Great area close to bars and restaurants and the Italian over the road was excellent. Steve was extremely kind and helpful. Would highly recommend 😃

My husband flew over and we took the bus from Alicante airport which was really easy. We were met at the apartment by Terry who ran through everything. Absolutely everything you could need was provided. The apartment is really central and there was no noise. Absolutely faultless.

Shame about the sun terrace as it is not South/SW facing so hardly catches the sun. Overall it is good value for money and I would recommend it. Robert the owner also responds well to any communication.
