Playa III Los alcazares
Had a lovely two week stay here apt had everything we needed -first week we had family with us including 17 month old equipment was readily provided for him,and the secluded secure roof terrace was a real bonus,lovely pool description of property accurate -first time staying in real Spain in a working vibrant town on a lovely beach.
Great location, very comfortable, clean and well appointed apartment.
The private roof terrace was great for sun bathing and the swimming pool ideal for cooling off.
The beach is only a ten minute walk away and "The Square" is great for shopping, eating out and handy for the "Mercado" super market for stocking up on food and drink, where there is a vast range of fresh fruit, vegetables and fish, not to mention a huge selection of bread, pastries and the usual supermarket fare.
For eating out there is a broad range to suit all tastes and budgets. Our particular favourite was an Asian restaurant "Run."
The beach is safe and clean and certainly child friendly with no strong currents and gently shelving sea bed.
All in all, a great location and highly recommended.
