Thumbs up from two-year-old beach boy

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip abroad with our two-year-old son and we couldn't have picked a better place. He loved the nearby beach and - on the rare occasions we could get him off the sand - the excellent pools in the complex as well.

The apartment provided just what we needed, clean and comfortable with a lovely balcony to sit on to relax at the end of the day. All within an easy half-hour drive from Alicante airport too, with just a short drive or long walk to get into town and our favourite restaurant La Caballeria (who knew two-year-olds liked paella with cuttlefish?!).

Any queries were dealt with quickly and efficiently and we would highly recommend this apartment, both to families and couples.

Relaxing end of summer break

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival to this beautifully presented apartment we were taken back by the pleasantness of the surroundings. As a family with young children we had full run of the pool, and amenities. The walk to the beach is minutes away, with such a clean and well looked after coastline we spent many of hours here. The apartment has plenty to offer and is maintained to a high standard. The walk into the local town, market and bars is a pleasant stroll. Overall a fantastic relaxing stay and look forward to returning again!

Lovely apartment in Guardamar

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to a two bedroom apartment within the smart Portico Mar development. Very clean and well maintained with excellent facilities. Great restaurant just around the corner. Superb location within walking distance of a beautiful beach, and a short drive to many local restaurants and shops in a delightful, friendly small town. Thoroughly recommended.

We have just returned from a week in this apartment at Portico Mar. We can truly endorse a break here. The apartment is immaculate and very comfortable with all the amenities we required. The balcony is large and equipped with beautiful furniture and most importantly gets the sun all day. It is also a perfect spot to watch the sunrise over the sea. The beach is five minutes easy walk away, is clean, with warm sea and bonus beach bar. The onsite restaurant serves amazing food at very reasonable prices. The owners of the apartment are extremely helpful and have covered every possible concern that may arise. However we can clearly state, we had none! We would highly recommend a holiday at Portico Mar. Thankyou so much.
