The apartment is very spacious and clean. It's just a short journey from the airport and the handover was seamless. I would endorse previous comments regarding air conditioning. We had unseasonably warm weather for October and the fans were inadequate. However, as there were no mossies about it was possible to leave windows open at night and that alleviated the problem somewhat!
There are lots of facilities close by, supermarkets and some very good restaurants. Would particularly recommend Hiba Hiba and the Argentinian steakhouse on the way down to the beach. All in all, there is a great variety to choose from. In terms of general/gift shopping there is a plethora of fake designer bags - they're everywhere, it's years since I've seen such a proliferation!
The staff in the Diamonds bar are very welcoming and kindly agreed to store our luggage on the final day as we had an evening flight. They also pore a seriously strong G & T .. be careful!
Stayed here for 8 days at the beginning of October, apartment is lovely and the pool within the complex is directly infront of the balcony. Owner met us to hand over keys and was very helpful. Would definitely return.
Although the location is only a 10 minute walk from the beach and the Port area of Los Christianos, it must be made clear that this walk is down a steep hill and the return journey could be difficult for some given any health issues and the temperature/climate involved. The apartment is very clean and tidy, and has all required facilities to be fully functional as a self catering apartment. If I could improve on things in any way it would be the addition of Air Conditioning as the fans provided were inadequate for the peak temperatures of our mid August stay. The pool was lovely and cosy, however the usual pre loading of sun beds with towels prior to 9am was prevalent and should have been better policed especially as some people didn't actually return to use these beds until late afternoon !
Diamonds pool bar is very welcoming and all in all I would definitely recommend this apartment and complex to other friends and family, and would also return myself.
Many thanks Andrea ! Great holiday, great time was had by all
The apartment is in a nice and tidy complex complete with a good bar next door but one. The apartment itself was perfect for my family and had all of the things you need to look after yourself. There are cooking facilities and equipment, fridge, washing machine, 2 bathrooms, perfect. It is maintained to a high standard and the communication with Andrea is good. You always get a response to any queries you may have in a very short time. I would most definitely recommend staying here and hope to book again very soon.
Apartment as described with everything you need. Hairdryer in each bedroom was useful. Plenty of towels, pillows and quilts if required. Spotless when we arrived and cleaned to a high standard. Great extra touches with provision of soap powder, washing up liquid, bleach, condiments and oils etc.
As stated stairs to the 2nd bedroom are steep and can't be rushed! We found that WiFi didn't work in this bedroom but that didn't really bother us and it did work elsewhere within the apartment. WiFi also worked by the pool and in the bar so excellent for teenagers in our party!
Excellent communication with owner and handover of keys etc. before arrival. Contact number provided if we had any issues whilst there.
Quiet accommodation block which was predominantly British people there during our stay. It was a bit alarming initially when we saw the additional gates on front door and patio but most apartments had these in the area and was quickly reassured by residents there that all was well.
Pool and bar area clean, quiet and friendly staff available to provide advice and info if needed.
Diamonds Bar within the complex is British and this is reflected in the menu but food was good, freshly prepared and tasty. Staff very friendly and happy to help.
Location is OK but you do need to consider hills and steps if you want to go to bars and shops other than a couple of venues that are close to the complex. Beach and harbour is about 30 mins walk away. Taxis are cheap and plentiful so never an issue getting back up the hill after a shopping trip or night out!
Overall excellent value for money.
