We've stayed her on and off over the years (since 2006) and always enjoyed it. It's great for families with children, but it's fine for adults too! We used the kiddies club years ago, and our son reckons it was the best one he'd been to! It still does many of the same activities but the kids still seem to enjoy it. There are lots of small children about, but we have always found that they are properly supervised by their parents. However, if you find small children crying and generally behaving like small children irritating, this is definitely not the place to stay! There is also a programme for adults with Aerobics, Pilates Aquafit etc. I had never taken part before, but I did this year and the activities were a bit of fun and a good chance to practice my (dreadful) Spanish! The complex is well laid out, and although there are a lot of apartments it doesn't feel crowded. There is a large pool and a kiddies pool in the centre of the complex. People respect rules about not reserving sun beds. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the sea (The Atlantic, therefore plenty of waves, but very invigorating!). Access is via a walkway across the dunes, either through the front or back of the complex. The beach is sandy and well maintained. It is also a short walk to a number of restaurants. As others have said, not much English is spoken in the area, but the staff at reception etc speak English and are very helpful. They will phone to make reservations or bookings for you. The housekeeping staff are also very helpful and professional. The apartments are basic but comfortable. The wifi is expensive and only available in a hotspot centred in reception, and is very slow! There is a small shop on site and a number of other small shops within walking distance. If you have a car there is a Supersol, Lidl and Mercadona nearby. You would need a car if you want to explore the surrounding area ( definitely worth doing).
