Excellent quality accomodation. For anyone contemplating a break here the apartments are well equipped with a full kitchen including oven, microwave, large fridge/freezer, and a washing machine (but no kettle or toaster). They are spacious and spotlessly clean, and are well situated for a fair selection of restaurants and bars in easy walking distance.
However there are a few issues which although if known before do not create too many problems could and should be noted. The keys have to be collected from another location which will depend on your arrival times, communication was poor in our case. The apts do not have cleaning during your stay, a change of linen is provided however. You will have to be familiar with Spanish electricity as the power may still be turned off when you first arrive, and there are no instruction provided to assist you. Last but not least, and only something we discovered after we arrived, the swimming pool is only open from mid June to mid September, sadly out of those periods it was just left full attracting any rubbish and algeae, not very pretty and a major disappointment to us. For those requiring a swim the only option is the sea, both the Manga Mar (very shallow) and the Med are thankfully on the doorstep.
All in all, we actually enjoyed our stay here, the location is good, but not for anyone who dreams of relaxing by the pool out of the peak season hence the three star rating. If rated for the apartment alone we would give it four stars.
