Just back from a week in this delightful little bungalow. On a complex of similar size bungalows but was very quiet. We didn't venture into the pool, but most days it was empty of people.
King size very comfy bed! Great shower! Well equipped kitchen. Suntrap secluded patio area. Double and single sofa beds in the lounge. Plenty of dvd's which was great as only 3 channels on the TV! Plenty of books, games and cards to entertain if not wandering out.
Local Spa shop stocked pretty much everything you could need and was 3 minute walk away. A splattering of bars also near Spa but a pleasant 10 minute stroll and there was a huge selection along the front with a shopping precinct behind.
We walked to the Marina one day which took bout 40 minutes at a slow pace.
Only downside we found was the mosquito's! We were both eaten alive despite repellent sprayed on and we also brought a plug in from the chemist there (after 4 days) but feel it was too late we had already got the itch!! Only soothing thing we found was a cold cloth or banana skin (inside bit) gave instant relief.
First minute transfers were great too but they don't allow much time at the airport so would recommend not going by their recommended pick up time if you want time to eat or pee before your flight!
Just arrived home after staying 6 nights . Lovely little bungalow. Well equipped. The area outside is a suntrap and is very private. We laid out most days for a few hours. Friendly,chatty neighbours at number 4.
We managed to brave the pool just the once during our stay as it was very cold.So quiet,we had it to ourselves and now we know why lol.
We loved the location,very central and amenities within 5 minutes walk. The only downside was the mosquitos. We kept all windows and doors closed but they somehow managed to get in and we were bitten quite bad but this wouldn't put us of staying again. Thanks alex and sue for allowing us to stay.
This was a last minute booking for me and the owners were extremely patient while I sorted out flight options; arranging a late check out too was easy.
The bungalow is in a lovely quiet area but still only a short walk to the beach and with shops very close by.
The pool area is lovely and quiet too although I preferred relaxing quietly on the terrace of the property :)
The bungalow is well equipped and the terrace is very private and sheltered.
Having arrived later on in the evening, the welcome pack was most appreciated and a lovely surprise.
If I were to return to Playa Blanca, I would definitely check out the availability of this property.
I stayed with my 8 year old daughter for a week in April. It was very well equipped with a proper oven, hobs, microwave and toaster. The washing machine was a Godsend and our clothes quickly dried in the lovely weather. Washing powder is very cheap at the Spar ( we left some behind)There's a Tv and DVD player which is great if you have small children ( parents will know what I mean) or if you fancy staying in with a bottle of cava and a home cooked meal which we did 4 nights out of 7 easily. The apartment is close to a local Spar for supplies and an even better equipped Superdino supermarket is about 15mins walk away and is very well stocked to make it easy to self cater etc.
A great welcome pack greeted us on arrival with washing up liquid, cloths, bottle of water, nice red wine, biscuits, milk and a few sachets of tea and coffee.
A lovely surprise!
You are also only a few minutes walk from Playa Flamingo ( my favourite beach in PB for snorkelling). The promenade into "town" is left at the Spar and has lots of restaurants, bars and shops.
There are a few behind the Spar too with a nice sea view.
The instructions at the apartment are very informative and it's a relief to be able to leave the key safely at the apartment.
We felt very safe here and it was very peaceful and quiet with no pool bar or music.
We didn't use the pool as it was so quiet and had no other children around for my daughter so we went to the next door resort where we'd stayed before( Casas Del sol) where she met lots of new friends.
When it was hot I opened all windows and and used door stoppers to let air blow through. During the night we used the fans.
Be mindful that cockroaches wander in if you don't sweep up crumbs and empty your bins. I used ( and left behind) a can of bug spray and closed the door at night to keep them out. It's a warm country, they are difficult to avoid.
The bedroom has a free safe, ceiling fan and double bed. The lounge has 2 sofa beds, one double, one single.
There is a breakfast bar inside with 2 stools and outside a table and 5 chairs and 2 sun beds. An umbrella can be brought out for shade.
I would certainly stay here again!
Location of villa was ideal for all amenities beach supermarket bars all within easy reach yet in a quiet peaceful area with a lovely sun trap to catch the afternoon sun , everything needed was provided in the villa and we can't fault anything about our stay,
Thank you Alex for allowing us to stay hopefully we will be able to return in the future
