“Great apartment, lovely views”
Reviewed April 20, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Slyph in April 2015. The apartment was clean and well equipped.The view from the terrace was of the sea and mountains, it was lovely to sit and sunbathe. The pool was cooler than the sea, at this time of year, but we did use it daily!! We liked the location which was quiet and near the town of Gran Tarajal. The beach there was sandy and sheltered and we swam in the sea several times. We were impressed by the restaurants in Gran Tarajal, which were walking distance from the apartment. It was a good base to visit the island and the scenery is stunning and dramatic. We would recommend this apartment to others.

“excellent apartment”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My daughter and I (age 26 and 61) stayed here the first week of March for a bit of wintersun. All directions and information was spot on. The aparment was abolutely spotless. Good quality beds and bedlinen. Spacious bathroom with good working shower. Comfortable in all ways with everything you need.(some better reading lights both in bedrooms and by the sofa would be great) Wifi works well. Home from home. Huge terass with sun all day, beautiful views over sea, mountains and sky. Very quiet (dont be put off by the road/roundabout on the photo, there is very little traffic. it is a really peaceful location. The pool( not heated) and pool area is also maintained every morning and kept in pristine condition.
Gran Tarajal is a lovely quiet little town and surprisingly authentic with few tourists as no hotels. It is refreshingly void of fish and chips, pubs and tourist tat. Some very good restaurants along the seafront, all friendly and good value.
The little fishrestaurant by the fish market/marina is fantastic if you like and know fresh fish.
The walk from apartment to town/marina is approx 10-20 min..
Would recommend a car for your food shopping and also doing outing around the island.It's great to have a space in the garage.
The deposit was paid back promptly.
Would definately come back.

“Perfectly Peaceful”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Just back from 2 weeks staying at Casa Sylph in Gran Tarajal. Holiday plans changed a wee bit when my husband fell and broke his arm just three days before travelling to Fuerte, but Casa Sylph proved to be the perfect base for his rest and rehab. Lovely spacious,well equipped apartment with all the facilities you could wish for. Quiet, peaceful location with lovely sea view from the large balcony. Our two girls are big into athletics and fitness and were over the moon to have the use of the gym and 25 mtr pool almost exclusively to themselves. Gran Tarajal itself is a pretty quiet town with a number of beachside cafes and restaurants, we ate at a few of them and found them all to be good value. H|iperdino and Spar (Padilla) supermarkets were both well stocked and also good value. Would recommend car hire if you want to see a bit of the island, but Grand Tarajal is a great base to explore from. Great selection of DVD's in the apartment also if you decide to have a night or two staying in. All in all we had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday and would fully recommend Casa Sylph, Hopefully we will return again.

“Well recommended!”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

It's all been said before in other reviews. Gran Tarajal is a lovely Spanish town that has not yet been spoiled by mass touirsm. We have now found the place in Fuerteventura that we would like to return to on our next visit.

“ROOM WITH A VIEW”
Reviewed February 15, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

When we arrived we found the apartment had a wow factor as soon as we walked in as it was so spacious. Walking onto the enormous terrace we found ourselves overlooking the sea and a small rocky beach.The sun loungers allowed us,along with some hot sunny days to enjoy the quiet relaxation on the terrace. Gran Tarajel is a short walk from the apartment with plenty of restaurants and shops (SUPERMARKETS ARE CLOSED ON SUNDAY).
One of the many restaurants to mention overlooking the beach is Carnes Don Cangrejo the staff were so friendly and the steaks and paella were enjoyed a number of times during our three week stay.We would recomend car hire to ensure you enjoy the many places of interest situated further afield.
