Great Place for a Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was perfect for us; spacious and fitted with everything we could need. We ate out the whole time as we were there to chill out and we were very impressed with the choice of bars and restaurants. We would come again. Thanks.

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic setting

Views from the balcony are stunning. Apartment has everything you could need whilst on holiday. A few more sunbeds around the pool area would be an extra bonus.

Lovely apartment and location.

  • 4 of 5

First impressions of the apartment was great....clean, roomy and nicely furnished. We took my elderly mum, and the lifts and underground parking was a great advantage as she's not very steady on her feet. The apartment is listed as being suitable for the elderly and infirm and on the whole it is....but maybe a grab rail in the walk in shower would be useful, as would some kind of shelf to put shampoo, shower gel, so you don't have to pick them up off the floor. My mum sometimes felt a bit unsteady with nothing to hold on to whilst showering.

Also the apartment is listed as having WiFi. This is extremely hit and miss. We couldn't get a signal at all in the apartment, which we wouldn't have minded so much except for the fact that my husband had to do some work during our holiday.

Overall, Duquesa is,a gorgeous place and we very much enjoyed our stay there, just those couple of niggles stopped us from giving the apartment full marks.

The three of us loved the place on first site and all commented that the advertising was accurate

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of three very active pensioners, myself, my husband and our friend so the apartment was perfect for our requirements. The view from our balcony was amazing from early morning until late evening with the beautiful marina as a backcloth to the steady stream of dog walkers and holiday makers of varying nationalities.

As we don't cook while on holiday the variety and quality of restaurants within such easy reach was a joy to us and we enjoyed a different meal every evening.

The beach was very close , clean and with very good facilities and the small local supermarket stocked everything that we needed so for us this was the perfect holiday.

Taxis and buses were available when we wanted to explore and we spent a brilliant day in Gibraltar enjoying the breathtaking views.

The boardwalk enabled easy walking along the coast in both directions and we enjoyed a strole on a few days With a rewarding drink at the end!

The marina becomes alive in the evening with live music and a constant flow of people which creates a vibrant atmosphere which appealed to us as we could sit on our balcony with a nightcap and people watch..

In conclusion I would recommend both the apartment and location to anyone who is looking for a lively upmarket place to stay in sunny Spain !
