The apartment, its accessories and the roof terrace were very much more than we expected. Add to that the closeness of the fantastic beach, which was almost empy (in August!!), and also the other beautiful places easily reached by car, we were more than pleasantly surprised.

Nice apartment and good facilities within in. Lovely location, however, not many eating/drinking facilities within close range. We had a car so this wasnt a real problem. Lovely beaches and very quiet.

A well equipped and spacious apartment. Good quality fixtures and fittings - nice touch to have beach towels, parasol and beach chairs available. Washing machine very useful. Easy walking distance to the beach. Roof terrace is great but gets very hot in summer sun! (would benefit from some shading). Would recommend a car as local supermarket and restaurant facilities not that good, but better facilities are available within a few minutes drive - try the new Mercadona supermarket on the road to Vera town, open all day (not sundays) and nicely air conditioned. Also the new Consum supermarket next to the Water Park. Suprised that no safe provided for valuables. Pool facilities excellent - nicely manicured lawns and palm trees around the pool.

I went to the apartment last September. I had a lovely time. It is such a peaceful area. The apartment contained everything we needed and was beautifully decorated. There are lots of lovely restaurants and the beach is so close that you can see it from the balcony. I have now been to the apartment twice and would definitely recommend it and go back myself."
It was lovely to go somewhere so totaly relaxing. We had the option of jumping in the car to go exploring, but who would want to when you can lay on the beach all day and BBQ sea food on the roof at night!.
