They went to good lengths to make sure we had a nice and pleasant stay. Highly recommend this place for a nice, quiet stay. Great pool.

The primary selling point is a fantastic roof terrace for your sole use that really is as big as it looks in the photos, with a decent view down to the seafront. We used the main bedroom and one of the bunk beds in the smaller room and both were comfortable. All the other facilities like bathroom and kitchen were as you would expect. The swimming pool was a bit too cold for me but there were loungers there if you wanted to have a lazy day. The apartment is in a block at the top of a steep hill. My one reservation would be for anyone who has trouble with mobility, as they may wish to hire a car or use taxis. We used the public bus system with the BONO card to visit Santa Cruz and other attractions nearby but again a car would be useful if you want to strike further afield. I was worried that the apartment was close to the autopista but was pleasantly surprised to hear very little noise and felt no pollution. We did not find many restaurants close nearby. Instead we walked down and south towards Candelaria, via a pleasant seafront stroll, to find a good selection. There is a good size Mercadona supermarket quite close.
