“Hidden gem...!”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We have been holidaying in Maspalomas for over fifteen years and this rental was, without doubt, the best one. Superb location; you couldn't be closer to the beach and a wide range of restaurants, shops, bars etc. nearby. We have never stayed in a rental home that has been so well equipped - absolutely everything you could need and more besides. The terrace is particularly fantastic! We enjoyed early mornings and late evenings just people watching and appreciating the sunsets. Richard, the owner, could not have been more helpful. He met us at the airport and drove us back at the end of our stay. He is also speaks several languages. We will definitely be back - assuming there will be any availability!

“Best accommodation ever!!”

We have travelled to Maspalomas many times, but Ricardo's is the best ever! He is so friendly and helpful, he picked us from the airport and took us back there also, allways asking if anything needed... But we didn't need anything, because there was everything! Very clean and cozy, and location: best on the island, beach and sea just few steps away, very peaceful and quiet in the evenings. Just loved it. So thank you again Ricardo, we'll see you again, next reservation already done! Many hugs for you! Definitely recommened.

“Great stay and great host”

We travelled to Maspalomas in January, saw this apartment and found it on Tripadvisor. We loved it, so booked the apartment for a weeks stay in May.

Richard met us from the airport and on arrival at the apartment, he gave us a guided tour and showed us how to operate the AC, satellite TV, washing machine etc.

The apartment is perfectly locatied right on the beach and only a short walk from the Faro lighthouse, shops and numerous restaurants.

At 7.30 in the morning you can sit on the terrace and watch the sun come up over the sea and enjoy breakfast with fresh bread from the supermarket some 200m away.

The town council clean the beach every day. On the first morning we were aware of the hum of the beach tractors but after that they did not bother us.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and more, Richard even arranged for an off road parking space for our rental car.

Richard was a charming and generous host and left his phone number should we need assistance.

At the end of our stay, Richard dropped us back to the airport.

We are already planning our return trip next spring.

“GREAT LOCATION, falls short of 5 star”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

people found this review helpful

The location is what sells the accommodation. Step out of the door onto a wonderful beach.
Sit on the terrace and watch an endless stream of people going to / from the beach. Enjoy a warm evening under the stars. There are very few mosquitos - 3 bites between 2 people in 4 weeks.
If you want a walk there is miles of beach or a paved path along the edge of the beach.
Restaurants - loads of choice. Sadly most are only ok. Some better value than others.

Short walk to Time (probably the best of the restaurants), the bus station and the outdoor cinema (a must visit).

So why not 5 star.

The access to the beach for the machine that sweep the sand at night is next to the apartment. If you are a light sleeper they will wake you and keep you awake a while with the revving diesel units.
The cockroaches - 8 spread through the 4 weeks despite spraying around the flat.
The damp on the base of the wall in the main bedroom.

But there is the location. I defy anybody not to smile when they open the door in the morning and see the sunrise over the sea. The feeling of pure enjoyment from hundreds of people who are having a great time on the beach. It truly is a memorable holiday.

Great spot for a beach break.

Thanks very much for your review.
Regarding the cockroaches it is not usually a problema,I have been trying to figure out and talking to the comunity president apparently they have been refurbishing the underground roomwhere the waste wáter pumps are and it seems to have sent the creatures scurrying.
I am very sorry for this and I can only apologise and hope once the work is finished we get back to normal(you usually only see them in the garden of the downstairs appartments!!.
As regards macine for beach cleaning I am afraid there is not much we can do,we have complained a number of times also the 5 star hotels around us but to no avail.
Regards and thanks again,Richard
