“lovely Apartment” Just got back from a fantastic holiday at this apartment with my 2 girls..couldnt recommend it enough..the apartment is very roomy and spotlessly clean and like a home from home..will be visiting again next summer
“Beautiful Apartment” Thank you very much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful apartment. Not the tourist trap which suited us and was a quiet spot to use as a base to beaches and towns. Great Tapas bar on your doorstep, with locals and families in the majority. Supermarket had one of the best selections we have found outside of the usual hypermarkets. Great holiday.
“Very good but!” The bungalow by Cala Gran in Cala D'or is in a lovely complex and an ideally located close to the town. The bungalow is as close to the beach as you can get which can be good or bad depending on what you want. The bungalows are close together without being invasive which is perfect. Although there are plenty of steps down from the road and up from the beach. The apartment itself is nicely finished, although certainly not as pristine as the photos suggest and the bathrooms could do with updating. The facilities cover the basics, just about and not much else. Don't expect a welcome pack or a mid week laundry service or a dvd collection or anything but you have everything you need. Just! You're paying handsomely for the location and that's it but it is a pretty impressive location. The swimming pool within the complex is an added bonus but the location is key, close to town and beach. Perfect!
The only reason for the very good rating is the mealy mouthed provisions in the apartment, that could have tipped it into the excellent bracket but it was certainly disappointing.
Would I go back..yes. Is it a good location..yes. Was it worth the money..maybe. Was the €100 plus booking fee justified..no!
“A little piece of paradise” We have just returned from the most relaxing 12 day holiday we've ever had.
Flew into Malaga, and drive of less than one took us to our holiday home.
A beautiful apartment within stunning grounds, and set in a fabulous location with views of the mountains and the sea; the only sound you can hear from the garden is bird-song. The apartment was finished and furnished to a very high standard, and even had British TV. Very clean inside and out. The extensive gardens were immaculately kept, with the pool being our favourite aspect of the holiday.
It was a little piece of paradise and we truly relaxed while we were there. We have found a wee gem and will definitely be going back next summer.
“Great Apartment, Extremely Helpful and Organised Owner” Very impressed with the apartment which was in a good location, clean and well-equipped. Great to have wifi and a TV with English channels as we were in in the evenings because we were travelling with my young daughter.
We had been worried that the pool would be cold, but it was in fact pleasantly warm. It is easy to walk to the sandy beaches - you have a choice and hit them whether you go right or left. The beach immediately behind the apartments is a stone beach and where all the surfers go - great to watch (especially sitting in one of the restaurants right next to the apartment with a Sangria to sip on!)
The booking process was very easy and Richard, the owner, is wonderfully helpful and organised. He gave us lots of information before we went, and was extremely quick to respond to any queries we had. On arrival we found that we couldn't open the patio doors because they had been jammed by the previous tenants; Richard ensured that this was rectified very swiftly, was great at communicating with us and very apologetic.
As Richard knew that we were staying in for dinner on a couple of the evenings he recommended an Indian restaurant/takeaway across the road in the City Centre shopping centre. We very much enjoyed the food and the owner, Patwal, was very friendly.
“Great Apartment Would recommed” Travelled to Puerto Banus for a family wedding booked this apartment through Trip Advisor. From the very start we had very good communiations with the owners. We were met by Linda who had contacted us by phone, the welcome pack was amazing. The apartment was just as described it had everything we needed.
Private undercover parking is just outside the front door, the whole complex was very secure.
We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing holiday within walking distance of the town, the pools were sparkling clean with a lifeguard on duty.
“superb apartment” just back from a stay at this beautiful apartment. It is exactly as the photos show it to be. The balcony is a super size and gets the sun from midday for the rest of the day. The complex is so well kept and very clean.There are lots of local restaurants and a supermarket just outside the back gate of the complex. We are already looking forward to booking again !
“Lovely, clean, quiet, good value apartment!” Just arrived back from a week at this apartment and cannot recommend this enough.
It was a lovely, clean, spacious apartment with all the things you need.
We have a 3yr old and it was perfect for us, on the ground floor, had little touches like a bucket and spade and a little step-up which enabled our little boy to use the bathroom with ease. Having a washing machine was a godsend! He loved the pool, but be aware there is no shallow/ toddler area in the pool. Also able to watch his DVD's just before bed to wind down.
It was very quiet and relaxing with no loud music pumping out late at night! Not the type of place you would go if your looking for buzzing nightlife but that suited us fine as our boy was able to go bed at a reasonable time and we enjoyed a quiet drink on the patio.
Yes you need a car to get to the main part of town, but it's a 5 minute drive and everything you need is there.
Mariann who looks after the apartment was so kind and very helpful.
If your looking for a quiet holiday in a lovely apartment which is good value for money, especially for families with young children, look no further than this little gem.
“A wonderful stay at El Conde” This appartment has it all. The setting is beautiful. From the balcony and from the bedroom window there are views of the sea and the evening sunsets. It is right next to the beach but I preferred to take advantage of the rooftop swimming pool as it is often deserted and has spectacular views of the ocean. The appartment itself is tastefully furnished and a bed to die for! Loved the fact that it had a washing machine and a hair dryer. I am very much looking forward to my next stay in this very special appartment. Emma is lovely.
“A nice apartment in a great position.” Everything was as described and Philip and Kimberley couldn't have done more.
We received a message on the day before arrival to confirm arrangements.
We phoned from the airport and met Kimberley at the apartment which was spotlessly clean, bright, spacious and well equipped. It's balcony had a sea view and it's location was perfect.
We had English TV and fantastic Wi-Fi.
This is unquestionably worth a 5 star review.
“a lovely appartment in a lovely location” We stayed in the appartment in San Lorenzo over the christmas period in 2011 - the town of san Lorenzo is in a beautiful location and the appartment itself has wonderful views over the mountains from the front balcony. The appartment has a lovely home from home feeling, with lots of personal touches which made it a really relaxed and comfortable stay. In San Lorenzo the monastery of el escorial is quite awe inspiring and well worth several visits, the christmas full size nativity scenes throughout the centre of the town were also quite something to see and made it a very memorable christmas stay. We also did several walks into the nearby mountains, and to the city of Segovia with it'sancient aquaduct and castle was well worth a visit. A wonderful holiday and a lovely comfortable appartment with lots of helpful information supplied by the owners, i would highly recommend.

“This apartment and location was so relaxing,a stress buster.” Our trip to La Manga was without hassle.We flew into Murcia San Javier,a small and friendly airport.Hired a car without any bother ,drove the short distance to the apartment and were so pleasantly surprised with the location..........The deep blue Mediterranean on one side and the turquoise Mar Menor on the other.The Med was a delight to swim in and the Mar Menor was so safe and at a depth that small children can have such great fun in..we hired kayaks and went to the island .The apartment has every convenience for a self catering stay ,the kitchen is very well equipped .We ate out on the balcony every mealtime ,except when we ate out....... there are plenty of cafes and restaurants to choose from on the strip,and close by.The beds were comfy and the rooms cool.Also just ten minutes away is a lovely park with tennis raquet ball, and lots of amusements for the children ,with a friendly bar where the adults can relax whilst the children are entertained,and all for a few euro.brilliant!.......We will be going back .
“Very relaxing break” Ideally placed property in a quiet resort. Minutes from beach, lovely view, good clean pool area. Well equipped apartment for dining in...but in easy walking distance of excellent cafes and restaurants.
