A holiday away from the crowds.......

  • 5 of 5

Visited the apartment as a party of 4 - apartment is really spacious and very high quality furniture - plenty of room for us all - kitchen very modern with everything you would need. Much higher standard than other apartments we have rented for a lot more money! Although El Toyo is a small resort, there is everything you could need here for a relaxing holiday. Beach is very quiet and there are just enough bars and restaurants - if you are looking for English breakfast then this is not the place for you - it is very Spanish and hope it stays that way. Great choice of wines in all the bars. 4 star hotels across the road welcome non residents and we did spend a bit of time around their pool. Great garden area with the apartment and a very handy BBQ which we used a couple of times - the one local supermarket has everything you could need with meat and fish. This is not an English resort and english is not widely spoken - if you like a taste of real Spain then this is the place for you. Lovely walk from the apartment in front of the hotels along a decked promenade alongside the beach - 3 beach bars and we visited them all - all serve really good choice of fish. Would go back and stay at this apartment any time - we were mixed ages and all felt catered for. Very peaceful and relaxing and guaranteed sunshine. What more could you ask for.

Very nice flat in an interesting region

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped, climatized flat with terrace, 10 min to the beach (absolutely not overcrowded). Appropriate infrastructure within 20 min walking.

Interesting surrounding for tourists interested in nature, small villages etc., otherwise close to Almeria.

Apartamento cómodo y con todas las comodidades.

  • 4 of 5

Hemos estado 5 amigos en Julio 2011 y la casa era tal y como se mostraba.

Cercana al Parque Natural del Cabo de Gata y con fácil acceso a Almería y Autovía.

Zona para pasear y cenar a 5 minutos caminando.

Personas de contacto encantadoras y muy amables.

Lo recomiendo tanto para familias como para grupos de amigos.

Very comfortable en relaxing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2,5 week during July 2010 in this apartment in El Toyo, Retamar.With our two daughters, and two girl-friends, aged 15-17 years old. We enjoyed our stay because of the very good equipped interior. the beds were good, there was enough space in- and outside, and the complex El Toyo gives you a safe feeling. The swimming pool was magnificent and the (very quiet) beach was only 10 minutes walking. In the evening it was lovely in the moonlight to make a walk along the promenade and the beach. There were enough possibilities to have dinner in restaurants, but we went only a few times, because of the very complete kitchen in the appartment. During our stay the temperature outside was too high to make long trips, but Almeria, Roquetas de Mar, San José (with also markets) are very nice villages for a visit. We can recommend this appartment for families. We are very enthousiastic about this adress, and we hope to come back there some time! Compliments for the owners.because the description on the homeaway site is correct.

Car: recommended

The ancient Andalusian province of Almeria has 200 miles of virtually unspoilt coast line and lies in the south east corner of Spain. It enjoys the warmest and sunniest climate in the whole of Europe, with mid day temperatures in January averaging 69F to 99F in August. The sun shines here for 320 days a year making it a virtually all year round holiday destination. Retamar is a beach front development located on the wide bay that joins the Gabo de Gata with Almeria. It is a typically Spanish resort, a welcome retreat with quiet promenades and unspoilt beaches. It is an ideal location to explore the famous national park which is one of the few remaining paradises in the Mediterranean, where you can find the most wonderful beaches and coves you could imagine. It is very handy for the airport and only a 10 minute journey into Almeria city with its shopping and magnificent Alcazaba, an ancient Arab fortress.

Golf: Excellent facilities on the Alboran Golf Course. 18 holes, newly built for the Mediterranean games in 2005.
