No need for air conditioning as there is always a pleasant breeze, even in hot weather. For only €10 you can visit the nearby swimming pool as often as you like. The swimming pool and tennis courts belong to a restaurant, which is very nice, and convenient if you don't want to go far. We found some great restaurants for tapas and other meals in the old town and by the north beach, all good portions and good value and quality. Our favourite place to go was the nearby Sierra de Irta, which is great for walks and wildlife and snorkelling in the many rocky coves. The town of Peñiíscola is busy and lively, full of history and interesting old streets and a castle. You can walk there from the property in about 20-25 minutes. The walk back takes a little longer due to the steep hill, but it's good exercise! We used the car sometimes and walked sometimes. There is free car parking just outside the centre - we used the 'informal' parking lots near the cemetery, or the parking lot near the sports centre at the North Beach. There are also some beautiful and interesting historic places to visit within 60-90 minutes from Peñíscola, especially the Ebro Delta, which is rich with wildlife, including flamingoes in their natural habitat! A real treat. We also visited many hilltop castles. We definitely want to come back. There is still lots to explore! Very satisfied!

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.
