Apartamentos Turisticos Talaimendi
Reviewed July 10, 2011

We stayed at the apartment for a week in July 2011. The complex is in a very location and in good shape. The people at the reception were friendly and provided several information material about the Zarautz area. Here are the pros and cons we experienced over the week:

pros:
- location, Zarautz area is beautiful
- elevator was available
- apartment was spacious (bedroom, bathroom, living room and complete kitchen)
- apartment was clean, furniture was in good shape, towels and sheets were provided
- ice cream in Zarautz is incredible ;)

cons:
- non-smoking room had a strong smell of smoke
- limited cleaning material provided
- street noise is very apparent
- a rental is recommended

We stayed for 7 nights and were really pleased with the quality of the accommodation, the apartment was spacious and really well equipped and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Overall, really good value for money and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Just two negative points, Firstly the apartments are not really in the town itself and there is a 20 minute walk to the beach and about 40 minutes into the centre of town.

Secondly, although the apartment was absolutely spotless when we checked in it was not cleaned at all during our stay. I asked at reception and was told that they didnt clean the apartments and that we had to do it ourselves but no cleaning products were provided and this was not made clear to us on check in. The towels and sheets were changed after 4 days but I was not impressed with having to take my own rubbish bags out onto the street, and then going to the supermarket to buy cleaning products and cleaning my own toilet while on holiday. If I had rented a cottage for a week I would have accepted this but as the apartments are booked on a night by night basis and there is a staffed reception and a cleaning lady working there all morning I would have expected a better cleaning service. Very disappointing.

We stayed at the Talai mendi apartments last June. We booked with surfholidays.com and although they have many destinations we thought this sounded the best for what we were after.

Neither of us had ever surfed before so it was as good an option as any - but we both wanted to go to North Spain as we have heard so much about it.

The apartmentrs are aboutr a 10 minute walk into town - didnt really bother us. The accommodation in town is only with a few pensions and we wanted our own place. The apartments are brand new and are part of a culinary university - at lunch they have all kinds of specialities in the restaurant that we could taste - really different experience! We stayed in a one bed apartment instead of a studio - they've a full kitchen and a large living room with plasma screen and nice little balcony looking over the countryside. The apartmenmt complex is quiet and self-catering which suited us fine. There was parking although you don't really need a car unless you want to explore the area.

Zarautz old town is lovely - a small square wiuth bars and restaurants. The main action is at the beach though. Their is a 2km long promenade with bars, shops, restaurants every thing you want - all facing the ocean. And at night the place really comes alive.

We took a week worth of surf lessons - its a really mellow beach, graeat for beginners. We only did a few hours a day.

I'd definitely recommend staying here; and San Sebastian is only 20 minutes away - worth the day trip.
