“Nice apartment. Car (or regular buses) recommended in order to get the most out of surrounding area and best beaches”
Reviewed 7 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The apartment is nice and spacious, and the gated community offers 3 pools.
When we arrived we found that the doors to the balcony didn't lock, however after reporting it was fixed later that day. A washing machine is included but please check the drainage pipe before use! - we came back to a flooded kitchen because the pipe was disconnected (for some unknown reason...?). I fixed it myself (after some mopping up), and also fixed the flushing on a couple of temperamental toilets, and a shower in which the pipe kept becoming disconnected by the water pressure (not the most ideal holiday activities!)
The surrounding area is a little bit treacherous if (like us) you have a pushchair, and anyone requiring a walking stick. My mother found it particularly hard work. The nearest beach (down a hill, then over a flyover) is a bit small and grotty, however there are two nice beaches in either direction across the coastline (8mins walk to bus stop, then 8mins bus ride) - 'La Cala' being the most vibrant. There is very little entertainment within walking distance, we found ourselves going back to the same restaurant a lot as it was the only place that offered any live music, and some excellent flamenco dancing on Monday evenings.
We gradually discovered more to do throughout our stay as we explored further, but expect to spend at least €20 a night getting back and forth in taxis if you don't have a car (or allow time for buses, but be prepared for grumpy drivers!).
Restaurant prices can vary, on average €12-17 for a main course (€22+ for steak), however there is a supermarket within walking distance and the apartment does offer good self-catering facilities.
If you like to have a drink in the evenings we were getting charged about €15 for two shorts (with mixer) and one soft drink, beer is around €4. We had to watch our budget a little on this holiday compared to other places in which we were able to be more lavish, however I expect this has a lot to do with the current value of pound sterling.
You would do well to walk to the beach in 6mins, and in all honesty it isn't a beach that you would want to spend much time at.
My review may seem over critical, possibly because of the apartment mishaps that you probably wouldn't have to endure, and also due to the pushchair and walking stick etc. If you don't have to worry about these things, and are hiring a car, there are lots of other resorts along the main coastal road that are worth exploring. It just depends on what sort of holiday you are looking for.

“Perfect apartment in perfect place.”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Everything you could wish for is available in this apartment. Top score! There is a large verandah which remains shaded until the afternoon. This and the position of the apartment help to keep it cool. There is little view but it is great for people watching.
The apartment is in a lovely complex with beautiful gardens and three immaculate swimming pools. It is very secure, gated and with lockable gates serving every two apartments.
There are a variety of restaurants within a 10-minute walk, all nationalities and all prices so no-one could be disappointed, There is also a supermarket nearby.
A fabulous place to stay, which we will heartily recommend to friends and family.

“All the basic ingredients for a great family getaway”
Reviewed 21 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Immaculately clean apartment with well-equipped kitchen. Complex with well-maintained gardens and 3 pools, none of which are huge but neither were they busy - we had pool to ourselves a lot of our stay! Good location, quiet area with supermarket, cafeteria, pharmacy and ATM just across the road. Minor point, could do with better pillows -
didnt stop us from getting a good nights sleep after a full day at the pools though! Thank you Dani for a lovely stay.
