has plenty of bars/resturants etc.location is not for families is a couples place.

Apt. spacious and well laid out - balcony lovely and the pool was great. Convenient for shops, restaurants, main roads etc.
However it wasnt very clean, cooker and fridge had obviously never been cleaned and it was very dusty. My husband cleaned the windows which were very dirty.
A few improvements would make this a great place - a tin opener, bottle opener, chopping board, salad/fruit bowl. Most of all some decent pillows! There was no safe in the bedroom although we were told there was(unless it was very well hidden!) also no key for swimming pool(we had to be let in by other guests)
Were sorry that the apartment was not very clean, we will make sure that it is cleaned properly before our next guests arrive. Also we will make sure the items you mentioned are supplied for the next guest (tin opener, bottle opener, chopping board, salad/fruit bowl, decent pillows, key for swimming pool). There is a safe in the apartment, it is in the floor of the wardrobe.
Again all i can do is offer our apologies.

I thought the apartment was very spacious, which was good with a boistrous three year old. The lay out of the apartment was good and I liked the fact it had a washing machine and an iron. The bathrroom was very good ... a choice of bath and shower. The bedrooms were adequate with plenty of storage. The apartment was modern and clean.
On the down side the table in the lounge was very unstable which was no good with a small child. The balcony plastic table was broken at the edge with a very sharp broken side that my son ran into and hurt his chest on. The kitchen has no breakfast bowls, chopping board or tin opener. However, the oven worked ok and fridge/freezer was spacious.
While we were there the pool was closed due to a leak. This meant we could noat access it for 3 days. This was a huge disappontment for my son, but obiously it was nobodys fault and just unfortunate.
The reason I would only rate the apartment as fair is beacuse of its location. It was hard to find and we found the area far too touristy with not enough to do with a toddler. The nearest beach was nt great but there were better ones up the road. The apartment itself was adequate. The pool was the best bit and there were plenty of supermarkets in the area. You could not stay in this area without a car.
If I went to spain again I would want to see the real Spain and not be in such a touristy area where everything is so over priced.

This apartment was certainly much better than the pictures led us to believe so was very pleased!! It is in an ideal location if you want to relax during the day as the pool is marvellous, the people that live in the area are extremely welcoming and always on hand if you wanted to know where anything was or for decent restaurants!
We usually hire a car when visiting this area but for the 1st time this year we decided not too, we had some wonderful walks visiting the different beaches, which i have to say have certainly improved since our last visit! There are lots of lovely places to eat in the area with just a 10-15 minute walk which was brilliant.
There was nothing i could fault, we had a simply wonderful time!
VALUE FOR MONEY THIS CERTAINLY IS!!!!
