Playa Bella Apartments

These apartments have real family appeal, with kids' pools and entertainment around the clock. Apartments come king-sized and the 2 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.

Stayed here September 2014. Great apartment, very clean and nicely decorated. Had everything we needed. Very nice balcony view of San Antonio bay. Friendly and welcoming staff. There was a nice bar/restaurant area with good menu. Entertainment each night. Also great location for local bars and restaurants. There is a shop very close by for day to day goods. Would recommend for both couples and family's!More

discusting room for a family of 4

We had 2 weeks at the playa Bella & Chip is amazing with the kids. The massive down side was the apartment room 516! Not suitable for a family of 4 at all! Dirty the maids came in a couple of times only ever left us 3 clean towels for the 4 of us, if the second bed was out in the front room the floor wasn't swept & if the bed was put away only changed 3 beds! Which to our opinion the apartment was only meant for 3, the toilet was in the bedroom which was not at all suitable with a 9 & 8 year old so did not have a full nights sleep in the whole 2 weeks of our stay! We did complain and was offered a superior at 167 euros extra! Which we did not understand why we should pay more for to get extra room! Surely the hotel sees the booking of 4 people on the computer & a room fit for 4 should be given or are we being naive! More

Filthy

Never come across anything as filthy in all my holidays abroad, dog poo outside our what should have been a apartment turned into a studio the stench when we opened the door was like a sess pit everything was filthy,rusty; or broken,our complaint to the English receptionist was brushed aside and the rudeness beggars believe,our rep too brushed us aside,a complaint has now gone in and it cost us a extra £160 each to upgrade to a different hotel, so please do not book the Playa Bella Apartments, our pictures we took say it allMore
