“Excellent - HIGHLY RECOMMEND ”
Reviewed August 16, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Having always been use to going on package holidays this was the first time we had booked independently for a 2 week summer break. I would definitely do it again. I booked flights through Ryanair to Fuertaventura which were good - although the plane was rather cold! The transfer to the airport was through Hoopa.com who we could not fault. They were reliable despite not replying to emails sent before our travels.

Apartment
WOW! The apartment was on the 3rd floor reached by several flights of stairs (there is a lift for the less able or push chairs). A groups of 5 adults and a 2 year old stayed here for 2 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it. The apartment was very spacious with everything you could need. We used the balcony a lot for eating and relaxing. It is very spacious and was excellent knowing that our 2 year old was safe and could be in the shade whilst we enjoyed the sun. The swimming pool, shared with other guests was spotless and usually very quiet especially in the mornings. The onsite gym is a little rundown, could do with updating of treadmills but ok.

The owners were more than helpful when contacting them through text message and were very responsive ensuring everything was ok.

As we wanted a very relaxing family holiday the apartment and surrounding area was perfect. The short walk past the harbor area to the beach and main restaurant area was lovely. Many restaurants to choose from (highly recommend the Indian even though I don't like Indian food!). We didn't hire a car but for those who want a little more adventure then a car would be useful. There are 2 big supermarkets within a 20 minute walk.

Overall an outstanding apartment and owners. We had an excellent holiday.

“Perfect!”
Reviewed May 18, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Brilliant apartment, spacious, spotless with a large sun terrace overlooking the pool and small beach. Perfect for the two of us and a family would also have plenty of room. The terrace was comfortably furnished for lazing around or eating al fresco. Great shower in the bathroom. The thoughtful owners had left books to read, dvds to watch, cards etc. Nice walk past the harbour to the town with its many shops, supermarkets and bars and restaurants. Would have no hesitation on recommending it.

“Perfect apartment for a cycling holiday”
Reviewed March 28, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Great location and a very clean and spacious apartment. A very large patio which can be a plus for those who do not spend their entire days on the roads like we did :)

The owners are outstanding and have supplied everything one would need for a stay in this apartment!

“2nd visit”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Casa Sylph was just as perfect for a week's winter sun as I remembered it from 2 years ago.
Comfortable, spotless, the wonderful views from the huge terrace, home from home,
Gran Tarajal is such a friendly town and wonderfully void of tourist tat.
Would happily visit again

“Excellent apartment”

This is really an excellent apartment in a great position if you like a quiet relaxing experience in an authentic Spanish town. There is a local beach - the sand is a bit grey but clean. The accommodation is first class and very well equipped. It is spotlessly clean and very well organised. It has a stunning terrace which overlooks the sea. Some great outside furniture and everything you could need for a relaxed holiday. The access is excellent and although the parking space is not on the same level as the apartment there is a lift from the parking to the apartment. You don't have to walk up the steps if you have any difficulty - just use the lift.
The lounge is very well equipped and comfortable. Not much UK TV but great wi-fi. (take you tablet or laptop and load "film on TV' - then you can watch UK TV as much as you like)
The whole complex is very well maintained. The pool is spotless (although too cold for us in February!)
We honestly don't think you can find a better apartment in Fuerteventura for the price.
The town is typically Spanish - don't go here if you want lots of tourist attractions or if you want loads of night life. But DO go here if you want to wander along the sea front, relax in a cafe with a coffee and watch the boats come and go from the marina.
The owner is extremely helpful and very well organised. all instructions are clear and information very useful.
