Great apartment with fabulous views of La Herradura bay & the mountains
We stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of August and had a fantastic time with my husband and two children.
The apartment was very spacious, clean and very well equipped with everything you need during your stay.
The pool was bigger than we were expecting and was usually very quiet, in fact some times had it to ourselves. At the weekends the pool and apartments got a bit busier as Spanish owners arrived until Sunday evening , as did La Herradura as Granada is only 45 minutes away.
We hired a car and I would recommend that you need one as it is a very steep hill back up from the beach but this means there were fabulous views from the balcony. The apartment comes with its own underground parking space and there was also parking available outside on the road. It was just a couple of minutes drive to La Herradura beach and we went most days and were able to park cheaply and easily.
The surrounding beaches of Maro, Canuelo, Salobrena and Almunecar were all great to visit and easy to reach in the car.
The owner, Catherine, gave us clear directions and the Housekeeper met us on arrival at the apartments.
We would highly recommend both La Herradura and the apartment and hope to return in the future.
Hi Susanna, so glad to enjoyed your stay, La Herradura is a magical place for sure. You are very welcome back to enjoy our apartment again at any time! Best regards, Catherine.
Wonderful apartment which allowed us to be very comfortable for our 10 day stay July 18. Kids loved the pool and very easy to reach the local town (with a car). Would highly recommend.
So lovely to know you enjoyed it!
Perfect May Holiday
The apartment was perfect for my wife and I. Well located and very well equipped, we had everything we needed for a most enjoyable week. Weather was perfect and lots to see and do nearby, but a car is essential for getting around. Unfortunately, we were unable to connect with wifi in the apartment. Many thanks to Catherine for being most helpful and communicative.
Lovely apartment in a beautiful Area
A fabulous week away from it all in a lovely apartment in stunning La Herradura. The apartment has everything you could need, there's a gorgeous pool, and the beach with lots of fabulous restaurants a 2 minute drive away. The owner Catherine is extremely helpful and friendly, as is her Housekeeper Ebelia. A wonderful week away and somewhere we plan to return to
Spacious Modern Apartment
This is a modern and spacious apartment in La Herradura with two reasonably sized bedrooms, two bathrooms and an open plan kitchen/diner/lounge area. With a four year old we prefer holidaying in apartments rather than hotels and this place suited us great. In the evenings we were able to sit out on the large covered balcony which catches the sun from late afternoon and looks out towards the sea. There's a decent size flat screen TV in the lounge with British satellite channels plus a DVD player should you want to travel with some films in hand, will take a USB drive.
The kitchen is really well appointed with more cooking equipment than we've ever had in an apartment. There's also a separate utility area with a sink and washing machine - recommend packing light and bringing a couple of washing tablets with you.
Our son loved the large communal swimming pools, there's a smaller splash type pool for younger children and a larger one for bigger kids and adults. During our stay there were rarely more than six others at the pool at any one time despite the size of the complex.
The downside of the apartment is it's not exactly close to the main town so with a young child expect to drive if going to the beach or out for food. If you're happy to do the walk down the hillside there are a couple of decent restaurants that end of the sea front which are worth a visit. Also don't rely on the WiFi for connectivity, across three different devices we only stayed connected for twenty minutes at a time whilst on one side of the bed in the main bedroom and then it was a slow speed. There is great 4G strength though so bundle up and trust that instead.
La Herradura feels very much like a resort visited by the Spanish and we found very few people spoke English in shops or restaurants unlike some other parts of this coastline. It's worthwhile brushing up on your basic Spanish before coming out.... Don't be perturbed by the accommodation details being written in Spanish the owner is English and easy to communicate with we had emails, calls and texts all answered quickly.
Would we come back - certainly.
