Walking to Villamartin Plaza was not a viable option so a car is a must. Taxi's are good so this did not really detract from our experience. Details of local amenities, bars and restaurants and contact numbers for local Taxi firms would have been useful. Overall the property was very good and we certainly enjoyed our stay.

                                                                                                  Just returned from a 4 night stay at Marks apartment. The location is right in the heart of the city, so plenty to see and do, beaches are within walking distance too. Being a central location it is quite busy during the day but surprisingly quiet at night. The apartment itself is beautifully set out with three good sized bedrooms and two toilets, one of which has a very good size shower. The kitchen is of a good size and has everything you would need for your stay, the living space has plenty of seating and a dining table for six. There is a wrap around balcony which is perfect for sitting and watching the world go by. We always hire a car when we go to Spain but because of the central location I would recommend asking Marcella to pick you up from the airport as we ended up having the car towed away as we did not know that a construction company had permits for the area that we parked in. Terry and Marcella are fabulous people, very happy to help with any situation and if it wasn't for Marcella I reckon we would have still been looking for our hire car. Unfortunately we were there when Torrevieja experienced adverse weather conditions for the time of year but according to the locals we were experiencing a historical event with the first snow fall in over 90 years, they were excited about it even if we weren't. Having said this the apartment is so comfortable that we could have a couple of chill down days, staying in and watching tv and totally relaxing, which we definitely needed. I celebrated my 50th birthday whilst there and Mark had even left me a bottle of champagne in the fridge, thank you so much, I was really touched. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, and have already told friends about it who are looking to get away in April.
