Apartment B: A really well appointed and spacious apartment. The owners had thought of everything, even the cool-box for the beach! Loved the wi-fi and the internet tv access, a welcome bonus. Well maintained pool and grounds. We are regular visitors to Gale' and the Gale' Mar apartments are in a superb location, convenient for two beaches, supermarket and restaurants. The new Chinese restaurant that opened in August is a must!
