“Just perfect for a couple with an interest in a view and beach on your doorstep”
Reviewed March 20, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We were provided with everything we needed. The shower and hot water were perfect. The bed was comfortable, the sitting area was ideal for wine in the evenings and the wind blew through keeping our place cool in the evenings so easy to sleep and no mosquitoes! Lovely view of the sea pool and easy to walk to everything in El Cotillo. My only issue was the expresso pot which I finally got the hang-of after 4 days! Clean and perfect for 2 people and great price.

“Good budget accommodation”
Reviewed March 13, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This property is actually in the Balcon de Cotillo apartment complex, not Cotillo Lagos as stated in the details. However the owner Diego gave us clear directions to find it and there was no problem. We stayed in the same complex last year and were happy to return, valuing the exceptional beachside location and the quality of the accommodation for the price. This is definitely for those on a modest budget - the room is set out as a studio with a double bed and a double bunk above, suitable for children only. The kitchen is well equipped and allowed us to produce one or two high quality meals during our stay. The bathroom is small but with a bath and overhead shower. Overall we had a reasonably comfortable 10 days here, though we did find the bed rather too firm for our liking.

“Great Place, nice beach, like paradise and not expensive”
Reviewed January 6, 2017 for a stay in November 2015

I would come again and again. Very nice location, directly situated on the beach. Appartments with fridge and stove. El Cotillo is the best place on Fuerte. Very good restaurants and cafés and fresh juices and the best fish nearby.

Very nice and helpful receptionist.

“Lovely little apartment with the beach and fantastic sunsets just 20m away”
Reviewed December 10, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Charming apartment with all the comforts of home. Worth noting that there is a DVD player and CD Player so you may want to bring some discs.
The owners communication was very good and the apartment was immaculately prepared when we arrived. For a quiet spot to get away from it all I would recommend this to anyone.

“Nice little apartment about as near the beach as you can get!”
Reviewed November 23, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

What was great about this apartment was how near it was to the beach (20m?), sea - and the fantastic sunsets! Not only that but we were pleasantly surprised how near we were to other amenities at the same time (Ocean Deli - coffee most importantly! but also cakes and lunch - was less than 100m and Bagus beach bar plus a couple of others were just a little further away). Parking was also not a problem which was a plus.
The apartment was a lot bigger than I thought after seeing the pictures. Contrary to one comment I thought the toaster was great as you can toast whole sandwiches at once! Plus the safe is worth a mention as it wasn't on the list of features I don't think, you won't fit a lap top in it but we got everything else in there....
The main drawback was that the apartment is on the shaded side of the complex, so you couldn't sit out on the balcony and enjoy the view and the sun together. It may also only be an issue in the winter months though I am not sure But that said, you could just grab your towel and sit on the beach with your coffee instead.... :)
Diego was quick to answer our questions and seemed really happy to help, thank you Diego!

The two of us stayed here for 10 days in September , slightly quirky configuration with the mezzanine bed but very clean and well equipped accommodation at a good price , great location almost on the sands of the lagoon , with a small terrace on which to watch the sun go down in a small very well kept and safe complex , we would definitely stay here again!

“Lovely self contained room, fab location.”

We stopped here for a few days at the end of our holiday on the island. It is basis which is reflected in the price but has everything you need, is clean and has a great location.
If you're travelling on a budget, then this is recommended. It won't suit everyone but we loved it and its quirkiness. The only negative was the toaster which took an age, everything else was perfect.

The name of the apartment complex is wrong so it took a while to locate it but I'd lost an email with the instructions which didn't help.
