Maria's apartment is lovely, well equipped and spacious and Maria's listing does not fully do the apartment justice. The apartment has a lot of facilities not listed - air conditioning, washing machine, coffee machine, electric hob, mini oven/grill, microwave, endless supply of cups, glasses, plates, lovely large fridge freezer. Two large bedrooms with beds for 6 people in total and a sofa bed for another 2. Plenty of towels, bed linen and quilts for the colder weather. A heater, hair dryer and straighteners. Bath, shower, bidet and toilet. The balcony is large with seating for up to 9 people with lovely views of the beach, ocean and port and industrial area of Tarragona, which is interesting to sit and watch. The block is quiet with a lot of residents. The pool is clean and a good size with plenty of terraced area. It is particularly quiet between the hours of 2-5pm. The nearby beach is lovely with soft sand and gently sloping sea bed ideal for small children to paddle in. There are shops and the bus stop to get to La Pineda centre, Salou, Tarragona and beyond a ten minute walk away with some restaurants/bars/cafes in the immediate vicinity, which is a quiet area of La Pineda. MAria also very kindly left us water, milk, bread and other groceries at no extra cost! The only negative I would give is that I would recommend this apartment only if you speak Spanish, which we do not! We could get by using the odd word and gesturing when Maria showed us the apartment and we ordered food/caught the bus, but when we encountered some problems (a sick child and our passports being accidentally locked in the apartment when we were leaving for the airport) the language barrier proved a problem.
