2013 Summer Holiday
First I would like to thank Pat & Peter for ALL their help making our stay comfortable & trouble free from the moment we landed. This was our third year staying in this apartment and as usual it was spotlessly clean. The apartment has a fanatastic view over the pool with a large balcony which is great for us as we have a 12 year old that loves swimming and we can watch over him while completely relaxed. Almerimar has 2 beaches (within 5 mins walk) and many lovely restuarants and still we have not visited all of them... we have always had a fantasic holiday here and have made some life long friends. We have already booked for 2014 and have extended to 3 weeks.
Thank you for endorsing the apartment and the level of service that we provide to you. Our aim as always is to try and ensure that your stay is as relaxing and stress free as possible. Many thanks for your return customer which is a true testament to the facilities on offer.
Let me say at the out set the apartment is a lovely place with all the amenities you could want, the beds were comfortable and the washing machine a very useful addition. Now the problem my husband and friend had was we asked mrs pat wood who looked after the place to see if she could see if any mobility scooters were available she got one for us but charged us 20 euros to do it taking the cost of the scooter up to 115 euros, lovely.When we were shown around the apartment she was in a rush so told us how to put the tv on but after she had gone the sky didn't work, she sent Steve out who lived close he said the sky wasn't very good in Spain. Unfortunately the next day the electrics tripped as mrs wood hadn't mentioned too many things on would do this we had no idea, we re did the electric box everything was working except the tv so steve came out and said the box wasn't any good and changed it with a new box .The next day while cooking in the kitchen the smoke alarm came on so on putting the extractor on the electrics tripped again everything came on except the tv, once again steve came out and told us on the 3rd visit not to put the air conditioning on when cooking an absolute farce, this should have been made clear from the beginning, it was not.When we came to go back to the airport mrs wood who we had paid 100 euros to bring us and take us back to the airport came late and told us there was a change of plans steve was taking us to the airport, then she hit us with the 100 euros we had paid as a deposit ,she was charging us 50 euros for the 2 call outs and that we had been told not to put everything on so we had to pay steve 50 euros, we found out on the journey to the airport she didn't pay steve 50 euros so she must be keeping some of it , disgusting Steve was embarrassed with her charging us that much, it spoilt our holiday because my husband is disabled he spent a lot of time in the apartment so needed a tv.Before we came away we cleaned the apartment windows floors all the rubbish was taken out to the bins even the wardrobe glass was wiped and that is how we were treated.When we booked this holiday nobody told us the season was only 6 weeks long so there wasn't much for us to do, so if you want a quiet holiday this is the place for you, myself and our party wont be coming back again very disappointed.
We are sorry to hear that you had some issues with your stay in the apartment . I have contacted all the individuals involved and were happy that nobody from Almlettings acted without the best intentions of the guests staying in the apartment.
Firstly the mobility scooter, originally you instructed us that you were going to source this yourselves but at the last minute asked for help as your supplier let you down hence the late availability charge. Our representatives went over and above their responsibilities in organising this mobility scooter and also stopping at tourist info centre to get info for you reference trips. This is not in their remit but they wanted to ensure that your stay was as pleasant as possible.
Electrical issues appear to be down to too much continuous load on the apartment circuit (ie 3 air cons, cooker, extractor fan, tv etc) which blew a circuit breaker, once this was replaced all was fine. This is the first electrical malfunction since the apartment was purchased 5 years ago.
I understand that the instructions to reset the SKY were not followed resulting in many call outs to reset. Our representatives do not work for free and these unnecessary callouts by the West party after being shown initially how to reset the TV resulted in the charge being passed on. We also understand that the West party were in a hurry upon arrival and were not interested in the meet and greet instructions being given to them. It was made clear how to reset the SKY as digital lock ups are frequent in Spain, but simple to reset.
Almerimar is a beautiful, quite location, this is its jewel in the crown, it is not a Benidorm type of location, the peak season is from June to the end of August but this is like most holiday destinations (school holidays etc) All this information is clearly available on the website.
Also the person mentioned above is called Spencer, we do not have anyone called Steve who assists us with the apartment. Any charges for services are sorted out on a account bases usually monthly which would be the reason why Spencer was unaware.
Again we are sorry that you experienced some issues with the electrics that affected the SKY TV receiver and apologise for that, these issues are regrettably unforeseen and totally out of our control.
