Homely, spacious and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean 2 bed apartment, with lots of storage space and a spacious balcony. Probably the best equipped apartment we have stayed in, plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans.

Thanks to Sue, the owner, for being so amenable with our change of plans.

There is a cafe/bar underneath the apartment which is very good. Free tapas with every drink ! And great quality food at a reasonable price. As we were here in January the pool was closed but the racket games were in full flow.

The walk down to the bay us about 10 minutes down and 15 mins back up coz it it a bit steep ! Remember to take a torch if you come back up in the dark.

All in all a very good week thank you.

Clean comfortable and well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

Access to beautiful community pool with bar and pretty gardens two minutes walk away a real asset. Went most days and it was never busy. Large balcony overlooking paddle courts not overlooked by other apartments. Off road car parking right outside door which is at the back of the apartment block and can be accessed without steps. Comfortably furnished, clean and well equipped for self catering. Communication, key collection, check in and out easy and flexible.

Perfect Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely clean and comfortable apartment, which has everything you need. Great pool and bar with relaxed, friendly atmosphere. My teenage boys enjoyed playing padel and we even ventured into the gym - once! Loved La Herradura for its range of inexpensive, good value restaurants and bars. Busy with mostly Spanish tourists, but not heaving. We went to Frigiliana which I highly recommend, a pretty hillside village with a beautiful sunset. Excellent road network making it easy to do a day trip to Granada. My boys also went scuba diving with Angel from Scuba Tropical and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very easy, relaxing holiday.

(Children 11 and 15 yrs) .The shared pool and cafe was delightful , very friendly staff and just a 2 minute walk away . We hired a car and found a great beach at punta de la mona , aswell as visiting Aqua tropic water park twice in nearby Almunecar ! A great holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it .

Girls holiday 2014

  • 5 of 5

I travelled with 3 other friends and stayed in the apartment for a week. It has all the essentials you need and is light, modern and ample room for us. We liked nothing more sitting on the balcony having a few drinks and a bite to eat. The pool area is fantastic with its own restaurant and bar very clean and tidy and people very friendly. Town of la herradura is quiet but plenty of restaurants and few bars and beach is good too. We would definitely go again we all loved it.
