Guestbook comments from the owner
Holiday – 29.06.13 – 06.07.13
J & I had a really happy holiday.
Taxi driver Francisco was dependable, he was there to pick us up, even though we arrived more than 3.5 hours late as our original flight was cancelled, we eventually arrived at Los Patios at 12.30 am.
Your apartment is lovely and very comfortable and in such a great location with the pool so close (we didn't go to the other pool) and right next to the beach with all the cafes & restaurants. It was so relaxing sitting on the terrace having breakfast/ lunch etc and being able to pop back so easily when we got too hot. Also, we felt very safe inside the complex and in Torrox itself.
It was so interesting sitting on the beach among all the Spanish families. Even better that there were so few English tourists and that there were no English/Irish bars (well, I didn't see any) as in so many other 'not so Spanish' resorts'. J if off to study Spanish at university soon so she was able to practice her language skills quite a bit.
We had wonderful trips to Frigiliana, Torrox Pueblo & Nerja (including the caves -fabulous).
We had delicious meals in Torrox and in Frigiliana and tapas in Nerja, we both love seafood so we were spoilt for choice.
Thank you again and for all the additional information you sent/left.
Best wishes and thank you again
(We would definitely recommend your apartment/the resort to friends & family )
