Fantastic Family Apartment

5 of 5
We've just returned from a great two week stay and can't say enough about how great the apartment was and how helpful Emil was during our stay. So, useful info... we're a family of four - two adults, two children aged 10 and 7. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay, the pictures given on this site are all accurate. The kitchen is modern, clean and well stocked with crockery, cutlery, glasses, pots, pans etc as well as a much used coffee maker! Lounge area has plenty of space, bedrooms have plenty of storage and there's room for suitcases in the large washing machine cupboard. Bathroom is modern and clean, plenty of towels. Balcony area was perfect for sitting out in the evening to eat as well as to just relax and have a glass of wine once the kids were in bed. Pool area is clean and well maintained, plenty of space for everyone. Apartment block as a whole is very clean and looked after well. Supermarket next door is handy and always very busy, Carrefour is just a short walk or drive away and is probably a bit better. For us the location was perfect - it's about a 10-15 min walk down to the 'main' area and beach of Santa Margarita so close enough but away from the hustle and bustle. It would probably take 20-30 mins to walk in to Roses along the beachfront with the children, though we didn't try it. It takes about 10 mins to drive in to Roses centre and is very straightforward. There is a lot to do in the local area both beach sport and historic sites. With older kids a lot of adrenalin beach activities to try nearby. The Aqua Park was a big hit with our children, we went on an overcast Tuesday and didn't have to queue very much for any of the rides, I think it would be a very different story on a sunny day. Emil was a great host - met us at the apartment with no problems, even though we arrived later than expected. He gave us lots of advice on places to visit, the best beaches, restaurant tips and most importantly the best places for croissants and pain chocolat! When we had one slight issue with the apartment - a door sticking - he was round and sorted it straight away. Really couldn't have asked for anything more, he was great! Highly recommend the accommodation for a family.

Delightful

Fabulous panoramic view and good apartment facilities. Clean and comfortable. Lovely accessible walks and beaches by foot. Look forward to staying again especially when the outdoor small pool is completed. Kids missed dipping in a pool. Thank you Imma for a lovely stay.
