Another fantastic stay in El Apartamento
This was yet another great stay at Costa Tropical Oasis.The gardens evolve every time we visit and we love the ability to find a sunny or sheltered spot depending on the weather.
El Apartamento has everything we require from decent WiFi, UK TV, comfy bed, washing machine & dishwasher to name a few of the facilities.
Patrick, as ever, is a great host being there when needed but not intrusive.
The fairly recent completion of the A7 motorway along the south coast (and up past Almeria) has made access to the many towns & villages so much easier with the motorway access only 5 minutes from the property.
We have already booked our trip for next year and can't wait to return.
Again many thanks for taking the time to submit your lovely review. Believe 3 Winter breaks now. Delighted that you love the comfortable warm accommodation and spending time relaxing in the gardens. Looking forward to welcoming you back in December
We had a truly relaxing break here. The apartment was a home away from home, it had everything we needed, and we felt so welcome and free to do exactly as we wished. I was blown away by my surroundings, as the garden was like a secret oasis of lush tropical plants, which I spent many lovely hours in, lolling by the pool. Our host was so helpful and friendly, and we fell in love with the place, and the dogs. I feel so refreshed. We will definitely be back as soon as we have the time. Thank you so much.😊
Delighted that you appreciated the ethos of this special place; loving the accommodation, sub-tropical gardens, pool & especially the two waggy dogs! Looking forward to welcoming you both back soon for another lazy break from city life...
Wonderful setting, amazing gardens
Yet another wonderful stay in this unique setting. El Apartmento had everything we needed from a superbly comfortable king size bed to a dishwasher.
The gardens are an absolute delight with shady spots for sunny days and sheltered areas for the breezy days.
Motril is a lovely Spanish town and the A7 motorway (only 2 minutes away) makes the whole of the south coast from Almeria to Malaga easily accessible in around an hour.
Patrick is the perfect host being available for any advice when needed but almost invisible at other times giving you the feeling that the property is all yours to enjoy and relax in.
It is a truly unique setting with the beautiful gardens and I doubt you would find anything to beat it.
We have already booked our return trip.
Many thanks for taking to trouble to submit your lovely Review. Delighted that you enjoyed another 6 week Winter break in the sun and looking forward to welcoming you both back on New Years Eve for another six weeks. January time in my sub-tropical gardens is definitely more enjoyable than enduring another freezing UK, should be a better crop of avocados next winter too!
A sheer delight as always
We have spent 3 weeks in both the Casa and El Apartamento over the last couple of years. We liked both for different reasons. The Casa for being on different levels and quirky and El Apartamento for being on the level and with a better position for viewing it's vista's
Being sun worshipers we where catered for rather well, spent most of our time in and around the pool. if at any time one was feeling in need of some shade their are numerous places to sit in the garden under the tree canopy.
Many thanks Gerry for taking the trouble to post your Excelent review. So pleased that you and Liz enjoyed your 3 sunny weeks relaxing by the swimming pool. Looking forward to welcoming you back for a third visit next year....
Beautiful apartement,with lots of chill out spaces.
lovely furnishings,home from home.
Patrick a great host with loads of local knowledge,he so kindly took us to some great tapas bars in Motril,only 10 minute drive away,a lovely town with great beach.there was also a brilliant bus service which we used to go to Granada,only 50 mins away.A must see if your in this area.
Thankyou Patrick for your kindness and hospitality
I will definately be back
Many thanks for posting your excellent 5* review.
Delighted that you relaxed and enjoyed your time here.
Taking advantage of the new modern bus station just minutes away in Motril. Comfortable coaches go all over Andalucia from there and even a connection to Puntalón village 5 times a day. However, unless you intend to just chill in the gardens here, a hire car is highly recommended for more flexibility and late nights our...
A hidden paradise
My wife and myself along with our eight month old Shih Tzu spent very enjoyable and tranquil long weekend at the property. The apartment was very well equipped and exactly as described it was typically Spanish, for us it felt like home from home.
The gardens are absolutely wonderful far better than we imagined with plants from various parts of the world also three very friendly dogs can sometimes be found, the spaniel "Hugo" quite often can be seen cooling off in one of the many water features or fountains.
There is a reasonable size pool at the far end of the gardens (we tried it once but too cold for us, living in Spain for the past seven years we are acclimatised and do not swim this early in the year, Brrr!). the pool terrace has a nice shaded area to chill out, Also in this area is a summer kitchen with barbacoa y gas ring, paella pan if you are feeling really adventurous.
Patrick the owner of the property besides being a very passionate gardener is a very approachable and friendly person without encroaching on your privacy.
Although the property is situated amongst the "plastic greenhouses" do not let this deter you from visiting this tranquil casa. The costas Salobreña, Almúneca are only a short drive away, or Granada and Alhambra no more than forty minute drive.
I would recommend this property whether you want to use it as a base for sight seeing or visiting the many beaches along the Costa Tropical (which hasn't been ruined by mass tourism) or just chill on your roof or garden terrace within the wonderful gardens that Patrick has created surrounding the Casa Nuevo.
Highly recommendable and we will definately be returning to this hidden paradise.
Many thanks for taking the time to submit your excellent review. So pleased that you enjoyed your weekend break here and connected with the special gardens, hope the cuttings take. Looking forward to welcoming you back for a longer stay in July.
Ideal holiday destination for those travellers seeking a slower pace of life for a week or more in authentic Andalucia.
To help maintain the sense of calm, privacy and relaxation No infants or children under the age of 16 years permitted to stay.
MOTRIL is found on the lush coastal plain 70kms South from Granada, midway between Malaga and Almeria .
Area known for the market garden growing greenhouses and terraced hillsides, producing all manner of Sub-tropical fruits & vegetables - agriculture is as important as tourism to the local economy.
Motril itself is packed with many restaurants, bars (some nightclubs), as well as plenty of shops and places of historical interest.
The area probably appeals more to the independent traveller, looking to escape the many developments and 'British ghettos' found nearby on the Costa del Sol!
This area still remains Spanish - ideal touring base for Southern Andalucia or for bargain property searches!
Excellent Winter climate and interesting holiday destination - possible to ski one day, beach the next!
Perfect for couples or working trips - Wi-Fi network.
Other Activities: painting, gardening, photography, bird watching, shopping.
