Excellent find, exceeded our expectations!
After reading the other reviews for this property, we booked thinking it would be nice, but not as good as everyone made it out to be. When we arrived the property exceeded our expectations - it was spotless clean and very well presented. The description of the location, layout, facilities etc. was all 100% accurate. There was air conditioning in the living room area and in each of the bedrooms, which was a bonus (and not sure if 3 air conditioning systems were mentioned on the description).
You could instantly tell that the property was well maintained and looked after, and the care-taker was very helpful and thoroughly explained all facilities of the complex and apartment. We also met the owner of the property, as they previous holiday makers had broken the air-conditioning in the living room area, and the owner came out on the first day, with workmen and fixed it. He was extremely helpful, kind and accommodating to us, as was the next door neighbour.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone in particular friends and relatives.
The balcony and apartment in general was a lot bigger than we expected, and was in an excellent location (just off the main road and less than 5 min walk to beach, and less than 10 min walk to marina - beside hotel Triton), which was excellent as there was no night time noise.
We were a group of 2 young married couples, and found the area really nice, with lots of activities, from day trips to Marbella, Puerto banus, waterparks, marina, boat trips, cable cars, theme parks, nightlife etc. We would however recommend travelling to airport, fuengeroira, torremolinos etc. by train, as it is air-conditioned, quicker and much cheaper than the bus. There is a bus stop and a taxi rank at the bottom of the road which was really handy. We normally took a taxi to the train station (5 min drive away from apartment, as it was an uphill walk) but taxi only cost 5euro between the four of us.
I do not have anything negative to say about the property except there were no sun loungers by the communal pool (you could lay on the grass on a towel instead), this did not really bother us as we spent most of our time in the hot tub, and we had 2 sun loungers on the balcony. Also some people may be put off as the property is a penthouse and on the top floor (5th floor) of the building, but there is a fully accessible lift at the entrance, or stairs if you prefer, so this should not deter you from booking this fabulous property.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are very happy that you enjoyed your vacation. Maybe next time!
