Why Mark Newton chose Santa Pola
Great Beach. Great Access. Highly regarded urbanisation based at the foot of the hill, not the top which means beach access is easy. A great urbanisation with a quiet internal view away from the road. Great pool.

Overall opinion of holiday.
Public transport very poor for this area. Beach quite the distance away as are the supermarkets. Other than walking each day, not much else to do. And now I have to post keys back to owner. Why could we not leave them in the apartment. Very inconvenient.
A small Spanish town in November is unlikely to have Benidorm attractions. The joy of the apartment, that others enjoy is the peace and quiet. The beach and shops haven’t moved since the last publication of google maps which is always a good research tool. The beach is a five / ten minute walk away. Most find the small parade of shops 1 away provides all you need for short breaks. As for sending the keys, not sure what to say apart from I have to get them back somehow.
Lovely location, ideal if you dont want to use a car, everything is on the door step.
Lovely pool area and quiet most days. Surrounding area has good choice of places to eat
Perfect little retreat :-)
This little villa was just perfect for us. Situated inside a gated complex and within walking distance of bars/restaurants and the beach. Public transport is available too which is great as it’s literally just outside the complex and runs until late.
The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The pool Is also inside the complex but secured inside its own gated area too, it’s large and very clean and well kept.
The owners were friendly, easy to contact and very quick with replies if you had any questions.
We will definitely be returning. 😁�🌴�☀️🏡�
Lobely apartment, perfectly situated for a very easy stay. Lovely restaurants and bars one minutes walk away which is ideal! The pool is amazing and very clean. Will be booking to go back next year!
Fully equipped and more!
Little dated but soon become comfortable in the homely surroundings. Nice and clean with plenty of apartment extras, such as hairdryer, sun loungers, condiments in cupboard, books, English tv, beach towels, ect....
This is the second time we have stayed at this apartment and we love it. It's well equipped, clean and in a great location. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from only a minute away, all the owners are friendly and helpful. Mark is very efficient and helpful. Definitely will return.
