About Andrew Lennon

Hi, we are a family of 4 from the North West of England. We bought our apartment in 2006 so that we could enjoy family holidays in the Spanish sun.

Andrew Lennon purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Andrew Lennon chose Orihuela

We chose the apartment for the afternoon and evening sunshine as it is west facing and on the quieter side of the complex. It also boasts a view over one of the swimming pools, allowing us to keep an eye on the children enjoying themselves in the pool and garden, while we relax on the balcony with a good book and glass of the excellent local vino. The complex is secure and safe, the surrounding area is lively without being rowdy. The apartment itself is very quiet in the evenings.

What makes this apartment unique

Everything you could possibly want on holiday is in walking distance. Or if you prefer the road network is excellent and there are plenty things to do and see if you hire a car, from superb golf courses, scuba diving, aqua parks, horse riding to name but a few.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

Love La Calma, really good location short walk to shops, bars, restaurants and beach. The apartment was lovely and clean and was fully equipped with all you would need for a self catering holiday. Andy the agent was brilliant. I forgot my passports in the apartment and he raced all the way to the airport for me so I never missed my flight. Would recommend.

Disappointing will not be booking again.

Apartment was shabby in comparison to others I've stayed in. The beds were metal uncomfortable and very noisy, bedding was sparse one very flat pillow each.Shower curtain was disgusting very disappointing as the owner was quite helpful when booking.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the comments which I've taken on board and hopefully resolved. I have spoken to my agent and this should not have happened in the first place and will not happen again. Bedding, towels and shower curtains were all replaced on receipt of the review. I have also replaced all the beds and mattresses; there is now a brand new double bed in the master bedroom and 2 new single beds in the second room. Please note my agent lives on site, is easily contactable and will address any issues or problems as soon as possible.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

Had a great holiday at this apartment. It is bright, clean, spacious and everything that we could want for a relaxing time in Playa Flamenca. We have stayed in the area before and that's why we wanted to return. Great location for supermarkets, bars and restaurants. The beach is a 20min walk away and the apartment complex has no shortage of pools to enjoy. Was lovely to be able to sit outside on the balcony in the morning as you weren't in the direct sun, that comes in the afternoon. Would recommend this apartment for couples and families.

Service and communication with Andrew was excellent as well, thank you.
