Great apartment, great facilities, tho only one bedroom had air con and it was needed. Great location, 10 min walk to station/supermarket/beach. Not much nightlife - a handful of restaurants, but Barcelona only a train ride away. The beach was busy at the weekend but very quiet during the week. We rarely saw anyone else in the pool.
We didn't do very much except the beach and the pool. We did a bike tour of Barcelona which we recommend, we also did a bus tour, which was ok. We didn't feel inclined to visit other Barcelona attractions as it was too hot, too far and too easy to stay nearer the apartment and enjoy the beach and pool!
We didn't hire a car this time and it was very easy using the train from the airport. The supermarket was a little far without a car as we were buying drinks but is was ok.
We would definitely recommend the apartment for a relaxing holiday, but if you want to charge round Barcelona go a bit closer to the city!
We loved every minute we spent in Belinda's wonderful apartment. Before arrival Belinda was very helpful, answering all my questions quickly. Transport from Barcelona was simple, €4.30 each from the Playa De la Catalunya train/metro station. The directions Belinda gave us were perfect, it really is just a 2 minute walk from the train station.
The apartment was spotless and everything was thought of, including beach towels. We visited at the end May/beginning of June, and we had the pool to ourselves for most of the week. There were 7 of us with 4 children aged 11, 13 and 14 and the pool was perfect as the main section is big enough and deep enough for diving and lengths. The smaller part is a shallow children's pool. We could watch the children in the pool from our balcony and they even went in at night as it is open until 23:00. The local area is quiet, there are several local restaurants, a bakery, supermarket and pharmacy within a couple of minutes walk. Belinda recommended some local restaurants, all of which were very nice. The local beach is less than 5 minutes walk, we walked through the marina to the next beach where there are football and basketball nets, play and exercise equipment. Overall we had a fantastic week and I highly recommend the apartment and area for a relaxing beach break.
