i booked this apartment for my wifes birthday. the owner arranged our transfers for 65 euro return. the taxi driver was very pleasant and handed us a bottle of water each upon our arrival. which was a very nice touch. when we reached our destination. the owner was waiting to greet us.
he showed us around the apartment and told us if there were any problems to contact him.
i had a problem with the safe and like his word when i contacted him he was there within 30 minutes to sort this small problem out.
when we walked into the apartment it was amazing. and what a view as jose opened the patio doors. everything in the apartment was spotless and everything was finished to a very high standard.
we had a short taxi ride to the local supermarkets aldi and lidl to buy our shopping.approx 7 euro in a taxi.
we cooked several times and eat out at the local resturants in the old town a few times. which was a 15 minute stroll away.
this apartment has absolutely everything you could wish for and provides free internet.
i would recommend this apartment to anybody and will be looking to return sometime soon.
nothing was to much trouble for the owner jose. we left a returnable deposit of £110 with the owner which was returned on our last day when the jose got in in touch with us to return our deposit and tell us about our return transfer details.
the marina area is amazing and was cheap to eat and drink.
the old town was very busy and we found several good eating places and bars.
a touch of class for a fraction of the price

The apartment was lovely and clean and in a great location at the marina. Where you could get all the boat trips and water sports, lovely restaurants an bars just down the steps from the apartment. Lifts in the apartment. Free Internet which was great. Only 10 min walk from old town which is buzzing, Very quiet at the marina so no problem sleeping. Also a safe in the apartment. The owner kindly arranged a taxi to pick us up and drop us back to the airport which was great and only cost us 65 euro return. Taxi man handed us both a bottle of water each when he picked us up from the airport which was very nice. The owner was very nice left his number and said for us to ring if we had any problems at all very friendly. Had a great holiday.

“Amazing apartment!!”

My husband and I stayed here on 17th May for two weeks. It truly was the best self catering holiday we have had and at amazing prices. Much better value than staying in normal holiday apartments or hotels.

We booked through Holiday Lettings and received our response from the owner Jose within 24 hours. He answered all our questions and arranged a private taxi for us which cost 62 euro return. This was excellent value for money as prevented us having to wait around for tour operators or dropping everyone else off. The driver had chilled water waiting for us and gave us advice on local attractions.

On arrival to the apartment we were greeted with a warm welcome by Jose. He spent time showing us around the apartment which was stunning and spotless. He very kindly put cold beers in the fridge for our arrival which we both felt was a really nice thought. He then drove us to the local supermarket where he was willing to wait on us while we picked up a few things. Jose leaves his phone number and is always available by phone or email if you need him. He arranged for cleaners to come three times during our stay and left fresh towels and changed our bedding. It was like having the luxury of a 5 star hotel but for a fraction of the price and better service!!!

The pool area is great and we had it to ourselves most of the time. The other people who live in the block are very friendly.

The location is perfect if you are looking for a quiet location where you can relax by the pool overlooking the marina without lots of loud music and people fighting for loungers. You can walk to fishermans beach in 15 minutes and hit the lovely atmosphere within the old town or you can chose to relax in one of the many restuarants along the marina right underneath your apartment.

The location is perfect for all moods. We got a taxi to the "strip" which has many bars and clubs open till the early hours. A taxi here will cost you 8 euro. The old town is great with live music, karaoke and clubs. You can walk it to here in 15 minutes or take a cab for 5 euro. We chose to walk as although steep hills, you get used to it and the views are amazing.

There is a supermarket 10 minutes walk away or a small shop across the road for small things such as bread, milk etc. We walked to Lidl and got a taxi back for 8 euro. We filled our fridge / freezer with food for lunch, dinner and bottles of wine which cost 2.50 euro!! This helped keep our cost down as having a fully fitted kitchen felt like a home away from home and it was nice to cook then eat your evening meal out on the balcony with a view onto the Marina. Absolutely perfect and meant that some nights we chose to stay in and watch a movie as the apartment was so comfortable.

We plan to return here for many years and after staying in a lot of different places this truly is the best!! Thanks to Jose and his fantastic service as we had a holiday to remember and cannot wait too return.
