Reviews For Our Playamar II Property.

Albir Apartment For 6
Second time we have stayed at Playa Mar 2. Ideally located in the heart of the Albir town. So close to the beach, bars and restaurants, just a short walk from Consum supermarket. There is even a small shop next door to the estate agents. We had a party of six females for a special birthday party, that apartment is ideal for up to six guests, we did not use the swimming pool this time as it was a tad too cold to use yet-but is lovely. The apartment has two bathrooms, the double room has an en-suite which is ideal. There is a six seater dining table and chair but also has a massive covered balcony with amazing views of the beach and sunsets. We have flown home today and the deposit - minus the electric costs, are already refunded into our bank account - thank you Mike we will be back again. Sheran and Pat
"Thank you for your lovely feedback on our Playamar 2 property, it is so nice to hear you had a great time. I look forward to hearing back from you when you are ready to revisit Albir again."
Thanks Mike for the use of Playamar ll again. We had a relaxing week, the improvements to the balcony windows makes the view even better than before. The hand over was smooth as usual and as promised you contacted me the day after we returned to the UK with the bond refund. See you next year.
"Thanks for your feedback, especially about the new balcony windows we have installed - it so nice to hear that these improvements are appreciated. We be waiting for you, same time next year! "
Had a great holiday in September like home from home which is what is required for a longer stay. Spotlessly clean, however I do think the rug in the living room needs cleaning or replaced. The noise level has been improved because of double glazing but the double bed in front bedroom is quite uncomfortable. Anything else I cannot fault - change of towels and bedding each week and we were made up with the welcome pack! So generous really enjoyed our stay which is why we have booked again for next year as the views are to die for. June
"Thank you June for taking the time to give us your feedback on our Playamar II property. Your comments are invaluable to us as it is the only way we get to know if are doing things right! I will inform the cleaners about the living room rug but the issue with the bed must be a personal one, as no other client has mentioned if before. Even still, we will be seeing you again next year and we look forward to accommodating you again."

Thank you Mike for allowing us to stay at this wonderful apartment in ALbir. I have to say everything was as described. This is a lovely 3 bedroom apartment and it has a separate kitchen and living room - so there is plenty of room. The balcony is big with beautiful views of the sea. It was great having wifi and television - but we did not watch that much of it - we were too busy out enjoying ourselves. The apartment is spotless clean and thank you for the welcome pack on arrival. The pool is lovely - it was nice to get in and cool down. The apartment is central to everything - beach just across the road and local supermarket consum 5 minutes walk. There is plenty of bars and cafes around too. Booking with Mike was simple and straightforward. We really enjoyed our stay here and would have no problem in booking again! Once again thanks for everything we had a great time.
"Another satisfied customer - it is always great to get positive feedback about our Playamar II apartment. No doubt we will be hearing back from you in the near future!"
Just returned from our family holiday at Playamar II. Had a really lovely time. Fantastic accommodation. Everything we needed and furnished to a very high standard. Lovely situation within minutes walk of the beach. Mike extremely helpful and went out of his way to make our stay perfect. Lovely spacious apartment, everything it looked like on the pictures. Could not fault it at all. The only thing I would say is if you hire a car and use the garage do not hire any car too big as it is quite a tight fit parking. The noise situation did not really bother us at all as the triple glazing fitted did cut out a lot of the noise. The windows on the balcony do lift out but it maybe a bit tricky for some people. We did not really use the pool as there are not any sun beds but the beach was only a few minutes away. If I was to nit pick the blind in the second bedroom was broken which Mike knew about and assured me he was in the process of sorting. Would definitely would recommend staying here. Thanks Mike.
"Thank you for taking the time to review our Playamar II apartment, your feedback is really important to us. It is so nice to hear you had a great time - you raised some valid points especially the parking, whoever designed the garage must have had a bad day! The Playamar II is a residential block so sunbeds around the pool area are not provided - however there are a number of local shops where cheap ones can be purchased. The blind in the second bedroom has been an issue for a while - being inbuilt from the outside of the building to replace it involves working from the outside of the building four floors up! We look forward to hearing back from you again when you are ready to revisit the area. Thanks again."
We have stayed in Abir several times and this is the best apartment by far. Beautiful view, all home comforts including English tv, comfy seating and beds, great balcony which gets the sun in the morning but is still very warm throughout the day. The windows on the balcony fold back completely which was brilliant. The apartment is in the centre of Albir with bars and restaurants on the doorstep. A lovely surprise was the welcome pack of tea, coffee, milk, orange juice, wine and biscuits so we didnt have to go shopping on our arrival. There were also small packs of shampoo, shower gel and hand and body lotion. The apartment was spotless and we will definitely return. Thank you Mike.
"It is always nice to hear back from our guests so thank you for taking the time to write a review on our Playamar II property. We are so glad to hear that the little details of the welcome packs we provide are appreciated. We will be here waiting for you to get in touch when you are ready to book again."
We have Stayed previously in La Siesta apartments in Benidorm which are also of a high standard. We arrived Sunday at lunch time and shortly after received a call from Mike informing us the apartment was available 3 hours early which was a fantastic surprise as we could get settled in and enjoy most of the first day. The apartments really are 5 star with nothing missing and a nice welcome pack left for us. Deposit refunded first thing next morning absolutely amazing! Plenty of bars and restaurants to visit and we will be back soon! Paul and Jeanie
"Another fantastic review from one of our many regular clients! We are so glad to hear you had a great time in our Playamar II apartment and hopefully other potential guests will find your feedback helpful. See you very soon."
Great stay at this lovely Apartment with great views, everything you need is provided even down to sun hats and an umbrella , we loved breakfast on the glass covered balcony (that draws back for a much bit of sun) full oven job and microwave so home from home cooking if needed or fantastic takeaway from Pepe 50 meters to the right , nice little pool to cool off or just to sit around , the only thing missing were a couple of little sun beds that could easily be stored in the Laundry room - wild have been nice to chill on a bed after a refreshing swim in the pool , will definitely be back.
"Thank you for your comments about our Playamar II property. Some great little tips for future clients. Reference sun beds - these are not supplied for a number of reasons, firstly our insurance company will not cover any accidents and secondly hygiene - they are so hard to keep clean when sun lotions and oils are used on them. The majority of our guests choose to use the beach where sun beds are rented, but if you really want to stay around the pool area then CHEAP sunbeds can be purchased in many of the local shops. We look forward to seeing you again next year!"
We were a party of two couple holidaying in February 2018. We chose the apartment through Trip Adviser but was soon in Email correspondence with the owners which made the booking easy (Even a phone call at one point to confirm items were included so we did not have to take) The apartment fitted are needs perfectly with the option of three bedrooms. The welcome of the owner was much appreciated as was the full tour of all the facilities including the parking in the garage. A couple of bulbs were not working on the tour these were swiftly fixed the following day. The welcome pack was a nice touch with everything to get us started. The apartment was well equipped right down to a hair drier and a FREE safe. The location suited us fine within easy walking distance of all the amenities the town has to offer. After reading the previous reviews we were a little worried about the noise as you have to choose the front bedroom for the spectacular views, yes there was some talking from the bar but this was only noticeable after the bin men awoke us one morning at about 1am. As promised our damage deposit was refunded within a day of our return back to the UK. I would not hesitate to use this apartment again should we holiday in this area. Thanks to Clive & Mike.
"Wow - what a detailed and honest review of our Playamar apartment, thank you for taking the time to write it. The day after you checked out, the master bedroom and balcony windows were replaced with sound proofed windows - I am sure that this should put an end to any disturbances from the bin men or bars across the road. We look forward to hearing back from you when you need accommodation again in or around the Benidorm area. "
I really wanted to give 5 stars but unfortunately due to the noise when sleeping in the front double bedroom I have to mark this apartment down, I did notice from a previous review about the noise but thought we would be OK in January!! Two nights we were kept awake from the bars opposite, one until 3am and the other at about 2am a fight broke out with tables falling over and glasses smashing. There was only three of us in the three bed roomed apartment but unfortunately the third bedroom was locked so we could not even use that on the nights of disturbance!! On the plus side the apartment was of a very high speck with a beautiful conservatory looking out over the bay, security at the apartments was very good making us feel at ease during our holiday. The personnel touch of coffee, tea, milk biscuits and a bottle of wine was very much appreciated. It could not of been easier for reserving, payment and refund of security deposit. I would have to think twice about booking again because of the sleepless nights which is a huge shame.
"Firstly, thank you very much for your feedback. It is so important to us as it is the only way we can address issues and improve on our services. We are so sorry to hear that the noise from the bar opposite continue to be an issue even in the winter. The law states that bars in Albir are to close at midnight on weekdays and by 1am at weekends - we were assured by the authorities after numerous complaints from the surrounding neighbours that the offending bar would be made to comply, which is obviously not the case. We are at a loss as to why this bar is allowed to continue to break the law. However we are hoping that with the installation of TRIPLE glazing in the master bedroom (being done at the beginning of March 2018) should solve this problem once and for all! So maybe this might put your mind at rest should you consider booking again with us - but I must point out that if you had contacted our local rep whilst in resort and explained the situation then, the third bedroom would have been made available to you. Again, thanks for taking the time in reviewing our Playamar II property."
Second stay this year at this excellent apartment in Albir run by an excellent team, Clive and Mike, very friendly and efficient. Deposit refunded same day as departure, no bother. Apartment is very spacious and homely. 3 large bedrooms, 2 walk - in showers ,could easily live there. Views to die for from balcony and lovely mountain views from rear passage. So central for everything, previous slight issue with outside noise greatly improved with extra glazing. You would be hard pressed to find a nicer apartment in this area,and at such a great price.Fab!
" So nice to get feedback especially from our satisfied customers. I see your second visit was better than your first! Fingers crossed we will be hearing back from you soon reference your third visit! Thanks for taking the time to write a review."
Albir Sea View Apartment
We have been coming to Albir for years and this is the best apartment we have stayed in. The size of the rooms, the layout and the views are great. The closed in balcony proved its self when we had a thunderstorm but still had the windows open. I cannot fault the handover or the help of Mike after we had left, thanks. I would have loved to given you 5 stars but the creaking bed-frame and the noise from the Bar Sunshine stopped me. We know that is out of your control and didn't stop us having a relaxing week. Hope to return next year, Keith and Eileen.
"Thanks Keith for your feedback - nice to hear that our Playamar apartment more than met your expectations! We will check out the issue with the noisy bed-frame - I am glad it has not put you off booking again. The bar across the road is becoming a real issue to all of the neighbours in the immediate vicinity - initially it was only an issue in the summer months - now they seem to continuing during the weekends of the winter months. The law states that they are only allow to make noise until midnight - but it seems even the police are turning a blind eye. We are looking to invest in TRIPLE glazing for the master bedroom which SHOULD solve the problem. We look forward to hearing from you again in the near future. "

Fantastic Apartment In The Heart Of Albir
Just returned back from Albir, the apartment was really lovely and had everything you could imagine for an amazing stay in Albir. You could not want any more in your accommodation, full sized dining table, two large sofas, six seats in the balcony overlooking the sea front, super equipped kitchen, three lovely bedrooms (one double two twins) utility room, washing machine, airer, dishwasher, all cooking facilities you could ever need. The apartment is situated right opposite the start of the promenade, full of lovely bars and restaurants. Useful to know the consum supermarket is less than a ten min walk to the right of the property and a large supermarket to the left just off the first roundabout. Past reviews have mentioned the double bed, we must agree a little to say the mattress is a little rigid - BUT if you lay the spare quilts on top we found it much more comfortable. The pool was lovely but for weaker swimmers just be aware there is no shallow end. The agents benidorm holiday lettings were super to deal with and even though we only returned yesterday our security deposit is in our bank today. Our electric cost just under 10.00 euros for the week but we were careful with using the air con and switching lights off etc. Lovely apartment and will definitely recommend to friends and family.
"Hi Sheran, so glad you had an enjoyable stay especially after the disastrous start with Monarch going bust! Thanks for taking the time to review our Playamar II property - it has been noted about the mattress and at will be address asap. Look forward to hearing from you again sometime in the near future. "
Perfect apartment- Perfect location
The owners were helpful from start to finish, everything , from arranging pick up to/from the airport to the speed of returning deposit at the end of the holiday. Apartment is high spec and very clean. The main bed for me was ok but I've yet to find a bed on holiday anywhere, that's a match for my own _ We caught a taxi one night into Aleta (7e) beautiful old town with nice restaurants and shops. Bus stop for Benidorm,if you come out of the apartment,turn right going up a slight incline the bus stop is about 8 minutes walk away opposite 'consum' supermarket. We went to the big market, which is a must, even just to see all the able bodied people on mobility scooters (very bizarre) You can get lots of bargains , clothes, leather goods etc We didn't find Albir that busy which was actually quite nice. Beach is amazing and sea - bliss! However take beach shoes or buy there as beach and walk into sea at parts stony. Only slight downside is noise from bars opposite apartment but I took ear plugs and it was fine
"Thanks Helen for taking the time to review our property, I must say you took full advantage of your time whilst on holiday, managing to fit a lot in! The bars opposite are a real pain in the summer months - there are several petitions being organized by all the neighboring residents to try and clamp down on the noise, but all seem to be unsuccessful :( Even the police seem to turn a blind eye to the issue. We are looking at getting a second set of double glazing fitted to the master bedroom - hoping this might sort the issue. Hopefully look forward to hearing from you again in the near future!"
We had a great time in Albir. and the Apartment was beautiful. Downside for us was the noise from the pub across the road, still ongoing at 3.20 am and mostly gone 2 in the mornings. Once the third bedroom was unlocked it was much quieter. Also may i add that it was a lovely swimming pool area, but it was too deep and only had a small 3 step, step ladder leading into it. My partner who is nearly 6ft tall had a struggle to get out once he was in. Their are no measurements to you don't know how deep it is, and no hand rail around the pool. If only they had put a longer ladder in the pool (this is not the fault of the owners of the apartment ) I have a medical problem so it was impossible for me to get in and cool off. As its a residential complex, and all the people we met were very friendly and always said hello. The garage was perfect, but having left the keys in the apartment as instructed, when we left the apartment and made our way down to the garage If somebody had come and locked the garage door we would have been in a bit of a muddle. The owners are all very nice and very helpful. Also they left us a lovely welcome package when we arrived, thank you for that. much appreciated.
"Thank you for your review and comments. We did not know about the noise until you said, so have now installed secondary double glazing for bedrooms 2 and 3, and ordered quadruple glazing for the master bedroom at the front. Also contacted the local police who say that the legal time for closing in summer is 1.30am, after which time they should be contacted. Ref the pool steps, three is quite normal in Spain so we can't do anything about that. Fortunately the sea is over the road, 3 minutes away, ideal to cool off! Ref the garage, when you are inside trying to get out, there is a push button to open the doors!!! We did show you and your husband when you arrived. It is under the light switch on the column alongside our parking. We leave a small complimentary welcome pack in all our properties, as we know that the first thing people want is a cuppa! So gad you liked the property and thank you for the positive feedback. I hope the noise problem will be sorted for your next visit."
3wows, apartment, location and views.
Perfect location,really in the heart of resort. Only downside to that is slightly more noise from road and bars opposite, but hey you can't have everything. Just having breakfast in morning on balcony made up for that. Balcony had sliding windows which were fab. Had a few windy days so could still sit out on balcony. Lounge had two recline sofa's, both really comfy and a lovely dining table. Tv had freeview so was ideal for evening if we stayed in. Had meals on balcony ,6comfy chairs and them views. Both bathrooms had walkin showers ,real luxury. Only negative was beds were not too our liking,too firm, but wife suffers with back problems, and it's a nightmare to find a bed suitable for her. So beds would be ok for majority of people. Could roll out of apartment onto beach,loads of bars and restaurants in stones throw away. Albir is the exact opposite to Benidorm and is well worth a visit.
"Firstly, thank you for taking the time to write a review of one of our apartments. Feedback from our guests is always welcome. You are spot on about the beds - it's so hard to cater for all tastes and we find the harder mattresses tend to suit the majority. Albir seems to be the up and coming resort for guests that prefer a more tranquil holiday, but is close enough if you want to go into Benidorm. Hopefully we'll hear from your again in the near future."
