I will try to highlight the main points to keep the review concise. This apartment was for my mum, 3 siblings (2 teenagers and one 11 year old) and one toddler and his father.
Please note this apartment is on the top floor with no lift which Sergi (the owner) has stated in his description. We did get tired but was a good work out. Not really much of a view but opposite the hotel Monterry and other apartment blocks surrounding.
The apartment itself is very modern and well kept. Tidy and organised. Really is about a minute from the beach. 2 rooms and a sofa bed which was a double was just right for us. Balcony which has automatic shutters. There was A/C but I told Sergi he should get some fans as I understand that electricity is expensive there.
There is a washing machine, microwave oven, cooker, fridge/freezer and standard cooking equipment. We found it cheaper to cook ourselves rather than eating out everyday. Lidl and Aldi were both around a 10-15 minute walk. The centre was not far either and had many of the shops we have in England.
The beach was a rocky/sandy beach not the soft sand but nonetheless was nice and the kids enjoyed it. There were many spanish tourists there and hardly any English therefore was quite difficult to communicate. Sergi tried his best to assist us and answer our questions. We did need to find a lot ourselves though as there was no information anywhere, no leaflets, no brochures etc.
Can feel quite isolated for English as nobody seems to speak much English. We did manage to find a halal meat shop which was unexpected and also halal takeaways in the centre. A few Moroccans there who knew some English.
I would say the apartment is of a high standard and the owner is very friendly and tried his best to assist us on the night we arrived. Bless him he even sent my house keys back in the post as I took them with me for some stupid reason... I have learnt my lesson!
I can't fault the apartment itself but in regards to the area, if you don't mind topless ladies at the beach and little English being spoke then it's all good!
