Yes I too fell foul of Des and the rest of them. I bought 3 apartments in Limon Mar in Formentera through built by Palacios Mar.
Des disappeared and the office in Santiago did absolutely nothing to help me. Michelle made promises she never kept. I bought them to sell on but they all knew this wouldn't be possible. I ended up buying 2 of them, completed the purchases in Feb 2007. The offices in Liverpool somewhere never ever called me to ask if the purchase went well.
They are just a bunch of cowboys, who make their commission and then do nothing.
In august I moved furniture into one of them, and fitted lights etc to both of them. Later that month, it rained heavily and it identified leaking solariums. All the bathroom ceiling went black with mould. Eventually this spread over the whole apartment and the other one next door.
They have now fixed the problem and say they have redecorated one apartment. They now have to do the other one. IT HAS TAKEN THEM 5 MONTHS.
Palacios Mar's reputation for after sales service is very bad. I am not alone with my opinions.
I am sick of the whole experience over the last few years, with various companies and developers, even the British there take the mickey. You don't live there and you can't keep popping over to sort things out.
NEVER AGAIN. The whole place is full of con-artists.
