Beautiful ground floor apartment in a small private and secure development in Playa Serena.

This apartment is in a small recently built development in a quiet family friendly location in Playa Serena, the most desirable part of the Roqueats de Mar resort.

The attractive building is in a lovely location overlooking the playa Serna golf course. It has a well maintained communal garden area and pool with sun loungers and parasols. Unlike many other developments the pool area is rarely crowded, even in high season.

The apartment is modern, bright and spacious with beautiful polished marble floors. It has 2 bedrooms plus a spacious and comfortable double sofa bed. There is combined air con/heating with individual controls in the bedrooms and lounge area.

The terrace has sun loungers, a parasol, outdoor dining furniture and a BBQ. Relax in the evening as the sun sets behind the distant Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Gador mountains.

Fantastic property, facilities and location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be more delighted with our stay at the property, it is spacious, secure and clean. My kids loved the dip pool and my five year old said it was his favourite thing about the holiday. We did venture to the communal pool on a number of occasions and found no more than ten other people there and plenty of room for everyone.

The property is located in a quiet area and it is around a 15 minute (1 kilometre) stroll to the main tourist strip. We found this fine with three kids in tow and it was needed after an evening meal.

It is also only a short walk to the natural park and we were lucky enough to see flamingos in flight.

With the help of the owner we were able to navigate the bus timetable to get a bus to Almeria City and enjoy one of the local festivals. Something which we thoroughly enjoyed and wouldn't have been able to do without the guidance of the owner.

Overall we would love to go back to Roquetas De Mar and especially this property, we couldn't have hoped for better.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Paul and De for your review. So pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment so much. Great to hear that the kids loved the plunge pool. Ours do do. It was one of the things which attracted us to the property in the first place. It makes the apartment feel like your own mini villa. Your description of the communal pool is also accurate, rarely busy and often you can have it to yourself. It is the quite location that many guest love and we have many regular guests who return year after year for this very reason. A real contrast to the noise in some parts of the resort and the crowds around hotel pools! Great that you were able to get to Almeria city to experience some of the annual fiesta and get a real taste of Spanish culture. The bus service means that anyone can do this even without a car. Almeria city is an interesting place to visit, especially for the impressive hilltop castle, the Alcazaba and the cathedral. Thanks again for choosing our property for your family holiday. I hope that you will return again. Donal Murphy

Best holiday resort and apartment ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had been coming on holiday to this area for the last 4 years but stayed in this apartment for the first time in July 2017. Wow! We often wondered how people could keep going to the same place year after year and now we know why. We had already found our perfect holiday destination and now we had found our perfect apartment too! It's spacious inside and out and the plunge pool is amazing! Highly recommend this place!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tracey for taking the time to write a review. Like you many of my first-time guests like the apartment so much that they return at least once if not 5 or 6 times! This true as much for low season (winter) guests as it is for summer guests.

Excellent Value For Money & Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Property was fantastic. Very well equipped and comfortable. My only gripe would be that the beds are a little low but apart from that I cannot fault the place. We did have a problem with the toilet flush in the en-suite but after informing the management company, it was fixed within a few hours. I highly recommend this place.

This is our 5th year visiting this apartment which says it all! We started going as a couple and this year with our 18 month old son. The apartment is just lovely and has everything you could possibly want. The plunge pool is perfect and again is more than enough for what you need to cool off. The communal swimming pool is also very lovely and usually empty which is great if you fancy having a swim. Every year we have been Donal has always been on hand to contact should we need him. This is always peace of mind. The apartment itself is located at the quiet end of the town which we find perfect as you can sit on the patio and listen to nothing but the sound of crickets whilst watching the sun set, or head to the restaurants and bars which is a 15 minute walk so best of both :)

I have been going to Roquetas for over 20 years and would never go anywhere else. We had previously stayed in a villa for many years but after discovering this apartment and its private plunge pool we decided to give it a try as a change and have never looked back since. It is very unusual to have an apartment with a private plunge pool so would recommend this 100%.

Thanks again Donal for allowing us to have 5 fantastic years staying here, so far.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cet appartement conforme à son descriptif. Les contacts avec le propriétaire étaient très sympathiques. Roqueta de Mar est une station balnéaire très agréable, avec des activités pour tous les âges.

Roquetas de Mar is a very family-oriented resort with a relaxed atmosphere. It is popular with British, German and other nationalities but overall has a predominantly Spanish feel.

Roquetas de Mar has a long and spacious beach stretching literally for kilometres from the port area to the natural park with accompanying promenade alongside. There are 'Chiringuitos' (small beach-front bars/restaurants) along the promenade and comfortable beach beds available to rent at reasonable rates (daily or weekly rates). Due to it's size the beach is rarely crowded even in high season. On the beach there are various water sports (windsurfing, jet-skis, pedaloes, etc). Also in the resort there is a a tourist train ride, bikes for rent, horse and carriage rides, children's play areas, go karting, and a water park. The port area has a marina, a popular pebble beach and numerous restaurants, many offering seafood specialties.

Golf: Adjacent to the Playa Serena Golf course. Two other excellent golf courses are also available at La Envia and Almerimar, both within a short drive.

Ski: The Sierra Nevada mountians are approximately 2 hours drive away.
