My husband and I have just stayed at these apartments for 10 nights and were very impressed.
Booking and confirmation was so simple and all done though Vitoria herself.
The studio apartment was very clean and we loved the fact that we had our own secluded pool.
The apartments are just a 5 minute walk from the strip but you wouldn't believe as its so quiet.
The studio was open plan with twin beds, which we just pushed together lol, with a separate bathroom with shower over bath. A kitchette with a double hob, fried with freezer compartment, cooking utensils, kettle, toaster and crockery for 3.
A sofa bed, dining table and plenty of storage with a free safe!!
A fan was also included but to be honest, we only used it once as the apartments are in a walled garden so very cool anyway.
I managed to cook breakfast and a light lunch and we even had own own bbq, so self catering a breeze.
Plenty of small supermarkets within walking distance but if your after a large shop, then all roads lead to LIDL :)
There is also 2 continental supermarkets in Albuferia and to be honest branded item in the UK are expensive but if you choose local brands then its as cheap as home.

Top Tip - If you are a smoker than buy your cigarettes in town as the airports are just the same price and you will get to pack more before the airport!!!

All in all we will definitely be going back and hope that more people realise this place is a gold mine for a cheap family hol.

Vitoria will also organise transfers from the airport at a cost of 30 euro. We hired a car but even so, cheap.

Anymore info then please contact as very willing to help out fellow travellers x

Right near one of the busiest parts of town but you wouldn't know it, as it's tucked away and quiet. The owner, Vitoria, is extremely helpful and the room was spacious and clean with a good sized bathroom. We stayed in Room A but saw another room that wasn't so big, so it pays to ask. Beautiful grounds and a quiet, decent sized pool with sun on it all day and plenty of sunbeds. Would definitely recommend it. Don't miss the Blue Sky restaurant next door - great, cheap food and drink and lovely staff, Francisco and Cecilia.

“A very relaxing place to stay.”

We had a lovely relaxed time at the apartment. Only five in total so very quiet. A place where you can really chill out. But only 2 mins walk from a very lively strip. Loads of places to eat we found the The Cottage very good which was only 5 min walk. We had brunch on two occasions there. Very good Chinese on the right of the strip just before the hill down to the beach. Also found the Johnny Hooper Saxophone bistro. Bit more expensive than some of the other restaurants but well worth it. Entertainment nights may be the best and or Sunday afternoon. But note you may have to book. Its 5 min walk, in the opposite direction from the strip. We will definitely be returning at some point in the future.

Amazing value, lovely villa, gardens and pool, so close to the strip but still retains the secluded ambience, everything So close yet the day time is a amazingly peaceful, very peaceful and the strip is a 5 min walk, HAve eaten in most restaurants but none match up to the blue sky, unbelievable food and a great host for the evening
