"Very average place"
Although we met the owner who was very friendly and helpful, she did seem to make a point of letting us know she expected the apartment to be left in the state we found it in which would seem fair en… More
In response to your review on our apartment.
The swimming pool is outdoor and you must take into consideration that your stay was in October, therefore may not have be warm enough for yourselves.
As we clearly say in our website, the internet connection is communal and beyond our control, it is free of charge to our guests and normally provides a good service.
We do take great pride in our apartment and ensure that it is clean and tidy, providing clean throws for the sofa which is to everyone's benefit and most guests welcome this. All we ask is that guests respect the apartment and leave it clean and tidy, which as you know you didn't do, much to our disappointment.

We stayed 27 Oct - 3rd Nov, the complex was always clean and tidy, and the apartment was immaculate, we rent apartments regularly and this gains full marks. It had everything we needed for a very comfortable week and with it being out of season, having some heating there was welcome. Booking the apartment was really easy and the owners were really helpful and did everything to ensure we had a good time. The area was quiet at this time of year but we still managed to enjoy some good meals out at the campsite restaurant down on the beach, and Brambles. We enjoyed days out at Portman Guns, Cabo, Cartegena, and enjoyed walking along the beachfront in both directions to other resorts. We used the indoor pool on the complex and the gym. The complex and the area felt really safe, and the friendliest part of Spain we have been to. You could see the sea from the apartment and it was only a 2 minute walk to the beach. We would love to go back!!

"Lovely apartment with friendly and helpful owners"
We visited this apartment in the Verdemar III complex in Playa Honda in June 2010.
Our positive experience of it began with the booking process, as Paulette and Yolanda were always very quick to return emails and were very friendly, helpful and efficient in answering any questions and accommodating any requests. They were also on hand to give us a warm welcome when we arrived and they had arranged the very thoughtful addition of some essentials in the fridge for us.
The flexible start day and flexible duration of the let was really helpful to us, as we wanted to stay for 10 days and had a late flight home. It was lovely to be able to take our time getting organised on the last day and to have somewhere to relax until it was time to go home.
We were familiar with the area and the complex, as we'd stayed in another apartment a couple of years earlier, so we knew that Playa Honda was a nice quiet area, the complex was really nice and the apartments were right across the road from the beach.
There is a small supermarket within a short walking distance and a couple of bars and restaurants nearby too. We tended to stock up in the large supermarket at the retail park near Cartagena, but I would say that the local shop and restaurants were very reasonably priced.
A great new thing since our last visit is the pathway between Playa Honda and the next town, which skirts the nature reserve. We were able to go for a walk or a run along there most evenings.
In terms of the complex itself, the little heated indoor pool was still open as it was early on in the season. This was great, as our son had just learned to swim and he loved jumping in and swimming back endlessly!
The outdoor pool was a little on the chilly side, but I'd imagine as the weather got warmer, it would warm up a bit too.
The kids playpark was great for smaller kids and there are another couple of playparks within a short distance from the apartment too.
In terms of the apartment, it was perfect for us. Very modern and easy to keep clean (the throws for the sofas were a great idea to avoid small sandy children getting them mucky!). It's very spacious and the balcony is lovely to sit and eat out on. You can see from the apartment listing on holidaylettings that everything you could need is provided.
All in all we had a lovely holiday - if we were planning to go to Spain again soon, we would definitely give serious thought to going to going back to this apartment.
