  • La casa es pequeña pero cómoda. Tuvimos algunos problemas a nuestro arribo (problemas relacionados con el departamento y su agua) pero la mamá de Raúl se mostró bien ejecutiva y se resolvieron en poco tiempo.
    El departamento está en un condominio, pero nuestra estadía fue muy tranquila. Hubo algunos detalles que faltaron, pero ya los conversamos con Helvia quien siempre se mostró muy atenta y bien predispuesta.

  • A huge thank you to Raul and his family who made our stay such a pleasant experience. Raul is an incredibly accommodating and gracious host. The apartment was clean and tidy, perfect for a couple or small family with full apartment amenities. It is in very close proximity to the beach, small supermarkets and great restaurants. The main centre is only a 5-10 min taxi ride away. We did note that the previous guest did not have access to internet, this did not bother us as we had 3G on our phones and the Internet cafe was a block away. Raul's family were also incredibly kind and offered an internet dongle, however we were more than happy to be a little disconnected from the world being on holidays! Raul and his family went out of their way to work around our timings, dropping keys off late in the evening and allowing us to check out late just before our bus arrived. We cannot speak highly enough of Raul as a host or of the apartment as a place to stay.

  • Very friendly family. Flat was nice and clean. however overall a big disappointment as flat did not provide us with all that was advertised.

    It was imperative we had Internet for our weeks stay, for work purpose and there was none. Only a small 3G dongle which did not work. Being out of season it was hard to access open Internet shops in locality. Which meant wasting much time & effort and cash traveling daily to centre to search for Internet cafés

    Being a block back from sea the balcony faced onto a site building next set of flats - ugly and unfortunately noisy some mornings.

    Water Luke warm and when reported They showed us a 'trick' with taps. This did not really work either- impossible to have bath.

    Although there was one small portable heater the flat was cold and drafty , I'm sure in summer it would be better.

    Raul did his very best to try and get Internet working and gave us almost instant replies to any messages we sent, offered us a refund and lent us a laptop ( kind but useless without Internet)

    beach is beautiful and being a new flat, I hope these issues get resolved for next tenants and it could be a great flat.
