Close to supermarkets, close to Paloma Park and many restaurants. A perfect getaway, would love to stay again. Many thanks for making us feel so welcome

The owner, Deliana, was always available to deal with any queries. She is very friendly and eager to please, wanting to make sure that our holiday was good. Located approx. 5 minutes walk to the sea and, perhaps 15 minutes gentle uphill stroll to Arroya this apartment was ideally suited to us. There is a well stocked Mas supermarket and lots of bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk with something for all tastes. The immediate area is generally residential and, therefore, quiet at night time all good for a peaceful night's sleep. The apartment is well appointed. Very comfortable beds. The kitchenette is adequate and the bathroom is fine. As promised we had full English TV and WiFi. A few skirmishes with the heating/air con unit. This takes 1 Euro (for 90 minutes). Unfortunately it only seemed to start after the second Euro had been inserted and had no memory. If, as we did, you only need, perhaps 1 hour late evening, then you lose the balance of your money!! Perhaps a little TLC is due in the lounge. It is a little bit shabby, i.e. the soft furnishings. I found the abundance of baskets of artificial flowers and 70s pictures somewhat depressing. However, this is a personal view and did not detract from our holiday. The pool area has been recently refurbished and was open throughout our February stay, which was a pleasant surprise. The gardens are pretty and well maintained.

It is very well-equiped with a spacious living/dining room and a kitchen with all the mod cons. And with parking in the basement you never have to look for a parking space. The location has also been very convenient with a supermarket and restaurants just around the corner. If I have to think of something that I missed than that has to be a view. But that can easily be remedied by stepping outside: just cross the main road and you're at the seafront. Highly recommended Hock stayed 1 week in Feb 2017
