All facilities worked well. Water was hot and plentiful. Everything available in kitchen to prepare meals. Beds extra comfortable with memory foam filling. Large balcony with a magnificent breathtaking view. The resort is typically Spanish and we felt very safe. Apartment is situated on south beach and is close to bars and restaurants. The friendly owner, Josefina, welcomed us personally and offered us an earlier check in and was close by if we had any problems. Josefina was there for our departure and telephoned a taxi for us. Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment in its wonderful location. We had a most memorable stay.
