From the initial booking stage until the day we left the property, Casa Amapola surpassed expectations. The owners, Rob & Juliet, were nothing but helpful, friendly and accommodating. Our flight arrived late at night but, thanks to clear, easy to follow directions, we found our way to the property with no problems and upon arrival we were absolutely delighted with what we found. The property is located in the most beautiful setting, the views are fabulous. The villa itself is spacious, clean, extremely well equipped, and it immediately felt like a home from home. A very generous welcome pack was provided which saw us through until we could make a trip to the supermarket. It’s hard to pinpoint all the positives as there are so many but, to list a few, the bedrooms were bright and comfortable, the living space was perfect and the provision of DVDs, CDs, books and games was just fantastic, the kitchen was equipped with everything (and I mean everything) you could need, and the terrace was bliss for sitting sipping wine of an evening and watching the sun go down. The best bit for us though, was definitely the pool. Holidaying with a toddler isn’t always easy but, our son was more than happy to splash about there all day. It was a definite boon having it all to ourselves and, thank you again to Rob and Juliet (who live downstairs), who told us to not worry about noise so we never had to fret about disturbing anyone. The area itself is well worth exploring. We had a day at the beach at Benajarafe and a great morning of retail therapy at the markets at Torre del Mar, amongst other things, but mostly we were just happy to spend time by the pool at the villa. We were so sad to leave. We’ve been back for a few weeks now and we are still pining for Casa Amapola and the sunshine. Rob & Juliet, we cannot thank you enough for allowing us to have the best family holiday we’ve ever had. We will most definitely return to your wonderful property.

As 6 friends travelling, we had plenty of beds and space to enjoy the apartment with a wonderful outdoor area to congregate and soak up the Spanish sunshine. The owner was incredibly helpful at assisting with booking taxis to and from the airport, as well as leaving food and drink essentials for our arrival. The outdoor space is a huge benefit and everywhere was very nicely decorated and very clean. Lovely terrace with lots of seating. The pool was lovely and clean and a great place to relax, although there are no sun beds here. The apartment location is in very easy access to the beach front, supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants with plenty of options for food and drinks. Torre del Mar is pretty quiet but perfect for a chilled out holiday. I would highly recommend this apartment to families or friends planning a relaxing holiday in the sunshine.
