The view is the thing that sold it to us and we weren't disappointed. We went in late May and the town itself was quiet and restaurants operate a much more Spanish timetable of late lunch and late evening opening (8pm) so with twins of nearly 6 it took a few days to adjust to the way of life.
Hiring a car is essential and it is well worth it to see some of the amazing scenery in and around the Cabo de Gata nature reserve. The beach restaurant at La Isletta de Moro and the Beaches of Genoveses and Monsul are some of the best holiday finds ever.
The apartment itself is a two minute drive from the small town centre with some lovely shops and local restaurants, a two minute stroll to a small beach or a larger beach in the town itself.
The whole place has a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere with the Spanish siesta still very much in force.
If you want bustling nightlife this is not the place to go, if you want a relaxing time with amazing scenery and good local food then I can definitely recommend this apartment and the town of San Jose.
Oh and to make you relax and switch off there is no English TV just the view!
The apartment is a 15 minute walk into the town and harbour which was not a problem for us. It is very comfortable and well appointed with great views out to sea and the town. It is light with big windows on all sides. The two bedrooms are spacious and have plenty of storage space. The lounge and kitchen areas are well furnished and, as it was early season and many of the restaurants were not open, we could cater for ourselves in the evening very well. There is plenty of walking from the door in both directions and some lovely beaches within easy reach.
A full length mirror would make it even better! Many thanks for a very pleasant stay.
The apartment was excellent with great views of San Jose. Our host was helpful when a slight problem happened and the issue was resolved quickly.
We visited in late October and while it's the end of the holiday reason there was still a good choice of resturants.
