Our family of five stayed for three weeks in August 2016.We have three children aged from eleven to sixteen, so we have the full spectrum of interests. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed themselves so much so that as soon as we got back we booked for August 2017 !!!!!!! It is a gated complex ideal for those with small children. The balcony overlooks the pool and garden so the kids are never out of sight and there is an awesome roof terrace for BBQ'S. There is a family feel to the complex with a few residents having young children in addition to those visiting for a holiday. The "settled" residents are really welcoming and pointed us in the direction of the best bars and restaurants. This is the first holiday that we have been on where we all wanted to return to the same location. Eleven out of ten rating !!!!!!
i have been going to Gordon and Danny's apartment with my husband and young daughter the past few years. We have been returning as this is a brilliant all rounder place to go whether with a family or not. Location/weather/apartment are fantastic and the Local residents are warm and friendly. There is no need for a car as there are buses to the local beaches and market places, but if wanting to travel further for sight seeing then a car is required. Have to say the best thing about the apartment is the very large roof terrace which not only has the space for sun loungers but also barbeque and table/chairs for eating in.
Everything is accessible including the airport which is only 25/30 mins away from the apartment. Local residents even available for airport pickups if required.
Already booked for next year..
This was our 4th visit to this apartment and each time the apartment just gets better and better. It's always clean and very comfortable and a real home from home. Everything you could possibly need on holiday has been catered for. The sun terrace is a real plus to this apartment with plenty of sun loungers and even a wine cooler in the store cupboard.
It's great to have the balcony as well to eat meals, drink copious amounts of wine or just chill on a warm night.
The pool is kept really clean and the local residents are all friendly and a source of information on the local area.
The apartment is in walking distance of many restaurants and pubs and a well stocked supermarket. Although we always hire a car there is a very good local bus service.
The markets are worth a visit to wander round and the Zenia Boulevard is a must for all shoppers. the beaches are beautiful and there is a lovely coastal walk which we have done on several occasions. All of which can be found in the information folder provided by the owners.
We love this apartment for it's ideal location, friendly locals and for a stress free couple of weeks. The owners, Danny and Lizzie and Karen and Gordon are always contactable and are only too happy to offer help and advice if needed. Thank you all for a great holiday x x x
We are just home after a fantastic 12 nights at Colinas del Presidente. It was recommended to us by our daughter who had visited the apartment earlier in the year. It was everything we had hoped for and more.
The beautiful apartment was so clean comfortable. Every detail had been considered to ensure a great stay. The kitchen is well stocked with every item you could possibly need and having a washing machine was an absolute treat on holiday.
The roof terrace was amazing and the views fantastic! The lovely pool is clean and well managed and gave good opportunity to meet with some of the residents who take great pride in this tranquil settlement.
The owners have taken the time to make an information folder which was filled with details on the surrounding area , restaurants , maps, bus routes, address cards and more.... we referred to this daily it is a fantastic resource!
The location is ideal for families and couples alike. With beautiful beaches, multiple shopping areas, pubs and eateries (villa martin plaza and Zenia Boulevard to name but a few) and there is a large supermarket nearby (within walking distance).
We hired a car on arrival which I would recommend, but is definitely not essential (we returned ours with half a tank of petrol as there was so much available to us by foot). If you prefer not to drive abroad Airport transfers seem easy to arrange and there is a good local bus service which we utilised.
All in all we have had a fantastic holiday.
Thank you very much.

Just returned after our 2nd visit/year from our girlie holiday. Fantastic apartment with everything you need. Great new walk in shower, new extended glass table/balcony furniture to eat breakfast on. Satellite TV with wifi now available which for us girlies is a must. Superb roof terrace with sun on it all day, plenty of sun loungers & patio table & chairs to allow us to eat al fresco with wine cooler up stairs to enable you to spend more time in the sun.
Pool and grass area beautiful and clean, permanent residents of the complex lovely & friendly especially Dave, Norman & wives.
Stone Grill our favourite at the La Fuentes Plaze about a 15 min walk away, Tiger Feet a must visit ladies for shoes and bags.
Over all I would definitely recommend this clean all you can need apartment.
Another great week at the much improved apartment, Shower makes a huge difference. Brought some plants for the Sun terrace so if your visiting please don't forget to water. There's new table and chairs on the balcony and a kettle that doesn't leak. Satellite TV and internet now up and running(well done Barney and Betty) so things are in good order for our guests over the next few months.
Weather was great and the 2 girls were in the pool (first in 2014 apparently).
New bar/restaurant called Summers opened just down from the vault, good cheap meals with excellent service worth a visit. All the old favourite's have now reopened after the winter break.
Brenda and I spent two wonderful weeks at the apartment, weather was glorious the whole time with average temp 28 degrees during the day. Ate out several times at different venues such as, Royal Oak, Prato Pekin, Ashoka, Quesada, all reasonably priced and very good quality food. Spent a day in Torrivieja (not sure on spelling) beautiful sea front and causeway with lovely shops and market stalls. Loved sitting on the balcony watching the world go by and struggling with Suduko. Special mention must go to the permanent residents of the complex, they made Brenda and I feel welcome and at home and were extremely helpful with advice on places to visit, Many Thanks and look forward to a return visit soon.
Had another great week, the weather didn't let us down, very hot and sunny throughout. Visited some restaurants-a must is the Argentinian steak house at the La Zenia Boulevard, fantastic value with great service. Barney and Betty joined us after a couple of days and as always they where great company. Had three games of golf with Barney, I won two and lost one (which made up for the City vs. United result) Apartment sun terrace has just been re-painted and is looking great. Me and Barney should be congratulated, we have been awarded the "standing around the markets" medal for patience above and beyond the call of duty.(Saturday market at La Zenia)(Ladies have a heart and leave your man at a nearby man Creche) in Spain this is a Golf course or Pub.
Holiday 2.8.13 to 14.8.13
First visit to the Colinas Del Presidente and loved every minute. Exceptionally hot weather ave 34 degrees although Mark thoroughly enjoyed the heat. Roof terrace is superb and was used every day from early morning to late at night. Apartment has everything you could wish for in a home from home. Clean and tidy and well looked after. Pool very clean and tidy and all the neighbours were very friendly & offered lots of advice re place to go to eat & drink. Big thanks to Dave for ferrying us around. Boulevarde shopping centre is a must for any female visitor, even has a Primark. La Zenia beach is about a 15 minute drive and well worth a visit. The Nook is a nice bar with Sky tv & air con. The Asian Chinese & indian restaurants are all within walking distance.
Betty and I visited the apartment from 9th to 17th of July and as usual had a fabulous time, relaxing, sunbathing, drinking, eating in and out, with a couple of games of golf (Betty won one and I won the other).Of course Betty had to drag me round the new La Zenia Boulevard kicking and screaming but finished off with a lovely meal in the Argentinian Buffet Restaurant.
Back in September - cannot wait!!!!!
24 June - 6 July 2013

Had a great time.The weather was OK for the time of year, warm and sunny. Men enjoyed the Golf and the Ladies shopping at La Zenia Boulevard. Had plenty of meals out, all where good,but would highly recommend the Stone Grill and a visit to the Cake shop next door both located in La Fuente Plaza. Barney and Betty where excellent company. Looking forward to our next visit.
