As you can see from the reviews Brits are a minority in this resort - you will not find any pubs called the Dog and Duck but you will find some wonderful cafes and patisseries. The resort is very friendly and relaxed. Be aware that clothing is optional on the beautiful sandy beaches south of the resort - this is predominently naturist country. If you go look out for the collared doves and chipmonks (yes - chipmonks!) along the cliffs We did not hire a car which was a mistake - transfers were relatively pricey (compared with Mallorca) and the buses were unable to cope on market days. There is plenty of parking. Luckily the resort is compact and has a good range of facilities which is all we needed for a short break.
The bungalows and grounds are very good indeed and are situated about 200 metres from the beach and near local shops. The kitchen facilities are basic but adequate for the sort of cooking needed in a hot climate.The furnishing is comfortable. The TV does not receive English speaking channels - but seeing a couple of live La Liga matches was a real bonus. Each bungalow in the part where we stayed had a shaded terrace and a roof terrace for sun lovers - table, chairs and recliners provided. The grounds are mature and well kept with lots of flowering shrubs and palms. There are two pools both of which are well appointed - the larger one has a bar/cafe. The staff are very helpful and polite. The receptionist spoke perfect English and could not do more to make us welcome - I regret I did not ask her name.
