“Superb Penthouse Apartment in Lovely Location”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed for 2 weeks in the El Cielo penthouse apartment at Altea Hills and had an absolutely splendid holiday.

The apartment is in a lovely location, high up in the hills with superb views down the valley to the sea. It is also very quiet – although we were there in the early part of June, so out of the peak holiday season. The apartment is generally in excellent condition, is well maintained and very well equipped, with all home-from-home comforts – including Sky TV so that you can see just how bad the weather is back in the UK!!

The sun terrace/solarium area, which is upstairs from the main apartment, is a brilliant feature and gets wall-to-wall sunshine pretty much all day. Our only small criticism of the apartment is that some maintenance work is required here to ensure that it is of the same high standard as the rest of the apartment.

The pool for the apartment complex is very good and in the time we were there it was very quiet, so an ideal place for peaceful sunbathing and swimming. The pool and the grounds around the apartment complex are in first rate condition and it’s clear that there are people working on them constantly to keep them in such good shape.

Altea is a beautiful area, with plenty of excellent restaurants both on the sea front and particularly up in the old town area.

It’s essential to have a car – there is virtually nothing in the way of restaurants and bars within walking distance, so you have to drive everywhere, but there are taxi services available if you want to leave the car at home and fully partake of the local beer and wine!
