The accommodation was spacious and clean and the staff were friendly. The free Wi-fi was a big plus for our teenager - trapped on holiday with his parents! The apartments are in a residential area so car hire is essential, however a five minute drive brought you to a supermarket, a selection of restaurants/bars and the A7 - the large main road that leads to everywhere in Costa Del Sol. This is ideal for family holidays. It is not for groups of young people wanting nightlife.
The jacuzzi was a plus but began to smell of drains by the fourth day. It would have been nice to have had some instructions for it as we weren't sure whether we had to leave it quietly bubbling or whether we had to turn it off at night. (We couldn't find an off switch so we left it on!)
The walls are paper thin. You can hear your neighbours go to the toilet! You have to get used to the sound of air conditioning going on and off - our neighbours liked to turn theirs on and off in the early hours of the morning. We did not have one complete night's sleep!
The worst aspect of this holiday was two parties of Brits. (It was embarrassing to be British!)
One kept us awake with endless screaming and shouting. The other had a fight on their rooftop patio. This is out of the manager's control however,it would have been nice if security had shown up!
All in all it's a nice base for exploring and the hot tub was certainlt a touch of luxury. Take ear plugs and it might just be the perfect holiday location!
