Make a holiday apartment in Playa de San Juan your home away from home

Found in an exclusive Alicante neighbourhood, HomeAway’s range of apartments and villas in Playa de San Juan are ideal for family beach getaways, with a great many activities and attractions on offer nearby. One of Spain’s very best beaches is here – the seven-kilometre Playa de San Juan, a broad sandy beach with fabulous amenities. Most apartments in Playa de San Juan are just a short walk from the shore, and some even have sea views. Holiday accommodation in Playa de San Juan comes in a wide range of styles suiting all tastes, but privacy and luxuries like gardens, pools and air-conditioning are standard in this part of Alicante.

Things to do

-Beach. You need look no further than Playa de San Juan, a gorgeous stretch of white sand equipped with a superb range of shops and restaurants, and offering facilities including sun beds, beach sports and children’s play areas. Its seven-kilometre length and range of amenities mean your days by the sea here can be as lively or secluded as you please.

-Sights. Make for Alicante for a dose of history and culture. The towering Castle of Santa Barbara is the top landmark here, standing out 166 metres above the city. It dates back to the 800s and was built during Spain’s Islamic era – it’s free to enter and is worthwhile for the view of the city alone. For a bit of context about Alicante you could visit the Archaeological Museum, which has lots of hi-tech displays and interesting artefacts.

-Food and drink. In the Valencian Community the big ingredients are seafood and rice. This has given rise to Paella, one of Spain’s best known culinary exports. Arroz Negro is a variation – made with squid and dyed black using its ink sack. The vineyards around Alicante are known for their high-quality wines, earning the Protected Designation of Origin.

-Family attractions. Benidorm, a short drive up the coast, is the Costa Blanca’s best destination for family days out. Ideal for summer are two water parks, Aqualandia and Terra Natura, which boast all kinds of flumes and slides. Terra Mitica is a high-profile theme park to rival the best in Spain, while Mundomar is a wildlife-themed attraction with dolphins and other aquatic species.

-Golf. The Costa Blanca and golf go hand-in-hand, and Alicante has two courses within the city limits, and three more just outside. Especially convenient to Playa de San Juan is Husa Alicante, designed by the late, great Seve Ballesteros and regarded by those who know as one of Spain’s top courses when it comes to innovation, practice facilities and upkeep.

Weather in Playa de San Juan

The perfect climate is what makes Alicante one of Spain’s favourite sun and sand destinations. If you visit a Playa de San Juan holiday villa in mid-summer then it’s best to be prepared for long spells of hot weather, with temperatures that soar above 30 degrees almost every day. Rain is almost nonexistent in this season, and remains infrequent even during the damper winter months. The period from November to April gets mostly clear, mild weather with highs that reach a few degrees shy of 20 Celsius.

Travel to Playa de San Juan

Alicante (ALC) is the airport if you’re flying to a Playa de San Juan apartment from abroad. It’s one of Spain’s top ten airports, and in the summer season it gets especially busy. There are lots of routes to this destination from the UK, with seasonal charter and low-cost airlines. Playa de San Juan is on the other side of Alicante from the airport, and you can get there by on the A-70 or with one of a range of local bus services.

Beautiful apartment in a great location

5 of 5
Our family of five adults and two children (one aged four years and the other eight months) stayed in the apartment for one week between the 20th and 27th May. The apartment was as attractive and beautifully appointed as the pictures suggest and the location is excellent being near to as many bars and shops as you could wish for. It is in a secure, gated community and only a very short walk to the beach which is clean and attractive despite the occasional jelly fish alert. The only problem we encountered was that we booked the apartment on the understanding that it slept eight people and as there were only five adults and two children we did not think we would have a problem. However, when it says it sleeps eight that includes a bed settee in the lounge, which has a long window wall and where there are no curtains or blinds so whoever is sleeping on the bed settee is woken at dawn, which comes very early in late May. Also, the three bedrooms are quite small with limited wardrobe space for the occupants of the bedrooms which meant the person sleeping on the bed settee had to live out of their suitcase and since the bed settee was in the lounge it meant the lounge always looked untidy and cluttered due to the open suitcase. From our experience the apartment was undeniably attractive and well located but our problem with using the bed settee whilst we were there suggest the apartment should be advertised as sleeps six in comfort and eight in an emergency.

Nice Apartment, Close to Beach, Trams & Restaurant - perfect for small family

5 of 5
Myself, my wife and two kids stayed here for a week and loved it. The apartment probably has one of the most balanced locations in that you can easily walk to the beach, restaurants or tram and yet you are close enough to supermarkets to also be able to walk and get self-catering supplies for the apartment. Unless you want to explore further afield, I'd recommend not bothering with a rental car - this is our second time staying in this area (Playa de San Juan), last time we paid 400 euros for a rental car (they add a tonne of charges on collection) and we used it twice. Taxi's are cheap and the tram service goes all the way to Alicante or even to Benidorm (if that's your thing - we avoided it). We even had a night away , catching a regional train to Valencia. The money we saved on the rental car more than paid for taxi's, trams and trains and meant we could have a couple of beers and didn't have to worry about parking. The apartment itself has all the amenities you'd expect and we cooked some meals there. The pool was completely unused and we had it to ourselves every day (great!). The apartment is only on the 4th floor but there is lift if you have heavy shopping with you. I will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it!
