Overview

About the property

Apartment in Vera Playa, Costa Almeria, Spain - Beautiful Location, Less Than 2km From The Beach

This apartment is well-equipped with all mod-cons including FREE WIFI (June-Sept, small fee may apply at other times) for an enjoyable, relaxing holiday at any time of the year. It is on the fourth floor (for which there is excellent lift access) with superb views for sitting on the terrace watching the sunset over the Med! Al Andalus Thalassa is in a beautiful location. The local sandy beach of Vera Playa is relaxing and yet with many amenities close by. Within a short drive you can experience many historical places full of typical Spanish charm. This coastline is stunning, the deep blue of the Mediterranean and the golden palm-lined beaches against the backdrop of the crisp, white buildings creates a picture postcard location. About half an hour along the coast you can find the Cabo de Gata National Park, with its secluded beaches and mountains, where you can see the most breathtaking views. In addition to all of this, the weather in this part of Spain is excellent. With over 300 days of sunshine a year its easy to enjoy such a beautiful place!

About Natasha Davies

We are a family of four living in Lincolnshire. My husband works in the recruitment industry and I work in the fashion industry. Both of our children are still in school.

Natasha Davies purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Natasha Davies chose Vera

After spending many holidays in Andalucia, when the children were babies, staying with my in-laws who have lived in the region for 15 years, we decided to buy a second-home for ourselves there. We chose the apartment at Al Andalus Thalassa because we loved the location. It's perfect for families needing a peaceful, relaxing holiday in the sun, whilst being close enough to bars, restaurants and "fun" facilities when you need them. We loved the complex as soon as we saw it, the style of the apartments inside and out, the pools, tennis courts and beautiful gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

The views from the terrace are stunning. We have watched the beautiful sunrise and sunset over the Mediterranean many times and every time is more stunning than the last! The pools and tennis courts on the complex and the proximity of the beach and the water park means there is always something to do. The added bonus of the spa and indoor pool in the winter months makes it a perfect choice all year round!

Nice apartment if a little out of way

  • 4 of 5

We were met as arranged at Consume supermarket, by Sylvia, and followed her to the complex.We parked in the underground car park,then took the lift up to the apartment.It was lovely and clean,nice furnishings,with plenty of towels & bedding.We were showed how to use the boiler,tv and AC,then told by Sylvia that she would be away from Thursday and the other person that helps her if she's not available was also away,so we would have to see ourselves out and put the keys in the envelope she provided in the post box at the security office at the entrance of the complex.This meant we would have no one in Spain to contact if we had a problem for 3days!

Although the view from the 4.5 floor was stunning,the balcony was very small,got very little sun (in May) and most evenings was too cold to sit out as it was too windy.The tv did not work on many U.K. Channels, we texted Sylvia regarding this and she said that it had changed, the channels were no longer free so it was limited what we could watch, which was very little!

A file with information regarding the appliances etc at the apartment would have been helpful.

The problem we did have was burning ourselves in the Shower (not en suite) as there isn't a shelve to put shampoo/shower gel on,so when you bend down to pick it up its easy to knock the hot tap ( not a mixer ) and change the water to scolding!

The complex looked quite tired and not in walking distance to any shops or restaurants,The swimming pool was ok but the not all the facilities were working, no Turkish bath ,smaller than it looks in photos,the changing rooms were not very clean and only 1 communal shower in the ladies worked.

Chairs to use at the beach would have been nice as in May the Pool area was not open,and as the summer season doesn't start until June, there were no sun beds to hire at the beach.

We did like the apartment but due to where the complex was and the small outside space would not return,but thanks for letting us stay at your apartment Natasha, we had a lovely holiday.

Owner's Response: I'm so pleased you had a great holiday and that you found the apartment lovely and clean, it's important to us that guests feel comfortable whilst on holiday. Sylvia manages our property extremely well, she had advised you that although she was away for the last few days of your stay, she was available by phone and the concierge would always assist if needed. I am also always available by phone and with my in-laws living nearby there's always someone around in case of emergency. I'm a little confused about the TV as with our new android box virtually all UK channels are available, plus many others from around the world. We will ensure that clear instructions are available to help our guests. There is a plastic stool in the shower room, using this may have prevented the difficulty in the shower, I have to say we've never found it a problem not having a shelf for shampoo and it's never been mentioned as a problem before. There are places nearby within a 5 minute walk, La Peperina is a lovely restaurant , plus Las Cositas, a small supermarket. I will pass on your comments about the spa to the complex management company, naturally this is out of my control but I know they respond very quickly to any maintenance issues. We used to provide beach chairs but unfortunately we often found them broken, or missing. We chose to buy this apartment because it's not in the middle of a noisy location, there are numerous shops, bars, restaurants etc within a short drive but with young children we wanted the guaranteed safety of a gated complex and the peace and tranquillity that it offers.

Lovely Apartment in good location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment while looking for a property to buy. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and equipped with everything you might need (only thing missing was a hairdryer) and a good wi fi connection. Lovely balcony with great views. Did not use the complex facilities as there was only one pool open and it was a fair distance from the apartment but we did have a look around and the complex is very well maintained. There is a supermarket close by and several restaurants in walking distance. A parking space comes with the apartment but might be a bit of a challenge if you have a big car - parking on the road outside is easy though. The owner was very easy to deal with and the person who met us was a good source of information on the area. I would highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay so much so that you bought your own apartment in the area! Naturally, the hairdryer was replaced. I'm also pleased that you found the apartment to meet your needs and my property manager and myself were only too happy to help where we could. Remember us to your friends and relatives and good luck with your new Spanish home!

Perfect

  • 4 of 5

We arrived, a girl friend and I, for a one week stay in the apartment. Never having been to this area before we were both totally amazed at how chilled out it was. We hired a car to enhance our stay in the area. The accommodation was superb, everything was there that we needed. The beach was a short drive away, as was the supermarket. All in all, a perfect stay for us for what we needed.

To summarise: comfortable, easy access to all areas, night life just a short drive away. Beaches, chill out bars, good seafood.

Very helpful villa management team.

Can't wait to book a return trip!

Thank you Natasha and Tony for making our stay truly wonderful.

Great apartment with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious, well equipped and has lovely balcony with great sea views. The complex is clean and tidy, and has a great pool with lifeguard just a short walk away. We would recommend having a car, especially with children to visit the local area including Mojacar, Garrucha, Parque Aquatico and the beaches. We had a really relaxing family with great weather.

Perfect family holiday

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we have holidayed on mainland Spain - we were looking for a relaxing family holiday but with enough to keep our 7 yr old daughter entertained. On reflection - that's exactly what we got.

The apartment is ideal for a family - clean, enough space and well equipped. The complex is well thought out - the apartment is at the top of the complex - and the two pools were the focus of many days. The pools and very clean with a lifeguard at all times.

The resort itself is ok - good bits : good shop close to the complex (but do hire a car), aquapark is great fun (get there early and hire a float is my advice) and the beaches are exceptionally clean. Only real downside was eating out in Playa Vera was not brilliant.

Few other points :

- Mojocar is a lovely village; good to visit and better places to eat

- Lots of restaurants on Mojacar Playa as well.

- don't worry about the nudist complex - we didn't see a single nude person on our stay.

- the resort is mostly Spanish - which we really enjoyed

- for scuba divers there is a centre in Mojacar which is excellent. Diving not bad for the Med either.

All in all, an ideal family holiday if you are looking for the classic sun, sea and relaxation.

Coast/Beach:

Vera Playa, less than 2km, has a beautiful sandy beach with friendly bars and restaurants, with an area for naturists too. The beach at Mojacar offers various activities and there are many "chiringuitas" (beach bars/restaurants) to stop at and sample the local delights! There are also children's play areas on most beaches. San Juan de los Terreros beach is an excellent choice for families as the sea here is very shallow and safe for small children.

Travel:

You can fly into Almeria (approx.45mins by car), or Murcia (approx.1 hr) or Alicante (approx. 1 and half hrs). The road network is excellent with very little traffic. We recommend you hire a car as there is so much to see and enjoy!

Distances:

Vera is an historic town, only 2km away, with shops and restaurants and a large weekly market it has something for everyone! The nearby town of Mojacar, a lovely typically Spanish white hill-top town, about 15 min drive,(which can be seen from the terrace) has many shops, restaurants and cafes with stunning panoramic views.

Further Details:

For families and thrill-seekers, the nearby Water Park is excellent and as our guest we offer the use of our discount card giving you discount here and at many other attractions, shops and restaurants.
