There was plenty of space for us as a family of four (would fit two more people but the children loved not having to share a bedroom). It was close enough to walk to the beach and shops to enjoy during the day. And just a short walk up to the plaza with a great selection of restaurants to choose from in the evening - and more lovely shops too. We also enjoyed a trip to Guadalest in the mountains in our hire car where we spent the day exploring, visiting the castle, shopping and another lovely meal. The owners of this property are very helpful with good, prompt communication. We would stay here again and would recommend to others.
