Apartment good situation good air conditioned 2 bathrooms all excellent very quiet area not expensive for taxis at night but lovely walk into town in daytime and of course terrific access to miles of flat beach esplanade
Stayed for 3 nights sept 17 for a mini break. The apartments are well maintained and spacious. Ideal for a family. Nice quiet area with 5-10 mins walk to the bars and restaurants. Stayed in Roquetas many times before and it is a lovely place if you want a place that it still very "Spanish". Had a great stay the only points were that a 200 euro deposit is taken on arrival and retuned when leaving and you have to clean the kitchen and take the rubbish out to the bins in the street outside. All in all great value for money and ideal for a family holiday.
Don't book this unless you don't mind very dirty rooms, terrible hot water system, fleas and fleabites and no electricity at times. Location is fine if you have a car, plenty of parking spots, reception staff were friendly. Probably the worst hotel I've been to.
Came here for two weeks, family of 4 people. The apartments are nice and spacious, but the kitchen is lacking some basic utilities e.g. we only had three forks and spoons etc. The apartment should have been cleaned two times per week, but in our first week we needed to go to the reception twice to ask for someone to come and clean as it had not been done. The cleaning was also very poor, we got clean sheets and towels but it seemed like not much more had been done e.g. the floor was still dirty and the bathroom as well. But the hotel itself is fine, close to the beach, nice pool and spacious balcony.
We arrived late Tuesday night and advised reception first thing Wednesday. Each time we called they stated a repair man was seeking a part and would repair the following day. This continued for several days. We were advised complex full therefore no alternative apartment available. We requested fans which were declined. Any decent complex would provide fans for clients if no aircon. This would have been a great stay if we could have slept at night. Reception never asked us on departure if we enjoyed our stay...basic Customer Service lacking....a smile and thanks for staying with us
We had a great holiday on our 3rd visit to Roquetas de mar. First time at these apartments and we knew the location before we booked. It really is only 5 mins walk to the beach and 10 mins to bars and shops. We loved how quiet the area around the apartments was, it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle and the surroundings are beautiful. We have seen a change in the resort since we first came 6 years ago it's much busier and there is a lot more going on. Thankfully It is still very Spanish and you get a real feel for the Spanish culture with plenty of Tapas bars around and Spanish entertainment along the beach front bars at night. The apartments themselves are spacious and clean. It is an apartment and not a hotel so yes you don't get cleaning everyday but there is a brush, shovel and mop provided. We had a maid come in 2/3 times in the 2 weeks with fresh towels and sheets and she gave the bathrooms a clean. We had a view of the golf course from the balcony which was lovely and the golfers gave you a wave sometimes as we watched them over breakfast. Nice watching the sun go down over the mountains at night. There is a laundry room in the basement which has two large washing machines and tumble dryers but you can also hire a machine for your room. Wifi was good, basic was fine but we paid for premium to watch Netflix etc. Pool was nice, plenty of sun beds although we prefer to lie on the grass. We also spend most of our time at the beautiful beach. We found all the staff at Pierre and vacances to very welcoming and helpful. Any minor issues we had were resolved promptly. We will come back to Roquetas de mar and will book these apartments again. Thanks for a wonderful stay. p.s plenty of places to eat out. Lilly's bar is good for a Sunday dinner if you fancy a taste from home. La grappa is a lovely wee traditional Italian restaurant near hotel playa Linda. There is a superb restaurant across from the apartments called Komo, food is of a high standard and staff are extremely nice. We went for our sons birthday and on our last night.
It was very dirty room: dirty floor, bath-rooms with hair of previous guests and rust everywere. Air in the room was as stagnant smell. Beds were uncomfortable with the rest of the packaging film. We heard our neighbours better than our children next door. In the common corridor constantly smelled of cigarettes and so on, ahd so on. What else? I would never recommend this place to another travellers.
After having a look at several places in the coast of Spain , I finally booked this place at Roquetas de mar, which is very well located 5 min walk to the beach. Is probably not the best beach-es in the Europe, but I can assure that you can have a nice time there. The place is not overcrowded , is calmed , and the food is good. Eventually I've got the best price , and I had the time of my life. I'm from Colombia, currently living in London. Colombia is a very friendly country , and coming to Almería really fulfilled all my expectations , with a very warm welcome and their friendliness. Once we got there , we were upgraded to one room , to a superior with two for our comfortability. There, we visited; puerto de roquetas , aguamarga , isla del Moro, playa de las negras. In tabernas village , you can visit MiniHollywood, 22,50 euros pp. children 12,50 with Texas kind of scenarios. Old wooden houses in the dessert. All beaches are grey sand , so do not expect the Caribbean. But once again, you can have the time of your life. Is very hot, very sunny , nice and warm. Lunch , an average of €65 for 4 people. I would recommend this apartments. I'd come back again. Many thanks.
Arrived here on 4 th July the air con wasn't working and the place was filthy dirty !!! Black hairs in the bed Towels were old and thread bare Would definitely not return here Pretty disappointed The staff were fairly helpful but we still had to sleep a night with no a/c No compensation or token discount offered
We really enjoyed our week, the apartment was very spacious and very clean and we opted for a golf course view with a balcony and not the sea view option, it was much quieter and cooler. We hired a car and this turned out to be a good option as the apartments were a little way off the centre, but it was only a 5 minute walk to the beach and promenade which were lovely and clean and there was also a nature reserve. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful especially Marcel who spoke very good English too. New York New York and Lilly,s restaurant served very good food with plenty of choice on the menu and drinks were very cheap, we ate most evenings there. The air conditioning worked beautiful.
