Comfortable apartment in a central location

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit wary after reading mixed reviews of the apartment. However the water was hot all the time when we needed it and my wife is a marathon shower user, the apartment was clean as were the facilities. Bedroom was a little cramped with the bunk beds as well as the double but we only went in it to sleep. Many of the neighbours were long term residents or owners and were very welcoming. It was a 2 minute walk to the centre of things and lots of restaurants around offering good deals. 10 minute walk to the main beach. The town feels fresh and vibrant and it was only a 10 minute drive from the airport. The locals tip is not to book a transfer but get a taxi at the airport, it is cheaper and just as quick. can't finish without mentioning the chipmunks at the beach. Sit still and they will eat from your hand.

Castillo Mar Aptment

  • 3 of 5

We had been to the complex before so knew what to expect.The accommodation was to a reasonable standard and everything you need is supplied.I would suggest however that the bed linen needed renewing as it was far from acceptable and there was a need for a mattress protector.

The pool area was clean and well cared for but as happened at our last stay at the complex we had to put up with the sound of pnuematic drill as they carried out some repair work.If we had been told this work was to be carried out we would have booked alternative dates.

Owner's Response: Hello sorry about the noise in regards to the work but had no idea it was going on , if we know of any work carried out whilst guests are on vacation we notify them but this is not always the case depending on when we get notified . In regard to the bed cover not sure about that as the mattress is new , the linen should be all good . If they are not they should be replaced as there are many sheets there .i can only know this with guests telling me but I will get this sorted straight away .many thanks For the feedback as we like feedback to help and improve guests stay as much as we can . Regards Tracy & guests

Won't go back

  • 1 of 5

When you book a private apartment you expect certain standards :

1. Hot water. The boiler is only 15 litres - in normal words 1 person can not have a hot shower, let alone washing your hair. You then have to wait at least 30 minutes for more hot water before the next person can have a go.

2. The mattress - 1 of them is ok, the other is not therefore you will find yourself doing a rota system or 1 of you will definitely get no sleep.

3. The sofa should be comfortable so that if you fancy chilling out and reading you can. After 10 minutes on this sofa you have to move around.

To me none of the above Is acceptable.

The complex itself is lovely and quiet and I would recommend it, but definitely not this apartment unless it has some money spent on it to sort out the basic requirements.

Owner's Response: In regards to the hot water tank most duplexs have 15 litre tanks ,I have 3 children and have no problems with the water system ,that system is 5 months old and just been installed.in regard to the mattress , these cannot suit everyones requirements ie soft or hard depending on suits. lots of people have the same issue even when we go on vacation to other places we say the same . reason for a leather sofa is that we have had previous large sofas in material ,but you get guests who decide to put on tanning lotions etc whilst on the sofa which then in turn ruins the sofas and in turn to this we have had to change the sofas several times because once they are stained ,there is not a lot you can do with them apart from get rid of them .this is the reason for a leather sofas which can be cleaned more easy. The property will be undergoing many changes in the summer ie new complete beds wardrobes ,new bathroom suites ,tiling in bedroom and bathroom ,new tiling downstairs ,bunkbeds installed upstairs new large tv in bedroom ,4 hob ring downstairs cooker .2 new sofas and more . so they place will be completely different.
