"Nice place - Good value"
Our visit in Gran Alacant was only 5 nights this time, but it was 5 beautiful days with sun and bath (for the kids:). Also one day of paragliding for me too. I have been in GA-area 8 times the last 3 years now, and I like it more and more. The just amazing white sandbeaches of Carabassi with plenty of space. It is some walking if you want to go to the beach, supermarket and restaurants. I also want to fly paragliding, go to Santa Pola and Alicante so I rented a car as I use to do..they are quite cheap.
The Casa Bell was in my opinion one of the best bungalows I have rented in this area for that money. With astonishing views of the Sea, Alicante and the mountains from the top terrace.
The standard of the house was good and wifi that worked all the time (a must in the online addicted world we live in now:) not very fast 2-3Mb but OK. Warm water in the showers gets quickly cold, so be careful not stay to long if you are many persons. It is just 50 meters to the swimmingpool, were my kids played every morning. It was very quiet in the nights, with no bad noise. I had some problems to find the place first because of wrong phonenumber, but only one call to Allan and Pam was there in 5 minutes to show me the house and give us the keys. What I like is that Allan always answered my questions quickly by mail and tried to give good support. For a family with 4 persons I can really recommend this place as a Nice place and Good value.
I saw the other review complaining...If you want a 5 star hotel - pay for it!
Excuse me for my bad English..
Kind regards Tomas - Stockholm
Thank you Tomas , I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and that you found the house all that you and your family needed for your stay , especially as you have been to the area many times but found the house one of the best value in the area so many thanks for those comments , as far as the shower temperature the week before you stayed there was a brand new boiler fitted !? So maybe when I am over this week it just needs a few minor adjustments , I will look into this straight away thanks allan .

No Wi-Fi no internet and no satellite TV as stated hosepipe on roof and not shower as stated and a rude owner who was only worried about getting his keys back after we said we were leaving after 6hrs… More
Once again I find myself responding to these guests review , despite already dealing with the facts once , but for review purposes I will again ONLY deal with the facts and let people who read reviews make their own minds up , firstly I'm sorry these guests did not find things as they had envisaged , however the FACTS are that ,
1 . The advertisement for the house quite clearly states outside showers SUMMER MONTHS only , the middle of March is not summer except in Australia ? , these will and always have been erected at the beginning of JUNE (summer) .
2 . The TV and wifi were both working within minutes of the engineer visiting the property , the tv especially was only needing retuned from spanish to English ( we had a Spanish speaking guest before them in house )
3 . We always before people travel to the house send as much information asked for , and , give lots of details , answer any questions by clients , at no point before or during their short stay did these clients contact me with any problems until AFTER they had left the property .

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 .
