When we looked at the photos of this apartment, we thought ‘this is too good to be true, what’s the catch?’. On arriving, Marisha was waiting at the apartment. She showed us around and talked us through the necessary information: keys, wi-fi code, etc. We didn’t need to trouble her for anything else during our stay. When she left, we had a more detailed look around… and I very quickly dubbed it ‘The Mary Poppins Apartment’. Why? Because it was ‘practically perfect in every way’! Location: just to the far side (east side) of Plaza Roja, which is the start of the main part of the resort, so you are a minute’s walk from amenities. The apartment is also very light and bright. There are real light bulbs and not those dreadful energy efficient things that so many apartment owners love to use. In addition to the main lighting, some extra spotlights have been put in, which is a nice and welcome touch. Size: plenty big enough for us two. I believe the sofa may also be a bed, but for me the apartment is not quite big enough for four. Facilities: newly refurbished, beautiful bathroom, washing machine, dishwasher, TV, etc. I want to show balance and find a downside, which is difficult. But an extractor fan in the bathroom would have been nice. And the shower head could have been a bit higher. Let’s just say I bent over backwards to get clean! Bedroom: THE most comfortable double bed in a rented apartment with its memory foam mattress! Plenty of wardrobe and shelf space, a chest of drawers and even a study desk complete with lamp. Pillows could be a wee bit bigger if I am being picky. Terrace: one each side! The front terrace is an absolute suntrap. If you know El Médano, you will know it hosts the world kite surf championships, so it can be pretty windy. And we spent many happy hours soaking up the rays (but not the gusts) on the terrace, whilst slaving over vodkas and coke… Pool (and entire complex): scrupulously clean and beautifully maintained. The pool area is cleaned daily. We didn’t use it, to be fair, but it is very attractive and we have earmarked it for next time. I could pick holes in it if I wanted to, and I’m sure some may. The ‘perfect’ apartment will be different for everybody. But for us, this one was practically perfect. We would definitely rent this apartment again!
