Playa Bella Apartments

These apartments have real family appeal, with kids' pools and entertainment around the clock. Apartments come king-sized and the two restaurants offer up please-all fare. Plus, its beachfront spot means San Antonio's sands are just moments away.

This place is right on Punta Xinxo Beach, just along from San Antonio proper. And its huge terrace virtually melts into the beach. Cross the walkway and you’re on the sands in seconds.

As to the complex itself, it’s made up of four-storey blocks grouped around the terrace. Sunbeds are here in force and the main, cloverleaf-shaped pool is pretty, with palm trees rising up from its centre. One of the pool’s ‘leaves’ is reserved for toddlers. The highlight, though, is the neighbouring splash pool. Complete with a novelty shark, shipwreck, showers and chutes, it’s the equivalent of a miniature aqua park.

Apartments are spacious and light. Most have undergone a recent refurbishment, too. Fresh magnolia walls have been teamed with blue-and-yellow furnishings. Smart kitchenettes and balconies or terraces finish things off. In terms of size, you can choose between studios and one, two or three-bedroom apartments, some of which offer bay views.

Elsewhere, you’ve got all the essentials on tap. There are two bright and breezy restaurants serving international dishes, plus a friendly bar on the beachfront. Add games and shows in the evening and you’ve got entertainment covered.

What’s more, getting to San Antonio is easy. Buses run into town from nearby or you can walk there – it’ll take around 45 minutes. Or there’s always the more scenic option of water taxis, which cruise to the centre or other nearby beaches. And if you don’t fancy going into town, there are plenty of restaurants and bars just outside the complex.

Keith H,

amazing place - let down by food

We went here as a family, a 10 year old and a 14 year old, and it was one of the best we've ever been on! The pool was decently sized and is practically on the beach, which was lovely. We had to get up extremely early to get a sun bed as once they're gone, they're gone, and they go very fast. This would be a down side for many people but for us with a 10 year old wanting to get up as quickly as possible it was not a problem. There was only 1 restaurant we went to that had decent food (which I have forgotten the name of) but the rest of what we went to was not very good at all, especially the one on site, however loved by the 10 year old. Breakfast on the other hand was nice! Entertainment was amazing. Chip made an effort with all of the kids and made an effort to learn names, and came round to talk to everyone individually round the pool which was lovely-kids loved him. We didn't really go anywhere, apart from across to San Antonio as there's nothing much to do of what we knew of, but that didn't matter as we preferred to stay round the pool all day, the kids made lots of friends and it looked like they were having a lot of fun. Rooms were spacious, clean, and good TV which we watched on a morning and while we were getting ready on a night. It would be great to return again, the only thing stopping us would be the lack of restaurants around that we all liked, other than that I wouldn't hesitate.More

emma5470,

Perfect for a family holiday

Playa Bella apartments are a very clean & really well run complex we stayed August 2014 for 2 weeks in a superior studio apartment & we can't fault it in any way. All the staff are very friendly & there's everything for all ages plus it's right on the beach. We have booked again for this August & can't wait 󾓫🍺👍🌞🌞More
