Very quiet place in April which is what we wanted. Nice homely Spanish apartment. Hardly any cars driving past so it worked well to sit out on the front having breakfast, lunch or an evening drink. We didn't need a car and could walk along the boardwalk to other beaches. Would be a great place to hire bikes but we only had a few days so just wanted to chill out. Had 50 mph winds from the northeast for a day but were almost completely sheltered on our patio at the front which was great. Only a couple of places to eat nearby in April but it worked well for us. Supermarket 1 min away was very small but had the basics. All the locals and restaurant owners were so friendly and we were surprised how well priced drinks were. A really lovely little gem in an over developed Spain.
Only reason not to return would be the very small standard double bed and shower needed improving - we had to wait half an hour between showers to get temperature back up to hot so could be an issue with more than 2 people but guess that would be no problem having a cooler shower in the very hot days of summer. Definitely lovely place for a super quiet getaway. Only sounds were the sea and cicadas at night.
The property location was very good but the internal condition was not really up to standard for the price we paid. The property was not cleaned properly all the kitchen units were greasy to touch and the oven and trays took me forever to try and clean and the grill did not work at all. The electrics tripped all the time so you could not use the extractor hood if you had the hob on. The TV was useless and the DVD would switch off halfway through a film the music centre volume control was erratic. The siesta time was constantly disturbed by the banging gate to the complex and the parking space was a constant battle to try and get into. Sorry for all the negatives but if you dont know you cant improve on it.
Todo correcto, hemos pasado unas vacaciones en familia muy agradables, propietarios siempre atentos a cualquier duda o consulta. Zona tranquila donde poder pasear, hacer deporte o actividades acuáticas de cualquier tipo. Restaurantes cercanos y bares donde poder comer, cenar y salir a tomar una copa. El vehículo siempre tiene su plaza enfrente de la vivienda, no hemos tenido ningún problema de aparcamiento.
