Default Have Villa Concha Apartments had a refurb

Hi,

I'm hoping that someone can help. We are planning our second trip to PP this year and are considering Villa Concha or Daina Apts. On the Villa Concha site it looks as if the rooms have been tarted up a bit and I wondered whether anyone knew whether this was the case.

Many thanks
Lynn

Thank you. Yes I was aware that Daina has been refurbed and the reviews coming in look good. It was our first choice but not sure the best pool for our soon to be four year old, although I know there is the beach on the door step.

The photos of the rooms on the Villa Concha website look identical to what our room was like when we stayed at the VC in June 2010. So they definitely haven't been refurbed since then!

Thank you so much Simon. That answers my question then. Makes the decision all the more difficult then...do we pay a bit more and have the refurbished room at Daina Apt's but maybe the pool not being the best for our son or do we go for Villa Concha and risk not being happy with the standard of the rooms......

Was staying in a privately owned apartment last week in the next street to Villa Concha. It was completely shut up, and notices said it was opening in May. There was a tremendous amount of building work going on outside - no evidence of a pool at all - just mounds of earth and large diggers! They will have to work quickly if it is going to be completed by May. The apartments are advertised as being available on April 30th on the Thomas Cook site.

I have some friends staying at villa concha 7th to 10th may so I hope they finish building in time. They have however only paid £63 for the room for the 3 nights. Between 2 of them it's for nothing !!!

The pool at the Daina is also being renovated at the moment . Lets hope they are both ready for May.

The Daina pool was fully tiled and filled with water when I left PP yesterday.

It looked like new framework had been erected for the bar and the wicker sofa's were being put back into position so it should be open any time now I'd say.

Indeed Sparky. They tiled and filled it damned quick !!!

I'm sure it's child friendly the pool? I think there's a paddling pool bit as you go in isn't there? I may be wrong. It's not been altered atall, just smartened up. Looks a lot less like a municipal pool now with those nice mosaic tiles.

It is a great place to sit for a "sundowner" !!!

Hic, hic...............

So wish I could decide which to book. I think we would prefer the modern style of the Daina. Has anyone seen them inside since they have been refurbed? We would have to book a studio for the three of us.

I live just along from Villa Concha and they are revamping the whole pool area although not sure why. They only started work about 2 weeks ago which is rather strange. The apartments have not been refurbished however as you know the Daina apartments have and to an excellent standard. The Villa concha has lovely gardens and pool area and is in quieter area compared to the Daina Apartments. It goes down to location I think. At the end of the day you are unlikely to spend much time in the actual apartment so
Do you want to be in the very centre of the resort? Do you love the sea front position of the excellent Daina pool or would you be happier in the family friendly quieter location of Villa Concha. Its a great place to stay as so quiet at night, 5 mins walk to beach, 10mins walk to the centre of town......Daina has fab sea views from the pool and both complexes have entertainment a couple of nights a week.
