                  First the owner arranged a pick up from the airport which was really helpful. Location was good for long walks. Plenty of choices of places to eat. Accommodation was very good and clean. Beds could have been a bit more comfortable.

                  Fantastic apartment, perfect location -10 day stay

                  5 of 5
                  Having rented many properties in the Gran Alcant area in the past 12 years, this apartment did not disappoint. It is in the perfect location, very close to local shop, restaurants and bars and an easy walk to the beach and the bus stop, which will take you to Alicante or Santa Pola at very reasonable prices. a 10-15 minute walk will take you to the Gran Alacant Centre where you can shop in many supermarkets and eat in a wide variety of restaurants. A must to eat out would be the Patagonia steak house and the Chinese restaurant, both are excellent in both food and price. The complex itself is kept to a very high standard and was a pleasure to walk through, swim in the pool or just simply, view. The apartment itself is perfect, has all you need for a holiday and the views from the roof terrace are fabulous. Jesus communication from time of booking until meeting was perfect and contact throughout the holiday was no problem. We had a fantastic time at the apartment and would not hesitate to return.
