this is the first time we used tripadvisor to book an apartment. likewise it was the first time for Maria(apartment owner) in using trip advisor. typically travelling with young children abroad for the first time we were very nervous so packed loads, right down to tea coffee, sugar, wheatabix etc. on arrival we met Maria at the apartment, we were shown around and given keys. Maria knew we were coming with young kids so had been to the shops and bought milk and bottled water for us. we were shown around the apartment and soon realised that majority of what we had packed like hair dryer, iron, wash powder, comfort, soap, shampoo's, was all in the apartment. the kitchen is fully kitted with all the small utensils, coffee maker, dishwasher, microwave, fridge freezer, hot water! a small area next to the kitchen hosts a washing machine, separate dryer and washing line.
the apartment is based on the first floor and a small 1/2 person lift is available. the apartment is a stone throw away from the metro line, the zoo is a 5 minute walk down the same road and a gentle walk to the beach takes 10 minutes. its an awesome location with cafes and restuarants on the same road that are alot cheaper than the promenade. cheap pizza shop 50yds away any pizza freshly baked at 5 euro's (what more do you need!!) mercadona is 5 mins walk away and just like morrisons!
Maria was a great host and we got on really well, a very pleasant and warm host. exchanged whats app numbers to remain in contact if we needed help with anything.
