We have just returned from our stay in this lovely apartment.
It occupies one of the best, most central locations in La Pineda, being just a few metres from the beach and the seafront shops and restaurants. The water park is just a few minutes walk away and part of it, which opens during the evening for bungee trampolining, pedal go-carting and other activities, is just across the road. There are a couple of bars/restaurants in the complex and the nearest supermarket is just around the corner.
The apartment has a large balcony with views towards the seafront, an attractive and reasonably sized lounge dining room and a small kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a hob, microwave/grill and fridge freezer. The only amenity lacking was air conditioning, but as the apartment was well ventilated and the evenings were cool, this was not a problem.
Bart, who manages the apartment on behalf of the owners, is very helpful and friendly and when there was a problem with the washing machine, Bart and his wife took our washing home and laundered it for us.
The resort of La Pineda has a very pleasant, continental atmosphere. Most of the holiday makers seem to be families, predominantly from within Spain, France and Holland. We saw some British and Irish families, who were staying in all-inclusive hotels. There are a number of nice restaurants and cafes, as well as an excellent crepe stall and several gelaterias.
The beach has a "Blue Flag" award. It is kept very clean and the water was crystal clear. At times, it was a bit windy and surfing was possible. The nearby port of Tarragonia can be seen from the beach and it was interesting watching the ships.
I would recommend this apartment for a very pleasant holiday.
