“Quiet, well-located self-catering apartment in sub-tropical garden.”
Reviewed March 22, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

El Apartamento is a well-equipped, comfortable and atmospheric self-catering
facility ideal for couples. The roof garden caters for sun-worshippers. The owner, Patrick, is a genial and most helpful ex-pat Englishman and dog-lover who has developed a delightful sub-tropical garden. The nearby town, Motril, has all you need, including an excellent supermarket, and many attractions including the Sierra Nevada are within an hour or two driving. Recommend.

“A return visit to this beautiful retreat which, once again, did not disappoint.”
Reviewed March 10, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Fantastic location very close to the coast.
The apartment is ideal for our needs being nice and cosy on the odd unfavourable day with a great roof terrace for when the sun is shining.
The completion of the A7 motorway now makes the the whole of the south coast from Almeria to Malaga and beyond easily accessible especially since the motorway access is only a couple of minutes away.
Once again the gardens were an absolute joy from the orange and lemon trees available for the freshest fruit possible and even the banana tree in full fruit plus of course all the other delightful plants to be found there.
It never fails to amaze us how we keep discovering new areas in the garden where it always seems possible to find a sheltered or sunny spot whatever the weather.
The gardens are constantly evolving due to Patrick's obvious love of his property and his attention to detail.
We have already booked again to return next year and can't wait to go back.

“Return visit”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Certainly not disappointed with our return visit to El Apartamento. Received the same warm welcome from Patrick (the owner) . Always there for a chat or for local information if needed. Nothing too much bother. We travelled with our dog who had the same amazing holiday as us . He loved playing with Patrick's 3 dogs and became good friends with one of them especially.
A place I would highly recommend to people who want to relax in the beautiful gardens and to immerse themselves in the local Spanish culture.
