Situated about 1 hour from Alicante and Valencia airports. About £90 each way for large taxi.
Javea is quite an up market area and does not seem to have suffered unduly from the recent recession. It is not served by package holiday operators and there are no night clubs that I could see. The beach area, Arenal, is busy and there are lots of decent restaurants in and around this area. Occupied by Spanish and other european families, this is not england with sun !
The apartment is situated on the first floor and has a very secure front door, I would rate the security as high. The Golden Beach complex is occupied by a mixture of permanent residents and families on holiday. It is well maintained with lovely communal gardens. The pool was cleaned every day. It is very quiet and the balcony overlooks a pedestrian area.
I went with my wife and 2 teenage boys. we didnt hire a car, the beach is less than a 10 minute walk away and there is a Masymas supermarket just around there corner.
The flat is well equipped -
Washing Machine, line, ironing board.
Good kitchen, now with toaster and kettle !
Air Con in both bedrooms and living area.
TV with limited english channels and DVD player, you may wish to bring some of your own DVD's.
Bath and beach towels provided.
Barbara met us as planned on arrival. The flat was very clean and she had purchased wine, beer, juice,bread, crisps and dips etc. There was other cooking and cleaning items so no rush to go to the shops.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I hope to go back next year.
We stayed for 5 days in javea golden beach apartments 1. The apartment was clean but basic. The beds in second bedroom were very uncomfortable. Children's beds! The main bedroom was nice. It's a 5 min walk to beach . The pool was ok except no sunbeds to sit on just chairs. The biggest hang up was tv channels were poor, the football channel didn't work and there was not a toaster or any oven trays we could find. So you would be stuck to cook anything in oven.
I think the apartments are basic but very clean. But small things like toaster would be big bonus.
Four of us stayed at the apartment, 2 being young children. The apartment was ideal for us all, in that there was more than enough space and facilities to suit. The apartment is very well furnished and is more like a home from home than a holiday rental. There were lots of nice touches like extra towels, beach chairs, etc, etc. The owner also really put herself out to get us settled and comfortable. The pool area is ideal with a childs pool for the young ones. The location is also good being a short walk to the beach with all the restaurants on the front. We would whole heartedly recommend a stay here.
