Photos and Description of this Pájara holiday apartment

Relax by large outdoor swimming pool or stroll on golden sandy beaches

Olicos apartment is a beautiful 2 bed apartment in a new complex. It has been fitted out to a very high standard by an Interior Designer. This apartment is the ideal place to 'chill out'. Relax with a glass of your favourite tipple on a long balcony while enjoying panoramic views of Costa Calma and Playa Esmerelda. Wake up to the most magnificent sunrises in this very comfortable apartment. Later on relax in a sun trap beside a very large outdoor swimming pool or take a stroll to the heavenly clean golden sands and crystal clear sea of Playa Esmerelda. It is ideal for couples who want a peaceful relaxing holiday or for families.

Golf: There are three golf courses within easy reach of this apartment.

There are two golf courses located in Caleta De Fuste which is approximately 40 minutes drive away.

There is also a course in Las Playitas

Non - member are welcome at all of these courses.

We had a nice stay in your apartment. Hope to visit same place again next year. Bartosz Jakubowski Poland 30th Jan 2011

We have passed a wonderful week in your most beautiful and comfortable apartment (including being very lucky with the weather. We even went swimming in the ocean which was a next to unreal experience coming from frosty Berlin...). Mant thanks again for renting it to us. Katja & Sven 18th Feb 2011

Thank you for everything. The holiday was just great and the apartment is very comfortable. We recommend it to our friends who think about visiting Fuerteventura. Joanna Suwart-Olszewska Poland 25th Feb 2011

You are a mere 7 minutes walk down to this centre where you can kite and wind surf to your hearts content.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi there

We have just returned home after our two week holiday and wanted to say a big thank you for letting us rent your fabulous apartment. We have had a wonderful time and the aprtment was certainly the best we have stayed in. We found it to be well equiped with everything we needed and more. The view from the balcony was amazing and we're missing it already! Lance enjoyed windsurfing at the Reni Egli Centre and our daughter had fun learning too. We are so glad we hired a car so thank you for your advice! Coata Calma and Morro Jable were lovely but we enjoyed returning to our 'home from home'.

Just to let you know, when we first used the oven there was a very strong smell and some smoke. I gave it a good clean and removed two very blackened discs (probably only some burnt food) from the bottom of the oven. Anyway, it seemed fine and we used it afterwards.

Thank you once again. We would love to use the apartment again next year (providing we are in a position to) and wondered when you start booking and what the price will be?

Many thanks again.

magnificent view, but need a car for everething!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for those who want peace. High-altitude, so need a car for every trip. Bathroom with large sink and a nice shower with hot water. A narrow bed with mattress of lesser quality. You can feel the springs. Kitchen cabinets were not clean. We did not use them, because eating out was very nice and not expensive. Breakfast on the (narrow) patio was nice. Large fridge and freezer. No kitchen towel found. The complex is desolate. 80 percent of the apartments are empty. The pool and terraces are well maintained though. Achieve bakery and grocery store by car within 5 minutes. Good restaurants found in Costa Calma. The beaches are blissful. Playa Esmeralda beach has possibly paying service with sunbeds and umbrella. These are also used by naturists, everyone does what he or she prefers. Windsurfers and kiteboarders can head to the nearby beach sotavento.

We had a great holiday, partly because we do not like crowds.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our apartment and we are glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Yes as we say on our site it is essential to have a car. In addition it will give guests the freedom to explore this beautiful island. We have a standard double bed in the master room and in addition we have 3 Foot single bed in the room. In the other room we have two single 3 foot beds. All beds are standard size. We use medium mattresses as we find that this suits most people best. Some people find hard mattresses too difficult to sleep on. Thank you for drawing our attention to the fact that the cupboards needed cleaning. We have drawn our management teams attention to this and also to the fact that there was no kitchen towel available. Sometime it can be quite on the complex, however the last time we were there it was very busy and we much prefer it when we can have a choice of sunbeds to choose from.

Apartment with agreat view

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment is lovely with great views. Because it is located outside the town centre, it is very quiet, which is lovely in the evening. The kids enjoyed the pool and the proximity to the seaside, so they could venture off independently.

I had a nasty fall at Paradaiso (my own fault) but the security guard was ever so helpful which was a great relief. So, you feel very secure there and are definitely good taken care of.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Like yourself Our guests always remark upon the magnificent views from our apartment because of Its unique location. You are almost guaranteed a good nights rest due to the quietness of the complex at night. Its proximity to the beach is a major plus while you also have the choice of using the pool. We are very sorry that you suffered a nasty fall however are reassured that the manager took good care of you. Eileen & Feargus

L'appartamento ha davvero una vista mozzafiato sul paese di Costa Calma e Playa Esmeralda.

E' molto vicino a Playa Sotavento perfetta per chi pratica sport acquatici e abbastanza comodo per andare a Morro Jable, dove la spiaggia è più adatta a famiglie con bambini e ci sono più possibilità per svagarsi la sera.

E' dotato di tutti i comfort (mancano solo lavastoviglie e wifi), in buono stato e abbastanza pulito.

Lo consiglierei agli appassionati di sport acquatici.

Si fuese por las vistas ¡¡¡¡ un chofff

  • 2 of 5

Estuvimos alojados 5 días, no pudimos estar la semana completa que habíamos pagado….

Al entrar en el apartamento ya notamos un olor a grasa y rancio que lo impregnaba todo, todo. (ver techo habitación)

Para resumir, nada más entrar tuvimos que limpiar, quitando algo más que un poco de polvo, la cocina y el baño estaban bastante bien, el microondas estaba muy limpio y el baño también, el problema está en los pequeños detalles…

De wifi, nada, es una coña, resulta que solo funciona en la piscina y en el balcón, (mentira) “de coña”. Yo no lo ofertaría, ya que no funciona.

Nos dejaron un juego de sabanas dos toallas de mano y dos de 100 x 40 cm, para ducharnos toda una semana dos personas. Insuficiente¡¡ De las mantas y los armarios, omitimos comentario¡¡

La tv, no se ve, solo se pueden intuir 4 canales extranjeros de satélite, tuvimos que comprar nosotros mismos un aparato receptor de TDT para poder ver algo de tele.

El hervidor de agua y la máquina de café que hay en la cocina, les aconsejaría que los revisasen, puede que de allí salga una nueva especie. También les recomiendo que se tomen un rico café con sabor a cualquier cosa menos café.

En la máquina de tortura, al que se puede llamar sofá por el parecido en su morfología, apesta a sudor y a falta de limpieza, aparenta muy bonito y cómodo en las fotos, pero la realidad no es tal.

La situación es privilegiada, pero hace falta el coche para todo y el acceso es algo deficiente.

l apartamento tiene buenas vistas, lo demás es un choff.

Si no fuese por las vistas ¡¡¡¡

  • 2 of 5

El apartamento se encuentra en lugar, alto, con buenas vistas, es cierto, ahora de ahí a llamarlo paraíso hay un mundo. El acceso con el coche es un camino de tierra, muy mal conservado, aún así, valdría la pena ir, la tranquilidad y las vistas lo amortizan.

El apartamento aparentemente estaba limpio, lo típico, el baño bien y a primera vista bien, otra cosa fue entrar al detalle: el olor a grasa y rancio impregna todo el apartamento, el techo de la habitación parece el de una cocina industrial con poca limpieza, tuvimos que limpiar nosotros mismos el apartamento el día de la llegada, para poder encontrarnos un poco cómodos, he de decir que sacamos un buen polvero de basura en 40 m2. Increíblemente nos dejaron, un juego de sabanas, que no nos atrevimos a utilizar hasta después de haberlo lavado nosotros mismos, no estaba mal, pero después de ver las mantas (buff) y el estado de los armarios, lavamos toallas y sabanas. por cierto, únicamente nos dejaron dos toallas de 40 * 100 cm.para una semana de "playa y duchas" evidentemente tuvimos que comprar toallas para mantener un mínimo de higiene personal.

De los utensilios y pequeños electrodomésticos de cocina, mejor no hablar, aconsejaría que desechasen el hervidor de agua y la cafetera eléctrica, puede que de allí salga una nueva especie¡¡¡, invito a los responsable a que se tomen un café hecho en ellos, seguramente les alegra el día.....evidentemente tuvimos que comprar los productos y estropajos para la limpieza. de la cocina solo usamos dos tazas, dos cucharillas y el microondas (si estaba muy limpio). El sofá huele a pies pero bien, aparte de ser una tortura. La TV. tampoco cuentes con ella, solo 4 canales de parabólica en austriaco y francés y que prácticamente no se veían en la TV. antigua y sin tdt que hay en el apto. evidentemente también tuvimos que comprar un aparto de tdt, para poder verla. La propiedad y los encargados pasaron olímpicamente de todo.

Entendemos perfectamente que este sistema no es el de un hotel, pero creo que debería de haber un mínimo standar de calidad para tranquilidad de todos. Yo evidentemente no repetiré por este sistema. Por un pelo nos amargan las vacaciones. Tengan cuidado.

Owner's Response: Hi Sergio, Thank you for your review. We agree that the views are magnificent from the apartment Guests see it as a little paradise tucked away. The reason why it does not have primary road access is because it is built on a natural reserve and a main road would take away from the beautiful hideaway. However we hire a car each time we go there and we find the road very adequate. People go to Playa Paraiso for the tranquility, beauty and spectacular sea views. Kite and windsurfing enthusiasts can watch all the action happening at the Rene Egli world famous centre from the comfort of their balcony. They have spectacular views of the wind surfing world championships held every July and can be at the centre of it all in 8 minutes. We are very surprised to hear that the apartment was not clean and up to the high standard that we require. We hire a professional management team to run and clean the apartment. They have wide experience maintaining apartments. If it was not up to standard then you should have contacted us and we would have asked to have it cleaned again. We give all our guests our contact details in case they need to get in touch with us for any reason. You could have also contacted the management team and they would have dealt with any issue that you had. They are very very happy to meet guests and sort out any queries that may arise. Each guest gets both a hand and bath towel. If they are there for longer than a week they can request extra towels. We do not supply beach towels and we state this on our website. i do not understand what problem you had with the kettle. It is a standard kettle . We do not supply cleaning agents as this is an apartment. We have been to many apartments and there were no cleaning products available. The apartment is very well equipped with a wide range of dishes and utensils. in fact guests have commented on how well it was equipped and felt that it was like' home away from home'. We are surprised that you did not find the sofa to your liking. It is a very comfortable sofa and is cleaned regularly. Yes the television has a limited number of channels but we have had no complaints from guests in the past.. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy our apartment, but we are delighted to say that we have received many lovely comments about it in our guest book and by email. Indeed we have some guests who have been returning for the past 4 years. Best wishes, Eileen and Feargus

Wunderschöne Lage, großartiger Ausblick, Appartment okay

  • 3 of 5

Wir hatten eine tolle, sehr sonnige und erholsame Woche in Playa Paraiso! Die Appartment Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und liegt traumhaft abgelegen am Hang. Ein Auto sollte man allerdings haben, ansonsten ist es sehr beschwerlich.

Unser Appartment war geräumig und sauber. Einzige Kritikpunkte und daher leider auch nur 3 Sterne: die Matratzen waren sehr unbequem und durchgelegen (Sprungfedern drücken im Rücken!) und in der Küche fehlt ein Satz anständiger Gläser. Wir waren nur zu zweit, aber mussten ständig Gläser abspülen.

1000 Dank an Emma, die großartig war und uns am ersten Tag auch sofort eine fehlende Nachttischleselampe gebracht hat!!

Insgesamt ist es ein schönes Appartment mit einem traumhaftem Blick, dem leider etwas "tender, love & care" fehlt.

Wir würden - mit neuen Matratzen - sofort wieder kommen :-)))
