excellent property with everything on hand and more! michelle and mark very helpful and couldnt have done anymore if they tried!only downfall was 4 english channels but when on holiday your not there to watch tv, but we had 2 boys under 3 years so had a couple of early nights in. Pool was good and even though 2nd week in October still just warm enough,beaches in walking distance but car hire recomended, no noise from neighbours and underground car park a godsend,
overall very impressed and right up there with properties we have rented previously in the area!! would i rent again? yes i would, will i? yes if the price is right!!
thanks for a wonderful holiday

An excellent apartment which exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious & very well equipped - the swimming pool was great & the kids spent many many hours there!! The beach was a short walk away - Cobapino was a particular favourite. It is also a short drive from all the tourist locations. There are also a number of good restaurants only a short walk away. All in all we had a great time & will definately be returning. Many Thanks

Property had everything you could have wanted and furnished to a very high standard. Swimming pool was also excellent. The amount of information left there about the area was very helpful and the added bonus of dvds and cds to use was a very thoughtful touch.
All in all we had a very enjoyable holiday.
The only reason which might prevent us booking again next year was the steep increase in price for the high season.

A very clean and well equipped apartment in a fabulous and quiet location.
We had a fanatastic holiday and will definately rebook at Sparkling Days.
Beautiful accommodation and we were lucky enough to have lovely weather for September. The Apartment was lovely and clean and very well equipped. Situated in a quiet residential area and only a 10 minute walk to Trianas beach bar which we would thoroughly recommend for an evening meal. Would certainly return. Only downfall was the next door neighbours dog kept barking.
Thank you for a lovely holiday
