Comfortable, quiet, and private accommodation

  • 4 of 5

Having used this apartment many times, we obviously like it! Everything you would need for a comfortable stay - just add your own wine. The balcony get full sun in the mornings, and the roof solarium is private and you have the sun all day. Off-peak, there is hardly a soul on the beach through the week, although of course busier at weekends. There is ample choice of restaurants and bars around the area, particularly Los Belones, Cab De Palos, and Los Alcazares.

Nice, comfortable, home from home apartment. We felt it should have been far more thoroughly cleaned before our stay though.

Fabulous apartment and fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday and loved the apartment. We had everything we needed for the holiday. Was really clean and tidy. Beds very comfortable. Was so nice sitting out on the balcony in the morning and evenings. We used the sun loungers on the roof and the roof was a great place to catch some sun rays. Great location as swimming pool just downstairs from the apartment and beach/shop in walking distance.

Would definitely go back and would also recommend to friends and family.

lovely, roomy, well furnished apartment. Rooftop solarium adds to the size, and adds privacy also. The area is perfect for a nice quiet, conventional Spanish holiday.
