This was my first ever time at renting a private aprtment from an owner. Always used holiday companies in the past. I was really nervous about so many things. Was my money safe, was it a scam, what happened if i got there and things went wrong etc... so much anxiety but...........Im so glad the first owner i ever dealt with was Gill, she went above and beyond to help me, answering questions, even inviting me around to view the apartment as we both happened to be in Fuerte at the same time.... My mind was "put at rest" . So very kind.
All communication has been very quick, Gill will always anwser questions and provides easy instructions on key collection and local info etc.
The apartment itself was exactly as shown in the listing and as others have described it so no need to write all over again how blooming lovely it is. This review is a little different as its mainly reviewing the owners...and they score top marks!
Thanks a bunch Gill and Simon! Ill be back :)
We've been to Corralejo before and previously stayed in a suite in a 4-star hotel, so we approached a single bedroom apartment at the Atlantic Gardens Apartments with a fair degree of trepidation. However, I'm pleased to say that our worries were entirely misplaced and I'd go back there again tomorrow.
Let me be frank: it is my understanding that the Atlantic Garden Apartments are rated as 2-star accommodation and split between privately owned properties and ones rented out through one or more holiday companies. Self-evidently, Simon and Gill's apartment is privately owned and this was reflected in the quality of its fixtures and fittings. It was more than adequate for the needs of two fifty-somethings who went for a relaxing week in the sum. If I were being churlish, I could suggest that it would benefit from the installation of an oven, but we knew at the booking stage that its cooking facilities were limited to a two-ring hob and a microwave and adjusted our catering accordingly.
Its three swimming pools weren't as fancy as those of a 4-star hotel, but we actually found the pool and its surroundings to be far more pleasant than those of the hotel we stayed in last year ....... and the sunbeds were exceptionally long and comfortable; I could have lain upon them all day. Actually, come to think of it, I did!
The apartment has a lovely big bed and a pretty comfortable settee that will do service as a second bed should you wish to try and fit three or four in the apartment. Fortunately, there were just the two of us and it we found it to be spacious and airy, particularly with the doors (to the large balcony) open.
The Atlantic Garden Apartments are situated next door to the Campanario Shopping Centre which made a trip to the supermarket inordinately easy. The shopping centre also contains a variety of bars and restaurants - we had a decent meal at "Boardriders", a surfer-themed restaurant - and you are within easy walking distance of the hundreds of other bars and restaurants that make Corralejo so attractive to its visitors. I hesitate to make any recommendations, but "La Mamma's Grill and Pizzeria" up a side street near the Big Ben Clock Tower is worth a visit, particularly for the fillet steak on sizzling volcanic rock.
Very well equiped modern apartment. Exceptionally clean and fresh looking with modern white furniture. Very well equipped kitchen with washing machine, microwave, toaster , 2 ring hob and fridge freezer, in fact everything you could want for a holiday apartment.
Very comfortable large bed and clean bathroom with bath and shower over bath.
Close to supermarket, bars restaurants and beach.
What more could you want for a holiday.
Will definitely visit again and would highly recommend to anyone wanting a carefree holiday with all amenities nearby..
Had a brilliant holiday could not fault the apartment would definitely stay again contact with owners 100%
