Close to brilliant beach and promenade
About Steve Wing
I am a garden lighting designer living in Oxfordshire
Steve Wing purchased this Apartment in 1984
Why Steve Wing chose El Campello
The apartment has been our family holiday home for over 30 years. I have enjoyed countless fantastic beach holidays and have many lovely memories. Campello is a very friendly and safe place. The bars and shops are very good quality and with Benidorm and Alicante less than 30 minutes away it is ideally situated for a brilliant holiday.
What makes this Apartment unique
The terrace has always been the main feature of the apartment. In Britain we dream of sitting outside in the warm sunshine during the day and through the evening. The terrace is perfect for this. The area its situated is very buzzy with lots of cool bars and shops. There is a bar especially for young children just opposite and the Park also has a nice bar with excellent "Tapas" There is a bus stop right outside to Benidorm and Alicante. At the top of the road is a tram station that runs through the day and night into Benidorm and Alicante also. Turn left out of the apartment and the wonderful beach and exciting promenade are just 2 minutes walk away.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
The apartment is in a great location, a few minutes walk from the tram station one way or the beach and promenade the other way, close to lots of bars and restaurants, 3 supermarkets and shops that sell everything you could need. El Campello is a lovely resort and it's very easy to catch the tram or bus to visit other nearby places.
We arrived early but Elvira kindly let us leave our bags so we could go and explore and also told us all about the fiesta which was taking place during our stay.
The apartment is very well equipped (enough pots & pans to make your own meals if you want to), standard of cleaning is excellent and the owner sent us lots of useful information before our stay. Wi-fi reception is good and tv has English channels if you want them. The only thing we missed was air conditioning - there are ceiling fans in the lounge and bedrooms but the weather was very hot so a blast of cold air would have been welcome.
Overall it's a large comfortable, clean apartment in a great location and provides very good value for the price you pay.
very well equipped everything you need for your holiday great location very clean amazing value loved el Campelo will be back
I’m delighted you had a great time and thank you for booking the apartment
Ideal position, close to shops, tram, and seafront. Well equipped but looking a little dated and tired. UK TV and WiFi were appreciated.
Well equipped apartment in good location
Spacious apartment with wonderful terrace that gets the sun from 1pm to 7pm (we were there in May). Has everything you need and is very conveniently located for public transport, supermarkets, restaurants and the beach. We had a very enjoyable stay and would hope to return.
Super apartment. Excellent location, and includes everything you should realistically need.
OK, so the stay was in the middle of December. However, being El Campello this does not really reflect on the UK weather, so we arrived on a dry although cooler day. We were met at the apartment with the keys, shown around, and left to enjoy our stay. First glance was that this was a typical Spanish apartment - tiled floors, basic bedrooms, basic amenities, etc. but when we looked a little further we found a very nice bathroom (and loved the shower!), a kitchen with washing machine, dishwasher, English kettle, but also loads of add ons - laundry basket, airer, shopping trolley (if you feel you need it) and of course the balcony. We did not use this, but is a fabulous additional space. OK, so there are a couple of negative points - there is free street parking, but very limited, or rather there's a heavy demand for spaces. So you may need to park a little further away (like 2 minutes walk, not a major hardship). If you don't have a car, the tram station is an easy three minute walk away, with regular services to Alicante and Benidorm. The other negative was one of the beds, which my son found lacked the comfort level he had anticipated (but I didn't try that bed, so cannot comment myself). However, the other bed was totally fine. For a winter stay, heaters are available (and the Spanish building construction means they they loose heat more readily than at home, so we did use the heaters!). Overall, would I return to Steve's apartment - YES! Thanks Steve.
Thank you so much for your very kind review.
I’m delighted you both were happy.
Our second stay very good.
Very nice central apartment close to beach and tram station. Easy to get to from airport. Airport bus to Alicante stop Lucerus. Then tram to El Campello apartment just down street.
The beach in El Campello is fantastic with lots of restaurants and Bars to choose from for lunch. The beach in nearby San Juan is one of the longest in Europe. Very nice but not the choice of bars and restaurants.
Benidorm is only 30 minutes away with both Aqualand water Park and Terra Mitica Theme Park fantastic days out.
Mundomar Sea life and and Dolphin show is also a popular attraction in Benidorm.
The old town of Benidorm has wonderful shops and Tapas bars. And is only just off the beach.
Alicante is a lovely vibrant city to visit. Again it is less than 30 minutes away. The harbour and promenade are stunning. Atmospheric narrow streets and alleyways take you up from the harbour into the town itself where the shopping is massively varied and appealing. Lots of little bars to have lunch too.
Both Benidorm and Alicante can be reached via the tram station at the top of the road.
