“Great value and very relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2008

We have just returned from 5 nites in La Concha. We paid 35Euro per nite for an apartment booked through Alpharooms.com
The apartment was very clean and spacious and we had our own patio with table and chairs out the front and our back door opened out onto the pool area which had plenty of sunbeds to relax on. The complex itself is very well kept and so peaceful and relaxing. No kids, no tacky evening entertainment which was bliss. There are alot of cats around but they aren't a problem and thats coming from someone who is allergic to them!
I agree with previous posters that the hot water runs out quite quickly but in the heat who wants anything more than a lukewarm shower anyway.
It was about a 5 min walk up to the main street where there is a large selection of bars and restaurants to choose from and a further 5 min walk in the old town/marina area where there are some further restaurants as well.
All in all we would definitely return to La Concha

If I had to sum up La Concha in one word, it would be "peaceful". It's a small complex set around 2 swimming pools. Each cottage leads directly onto the pool, each has it's own sunloungers so there's no towels on sunbeds. Best of the lot for us anyway was there is no poolbar and so no noise. The gardens are beautifully kept with flowers and bushes. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them.

Only one negative for me in that I thought the mattresses were a bit hard compared to what I have at home, but after a couple of nights we got used to them and slept well. La Concha are a 10 - 15 minute walk from that harbour area and 5 minutes from the beach, close enough to get there but far enough away so there was no noise at night.

We hired a car for a few days and saw a lot of the island. It's very easy to get around and the roads are in very good condition.

All in all, I would definitely return to La Concha.

Just got back from a week at La Concha. Agree with the comments about the lovely setting and ideal location for town.
However, we were slightly disappointed with a few things. The beds were incredibly uncomfortable, and my partner and I were actually quite cold on a number of nights with just a sheet and blanket. The shower, while powerful, is supplied with hot water from a 15 litre tank which reheats every 20 minutes. It meant switching the taps on and off while shampooing hair etc to ensure we didn't tun out of hot water before rinsing it out, and even then it was a bit hit and miss, with cold showers a regular occurance - not pleasant. And finally, the hob was pretty much useless - we couldn't even boil a pan of water to cook some pasta, it just wouldn't get hot enough. So, lovely gardens, staff and setting, but the little things were annoying enough that we probably won't return.

  • Liked — The quiet and pretty surroundings
  • Disliked — The 'prison style' beds and the lack of hot water

Went with my partner and we had read previous reports and all commented how clean these apartments were. This was absolutely true, they were immaculate. The apartment we had was No.6. It is run very efficiently but with a laid back holiday atmosphere. There are two sets of appartments and studios each circularly laid out around the two pools. There are gardens running around the whole complex which are again immaculate. These are intersperced with birds in cages, mostly finches but it is a pleasant sound. There are a lot of cats around the area, they are well looked after and well fed, not ferral but if you are allergic to cats this is not the place for you.

The rooms were clean and basic. There is a kettle, toaster and microwave in the apartment. We did no cooking so I cannot say how that would work but there is a two hob unit.. The fridge was massive and again clean. The beds were very uncomfortable but no different to most holiday apartments.

There was a maid service twice in our week and it was really good cleaning, the bathroom especially. Every day the patio area was swept and the pools cleaned and the areas all washed down.

The family who run the complex are friendly, cheerful and nothing is too much trouble. There is a safe in the apartments which cost 10 euros.

The complex is about five minutes from the beach and supermarket but the best supermarkets are around 10 minutes away on the main road, much more choice and better friendlier service. The restaurants around the area are very touristy and not great the food is pretty awful it is best to go to the harbour area about 15 minute walk, which was a fantastic walk anyway. The food there is a little more authentic and some really good ones.

Great holiday, good value, probably best to book direct with the owners, lots of people had returned year after year and I can understand why. Open the patio doors and you have your own patio with table, chairs, parasol and sunbeds with flowers trailing overhead. It would be quite a cheap holiday if you booked everything yourself and missed out the "middleman".

Stayed February 2007
