Also it benefits from being just 5 meters from the beach. You can enjoy a stroll along the newly constructed pedestrianised promenade into Torrevieja town center. Close by you will find bars, cafes, fishmongers, bakery, butchers and a small supermarket.

SMOKING IS ONLY PERMITTED ON THE PATIO
We had a lovely time here, there was no problems obtaining keys and everything was as explained. The pool was well maintained and clean and so were the foyer andd lifts etc.
The apartment was tidy and inviting and exactly as the pictures on the website. I would definately come here again, our 4 year old son didnt want to leave!
Satellite TV was not available, although Spanish channels connected after three weeks. No aircon for two weeks, thereafter impossible to set comfortable temperature. Although this apartment is well decorated and equipped we found it cold, damp and dark for a winter rental. It is well situated for the beach and there is a pleasant 20 minute walk into Torrevieja centre.
The satellite TV was explained, this cannot be guaranteed so I will remove the item from the advert. Here is an explanation. The problem is that to receive the Sky (British) signal in this part of Spain you need a 3 to 4 meter dish to pick up the very weak signal and most communities will not allow this. There are some people that manage to receive the signal and then re-broadcast it and sell it on it is illegal to re-broadcast the Sky signal. All you get is mobile phone number and someone comes round to collect the money. Last year I paid 400 Euro for one years rental and within the week they had been raided by the police and the signal was cut off, and this was not the first time this had happened to me. The air-conditioning had a fault and this was repaired as soon as an engineer was available. 3 small fan heaters were placed in the apartment and these have thermostatic controls and keep a good average temperature. The weather in Torrevieja up until a few years ago had an average rain fall of 3 days per year. Unfortunately like most places these days there are quite strange and erratic weather conditions. In general it still has very nice weather during the winter, reaching mid 70’s during the day. Unfortunately during their stay the weather was appalling, rain, cold and dark clouds so the comment “cold, damp and dark for a winter rental” is not a fair representation.
Lovely apartment, everything brand new, beach right on doorstep, highly recommended.
We found this apartment spotlessly clean and tidy. It was very comfortable for our family of four. All mod cons included (watch out ladies it even has a washing machine!) Being next to the pool we found it buzzing during the day but quiet at night. Fantastic!!!! We have only just got back and want to go again. Highly recommened

Mrs Bocquel (France)"logement très bien situé (centre ville à 5mn à pied, tous commerces proches ,3 plages à proximité)quartier très animé (pas facile de garer la voiture,surtout les soirs et weekend ).pour notre fils handicapé en fauteuil roulant : piscine accéssible avec rampes d'accès, 2 ascenseurs pour monter au logement seul petit soucis : Rentre la porte fenêtre donnant sur la terrasse et la grille de protection, il reste peu de place pour passer avec un fauteuil roulant, on y est arrivé en retirant les accoudoirs du fauteuil. Les 3 plages sont équipées de fauteuils amphibies pour descendre 1 personne handicapée dans la mer, nous n'avons donc pas rencontrer d'autres problèmes particuliers pour notre fils.remercions le propriétaire pour tous les renseignements donnés avant le départ."
