Enjoying a great location in Puerto de la Duquesa, we had a really good break in this apartment. It had plenty of equipment, was pretty well-maintained, the wifi was good, it was very spacious for us (being only two people) and it represented fairly good value for money.
What do I think was disappointing or could have been better? In no particular order:
-this is a huge complex, which is now showing its age and is a little bit `tired.` The apartment is set at the back with little or no view of the sea. You can see one of the swimming pools, but the view beyond is of a high rise block. The terrace, although a good size, does not get too much sun because of the location/position.
-while the apartment was pretty clean, there were a few areas where the standard was not as good as it could have been. For example, we found the fridge inside not 100% clean, we found an unclean serving tray above the fridge and some of the crockery was not completely clean.
-while directions to the property were fine, it would have been good to have had more specific information about how best to `navigate` the complex eg the `portals` (gates/doors) referred to in the information-sheet aren`t very clearly marked when you arrive in a car, alternative pedestrian routes to the seafront/the port (from the complex) could have been given - we discovered them eventually - and a little more information about what keys did what (ie opened which doors/gates) could have been given.
We have used self-catering accommodation extensively and are in a good position to provide a fair critique of a property and its `qualite/prix rapport` or value for money. This is a good apartment in a great location and the few issues noted above can (mostly) be tackled easily. They did not really detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay there, and they are noted merely as a prompt to improvement. I can recommend a holiday here.
My husband and I shared this lovely apartment for 1 week with another couple and had a fantastic holiday. It's clean, we'll equipped and has a lovely bbq area on the terrace. The sea views from the apartment are amazing, we always started off the day with breakfast on the balcony admiring the scenery! Beds are very comfy which is always important! The pool was right opposite the apartment and is a good size and very clean. Surrounding gardens are very well kept. It's also a very secure apartment with a private gate. Only 10 min walk to the lovely beach and supermarket. Great location for golf courses. Couldn't fault it, would definitely book again!
