About Martin Rosbotham

As a kid we holidayed in Spain every year and eventually we got used to the spanish way of life.

I love the pool and most days it is like having your own pool in your garden.

We eat out every night as the restaurants are very good and reasonbly priced.

Over the years we have many fun packed holidays in Albir watching our kids grow up and meeting many good friends.

Martin Rosbotham purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Martin Rosbotham chose Benidorm Area

We bought the apartment due to all the family loving the sea and sun and thought we would benefit over the years having somewhere of our own.

albir has good warm temperature all year round and is central to all major towns and villages for exploring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Elaine (43) and Steve (51) (Gt Yar Feb 11)

Would we come to apartment again? No. But only because we have moved to Albir. Would we recommend it? Yes without hesitation. The apartment complex is very nice with well maintained gardens and a lovely pool. The apartment itself is lovely, it feels like a home, furnished to the owners taste and specifically for this apartment. It is also fully equipped with everything you could need and more besides. We genuinely self catered throughout - how often have you been self catering to find it consisting of a toaster if your lucky - not so here. I would imagine that the books, DVDs, CDs and games are for the owners convenience, but leaving them all out for the guests is a nice touch and again made the place like real home. All in all a very good stay. Elaine.



Maureen and Dave (Apr 11) Thanks. We had a wonderful time.



Mr and Mrs Morrow (June 11) We had a fantastic time. come again soon, Thanks

Location

Coast/Beach:

The beach is approx a 10 min walk from the apartment. It is a level walk in the main with no steep hills. The beach is perfect for those lazy days or for more energetic amongst us. Bars and Restaurants line the beach front so you don't have to go far for drinks and lunch.

In the evening during the summer months the beach hosts many events such as the famous film festival and musical events. Craft fairs are very often found selling some original Spanish craft.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Alicante approx 40km. Car is not essential as shops, bars, restaurants are all in walking distance. Altea and Benidorm have good public transport links and are clean and reliable. You can get public transport also now from the Airport dependant on your budget. Please ask for details.

A new train terminal has just been completed which is about a 10 min walk from the apartment which gives you good cheap access to all the Alicante/Denia coastal route.

Distances:

The picturesque town of Altea is a 10 min bus ride or a stroll down the beach promenade will take a little longer but worth the walk. Benidorm is approx 20 min by bus or 10 min by taxi.

Further Details:

The apartment is well situated for all services and minutes walk from excellent restaurants, cafes, banks and supermarkets.

terra mitica (theme park), aqualandia (water park), mundomar (marine animal attraction), terra natura (safari park), excaliber castle (medieval theme venue) to name but a few attractions within easy reach.

other more relaxing excursions such as algar falls, the rock of ifach and the caves of canelobre for the more may be more suitable to some.

jet ski and water sports are available on the playa del albir.

The traditional town of altea is a walk down the esplanade from albir passing the old harbour. The evening in altea is particular attractive with all the old cobbled narrow streets where the houses are nearly touching each other. The alleyways come alive with shops and restaurants where you can while away the evening. All the street seem to lead to the historic church with the famous blue tile domed roof within a square full of cosmopolitan restaurants and cafes.

Guadalest is a famous hilltop fortified village up in the hills and well worth a ride out.

Valencia is particulary attractive city with its traditional spanish architecture and easily reached for a days visit.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

very clean and comfortable, everything you need and only 10 minute walk to the beach - had the pool pretty much to ourselves all week

Plenty to do in Albir but only a short ride to Benidorm or any of the theme parks nearby! Loved it

Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed in this apartment for a week. The apartment is well equipped and on a lovely complex. It's well positioned for shops and restaurants and a lovely stroll to the sea front. Albir is a special resort and the promenade is lovely especially in the evening with some wonderful restaurants overlooking the beach. Altea and Benidorm are easily accessed by the number 10 bus outside the apartment. We liked it so much we've already booked for next year for two weeks.

Great appartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed 14 days in this very nice and clean, 2 floor, appartment. First floor, reached by stairs outside and front balcony, living room, 1 small bedroom with 2 single beds and plenty of storage, kitchen with enough equipment and storage. 2nd floor bathroom with toilet, balcony, big bedroom with double bed (very comfortable bed). The garden is very well kept and the swimming pool is beautifull, clean and quiet. Two private sunbeds are available. Every thing you need is available. The appartment is very well positined in the mainstreet with plenty of shops and restaurants. Big Supermarket across the street and busstops too. Very easy to reach but the area is not noisy. If you walk through the mainstreet towards the beach you will pass many shops and before you know it you reach the sea. (about 10 minutes) The Wifi is strong. On the frontside to your left aprox 500m. you can rent bikes for 8 euro's a day. Both Albir and Altea are great and offer a lot. I strongly recommend this property.

Fantasic week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful apartment during the last week of August 2016. We had a fantastic week. The apartment is excellent and as described. There was loads of storage, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, lovely sitting/dining room - everything was immaculate. The complex was lovely and felt very safe and secure. The pool was fantastic and our 13 year old daughter, who is a keen swimmer loved it. There is a cafe bar just outside which was great for breakfast some mornings. There is a great supermarket across the road and a Lidl close by. Although the kitchen is fully equipped for self catering we ate out every evening. Albir and Altea has a great range of restaurants and we had lovely meals out. The no. 10 bus just outside the apartment takes you to Benidorm one way and Altea the other. Buses were regular and great for getting around. Communication with the owner was very straightforward and easy. We loved Albir and the surrounding area and hope to book this apartment again in the future.
