The living room and kitchen very well presented. 10 adult stayed here and we had more then enough space. The outdoor pool was great along with the games room. The extra Fridge and Freezer in the utility room was much needed and used well for all the beers and soft drinks. Amazing views from the 1st floor and penthouse of Alella. The Ocata beach was beautiful, quiet, clean sand, plenty of space, crystal waters, friendly people, great bars and plently to eat. We all enjoyed our stay here, thank you Sonia and Kim for a pleasant weekend. Definitely will recommend to friends and family.

The building is a gem, the bedrooms spacious and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the garden/pool perfect for lounging in the sun. Gemma, the host, could not have been more helpful during our stay and is a real gem of a person - Thank you so much for your help!
