“Lovely appartment in fantastic location, ideal to see the sites in Barcelona” Situated on a pedestrian street with bars and resturants on the door step and a little supermarket over the road, the apartment is in a fantastic location with everything we needed, and within easy reach of La Ramblas and the Harbour. We were sent information in advance to be able to plan our itinerary for the trip, and there was lots more information available in the appartment.
We purchses a T10 train ticket and got the train and metro to reach the apartment from the airport - which was easy, and the first time we have ever done this - and then used the ticket to use the metro to get around the city to Sagria Familia and the Nou Camp. We also had a day on the open top bus planning where we wanted to stop off in advance and using both the red and green routes– everything was ticked off the list, but we found so much more that we could have done and could have spent longer in some of the places we visited if time had allowed, so we will have to go back!
This apartment was perfect in terms of being well stocked and supplied (important for extended stays I'm sure) and in terms of location. Only a ten minute walk from Plaça Espanya or 15-20 to the Ramb… More
Thanks for your comments on our apartment and the location.
The apartment is on a pedestrian street that has lots of cafe's and restaurants and provides a vibrant atmosphere that guests enjoy. Just for clarity for other potential guests when you say 'the wee hours' the restaurants and bars close around 12:00 midnight during the week and a little later 1ish at the weekend.
Your feedback is useful and we will review our apartment description to ensure this is clear.
We are also really sorry to hear that some noise from the neighbour impacted your stay. The apartment is in a residential block so unfortunately the neighbours are outside our control. Other guests have noted how quiet the apartment is and although we have not experienced any noise when we stay at the apartment ourselves we will look out for it in our future stays.
Thanks again for staying with us and taking the time to provide your feedback.
“Clean, Spacious, Great Value Apartment” This apartment was in a really lovely authentic spanish area, walking distance to local shops and not far from a lovely Spanish town which has really lovely restaurants. 6 of us stayed in the apartment and it still felt spacious and lots of room for us all to eat and chill out together. The apartment was also very clean and everything you needed to have a relaxing stay was supplied there. The locations is also great as you are only 15mins from the airport but also driving distance from the beautiful down of Ronda and other Spanish towns. A great place to stay and great value.
“A little Gem” My partner and I decided to try an apartment this time and after a lengthy search on line we found this one.
The apartment is nice and clean and fully equiped and ready to go. The location is ideal with only a short walk to the beach and a 5 minute bus ride into town. Its in a quite picturesque location in a hill side town, Andy's bar is only a 3 minute walk away if you don't fancy a trip into town.
We would definately stay there again.
“ideal base for exploring the costa del sol” The description of the accommodation from the owner was very accurate.
Even towards the end of the season the accommodation was clean and tidy

Thank you for your review. It is always very helpful when clients take the time to leave details of their holiday on Trip Advisor like this. I have spoken to the hotel manager about the slight hickup at reception which I understand was resolved after just a few minutes. It seems that the new receptionist was not aware that the keys for private owners are kept separately to the keys for the studios owned by the hotel. This ensures that my studios cannot be used by the hotel without my knowledge, and the system works well. The handle to the bathroom has been changed to ensure that guests cannot inadvertently lock the door now! I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again this year.

“Lovely apartment, lovely view, lovely weather!” The apartment is really nice, clean and comfortable and the views from the terrace (particularly at sunset) are truly memorable. There is nice walk down to the port with restaurants to suit all tastes where we enjoyed eating outside and looking out to sea.
Thank you Ana for your helpful advice and information about local walks and things to see and do. Hope to come again some time!
“Amazing Villa Holiday” This Villa is 5 stars all areas were immaculately clean and services provided were excellent including plenty of lovely clean towels. Furnishings in the villa are to a high standard likewise is the comfort of beds and sun loungers not forgetting the fantastic sized pool. Pablo the owner was very helpful from the start of booking upto our checkout and even got essential groceries for our arrival and let us stay late on our departure day would definitely recommend to any groups or families looking for luxury relaxing holiday
“a quiet relaxing complex in a superb location ideal for couples looking for peace and quiet” Playa Blanca is a resort with the most fantastic promenade walk, lovely beaches ideal for children. Casas Del Sol is a very quiet complex very clean, lovely gardens and very well cared for.. The accommodation is clean comfortable and well looked after and has every thing you need to make your stay comfortable. Problems if any are dealt with promptly . The reception staff are extremely helpful and friendly nothing is to much trouble. I would recommend playa blanca and Casas Del Sol and Lanzarote has a superb climate.

“The children thought they were in Paradise!” With 4 lively grandsons, their parents and my disabled husband to cater for, this luxury villa ticked pretty much all the boxes. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped; there was seating in a variety of different parts of the property. There were lots of inflatables for people to play with in the pool. The selection of tv channels and films available was amazing. The only improvements I would have liked would be an external table where all 10 of us could sit and eat together, and a toilet for communal use on the ground floor. In the absence of the latter, everyone used the toilet in the en suite of our bedroom.
The football pitch was fantastic. We made up games using tennis racquets , frisbees etc.
The pool was really warm and easy for my disabled husband to enter. There was always shade if it was wanted.
It was excellent for a family holiday.
“33 El Cortijo - Villa El Hierro - An excellent Villa” Just returned from a fantastic stay at Villa El Hierro.
Weather was excellent.
The Villa is lovely, in a great position for access to all amenities and yet very very peaceful, it seemed like the other properties were not occupied it was so quiet.
Very easy to find thanks to the owners very clear directions
We found the Villa very clean and spacious
Villa El Hierro contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay.
The Children particularly enjoyed the heated pool
The handy Shopping centre with a Spar Supermarket is only about 15 mins stroll away as is the wonderful beach.
Although we did not attempt the walk, I guess it would not take to much longer to walk into Calletta
Great recommendation in Cicar as well they were great, very easy process to pick up the Car as the office is in arrivals therefore while the family collected the baggage I went to CIcar and all completed in 15 mins.
We will most defiantly be looking to return as soon as we can.

We will highly recomended villas to our friends.… More
Hi Robert ,
Absolutely delighted with that positive feedback . We have invested heavily this year to upgrade both Villa El hierro and Villa Gomera on the Fuerteventura Golf Course. It's reassuring that the investment is helping to make our guests stay even more enjoyable. Hope to see you back again real soon . Thanks a million

Thank you for your review . It would have been easier for me to not accept it and not have it posted online. However we need to take the good with the bad and I appreciate your honest feedback and your experiences at the villa. Upfront I want to say I am sincerely sorry you had all these issues . It was clearly a mistake to rent the villa as wheel chair friendly and I have removed this now so the same issue does not arise. The kitchen inventory items I was not even aware of and have addressed these along with the pool shower . The pool cover issue was due to a supplier being late with delivery (3 weeks late in fact). In hindsight we should have taken more time to prepare the villa for weekly holiday lets after the long term let where the previous longer term tenant abused our property quite badly. We now have it back to the high standard our clients expect. I am delighted that you still had a lovely holiday and I would welcome you back again with a promise that you will not have the same experience next time. Thanks a million . Derek
“Better than Advertised” Paul responded very quickly to our booking enquiry. He did everything he said he would on time. The directions from the airport were easy to follow and we found the villa without a hitch. Having phoned Paul en route he was there to meet us. He gave us a thorough walk through of all the equipment so that we had no problem with any of it. The house was immaculately clean. The equipment, fittings, bedding and furnishings were of high standard. The garden is spacious and secure for young children. The pool was clean to start with and cleaned mid week. There are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants nearby; 20-30 minute stroll or €4 by taxi. The area is clean and felt safe to me. I recommend this property and this location.
We contacted Paul after previously being let down very last minute and were delighted to find he could accommodate us.

“Excellent villa ideally located” We are repeat visitors to this villa on the very excellent complex of Las Brisas. The villa is spacious and comfortable and furnished in a contemporary style. A very positive feature of the villa is it's large terrace which has sun in late February/March until 6pm. It's location on the site is fairly tucked away but at the same time the wonderful large and warm pool is quickly accessible, as are the shops and restaurants in the resort of Playa Blanca. We have already booked our 2014 return visit.

“Great place.” Hi,
My partner and i have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Mare Verde apartment. We were not disappointed!! The apartment has everything that you could need or want and is very, very clean. Its ideally situated and within easy walking to bars, restaurants and beaches. It does look onto a busy road but i loved sitting on the balcony and watching the world pass by whilst enjoying a G&T in the evening. Once you close the doors you don't hear any of the traffic at all....... The pools are being updated at the moment but there were still plenty that were ok to use. I'm sure we will return to Mare Verde and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to everybody!! Oh i forgot .... we booked to be collected by the agent with the keys, its a MUST! Nikki was fab, picked us up on time on arrival and collected us for the airport on time too.
I was there for 1 week. Very nice and clean, well equipped apartment with good location. I had a transfer from and to the airport, driver's name was Billy. He was very nice guy, absolutely helpful. I … More
“Fantastic Family Holiday” We have just returned from an amazing family holiday in this lovely apartment. This is our second time staying here and this time we travelled over the May half term. We had our two children with us, 5 and 12 years old. They spent the majority of their time in and around the pool as they loved it there but we also walked to the Es Forti beach (about a15 minute walk) and the Cala Dor beach which is in central Cala Dor just around the marina and up into town. We didn't rent a car this time as we like to walk, and most evenings we would just go to the marina for dinner and drinks.
What may be useful information is for a short- cut down to the marina we discovered a lift that is located in the road just in front of the complex. This is good to know for those with mobility problems or buggies. The lift is part of the restaurant GAOS and is signposted from the top of the road (just by the glass house which you can see from the apartments garden).
We used the bbq a couple of times in the property which is great for a relaxed evening in just enjoying the early evening sun in the garden while the kids could play safely.
The pool area and gardens are always immaculately clean and well maintained and despite it being half term was not over crowded.
The apartment itself was also spotless upon arrival and has everything one could need for a family holiday, including English TV (BBC, ITV etc) which kept the kids occupied on the odd evening that we stayed in.
Comfortable beds and lovely furnishings that you would expect of your own home.
We hope to book up again next year. We love Cala Dor and everything it has to offer and this is the perfect base.
“Golf del Sure” Beautiful, clean, well-kept apartment with its own terrace - which is the biggest advantage. It is located close to the small beach, very close to supermarket, pharmacy, bus stop and Irish pabu :) In the apartment was everything what I needed. Wifi worked perfect. Very helpful and friendly owner. Definitely I will back to Tenerife and I will be happy to rent this apartment again. If you need peace and relaxation I recommend 100%.
