The description of this place is far from the truth than what is stated. It say's it has internet, WIFI and TV. The only tv channels are in Spanish and there was not even a remote control. There … More
Anybody reading his please refer to previous reviews to get a very different point of view to what you can look forward to staying not only at the property but also the lovely and vibrant and ever expanding town of gran alicant ! , unfortunately the reviewers have failed to deal with the facts !! , and in some way I will try to rejig their memory of what happened n the day and days before their arrival ? ,
First of all as you will read they were only at the property for a maximum of 6 hours , they arrived at aprox 2 pm , they were fully aware before arriving I was at work until 6 pm that day , and as I always do , let guests get settled in ring to make sure all ok and give any information they might need once settled , they left the property at 8pm ? To go elsewhere ? When I rang them they ignored my call ? , was there no electric ? No water ? Was the place not clean for them ? Was the airport pick up I had arranged for them saving them money a problem ? Did they not want the extra day I had agreed for nothing to leave their cases as they had a night flight ? NO THE TV WASNT WORKING !!?? , now mayb it's just me but is this really a reason to storm out of a property ? Be rude to my lovely key holder and demand their money back without 1 st speaking to me about their concerns and why not answer my call ? The fact is YOU ARE IN SPAIN !!!!! And believe it or not we sometimes get SPANISH OR SPANISH SPEAKING GUESTS ???!! , who maybe enjoy watching tv in their own language ?? And , if they had let me explain how to turn the TV back to British channels , it would have took aprox 30 seconds over the phone how to do this , as for the wifi again you are in spain and sometimes things don't always work as good as uk , however every bar restaurant supermarkets cafe s all have FREE WIFI , AND THERE ARE EVEN INTERNET CAFE S IN GRAN ALICANT ,we live in an urabanisation And we have a shared community wifi , if something is not working or not right on arrival be rest assured ,I or we. , will do everything possible to put right asap for our guests , and would definitely compensate for this if need be ,
The next issue seems to be again as the FACTS STATE. in my advert the summer outside showers were not working ?? , now I'm not sure what part of the uk summer start in the middle of March ??? But last time I checked it's normally June before we hit summer here but in spain thankfully it's around middle of May until sept. , so as stated these are readily erected and put up in the summer months , please enjoy they are lovely for cooling down in the very hot summer months !!!!
Finally , anybody who hasn't been to the property or gran alicant , it is built 150 metres above sea level and the views are fantastic , there are many ways to get around , buses , road trains , taxis , and yes you may even have to walk to the nearest shops banks supermarkets etc which I will happily return anybody's money if they use a stop watch and it takes them more than 7 minutes !! We have elderly freinds family members and young grandchildren who quite happy enjoy a nice relaxing walk , but if walking is not for you local taxi drivers will take you anywhere around gran alicant for 5 euros , very cheap compared to uk !! ,
I hope once you have read this you may consider staying at casa bell and please be assured we do everything we can to make our guests happy ( given the chance )
As you will notice from the booking calender we have a full summer of guests ahead both old and new , but many are people who are returning from last year ,also when you arrive at the property please find time to read the guest book which is full of lovely comments and thank you s from people over the last few years ,
Finally I have to say we are not diverse from suggestions or criticism about the property and listen to any thing that will make now or in the future a happier stay for our guests , but in this instance I really do feel the need to respond ONLY DEALING WITH FACTS .
