The kitchen is small but well-equipped with an excellent fridge freezer and good supply of hot water. The electric cooker was in great condition too as was the dish-washer. The excellent coffee machine was appreciated. Plenty of crockery and glasses. Bedrooms were comfortable with good beds and lovely crisp white sheets. The x2 ensuites were a huge bonus and the showers were very good. The rood terrace was also a huge bonus and a real sun-trap. Paca, the host, was absolutely brilliant - helpful and friendly throughout the entire process, from booking to checking us into the property. Her colleague who checked us out as we were leaving was equally commendable. Many thanks to both of them. The town itself is wonderful with excellent restaurants, cafés and shops. Everyone is very welcoming and helpful. We felt very much at home in this community. I will mention just a few little things would have made our stay even better, if that is possible. These can easily be remedied. In the absence of a kettle for boiling water, a small saucepan with one handle would be very useful to make pouring easier. A few condiments such as salt, pepper, oil would be greatly appreciated too as would a bottle of water in the fridge on arrival on a hot day ... Only one of the blinds in the living area was working - (this was not a problem as the apartment was naturally bright in any case and the air-con was very efficient) - except for the one in the lower bedroom which didn't provide much black-out and unfortunately there is a bright light on the wall just outside this room ... We spent a fabulous week here in the catalan sunshine and really hope to return next June - we will book up again soon! Thank you very much!

Would thoroughly recommend this property . Thankyou Bas .

Appartment is in a great location and good condition, very close to beach which had really nice cafe/bars. Fantastic views from Appartment,. Well kitted out with washing machine/ dryer etc. Pools and gardens nice and well maintained. Would recommend having a car as supermarkets are quite a distance, although having train station close is a real plus. Great service into Barcelona and other smaller towns.
