It is surrounded by a terrace, which in turn is surrounded by lawns and plants. Perfect for relaxing during the day or after a round on the golf course.
i would never stay here again, we found that their was a lack of towels and pillows and the ones they did have were very worn, un-matching and discoloured, the pillows were old and stained (disgusting), i had to go out and buy my own towels as my sons refused to use them. The bedding was very shabby, it was bobbled, my sons could'nt sleep in twin bedded room as it was too hot so they slept on uncomfortable settees. The pool is situated in another block of apartments and the system of having to take your own chairs and towels to pool is ridiculous, it is the worst accommodation i have ever stayed in and would never return, my family and I have very high standards when it comes to accommodation and i new it was going to be 5 star but you do expect decent bedding and towels thank goodness it was only a four night stay as we could not wait to leave, the price was a lot too compared to some friends who stayed at the plaza, their accommodation was far superior for a cheaper price
This is unfair review and these are the points raised by renter and my reply to them directly.
Renter Complaint 1 - The bedding was old and only had two flat pillows, there was a shortage of towels which were mis matched and disgusting quality.
Owner reply - I am sorry if you think it was disgusting quality. But we and the previous guests think it is acceptable for self-catering holiday. I am certain they were all clean and fit for purpose.
Renter complaint 2 - There was no pool towels which we didn't use.
Owner reply - This is not stated in the advertisement and people take their own beach and pool towel when they go for self-catering holiday and in most cases even to fully-inclusive hotels.
Renter complaint 3 - The air conditioning or should I say lack of it, my sons slept on sofas as their was no air con in twin room:
Owner reply - Every room is listed with what is included. The twin room as well as the main bedroom states the following: an effective ceiling fan (this is not air-conditioner).
Renter Complaint 4 - Your photograph showed an apartment over-looking swimming pool which it was not and I think that is false advertising.
Owner reply - This is wrong. Please see the information added under each photographs. It clearly shows where the apartment is and what it is overlooking. The swimming pool states that it is a resident’s only swimming pool. Which is true.

A lovely apartment with spacious rooms and good facilities. The pool area is only two minutes from the front door and had very good sunbathing areas. The contact in Villamartin was friendly and very helpful. All in all excellent value for money!

Peter from Billericay
This is a good, well equipped apartment in a pleasant residential area just a few yards from the shared pool. There are some shops and numerous restaurants/bars in the modern plaza which is within easy walking distance of the apartment but a car is prefereable if you want to explore further afield. The beaches of Cabo Roig, La Zenia and Playa Flamenca are about 10 mins drive away and inland there are some good restaurants in the neighbouring village of San Miguel de Salinas. Our particular favourites were Castillo de Conesa, just outside San Miguel, The Market Street Restaurant and Las Brasas, a Spanish barbecue restaurant midway between Vilamartin and San Miguel.
This is a good place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing beach/pool holiday but also well placed if you want to tour around the area.
We had a good holiday. In general we felt the apartment was good value for money but that the cleaning charge was a bit steep.
The information about local charges are clearly stated on the website under extra section (http://www.rentalsystems.com/advert.aspx?ref=11852). The customer failed to read the information properly and thought it was hidden charges. The charge is paid locally to get the property ready after departure. The price is very reasonable and compared to other properties in the same area, probably it is cheaper than most of them. It is a standard extra for self catering properties.
Maria from London
This was a very nice apartment in a quite area. Everything you needed was supplied, even sun loungers for the pool area, parasol for the beach and inflatables for the kids!! Air conditioning a definite bonus. Brian, the key holder, was a very charming man and couldnt do enough to help. I would definitely recommend hiring a car to get around. We had a lovely week in the sun. Thank you.
