Stayed here for 6 nights in early June. The view and location was one of the best things about this apartment. However, apart from the view, everything else was poor.
Firstly communication, upon arrival and whilst during the stay communication was poor. The owner spoke no English which made things difficult. I texted the owner 30 minutes before arrival as agreed, only to turn up to the apartment and had to ring him as no one there to let us in. I was given the keys by a workman who did not explain or give any explanation of anything to do with the apartment. When we finally got in the apartment there was just 1 towel and 2 towels on a dirty patio floor. We texted the owner and got brought 2 more towels. laterI texted the owner with a question to which he did nor reply. I went to wash the 2 dirty towels in the washing machine that did not work and the owner advised me to go down the laundrette! The washing machine should either be removed or repaired
I fully agree with the last review about cleanliness. Prior to my stay I contacted Tripadvisor to ensure the apartment was fully cleaned prior to our arrival, which I was assured would be. The outside patio was dirty, including the floor, wall, and there was old rubbish and planks of wood everywhere. The whole outside needed a deep clean.
Inside, under the furniture, inside drawers and cupboards was dirty, something whichI was assured would be clean. The whole place was rundown, shabby and needs an urgent refurbishment.
The bathroom extractor vent was filthy and ether was a damp smell in the bathroom
It appears the host is happy to take the money form guests but shows no interest in their stay, by poor communication and providing run down accommodation. I do not feel that paying 516 euros was worth it given the standards experienced.
The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a very well presented apartment block. It has lift access and is very clean and secure. The location couldn't be any better.
There is wifi in the apartment but the signal strength was a bit patchy.
2 min walk to nearest supermarket.
2 min walk to castle and 5 min walk to harbour.
The apartment itself has a massive 'L' shaped terrace that gets the sun from sunrise to sunset. The interior is clean and well equipped except for a kettle. The hosts Alexis and Alba were wonderful and picked us up and dropped us back off at the airport for much reduced price over taxi transfers.
The area of Roquetas De Mar is spotlessly clean of which the beach was raked and cleaned every morning.
The stand out feature of the apartment has to be the terrace and the views from it, they were incredible.
All in all we had a wonderful time here and would recommend the apartment to any of our friends and family.
