                                A perfect villa in a perfect location, very well equipped and home from home. All rooms were a good size and very comfortable. Pool was fantastic as were the patios and garden with a hammock, nice game of boules too! Air conditioning a life saver. Highly recommended-Angel is very helpful and friendly. We will return.

                                Lovely apartment - very spacious and well equipped

                                Apartment is lovely, particularly in terms of living area inside and the terrace(s). Well equipped kitchen for eating in. Lots of thoughtful touches eg including beach towels etc. we spent a lot of time on the terrace reading and watching the birds.We snorkelled from the town beach when the sea wasn't too high. Liked small bar on the right as the road ends at beach in Las Negras and the Bouganvilla pizza and pasta place. Poor food at La Palma. Good swimming and lunch in Isleta. Botanical garden in Rodalquilar is very impressive. Bring swimming shoes and binoculars. Thank you very much Stefan and Thomas.

                                Perfect stay in Cabo de Gata

                                5 of 5
                                Everything is perfect here. Location is superb: 3 min drive to Las Negras, but in the quietness of the surroundings and with a beautiful sea-view. Owner is great: discrete but very helpful in providing info and amenities (umbrella anf chair for the beac, water and coffee upon arrival, snack for the first breakfast, etc). Apartment is terrific: brand new, fully equipped, super clean and with a big terrace with direct access to the pool. No complaints at all for this place. The Cabo de Gata park is worth the visit for dramatic scenary and great beachlife. Luisa can provide all details on best beaches to visit. Reccomended!
