Alcala is a beautiful town with lots of good restaurants and bars but no noisy nightlife. The apartment was very basic but very clean with a daily maid service.
We are not large people but struggled with the size of the shower. Bone of contention was no hot water in either the bathroom or kitchen sinks - only in the shower. Rather primitive and probably not legal in the UK. That said, the owners were very nice and obliging. When we told them that the balcony umbrella was broken, they immediately replaced it and also new patio lounger seat covers.
The redeeming feature was definitely the patio and view over the sea. This was outstanding and worth the climb up to the 4th floor, although that was a struggle. We would go back to this apartment but would be better prepared next time
