The property looked lovely but it was cold and doesn't get the sun in January and February.

  • 2 of 5

It was really cold in the apartment and didn't have a duvet or enough blankets.

So we then had to buy some to try and stay warm. Also the electric kept tripping every time I cooked even when I turned off the heaters that we had to buy to try and stay warm. Even when it was warm outside the wind came straight through the gaps. I was very disappointed that I had asked upfront if it got the sun and was told yes but in January and February it doesn't get any sun. Shame as the furniture on the balcony was very nice but we never got to use it. We also had to buy utensils for cooking as I didn't feel it had the essentials.

Luckily enough we then managed to book another apartment which did get the sun and the wind didn't hit it in the same way. So although we still had days where it rained and was cold outside we were warm inside it also had duvets and blankets.

We never received any refund on lees apartment even though we had complained.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry Melanie was not happy at my apartment. She did initially ask about the sun on the balcony and I did explain it did not get the sun, especially in January and February when the sun is very low on the horizon (the Spanish design their properties this way to avoid the soaring heat in the summer). My balcony is more like a huge extension of the living room. Spain had the worst weather in 34 years in January and February this year. I'm sorry Melanie felt cold, but I do have air conditioning and heating in the lounge and both bedrooms. There is also a portable heater there if required too. I feel sad that Melanie was unhappy, but the only correspondence I had with her was to complain about the internet being down. The storms had damaged the satellite dish, but this was repaired and sorted within 24 hours. Melanie also complained that she wasn't allowed to use shampoo and wash her hair in the indoor pool. With regards the kitchen, I feel this is well stocked with all the utensils required (there are plenty there!). I have spare blankets at the apartment, and If Melanie had advised me she required more, I would have sorted that straight away for her. I am so sorry Melanie was unhappy, but she hadn't let me know and certainly hadn't complained to me, hence I was not able to offer her a refund as no such discussion ever took place. I never like to hear about a client being unhappy, but as you'll see over the past 12 years I've had some great reviews and many very happy holidaymakers! Thank You, Lee

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was immaculately clean and tidy. Situation is ideal as the caravan club restaurant is a short walk away, as is the supermarket and bars in the opposite direction. At the caravan club you can get a good quality meal or a selection of tasty tapas to eat in the sun. The balcony is more like an outside room and the biggest I have seen. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Nice apartment out of the sun. .

  • 3 of 5

The app. is just as shown on the pictures: nice, practical, clean.

The sea view is unfortunately blocked by a big building just in front of it, and the sun never hits the balcony or apartment or even the pool area (November) because the whole complex is so huge (9 storeys with hundreds of appartments).

If you don't need the sun the apartment is good value for the money.

Communication with owner and his representatives in Honda was excellent.

Brilliant

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic apartment in a lovely part of La Manga...so from the start of booking apartment Lee was great , answered all our questions & gave us all the information we needed & always got back to us straight away .So Playa Honda is a lovely area & complex was great just as described. The apartment was perfect & again as described , Balcony was lovely & big , we had English channels, a lovely comfortable couch & nice dinning table.There was plenty of dishes, cutlery ect , washing machine which was easy to use & on arrive the was milk , bread , coffee, tea bags , butter & a big bottle of water for us which was a nice touch after driving from Alicante airport . Also brilliant havin underground parking & lift straight outside apartment door ( if ya do a big shop ) There's a local supermarket 5 mins away but also a Mercadona, Aldi & Spar in Cabo De Palos which is 5 minutes drive away & the beaches there are to die for absolutely beautiful. There's a fab beach bar on Mar Menor staff was great . Myself and my Husband had an amazing 11 night's there & would highly recommend Lee's apartment & we are looking forward to returning in the future

Thank you Lee

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic little apartment, ideal for the four of us, with a lovely outside seating area. The apartment was clean and tidy upon arrival and well stocked with the essentials. Ann was very helpful and informative upon arrival and during our stay with any queries that arose, and before the stay great communication from Lee.

May well book again

Frosdick and Williams

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Playa Honda. We found it a bit tricky to get there,but the information supplied to us by Lee was really good. The apartment was spacious and comfortable. Everything you needed was supplied. (except bathing hats) which were needed for the pools. However these were easy to obtain. The area was quiet,due to the time of year. But we found some lovely places to eat and drink nearby. We will be returning in October all being well
