Fantastic Location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment sits overlooking the beach and bay. A few flight of steps down from it takes you directly onto the beach, a few flights up from it takes you to the main road where there are restaurants, a fairly well stocked supermarket and the local bus stop. There is no need for a car. Local buses take you to surrounding areas and are only a few euros. Cabs from the airport are around €30-€40 depending on time of arrival/departure. (One of the restaurants will happily order one for you)

The apartment itself is a good size for 4. There were only 2 of us so it was spacious enough although to be honest we didn't spend much time inside as the wrap around balcony is where we spent most of our time when we were there. Ideal for private sunbathing, people watching and eating. There was shade provided from a covered porch area. No parasol but we felt it wasn't needed as there was enough shade in areas.

The bbq was fab and we enjoyed a few meals using that. We didn't really use the cooker so can't comment on cooking facilities or equipment.

The bathroom was nice and big and housed the washing machine.

When we were there the temperatures got quite high and we felt that air conditioning would have been good but instead there are a couple of fans which weren't that effective. Also it was our bad luck that there seemed to be lots of mosquitoes around too so we had to spray ourselves at night and keep the window and doors shut. Maybe some mosquito screens or nets would have helped.

I would have scored this 5 stars but as with previous comments, the interior needs a little TLC. It didn't really bother us much as we weren't indoors much.

No wifi but prices for roaming on our network are now the same as using your phone in the UK so it didn't matter.

Communications with Andre were good and directions to get there were clear.

Overall fab location, view, access to beach and shops. Not so fab if the interior of your accommodation is a big factor.

We would love to return to this apartment but only if there were mosquito screens in place and air conditioning .....

Fantastic location disappointing accomadation

  • 2 of 5

Just returned from Aranal the apartment had nice outside space but could of done with a good hose down & general tidy, the inside of apartment was very disappointing cupbroads untidy handles falling off in need of decorating & updating in all areas. Sue was very helpful when we arrived but feel the owners need to do some much needed improvements. Would return to Arenal but not this apartment.

Fantastic views

  • 4 of 5

The apartment has everything you need. It has amazing views of the bay and a really good sized outside space with table,chairs,sun loungers and a BBQ.

Inside could do with some love and care. Broken fans, kettle with limescale inside, no ventilation in the bathroom, a broken lampshade,faulty CD player and ripped window screens. Would really benefit from air conditioning.

We had a great holiday and would return to this area but not this apartment

Fantastic Location! Tired Property!

  • 3 of 5

We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Arenal d'en Castell. The apartment is in a lovely location overlooking the cove. The terrace is lovely and a really good size with a good BBQ.

The apartment itself is a bit tired and cluttered and in need of some TLC. The dining table, chairs and lounge furniture is nice and the bathroom is in good condition but would benefit from the extractor fan being repaired and a new shower head. The kitchen is dated with drawers not closing properly and the kettle lid not opening at all. The kitchen is reasonably well stocked though. The lamp shade in the lounge is broken and rusty. The fans are broken and have backs missing and the CD player doesn't work.

Overall we had a lovely time but would probably not stay in this apartment again.

Arenal

Arenal d'en Castell beach is a near perfect horse shoe, it's warm shallow waters make this resort very popular with families with young children. The beach is without doubt a major attraction to this resort with fine, clean sand and a good variety of water sports and other facilities available to suit all tastes.

The cliffs that surround the bay are very picturesque and afford those with accommodation at the back of the resort spectacular views.

There are a number of small supermarkets and other tourist type shops dotted around the area.
