Would definitely go back to gran alacant. And most definitely try and get same apartment as very homely. Everything you needed it had. I wouldn't change anything about it. Location was spot on very friendly and welcoming place. The surrounding areas of the complex are well maintained also. I will be recommending to family and friends. I will definitely try and book again in the future.

We stayed in the property for 2 weeks. It was first class and the roof terrace and the furniture

provided was terrific. Would have no hesitation in recommending this property.

Ideal location for a short break

  • 5 of 5

First the owner arranged a pick up from the airport which was really helpful. Location was good for long walks. Plenty of choices of places to eat. Accommodation was very good and clean. Beds could have been a bit more comfortable.

Owner's Response: Pleased you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment. We looked into the problem of the bed as we've never had any complaints before and found that the mattress topper plus duvet had been removed and stored away! why I don't know. Beds are very difficult to get right for guests as some like them soft and some firm. We appreciate positive comments and as the mattresses are now over 8 years old have changed them for sprung/ memory foam ones with a topper - lovely!

A family of 4 - late booking

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from almost a weeks stay at this fabulous apartment in Gran Alacant. It has everything you need and more. We are a small family with 2 young children (aged 5 & 7) and have had a great time. The facilities are brilliant and the apartment is located on a very secure gated complex. Access to the shops is minutes away and the beach is a 10 minute walk away. The complex is located 15-20 minute drive from Alicante airport. The owner provided us with a reliable English speaking taxi driver who collected us and returned us to the airport for a reasonable price. The facilities are that good we will definitely be returning as soon as we can.

Ideal location.

  • 4 of 5

We have just enjoyed a lovely stay at this apartment, there was everything you needed and Steve was extremely helpful.

The weather was brilliant and we enjoyed a lot of time on the beach and swimming in the sea which was just a short walk away. Visited a couple of the local restaurants which didn't disappoint.

It is several years since we visited the area and it was lovely to come back .
