The apartment is modern and in an ideal position with the balcony overlooking the lovely pool, which meant we could sit out and watch our son in the pool. The apartment itself has a good layout, with good size rooms and was spotlessly clean. It was also very well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and utensils (which you do not always find with a holiday rental) as well as fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave, washing machine and Sky freeview TV & DVD. All furnishings were well thought out from the lovely chaise sofa to good sized wardrobes.
The local facilites are very good. The supermarket is out of sight but next to the apartment block. Bars and restaurants are 2 mins walk away, most serve free tapas with drinks and there are 2 beaches within 5 mins walk. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from offering a range of different foods including Spanish, English and Chinese. There is also a very good golf course opposite the apartments.
We had a great holiday, very relaxing, lovely weather. Everyone we met was friendly both at the apartments and in Almerimar. We have already booked to go back next year and are looking forward to seeing the friends both we and our son made.

We had a great week in Porto Fino, Almerimar. The apartment is 1 floor up from the pool and overlooked it making the south west facing terrace a really good spot for a G&T in the evening sun. Breakfast on the terrace before the sun reached it was such a relaxing time sipping orange juice and eating fresh melon while deciding how to spend the day.
The supermarket is right opposite the entrance, the golf course 5 minutes walk (literally) and the marina restaurants were just across the street so the location was perfect. The apartment was very comfortable and everything we needed was there. The couple who looked after the formalities and couldn't have been more helpful.
A short sailing trip, a tour of the wonderful Alhambra Palace (2.5 hours away), a round of Golf and good selection of restaurants and bars in the marina made our stay entertaining and enjoyable.
Given the location, facilities and good pool, it felt like the lap of luxury to us and we are planning a return visit as soon as we can.
Its pleasing to us that you had a great stay in our apartments and everything was set up for your relaxing holiday.

The apartment is in a great location, everything you need is literally within a 5 minute maximum walk. there is the Mercadona supermarket across the road where you can get all your needs at a reasonable price - so convienent. The town square is a few minutes walk away around the side of the marina where there are plenty of bars (CK's, McGownas, Stumble Inn, Casanovas - just a few that we tried and liked), and restuarants that cater for all tastes.
The golf course is across the road and having played the course twice now i can say its challenging with plenty of water to catch you out. make sure you have plenty of drinking water with you as its hot out on the course.
The 2 bedroomed apartment is brand new with lots of room, 2 good sized bedrooms with air con and a fabulous balcony that if your a sun worshipper, you will just love as it gets the sun from mid-day until late in the evening. A excellent sunbathing spot, plus it overlooks the pool so yuou can easily keep an eye on the kids.
We thoroughly enjoyed the apartment and the location and have booked to go back next year and take family to experience this great location of Almerimar. We thoroughly recommend this apartment in Porto Fino as it is in a great location with a good view out not like some of the others that we have stayed in in the past that get no sun and look out to someone elses terrace.
Many thanks for your review, our aim is to ensure that you have a relaxing holiday and we meet all your needs, which we take pride in achieving.
