We were greeted with the keys on arrival and shown around the property albeit with a non english speaking representative but this didnt matter as it very easy to understand his hand signals and his smiley face. We felt at home straight away and had a fantastic seven days in a lovely relaxing place, the only criticism i would make is that the electrics in the kitchen need some attention as there were only two working sockets but no major issue. Candaleria and adjacent puntalarga are lovely, a ten minute walk away with clean and colourful little streets, numerous small bars serving high quality food and drink, and all with friendly welcoming staff, especially if you can learn a few spanish phrases although most can speak English. The walk up and down could be an issue for people with mobility issues but the local taxis are plentiful and cheap, we used them a few times after shopping at the local supermarkets. We had an amazing holiday and didnt want to leave, the property and the resort were fantastic and i would highly recommend it Kind regards Paul and Mandy Swindell Marple Stockport England

The sea is close and there is a nice prom which we walked on a lot.There are many cafes and restaurants. We also walked to the town of Candelaria which takes about 20 minutes,we are in our 60s.There is a shopping centre about 200 yards away with a well stocked reasonably sized supermarket. We hired a car and explored the area which we enjoyed but you could easily manage without one. There is a dedicated underground parking space and a lift up to the apartment which is on the first floor. The wifi is excellent and free. There is a flat screen tv but no English channels. Jaime brought us music and films to watch but we found we didn't need them as we had plenty to do.

Living area with lots of space, good bedrooms and a nice outdoor grill. The location is perfect for exploring the Island by car, nothing is far away, We really enjoyed our stay. Great host as well.
