The apartment was great, and just what we needed for our trip. The place was SPOTLESS when we arrived and maid service called several times during our stay with clean towels/bedding/washing-up liquid/shower gel. We used the pool at the hotel and the beach. Both were within a minute or 2 walk. There is a courtesy bus into Albuferia, which was great (it always seems better when it's free). Restaurants/bars are within 2 minute walk. I'd recommend Neto's for excellent food and service. The owner was helpful and happy to answer any queries/enquiries before we arrived. We'd happily stay her again. :-)
