Description from owner


The Pad is located just 10 minutes' walk from the award-winning sandy beach lagoon, on the outskirts of the town often referred to as one of Spain's best kept secrets. Quiet and peaceful, yet only 5 minutes from the all amenities, including a weekly local market for bargain hunting, supermarket with an excellent fish counter, banks, bars and many excellent restaurants for eating out.

The Pad benefits from it's own private roof sun terrace which hosts a really nice BBQ, table and chairs and a viewing deck. At night, watch the stairs with a glass of wine, beautifully lit by the fairy lights surrounding the roof terrace.

The front door to The Pad leads into the spacious living room, furnished with a large sofa. Here is where the entertainment console is located, hosting a flatscreen HD TV with full UK satellite channels, DVD player with a huge library of DVDs suitable for all ages. In amongst the storage units, you will find children's books and novels, maps and travel books for the adults. We also provide colouring for the kids. We have pay as you use WIFI (around €1 a day) with a really superfast download speed.

We have recently replaced and put in a brand new bathroom suite upstairs. It looks amazing.

Also on the ground floor towards the rear of the property, we have the dining area. A foldout table and enough chairs for everyone. Need a highchair? We got one!

With one double, one twin bedroom and a single room downstairs The Pad is ideal for families, or golfing parties, with plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay.

The Pad is located within the Albatros complex containing 2 swimming communal pools, 1 for the kids. All within an elegant garden setting which is set in secure gated community. Everything is on your doorstep so definitely no need for a car!

The pad felt like you were at home good comfy beds comfy seating and 2 great outside eating areas downstairs and upstairs on roof . The complex has a great pool and well kept gardens We will return .

“Great Accomodation Close to all amenities”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2019

Great 3 bed town house with new shower suite upstairs only downside to that was still a lot of plaster dust left around from the refurbishment but I expect with the next clean it will have been removed - great base to exploring - every thing you need is in the accommodation and a great view of the pool from the lovely roof terrace.

Beautiful apartment equipped with everything you need. Had a great week here. We were met by Julie who was lovely. Would definitely recommend and we hope to book again in the near future. Thankyou.

Owner's reply: Thankyou very much and come back soon.

Four of us stayed in The Pad for a weeks golf. Pad had everything you could need and Julie was very helpful. Would stay again. Thanks James.

Owner's reply: Your welcome back anytime. Thankyou

“comfortable and relaxing”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2017

we have stayed at the pad twice this year and would recommend it to family and friends. It is comfortable and relaxing, like being at home only with better weather. It is perfectly situated with the pool a few steps away and the grounds of the Albatros complex are lovely and well kept. Look forward to visiting again.

Owner's reply: Thankyou so much and we would love for you to come again.


Reviewed 19 Sep 2017

Perfect place to stay with everything you need. James the owner; nothing is too much trouble and Julie the manager was absolutely fantastic. Would recommend a stay for families or couples.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much and glad you enjoyed it as much as we do.

“Has everything you need”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2017

Weather hot, Los Alcazares has plenty of bars, restaurants and beautiful beach with long promenade that goes on for miles. The apartment on the Albatross complex was very clean and had everything we needed. I was travelling with my son (21) daughter (16) and parents (late 60's) we all thoroughly enjoyed our holiday especially relaxing in the front courtyard and then swimming in the pool even if it was cold when you first got in. The apartment had hair dryers and towels which is a bonus for travelling light. There are 2 supermarkets and a Lidl within walking distance if you forget to bring anything! I would definitely recommend this accommodation and am missing the sunshine already.

“HOME from HOME”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2016

Myself, my husband our teenager and 2 under 6 years stayed at the pad for 2 weeks. It was brilliant, I normally find family holidays slightly stressful. But the pad was like home from home. It has everything you would have at home. from dvd player, music player, hairdryer and very important (for my teenager) wifi, cost us 22 euros for 2 weeks. The air con was amazing, not sure we would have survived the heat without it. Just a few steps from the front door was the pool, if you forgot something or needed the loo we could just pop back. All the amenities are very close just a few minutes down the road. the supermarket is open all day. And the bars and restaurants were reasonably priced. The whole family really enjoyed it and we will be booking again for next year.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the really nice review. We are glad you love it as much as we do and look forward to welcoming you back next year.

“What's not to love about it!?!”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

Excellent accommodation and location is superb......our second visit to the Albatross complex and you can make it as busy or quiet as you like. Accommodation had everything you need to make your holiday great! Taxi pick up to and from airport made everything hassle free. Just perfect

Owner's reply: Thank you both and hope you return again soon.
