We spent 5 weeks in the apartment. The best part is a very serviceminded and very friendly host. But the apartment needs a renowation!
Spent one week in this very clean apartment. Area known as Chaparral.
Met by owner and greeted with fruit and a bottle of drink, very pleasant.
Great WiFi and one TV channel in English. Two single beds and a settee bed. Washing machine and all the cutlery, plates etc that you could want.
No heating or air con.
Small shower which was difficult to get in and out of, shampoo and shower gel, soap and toilet roll provided with towels. You could dry the towels on the clothesline located on the balcony. Balcony got sun in the afternoon.
Apartment located within a gated community and to gain access to it you needed a key so security good. You also had a key to unlock the metal gate on the front door of the apartment and another key to open the wooden front door, so doubly safe. Despite all this security the general area felt very safe, there were no undesirable characters hanging around and I felt quite happy walking around late at night.
Good communal swimming pool and sun deck area. Small bar on site full of jolly Belgium and or German people. Good Greek restaurant next to to the pub. Supermarket five minute walk away surrounded by a small shopping complex. Plenty of bars and restaurants within five minute walk.
The Cosby Corner British bar does good English and Scottish breakfast and has music on some afternoons and the Brittania bar is run a friendly and informative Evertonian. Other British bars in Hercules Street full of friendly people and where you can put a bet on.
Ten minute walk to Las Galletas, where there are more shops. Great Pasteleria located just outside compound, lovely breads, coffee and orange juice. Always crowded very popular.
You can get a bus for €1.50 to Los Christianos, runs every 30 minutes and takes about 30-40 minutes travel time.
The small bar located on the stoney beach where the very helpful Villy works has to be seen, it is in a wonderful location and is called a chiquerila or something like that.
Taxi rank two minute walk away with cost of journeys to nearby locations well publicised, € 19 to airport South.
