                                                El Palo apartment

                                                Very enjoyable, the weather was great and so was the apartment - clean and tidy, and lovely décor. Enjoyed being amongst the 'locals' and eating at the multitude of fish restaurants that our host Isabela recommended to us - thank you.

                                                This apartment is a great place for family holidays. I spent 5 days with my 2 young daughters my mum and a friend. Very clean, conformable, WiFi very good. Ester and Cristina very helpful. The area is full of cafes, restaurants and playgrounds, 5 minuts walk to the beach and bus stop to go to the old town. We highly recommend it and will go back! Thank you very much Ester Cristina and Susana. See you soon Renata Ferrari
