Bahia Feliz seaside apartment
We were greeted by Sasha & made to feel really welcome.
The apartment was perfect for us & 2 grandchildren - not too smart that you had to be so careful but also very neat, clean & well equipped.
With young children we were pleased to have a car for the middle week of our stay - pool is good but beach is only good at very low tides.
Some negative points (all minor)...
1 Could not find a single English channel on TV except some news channels so if you do need some visual entertainment take DVDs (internet is fine also)
2 Lady at number 30 - ignore her & do not let her stick her nose into your holiday
The good points....
1 Location as a base for trips is good
2 Sasha is very helpful
3 Site is safe & clean with a friendly atmosphere
Wonderful week in Bahia Feliz
We stayed in Villa De Mar. The property was amazing, on three levels, and a private garden overlooking the sea. The house was so well equipped, with everything we needed to prepare food in the kitchen. The top-floor balcony was great, again overlooking the sea, and with comfortable furniture. The first floor double bedroom also had a balcony.
The resort was quiet, and well kept, and ten minutes walk from the Thomas Cook resort with shops, cafes and restaurants, so the best of all worlds.
Any future visits to Gran Canaria, I would definitely want to stay in the same house.
A lot to be desired.
We enjoyed the location in Bahia Felix, but found a few things wanting with regards to the accommodations as they were expressed in the VRBO write up.
It was the little things that we found annoying.For example,there was no hand soap in the apartment,and only one garbage bag and no replacement toilet paper. These items we had to purchase shortly after ou,r arrival.
The safe was locked open,and when we brought it to Mrs Sascha's attention she said it had been like that for awhile and there wasn't any repairs scheduled. We therefore spent two weeks with our valuables not secured. The locks were changed on the exterior gates etc. And we were not made aware of it. Fortunately our neighbour advised us of it thus saving us from another disappointment.
We did enjoy the pool,but were disappointed that the pool bar was not operational as again the advertisement mentioned the nice view from the pool bar at sunset.
Again we enjoyed the location of the apartment,parking etc.,but it's the little things that make for a nice vacation.
Our stay was from the 14th of November until the 28th,2017. Howard and Colleen Firth.
Our family spent 14 nights there. I didn't right the review at once only because after arrival I could write only "Gorgeous! Super! Magnificent!" and it's not very helpful :-)))) The view from the apartment is breathtaking. Terrace is huge and multi-purpose. We ate there with kids during the day, had romantic dinners, kids played different games and last week I preferred to sleep there under the stars.
I am very picky on the cleanliness and usually have many issues to the owners. Sasha was the first who met my high standards :-)))) There is everything in the apartment you may need during vacation especially with 2 small kids. There was even the set of products for the first time. But even if you miss something specific just tell Sasha about it and she will arrange everything.
There is parking right near the house for your car (and the car is highly recommended at Gran Canaria). Also the location of the apartment is perfect. I'd say one of the best beaches of Gran Canaria is right in this locality (blue flag and excellent ocean). There is also the heated pool which helps a lot with kids if there are waves at the ocean.
Two supermarkets are 5 minutes within walking distance. The restaurants of Bahia Feliz are much much better, tasty and less expensive than at the south side (San Agustin, Maspalomas).
I'd highly recommend this property to the couples and the families with kids as well. Sasha, thank you very very much! With best wishes from all of us, Sally
Relaxing family holiday in beautiful surroundings
I understand the description given is a generic description applying to more than one apartment, however, it did not completely reflect the apartment we stayed in.
The complex is not a bungalow complex in the way British people would expect. Bungalow would suggest single storey buildings. The apartment buildings were 3 floors in height with each apartment on a single floor. However they were extremely attractive and well maintained. The complex was very secure though there were issues with the locks on some of the gates not working, though it was never far to an alternative gate. There was a night time security patrol.
The apartment was well laid out although the kitchen was a little small. It did not have the advertised dishwasher. The 2 bedrooms were a good size and had plenty of storage for clothes and the living space was also of a good size, accommodating a further person on a z-bed. The indoor dining space would have been a little cramped with 5 people round the table, but as we ate out on the spacious terrace in the evening it didn't matter. If your apartment for 5 had a balcony instead of a terrace, this may have been a little cramped. As it was we had plenty of space and could enjoy the sunshine from sunrise to sunset sheltered from the wind.
We could not connect to the wi-fi inside the apartment but signal was excellent on our terrace and in the pool area.
Sadly the Coconut bar lies empty as the owner is now said to have opened a cafe elsewhere. The pool area is beautiful and never got busy. It was cleaned every day, and there were good showers for use before getting in the pool. Plenty of umbrellas and sun loungers were available at no extra charge. The pool was attractively lit with coloured lights at night.
We were picked up from the airport by a friendly helpful Johan, and then greeted at the apartment by Sasha who was delightful and helpful (although a little forgetful after the kettle exploded!). Communication with the owner (or lack of response) caused some last minute panic before we left the UK but we understand that this was due to a problem with the Owners Direct servers.
Bahia Feliz is quiet and beautiful and away from the big resorts though only 10 minutes away by taxi. The local shopping centre and restaurants offered a reasonable amount of choice although it was all a bit purpose-built with no traditional feel.
I would definitely recommend this property but would suggest a few tweaks to the description.
Epic family holiday!
Picked up from the airport by Johan and taken to the apartment. We met Sascha (the property manager) on arrival, who was very friendly and helpful and gave us keys but was unable to show us around due to broken ankle but driver Johan helped. The apartment was perfect for our family of 4. The apartment was everything that we hoped for and more with every conceivable appliance, gadget and utensil you could dream of. There were also few provisions there for us so we didn’t have to go shopping straight away. The pool was amazing but the ‘Coconut Bar’ had some very sporadic opening times and on some days didn’t open at all, but when it did it was very friendly and welcoming but above all very delicious. Shopping, restaurants and lots of fun activities are all located very nearby. The promenade in front of the complex was a great for the sun-rise run and for walks into the restaurant/shopping area avoiding road traffic. The TV was in German only...not that we ever watched it! And the kids enjoyed the Wi-Fi.
We would be happy to stay here again and will definitely recommend this property to friends who plan to visit Gran Canaria!
Bahia Feliz is a small settlement with a very good infrastructure. There is a shopping centre, boutiques, restaurants, cafes and pubs, so that guests not necessarily depend on renting a car. You can enjoy a walk along the beautiful seaside promenade which will take you into San Agustin or Playa del Ingles within 20-30 minutes. In the settlement you will nevertheless find some inexpensive car hire.
Other Activities: Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, Aquagymnastics, Aerobics, Fitness Center, Thalassic Therapy Center
Golf: Of all the golf courses in the world many cannot compete with Gran Canaria, because the island has a special advantage: the climate as well as the possibility of being able to play golf during the whole year. Today Gran Canaria has six golf courses, they are spread out across the island with a distance of no more than 50 kilometres between each one. Shortly this list will be extended to a four further golf courses, which are currently being built. A further advantage of Gran Canaria golf courses is their competitive price, which is below the average. The Green fee of the 18 hole courses costs here about 50 Euros in the off season (between May and September) and 70 Euros in the remaining months.
