The apartment was perfect- clean and tidy, well equipped and plenty of space for a family of 4. The distance to the pool was about 10m, separated by a lockable gate which keeps the little ones safe. There are also bars on the windows and full shutters, and a dead lock on the front door to give you peace of mind. There was a few staple food items in the cupboard, and the owner had left us some cold bottled water for our arrival. The beach is only a stones throw away, as are plenty of restaurants, bars and ventas. That end of torrox is great for shell hunting, sunbathing, volley ball and there are toilets/showers on the beach also. It was great value for money, and the little touches like providing towels, a working TV and optional cleaning charge, are what will persuade us to return.
