The two bedroomed, two bathroomed bungalow has everything the holiday maker needed for a very comprtable holiday. Enclosed garden to keep our two cocker Spaniels safe outside loungers (4) were ideal.wrought iron patio set on the balcony for our meals were lovely. Inside the bungalow were 2 bedrooms (1 ensuite) the lounge/diner was very comfortable with 2 sofas and english TV and of course WiFi !! Kitchen area had all mod cons and even a dishwasher. 10 to 15 mins by car to all of the resorts yet very quiet and peaceful on the complex, which by the way had a communal swimming pool. Excellent place and we shall be back !! Sue & Dennis, Val & Kev and Susy & Holly

The accomodation is really well equipped and was very clean when we arrived. The pool is lovely and the urbanisation is very nice. There are a few bars and eating places. We love the nearby town of Los Montesinos. Everywhere is so close, for example the beach is about a 15 minute drive away. I would definately recommend staying here.

Helpful & swift communication from the owner, with useful guides for what to do in the town and area, and also comprehensive guide to the apartment, so nothing was unexplained. Roof top pool 'refreshing' but just tolerable given the time of year (probably better June onwards) Local hosts (Bruce & June) on hand for any queries, not that we had any. Thanks for the house.
