The apartment is ideal for access to the old town and a 10-15 minute walk down to the beach front. The apartment itself is very clean and well laid out with 2 good sized bedrooms with aircon. There is outside seating and a pool which was quiet as the complex is more a residential space than a holiday complex. We paid for the Wifi which was good. Coni the 'manager' stays nearby and was always available to answer any questions. The underground parking was a bonus as well. Recommended.

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.
