Expert review of Apartamentos Fariones

Very affordable, well-equipped apartments in central location.

I was pleased to see that the youngest, and most affordable, sibling in the local Fariones stable has seen a recent refurbishment. Apartments are tasteful with everything you might need, including a swimming pool, even though they are also close to the beach.

Location: 

On a hill on a main road in the resort, about a ten-minute walk from the beach.

Bedrooms: 

All the accommodation comes in the form of very attractive apartments, with kitchen, dining area and sofa. Twelve apartments have two bedrooms. Built in 1997, the simple, whitewashed complex has five buildings on three floors; try to get an apartment on the upper floor as these have good sea views and tend to get a bit of a breeze. Apartments have terraces or balconies with classy, white wrought iron furniture and striking Moorish tiles in the bathroom and kitchen. The complimentary bottle of local wine is a lovely touch.

Public areas: 

Tall mature palms dot the landscaping around the pool. 

Eating and drinking: 

When I was there, most guests seemed to be visiting on a bed and breakfast basis. It is possible to have dinner in the compact, rustic restaurant. There is also a simple bar and snack bar by the pool.

Leisure facilities: 

The pool is on the small side, with limited space and sun loungers, hence a daily morning scrum many mornings in peak season. Guests seemed to like the (admittedly mellow) music played through loud speakers around the pool, but I found it annoying and intrusive. An entertainment team is in full force throughout the day and evening for children and adults, and not for just guests from this apartment but from the two Fariones hotels nearby.

Service: 

I've found that on the whole most people who work here are helpful.

Who stays there: 

Mostly Europeans, and lots of repeat guests, a fair number of whom stay for several weeks.

Price advice: 

No designated parking for the hotel – just public parking - and it can be hard to find a space in peak season, so you may find yourself having to pay for parking.

Pros: 
Superb location
Immaculate
Excellent value
Cons: 
Small pool area
No parking
No air conditioning
