We can recommend this apartment to other guests at any time. Perhaps we will come back again. Something we must complain about: There is no WIFI or WLAN in the house. Therefore, we could not use the laptop brought along unfortunately. But only from the mobile expensive to go. Unfortunately, due to the low season was not very busy. But that was not only in the plant but everywhere. Best regards, Carmen Karger

Loved it the first time and even more the second time. The apartment is fab and is well maintained with everything you could possibly need, a definite home from home. We just loved sitting out on the patio area in the sun which is overhead all day, also a beautiful communal pool to use which is secure and immaculate with a spa pool beside it which I spent a lot of time in. Puerto Rey has lots of local shops and nearby restaurants to eat out in which are fabulous. Victors is a nearby pub which serves local tapas and a mean glass of wine and a vvv cold san Miguel in the sunshine.(Just loved sitting out here and chilling out during the day). Plenty of places to visit, a market to visit each day in nearby towns if you wish. The day in Mojacar was great, old mojacar town is well worth a visit, quaint little village with lots of cafe's and restaurants to visit. And don't forget to visit my favourite Merca China, a shop across from the apartment which sells everything you could possibly ever need. We will be back soon. Mark x

We stayed 2 families each with 2 children so 8 in total and we had plenty of room. The rooms were great, the pool was great and the beach was literally a 30second walk from the front gate of the villa. There are some great views from the roof terrace which is really big. The villa had a pool table and a table tennis table which we didn't use because the beach was so close, we took our bat and balls to the beach.There are 3 beach bars/restaurants on the beach all 2mins walk were we ate and had drinks. There were also about 5/7 restaurants and a few shops (for essentials) by the big hotel which is a 8-10min walk, Frankies Bar probably being the most well known. We literally used the car to do our big shopping and walked everywhere else. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would recommend the villa. Eddie is a really nice guy and was always around if we needed any help. Michael Needham
