Guestbook comments from the owner

Kirsten, Surrey "Ideal"

The apartment is ideally set up for a young family providing adequate accommodation for four of us and a baby. The apartment overlooks the pool area (includes smaller pool for younger children) so it was easy to keep an eye on everybody at the same time. Alternatively it is only a 10 minute walk to the large spacious beach which is never busy even at peak season. There is plenty to do in the evenings, browsing the many bars, shops, restaurants and children's' play parks. Walking along a further 20 minutes will lead you into the Urbanization (the main town area) with an even wider range of evening entertainment. There is a super fun fair for the kids that really comes alive after dark.

If you hire a car you have a choice of visiting many other attractions. The local waterpark is only 10 minutes away or if you fancy a drive exploring the mountains there is a wild west park that my kids really enjoyed eventhough many of the shows were in Spanish.

The larger supermarkets and main shopping centre are a 5-10min drive or there is a local convenience store 5 minutes walk away.

The location of this apartment, its facilities and local amenities meant that, as a family, we could enjoy a relaxing, stress-free, entertaining holiday. We will be going back for a third time this year and don't hesitate to recommend it to our friends.

Emily, Cornwall "Excellent"

I travelled with a friend and 2 children and we were all really happy with the apartment. It was within a secure locked complex with a lovely pool which the balcony over looked. We enjoyed trips to the near by beach and enjoyed walking around the town. Overall a lovely apartment, I would recommend it.

We found the directions difficult to follow so we had to get the property manager to meet us which he kindly did. We found the property to be very run down & unclean. Mop bucket was full of dirty water, the sofa was shedding bits off the plastic cover, bedding & throws were stained, cutlery & crockery had to all be washed before use. But worse was the bathroom which was sticky, both the bath & toilet had to be scrubbed, there was no toilet paper or cleaning materials. The final straw was when I was almost attacked getting out of the lift by bulldog, this in an apartment block that is supposed to be dog free. So we left after only 15 days of a 31 day booking and found alternative accommodation. When we contacted the owner we found her to be unsympathetic and unhelpful. We would not recommend this apartment in the state it is in to anyone.

Owner's Response: We were very shocked to see these comments; when my manager met the guests they were very pleased with the apartment and the cleanliness. It was more than 2 weeks later that the guests said that they wanted to leave and only then did they mention any issues. They could have called our manager at any time if they had had a problem. There are no dogs allowed in our apartment, or in the communal grounds, but the complex itself isnt "dog free" and I'm afraid that we really cannot be held responsible for the behaviour of other people's dogs. We feel that these guests wanted to leave due to personal circumstances, and thought they would try to get a refund. As we had already offered an extremely cheap rate for the month we were unable to do that. On top of that, when my manager inspected the apartment after these guests had left, she found that they had left it in a very untidy state, with the gentleman having seemingly cut his hair in the corner of the room and left it there!! After fastidious cleaning after these guests left, the apartment is is a perfect state to be let out, and we have had many happy guests throughout the year.

Premièrement, nous arrivons à 14h30 , j appelle alors l agence gestionnaire pour récupérer les clés et là on nous dit pas avant 19h00 car nous avions indiqué entre 17 et 19h.

Alors que l appartement était libre. Nous avons quand même des enfants en bas âges ! Aucun effort de l agence qui en plus nous a fait un accueil exécrable, aucun effort pour parler français seulement anglais !

Il faut vraiment donner l heure exacte d arrivée sinon si vous arrivez avant vous ne pourrez pas entrer , et tout retard sera facturé par heure supplémentaire.

Deuxième surprise on se résigne à attendre .

on se dit on va se baigner à la piscine de l appartement et voilà qu elle est fermée entre 15 et 17h chose que nous a pas mentionné la propriétaire.

Bref nous allons à la plage, et là encore nous découvrons plage de cailloux or la propriétaire nous avait dit que c était une place de sable pour les enfants !

Bon on se dit c est terminé

Nous arrivons à l appartement et là les jetés de canapés sentent pas bons du tout nous les retirons et les canapés en cuir sont tout déchirés.

Nous nous posons et les bruits de canons à oiseaux s enchaînent ! quel fléau !

Et pour couronner le tout une retenue sur la caution: le prétexte les appels de l agence alors que c est nous qui avons émis les appels!

Nous vous déconseillons fortement cette location

From the Owner

There is plenty to do for all the family, with playparks on the beach, a long promenade with stalls and entertainments in the Summer, and fantastic tapas bars and seafood restaurants. The beach runs the length of the town, so is seldom crowded, and is just a 5 minute walk from the apartment.
