“We had a lovely holiday. The accommodation was great for all the parties that came with me; everyone liked the apartments. Your property manager was very nice, helpful and friendly. There were a couple of teething problems when we first got into the apartments, but these were sorted out quickly. I feel in this day and age that people are quick to judge and write a bad comment but we had an enjoyable holiday. We did like the little touches for the accommodation as in ice blocks in the freezer and seats for the beach. Thanks again for an enjoyable holiday.”

“Great weather, great location and our 2nd year in a row in the same apartment. Perfect summer break. Fantastic local restaurants and superior sea views. If you have been self catering before then you will be happy with both the apartment facilities and the price of living in Spain at the moment. We lived like kings. We did the excursion to Isla de Bakara from the marina and it is a fantastic day out. Glass bottom boat with submarine vision, my little one loved it and Glorias restaurant on the island is well worth a visit. I have not gone all inclusive for 4 years now. Self catering is both cheaper and more rewarding for food and experience in comparison. Will be back next year, enjoy.”
