my wife and i have been married for 42 years and have lived in the rochdale area most of our lives apart from a 5 year stay in canada.our dream is to move to our apartment in spain when the time is right,until then we are happy for guests to use it for a nice vacation in a beautiful part of the world.
Glynn & Coral Jones purchased this apartment in 2005
we think our property offers great value for money alongside cheap flights from the uk and other countries.it is surely a beautiful part of the world.
as well as being the healthiest place in europe to live due to the salt lakes the area is well served by numerous beaches only a short distance away.
we have rented the apartment twice and have found it to be clean and tidy on both occasions. The roof terrace is brilliant for private sun bathing and the pool is across the road which is great for all the family. The area is quiet but there are excellent bars and restaurants within walking distance. A car is advisable if you want to explore surrounding towns and beaches. There is a supermarket on site which is well stocked with a good variety of fresh food ie; fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg to suit everybodys tastes at very reasonable prices. I would rate my experience at this property as being excellent.
Overall the property was clean and tidy. The pool is great and just a short walk around the corner as is the Supermarket and two Restaurants/Bars. Wi Fi is also available at the MoLounge Bar which is a 5 min walk away. Los Montesinos is a quiet sleepy town but the square is a lively place on a Saturday night with Live Music till late . We highly recommend Bobbie Jos Bar for dinner. A rental Car is a must to get to the Beaches and other attractions of the Costa Blanca.
i found the apartment to be ideally placed for a perfect holiday whether you are a beach lover or enjoy the rural aspects.it is set amongst the lemon groves yet is only around 10 minutes drive to some fantastic beaches.the town of los montesinos is typically spanish and everyone sits around the square in the evening with drinks.the property is very clean and well looked after, i really enjoyed the private rooftop solarium and am looking forward to my next visit
Our family was made up of two adults and one 8 year old disabled daughter.
* Property description was generally accurate and property was of a good standard plus the shared pool was a good benefit
* The customer service and local greeting arrangements were very good
* I would recommend this property to others
* There are many lovely attractions within easy reach by car & good local facilities
* We found one or two of the surrounding families/holiday makers were noisy late in to the evening on occasion
* Over all we enjoyed our weeks holiday very much and thank Glynn for his help and hospitality.
my wife and i had the pleasure of staying at this apartment in april 08 and i must say we had a great week there. it was spotless inside and out, the solarium is a real sun trap while the balcony is somewhere to escape the heat with a cool beer. the town of los montesinos is a smallish town but we found no shortage of bars and eating places. the beaches are great as well especially la-zenia. would definitely stay again
The property was as described, well maintained and very clean. The solarium on the top floor was very spacious and great for relaxing, sunbathing and watching the sun set with a G&T. The swimming pool is directly across from the apartment and this is also well maintained. There is a fantastic beach about 10 mins away, and we found a good selection of bars and restaurants in the local village, Los Montesinos. We will definitely stay at this property again.
The typical Spanish village of los Montesinos is a 15 min stroll through the lemon groves, here you will find numerous bars and restaurants. The El Paso bar in particular is recommended for a lively night of karaoke and live music. A hypermarket complex is 10 min away where you will find Carrefour, Aldi, Lidl, McDonald's, also the Habeneras shopping center with numerous shops, restaurants and bars. The bars have a good atmosphere and a late closing time of around 5am.you could also visit the ozone leisure complex for a game of tenpin, enjoy the casino or watch a movie in the 8 screen cinema. The coastline consists of miles upon miles of magnificent beaches and Spanish villages to visit all within easy reach of the apartment. The resort of Guardamar is 7 min drive away and is a favorite of the Spanish people and has retained its Spanish atmosphere. It is famous for the 9 miles of sandy white beaches and blue seas. There is a nature park to stroll around and a marina on the river Segura.
Golf: The apartment is handily placed for 6 fantastic golf courses at las-Ramblas, Villamartin, Campoamar, Bella-vista and la-Manga.
