A Two week stay in February
A spacious and elegant apartment in a modern prestige development. We particularly liked the large lounge with comfortable sofas and flat screen TV (with UK channels). The patio/balcony was lovely and we had many meals outside, but as the sun did not reach there until mid afternoon it was on occasions a bit chilly during our February visit.
The location is really too far from the beach to walk if you had any mobility problems, and we would therefore recommend a car from day one. However, beware the garage! It is full of square columns and parking is something of a dressage exercise. Apart from the beach distance, the car also helped with shopping as the property is on a steep hill which made carrying bags difficult. The lift from the bottom door of the complex is half way up the hill, which helps, but it is still a fair walk from the lift through the pool area to the apartment. The pool area itself is excellent, with a very safe children’s pool and a warm adult pool up to about 1.5m deep. There were ample sun beds and umbrellas.
Louise and her husband were excellent and helped us settle in, and also sorted out the wifi which wasn’t working when we arrived – many thanks!
Our only difficulty was cooking using the induction rings and the oven grill. It would have been helpful to have some instruction leaflets, but we eventually looked up a tutorial on YouTube which told us something about induction cooking. We feel this kitchen would be ideal for someone wanting breakfast and lunch in the apartment, with the main meal eaten out.
The laundry and dishwasher facilities were excellent, and there is a really useful laundry room with drying facilities off the kitchen.
Owner's Response: Thank you for the many kind comments you made in your review. They are very much appreciated. I agree totaly with your remarks about the garage (i have experienced the same when i first had to negotiate the columns) The design layout is very poor. My daughter who parks there frequently, in a much bigger car than i would hire , tells me it gets easier over time.
I personally had the same problems with the induction ring on the cooker .(again As with the problems in the garage layout, the cookers , refrigerator , dishwasher etc, all came with the new apartments in the complex, at the time we bought the property). I will certainly take on your suggestion of providing written instruction for the use of the cooker .
Thank you once again for taking the time to help us with your review.
