We booked as a last minute decision and wanted to avoid busy hotels in school holidays. We were lucky to get Casa Irene for one week.
The location is ideal, a short picturesque stroll across the headland path down to marina rubicon with its many restaurants and shops. 5 minutes by car into busy Playa Blanca which we like to avoid as it is very touristy.
Two storey Duplex ideal for family of four with double room ensuite upstairs and twin room with bathroom downstairs. Very spacious, immaculately clean and well presented. Very well equipped with lovely patio area with sun loungers and seating for 6. Petra the manager is very helpful, it was extremely hot while we were there and with lack of air con we asked for an extra fan which Petra kindly delivered the next morning. The air con is a miss especially at nighttime.
Pool area lovely once the rather loud Londoners had vacated on day two of our stay! We spent a lot of time visiting local beaches and traveling the island in hire car but car not completely necessary if you are prepared to walk to marina where taxis into Playa Blanca relatively inexpensive.
Overall very pleasant stay and would return, perhaps in a cooler month.
We were very impressed with casa laura - a two floored property , nicely furnished and with two balconies and a terrace , getting the sun from sunrise to sunset . Located above playa blanca marina , with immediate access to the beautiful promenade , which runs for around 15 km around the coast . Restaurants at marina relatively expensive , almost twice the cost of the beautiful seaside restaurants in playa blanca , about a 30 minute walk away - useful to have a car here , although well stocked supermarkets only a few minutes walk away . Quiet block of apartments - some with permanent English residents - nice pool hardly ever used .
Davide was extremely helpful and made us very welcome . 30 minutes from airport - taxi fare 43,euros , so better to hire a car - plus car 99 euros for 10 days with no additional costs ! Hope to return in future - thanks again Davide !!
I have recently spent four weeks in February in Casa Laura with my wife and two friends. We found the accommodation very clean and comfortable. It is well proportioned for four people with a choice of outdoor spaces for different times of the day. The complex was very relaxed and quiet at that time. The promenade provides an easy access to the marine and the rest of Playa Blanca. David and Petra were very welcoming and responsive to our enquiries. A very good value break and exactly as described on the tripadvisor page.

Lovely modern apartment on quiet complex with very nice swimming pool and sea views. At present very few of the 50 apartments are occupied so very quite relaxed environment. Definitely would recommend and the local apartment manager Davide is very helpful and accommodating
