Boutique Beach Apartment
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
A beautiful, modern apartment on Santa Pola's best-kept beach, close to the town centre and 16th Century fort. Our flat is brilliantly located in the best area of a very special town. Alicante airport is a convenient 15 minute drive away and we can arrange to collect you.Our 4th floor apartment (lift and stair access) is modern, light, airy and comfortably furnished. The kitchen and bathroom were re-furbished in 2011 with all new appliances. We have a lovely double room, a twin room, and a single room with a spare bed suitable for a child. In addition, there's a balcony and sitting room with TV, DVD, iPod speakers and radio.
French windows and celiing fans keep it cool in the summer, double glazing helps keeps it warmer in the winter.
Great restaurants, shops and bars, miles of great beach, watersports, fishing harbour and the marina are all within minutes' walk, with great golfing also nearby. Siesta is generally from 1-5pm so the shops shut, but the restaurants stay open!
Pola Park is also a walk or a bus ride away and a great day out for families, with slides and rides a plenty! Dive schools and snorkelling trips are easy to book from the Marina.
All our guests are looked after by Patricia who lives locally in Santa Pola and speaks English, Spanish and French - she takes the bookings, arranges for airport transfers if you want, and is generally available to help if you have any queries or problems - we can't recommend her highly enough.

A stylish, modern holiday flat in the heart of Santa Pola. Crisp, clean, and ideally located for couples and families. No need to hire a car. iPod dock included so bring your music with you.
|Further details outdoors|
Our balcony opens out on to a side street from which you can see the beach and the sea.
All bookings will be finalised through our English-speaking agent, Patricia, in Santa Pola, available to greet you at the airport if you wish. When you confirm your booking, she will send you a form, ask you for a deposit, and take the rest of your payment in Euros on arrival.
The bar which opened nearby, playing live music on a Friday and Saturday night, IS NOW CLOSED so there is no longer any noise disturbance from them.
Please be aware that the first week of September is fiesta when the whole town is on holiday, partying late, all week long! It's great fun but noisy. I do not recommend this week for families with babies or toddlers.
From 1st April 2015, we are introducing our first rise in rates in over 6 years. Low season nightly rates have risen from E48 to E50, Mid season from E57 to E60 and High Season from E77 to E80. We hope that our regular guests will appreciate that the increase is only very slight and is fair given the current economy and the condition and quality of the flat.
The Valenciana region
Santa Pola is one of the jewels of Valencia, lying on the southernmost stretch of the province of Alicante in a calm bay. It's mild climate and the hospitality of its people make this major fishing port a must.
Beautifully laid out squares intermingle with busy streets and historic ruins and in the centre of the town stands one of the most impressive castles and fortresses in the area, dating from the 16th century. In the park Palmeral you'll find a wonderful Roman mosaic on display, along with the remains of a Roman villa and the Roman fish factory.
Opposite the castle is the Plaza de la Glorieta which comes alive in the evenings as all the locals meet to chat.The town also offers a marine museum, located close to the new town hall (used to be the police station), several towers and viewpoints and a boat ride to the nearby island of Tabarca.
If you tire of the beaches then you can discover the beauty of the nearby natural park of Las Salinas where you may be lucky enough to see the resident flamingos.
Santa Pola is a wonderful town, thriving on tourism yet managing to retain its culture and tradition. Miles of golden beaches stretch the full length of the town, the port is a hive of activity, day and night and the town has an ambience that suits all ages.
On arrival, you may wish to visit the tourist office. It's attached to the town hall which is the building opposite Hotel Polamar, only about 100 metres from the apartment.
The resort has 6 beaches, all with golden sand and a fully operational fishing port and sports marina. All manner of water sports can be found here and because of the fishing industry, fresh fish can be found all over the town's restaurants. Daily markets have fresh fish, straight off the boats. The Saturday market, near the park is a bargain hunter's paradise.
The well-organised marina offers sailing, fishing and regattas. The Santa Pola Nautical Club is one of the finest sites on the coast with a rowing, sailing and canoeing school. Diving is also popular in the clear waters. Because of the heights of the Santa Pola Cape, you can also enjoy paragliding and hang gliding.
Throughout the year Santa Pola has a number of important fiestas in which locals and visitors participate. The year starts with a colourful and noisy fiesta to break the winter monotony. In March and April come the half-year pageants of the Moors and Christians. In June there is a Romeria or pilgrimage to the hermitage on the cape and just before mid-summer, on July 16th, the local sailors pay tribute to their patron saint, La Virgen del Carmen. The highlight of the year has to be between 1st and 8th September in honour of La Virgen de Loreto with street processions, parades and giant parties. The year finishes its fiesta cycle on December 10th with the arrival of the Mother of God, by sea.

Perfect apartment in an ideal location only a few steps from the beautiful beach. Really comfy beds and sofa, very modern well stocked kitchen and a lovely powerful shower. Santa Pola is great for families or couples, lots of restaurants and bars and a very safe clean beach. Would definitely recommend both the apartment and Santa Pola resort.
Thank you for your helpful and positive remarks! I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable - please let us know if you would like to stay again in the future.

"Well placed apartment"
Santa Pola is a very centrally placed city for excursions in the area of Alicante + you will find a very nice beach just in front of the apartment. Santa Pola is a typically spanish town - and as with most of the towns in this area also hit by the financial crisis. The apartment is placed in an eldery building - but the interior has been updated and fullfill in an execellent way most needs for a holiday apartment. In the summer period - the balcony and apartment is not to hot due to a light wind. The view from the apartment is not execellent - but gives you a feeling of what is happening in the neighbourhood of the apartment - which is the spanish way and not just looking to another holiday apartment.
Thank you for taking the time to write a positive review. I'm pleased you found the flat in good order and enjoyed your stay. I hope we can welcome you back. I agree that Spain is suffering from recession in general but the thriving marina and fishing industry are helping to keep Santa Pola buoyant and attractive.

"Nice apartment clean child friendly easy access to everything necessary to a good holiday."
This was our first visit to Santa Pola and we were a bit afraid of what we were going to find.
But to our surprise and delight we found a very nice and clean apartment very close to everything neededbeach, pubs, restaurants shopping center supermarket etc.
We went after a quiet holiday with our baby girl and really this was to give her the first real holiday at beach and my god she made the most of it couldn't get her out of the sea and i say we must have built hundreds of sand castles hehehe.
But if you are looking for night life fun there is loads of nice bars restaurants everywhere .....in the new marina that is in development at present there is a very nice bar that has just open the week we were there and this is beside an excellent tapas bar that is always full.
Santa pola i would go back tomorrow and i do recommend it really enjoyed .
Contact with the owner and representative was excellent no problems at all.
Thanks so much for your generous and helpful review - it's always a pleasure to know that people love Santa Pola as much as we do, and enjoy the flat. I do hope we can welcome you back again.

"What a location!"
Stayed in the apartment with 2 other friends (mums escaping for the weekend!). It all seemed so stress free - a 20 Euro cab journey from the airport and you are there.
Cross the street to a lovely beach (we were swimming in NOVEMBER!), and there is a little beach bar.
Within seconds of the flat you can pick a couple of places for breakfast/tapas/beer (very reasonably priced), and a number of great shoe shops!!! (Try Renatta's just a couple of doors to the left as you leave the flat!!! - take extra spending money and a bit of extra bag space!).
My Spanish is a bit weak but the locals were very encouraging and friendly and we muddled through happily.
It has the makings of an easy holiday (for kids, couples or friends) given that the apartment has been renovated (new kitchen and bathroom) has 3 good sized rooms and a balcony and mostly thats its BANG on the beach.
Santa Pola is very pretty with plenty going on.
Thank you for a super review with plenty of helpful detail for other future guests. I hope you can visit again.
