The Perfect Spanish Seaside Holiday

5 of 5
My wife and I have just (September 2017) had 9 days here, with a week shared with our daughter and her partner. Everything about the apartment - its location, facilities, terraces (including roof terrace), views over the sea, immediate access to the beach and local coves - are all you might hope for, and it was spotlessly clean. The weather throughout was perfect for spending time swimming and snorkeling (29-33 degrees), and enjoying the warm evenings, in or out, with a few glasses of red. We were very well looked after by Antonio and find it very hard to think of anything negative to say at all. Absolutely delightful. We all had a wonderful holiday. Alan & Mary

Late summer in Valle del Este

5 of 5
I visited the resort with a friend and it was a first visit for us both in Almeria. It is the authentic Spain. The golf resort is a good mix of ex-pats and Spanish, the hotel offers all facilities including a very large pool, spa, fabulous food and cocktails to top it. Garrucha, a working Spanish town is only a few miles down the road and is a busy busting fishing town with great restaurants and bars and 3 miles further you are in the most picturesque town of Mojacar (the Spanish equivalent of chocolate box) with dozens of restaurants, tapas bars, and ice parlours. The excellent road network allows you a smooth journey to and from the airport (a very small and friendly airport) as well as day trips to some of the surrounding towns and nature resort. Finally the apartment : Amazing location, overlooking a green, peaceful and quiet (great rest/ sleep) with a fabulous pool just 20 metres from the door, fully furnished with modern furniture and all necessary appliances. The care takers are friendly and helpful. Very spacious inside, a great balcony and a massive roof terrace. If you happen to be a golfer, this is a must visit place. In summary : I will be asking Linda and Ian to stay there again as it was a most enjoyable week.
