Excellent accommodation and situated in prime location with views overlooking the pool and wonderful sea view. Fifth time to Duquesa and I'm sure we will return!

“The Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

Stayed here for 10 days and wasn't disappointed. One of the best places we have ever stayed. The villa is in a gated community with secure parking. The villa is of a very high standard and is incredibly spacious. It has all the home comforts with stunning views of the pool and sea. The balcony area is very big and perfect for lounging morning, noon or night. The pool is excellent with a full time life guard and the grounds are exceptionally well kept....It really is the perfect place to relax and de-stress! The location of the villa is about a 5 - 10 minute walk into the port of Duquesa where there is a wide variety of restaurants and bars. The seafood Paella at Meson de Castillo restaurant was excellent and only a two minute walk from the complex. If you are after something lighter than the Chiringuito's on the beach front are all very good value. There are a number of Supermarkets a very short distance away. Looking forward to returning very soon as this place has everything you want for a relaxing, luxury holiday. I cannot pick fault with anything during our stay.....a real gem!

We returned last week from a lovely holiday. Los Granados 2 is a gorgeous complex. The gardens are very well kept. The pool is amazing for kids and always plenty of sunbeds. Also 2 very friendly life guards sharing shifts. The security is great and very helpful men on the gate.
This complex is definitely the best we have stayed on in Duquesa.
The apartment itself is spacious and clean . We had 4 adults 3 kids and had more than enough room. The terrace, lounge and master bedroom have the best view. The kitchen view is not bad but the other two rooms look out onto the main road.
Ella the lady that looks after the apartment there is very efficient and helpful. Ella is very reliable with meeting you with keys on arrival etc. Ella is always available on the phone if you need anything or have any problems.
Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning again.

“Fabulous apartment - amazing pool and view”
Reviewed August 8, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

people found this review helpful

Stayed here as a family of 4 - the apartment is large and beautifully decorated. The gardens are large and perfectly maintained and the pool is massive (and it has a lifeguard! Which means it's really safe and well behaved)

Reassuring to be met on arrival by Ella who settled us in quickly to the apartment and shared her knowledge of the area.

The apartments are on the beach which has lovely beach bars so between those and the pool there isn't much need to go anywhere else. The fishing village next door has some traditional seafood restaurants and the busier harbour is only 1km along the
Promenade with a good variety of restaurants.

Really looking forward to my next trip here

“1921 Apartment - Los Granados II”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Booked through Duquesa Apartments. Just to get the 1 complaint out of the way. When they turned cleaned the apartment they just replaced the towels and made the beds. So that was disappointing,,,,
So Los Grandos II was lovely - make sure you get an apartment with a good view as this was the primary selling point. The people who travelled with us didn't have the same view and for that reason it was overpriced. It is quite expensive - circa 2300 euro for 2 weeks in July. Not sure I would pay that again but it was lovely. Great pool with a real deep end - circa 9 feet which was great for the kids. The live guard (Nicky) was brilliant and only stepped in when needed.
The walk to Duquesa port is realistically 15 mins but a lovely walk on the beach front. We have stayed in Duequesa many times and generally closer to the Port but this was the best accomodation to date. So I guess you pay for what you get. Loads to do in the port, nice stalls around the castle (between the apartment and Port). Short trip to Gib (but you do that trip once in your life).
So all in all would recommend but a tad pricey (circa 700 more than we normally pay).

“Lovely, Lovely, Lovely!”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment is clean, comfortable and spacious.
The complex is gorgeous, swimming pool is large and clean with a life guard who is quite strict (but not unpleasant or unreasonable) but I think this is a good thing as it keeps everyone safe! We had a brilliant holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!

“Beautiful location, lovely safe environment, idela for our teenagers to enjoy some freedom”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

A really nice apartment in a lovely location on the beachfront, a short walk (5minutes) to main harbour restaurant location but also with the added benefit of a local shop and several restaurants in the fishing village on the door step. The pool is still open and well used until after 8pm and the beach is sunny until after 9. We hired a car but didn't need to, there are 2 supermarkets within walking distance. The benefit of the car came from trips to the waterpark, Gibraltar, Tarifa and Rondo but we would have been just as happy staying in Duquesa for the 2 weeks. We will be going back
