« If you're weary browsing … this is the one! The apartment is hard to fault, whatever your needs. My wife and I spent a week here with our three young children (8, 5, 3) at the end of August and could not have wished for a more perfect venue. It has three bedrooms plus bathroom on the first floor; downstairs, on the raised ground floor, there's a well-equipped kitchen (including large freezer and capsule coffee machine) and a spacious reception room with lounge and dining areas. Lovely balcony too, with retractable sun canopy, perfect for meals al fresco. All the amenities work well, including DVD player (with some films provided) and - crucially - air conditioning on both floors. We were always comfortable despite temperatures of over 40 degrees outside. Although we didn't rent the basement studio as a sleeping area, we were given a key so that we could use the shower (avoids bringing sand into the main apartment), the washing machine and all the beach equipment - chairs, body boards, buckets and spades, umbrellas, etc.
Roberto and María Luisa are the owners but behave like hosts. The arrangements for booking, payment, welcome, return of deposit, etc all ran like clockwork. Roberto even drove me to a supermarket half way through our stay, waited while I shopped, and then drove me and the shopping home! (We hadn't hired a car because the apartment is so near the beach - only 3 minutes walk even with young children.)
The beaches are wonderful - sandy, clean and uncrowded. lined with dunes rather than ugly apartment blocks. Safe for the kids too, because the water remains shallow a long way out. The beach bars are not expensive, and some will order food for you from local takeaways which you can then eat at a table on the sand.
The vast majority of tourists here are NOT English. Most are Spanish, some French. You won't find a full English breakfast but the paella is great if you know where to go. Ask Roberto for tips! »
