Came across the property on booking.com .The reviews we read were incrediblly good, so we decided to book 2 nights en-route prior to catching our ferry back to the UK next week.. It wasn't the easiest place to find, however, the owners son (who spoke excellent english) was very helpful and guided us in over the phone. We had booked a 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the sea and that's exactly what we got. The description was as described and the view over the nearby bay is fantastic; large rollers, thumping surf and an expanse of soft sand.
The apartment is in new condition, with top quality fittings, along with all modern facilties. Restauarants are within waliking distance and there are some lovely walks nearby on the cliffs and to the quaint harbour. We stayed in room 4 which has a balclny of approx 30 feet x 30 feet (Yes, those dimensions are correct!). From where one can look down at the sea which is approc 200 yards from the property. We have 2 sun loungers, 2 chairs and a table. There are 4 pation doors leading to the balcony, which gives you some idea to the roominess of the complex.
The staff are excellent and very helpful - fully focused on providing their guests with an excellent service. Regrettably my Spanish is very limited and as such, we conversed with the receptionist, by means of the Google translater !
There is free wi-fi throughout the property and the signal is very good.
There is a secure, free underground parking at the property and my car sits safely tucked away as we electronically speak.
We're enjoying ourselves so much that we have just extended our stay to 4 nights, before having to leave on monday to set off on a 4 hr car journey to Bilbao.
If you yearn for accomodation overlooking the sea, whilst listening to the crashing waves, appreciate good quality modern accomodation, like the shops/restaurants to be nearby and like nearby cliff walks - look no further; this is where to stay.
