Review Submitted: 13 April 2013
Date of Stay: April 2013
The apartment is in a quiet location. The shower is hot and powerful and the bed is very comfy. The pool is nice, although its not heated so we did not attempt to go in in April. The beach is more like a 10 minute walk (a good walking pace) but a gorgeous, quiet place to relax. There were not any bars, looks like they had closed down.
We found the apartment a little 'tired'. The towels, furniture, crockery, curtains, etc appears worn and well used and need of replacing. It was quite clean on the surface but we did need to wash the crockery etc before using.
I think it would definitely be a benefit having wifi at the apartment.
The bar on the complex was quite a good place to go but a bit pricey.
It would be useful to have a folder with times of openings on the site, and maybe a guest book for recommended restaurants etc.
We had a day out to Valencia which is well worth a visit. A gorgeous little cove called Casa del Grande, near Javea, is definitely worth a visit.
Owner's Response: I think this review is quite honest. I would like to comment on a couple of things regarding the apartment being "a little tired" and general comments about the area. The apartment was newly built in 2006 and has in general been rented through the summer months July & August as its mainly a tourist / holiday destination. So yes the beach is fantastic and a 10 mins walk which isn't hard and is off the beaten track, it's not along a busy road so a pleasant walk.
WIFI has never been mentioned before. I suppose as most of the rentals are through the summer months people are trying to get away from computers. With regard to the tired look, I will review. I'm due to go out this year so will see what I think. The pool isn't heated as in the summer it really isn't needed. This rental was in April after a very cold spring, but there is a hotel on site with an INDOOR Heated pool which you can arrange to use direct with the hotel.
I will ensure the cleaning is better than this renter might have found and will review this with the agent IMMEDIATELY! Personally I ALWAYS wash the plates, cutlery etc when I do self catering wherever I go and also when I go over to the apartment. It's just something I do.......even if the cleaner has been in the day before!!
We had a guest folder and have had to replace it several times...sorry but if other guests have removed it we can't keep putting it back!! There are usually brochures of things to do in the area but again these get removed, probably accidentally left in cars when people take them out for reference.
Agreed the cove near Javea is well worth a visit.
