We stayed here for 3 nights with 4 adults and it was perfect for what we needed! Great location just stumbling distance away from duquesa port and the amenities were great! The apartment had everything you need in terms of kitchen utensils and hair dryers etc.
All in all great value for money!
Very good location and communication with the owner who was very helpful.
Thank goodness it had heating though 🤣
Firstly, I was very surprised at the size of the apartment - it’s very spacious and has plenty of rooms meaning you can get away from each other at any time haha! Upon arrival there was essentials already stocked up such as water and coffee which meant you could have a bit of time to unpack and chill out before heading to the supermarket. Everything in the apartment is easy to find and easy to use - which I was worried about as past experiences in apartments I haven’t had a clue how to work the hob etc. The balcony is satisfyingly in the shade so although you get no sun it’s a lot nice to just sit and have a meal around the table because it would be pretty unbareable to eat if it had been any hotter. You have a lovely view of one of the 4 pools from the balcony & bedrooms. The pools are an impressive size although at certain points of the day you can be waiting round to find a sun bed as people throw their towels on and leave for the full day. However, if it gets overly busy and you haven’t been seen with your towels for a while the life-guard removes the towels giving other people an opportunity to have somewhere to sit. Only downside of the pools is that you’re not allowed inflatables and if you want to use a ball they are only allowed to be small. This wasn’t a huge problem just wish I had a heads up before we carried our inflatable all the way to Spain to be told we can’t use it. I didn’t see any signs about this and only found out when one of us tried to use it in the pool - so avoid taking/buying inflatables unless you’re going to use them in the sea. Of course baby/toddler sit in ones are fine by the looks of things. The location of the complex in general is easy to find and has everything around that you would need. A couple minutes walk in one direction you’re at Duquesa Port where there is many restaurants, bars/cocktail bars which I definitely recommend going and having a look around. A couple minutes walk in the opposite direction there are many more restaurants/breakfast places that are located right in front of the beach wall meaning you get a lovely view of the beach while having something to eat. The apartment itself was tidy & clean and nothing major that I could find a fault with. I would definitely return here and I definitely would recommend people to stay here. Plus Pierre is so helpful and replies quickly no matter what time you message him! Overall a 10/10 holiday & I wish I was back!
Lovely clean apartment in great complex, lovely pools. We went in early July and it was not busy could always get a sunbed. We did not have a car and used happy Transfers to pick us up and return to Gibralter airport they are great company to use.
We were near bars restaurants and could walk to nearest supermarket in 10-15 mins.
Only minor complaint is that sofa in lounge area not very comfortable to sit on when we were all sitting down as a family to watch world cup otherwise fab.
Spacious, well-equipped apartment in great location.
Enjoying a great location in Puerto de la Duquesa, we had a really good break in this apartment. It had plenty of equipment, was pretty well-maintained, the wifi was good, it was very spacious for us (being only two people) and it represented fairly good value for money.
What do I think was disappointing or could have been better? In no particular order:
-this is a huge complex, which is now showing its age and is a little bit `tired.` The apartment is set at the back with little or no view of the sea. You can see one of the swimming pools, but the view beyond is of a high rise block. The terrace, although a good size, does not get too much sun because of the location/position.
-while the apartment was pretty clean, there were a few areas where the standard was not as good as it could have been. For example, we found the fridge inside not 100% clean, we found an unclean serving tray above the fridge and some of the crockery was not completely clean.
-while directions to the property were fine, it would have been good to have had more specific information about how best to `navigate` the complex eg the `portals` (gates/doors) referred to in the information-sheet aren`t very clearly marked when you arrive in a car, alternative pedestrian routes to the seafront/the port (from the complex) could have been given - we discovered them eventually - and a little more information about what keys did what (ie opened which doors/gates) could have been given.
We have used self-catering accommodation extensively and are in a good position to provide a fair critique of a property and its `qualite/prix rapport` or value for money. This is a good apartment in a great location and the few issues noted above can (mostly) be tackled easily. They did not really detract from the overall enjoyment of our stay there, and they are noted merely as a prompt to improvement. I can recommend a holiday here.
We had a lovely week at DuQuesa. We were there for a wedding so several guests were also staying at the apartments and the children met up daily at one of the four pools. Pools were quiet (still early in the season) so plenty of sun loungers. Grounds were immaculate.
Apartment was perfect, clean and spacious and had everything we needed from towels to utensils. Even a little utility room.
Pierre was always available and helpful with quick response when I messaged a couple of times.
We were grateful for the bottle water in fridge and tea /coffee tray plus few items of necessities were left in cupboard which was appreciated.
Would definitely recommend apartment.
