Loved it!

We chose to have a family holiday here to coincide with a big birthday (my 60th) and so the apartment needed to be everything we had hoped, based on the description given. We were not disappointed! The apartment offers everything a family could want for and is very well situated, well away from the busier clubs and bars at the northern end of sea front. The beach is a short walk down the hill and was never over crowded or too busy when we stayed in August and the complex pool is literally next to the apartment and can be seen from the large sun terrace. Everything in the apartment worked as it should and the air conditioning was especially welcome for our our peak of the summer heat stay. We opted not to rent a car but relied on private transfers to and from the airport and public transport getting around the local area. The bus service is frequent and cheap (just 1.20 euros to the Lidl store in Garrucha) and it stops at the bottom of the hill at the Puerto Marina Hotel. I'm aware that being car-less is not suitable for everyone though as, although it's quite pleasant walking down to the beach or bars and local shops, walking back up the hill, especially when its hot, does require a degree of fitness. However, a taxi to bring you back up to the apartment block is always an option. The views from the apartment are spectacular with some stunning sunrises over the sea in the morning followed by lovely views of the moon reflecting on the Mediterranean at night. Another review has mentioned the steps up the entrance of the apartment - yes there are 52 of them but as the apartment is built into the hillside there's really no getting away from them. Just take your time and enjoy the views on the way up :-) Finally, would I stay here again? Yes - I certainly would .
