Just back from a week at Cala Blanca Apartments. I followed the advice given here and requested ground floor apartment and was pleasantly surprised at how spacious the accommodation was including 2 bathrooms both with shower over bath and bidet. There is no getting away from the fact that these apartments are 2 star, they are a little dated but overall they are clean and the beds in our apartment were the comfiest I've experienced in all my self catering holidays.
We were staying in No 14 and the main downside is that the bedrooms back on to a road which has 2 bars and because there is no air conditioning windows had to be left open and the noise really did disturb our sleep, going on until well into the small hours. Apartments with numbers 1-6 probably quieter.
There is a small swimming pool which we had to ourselves quite a lot as the beach is just across the road but my children preferred the pool to the sea. There are plenty of sunbeds, not the most comfortable, but enough to go round but no umbrellas and limited shade.
There are a number of restaurants nearby, our favourites were Cala Blanca restaurant and Miramar (across beach overlooking bay, great views). There is a supermarket behind the apartments which had everything we needed but not sure if there is a cheaper one elsewhere.
Transfer was about 45 minutes by private taxi.
We visited end July/early August and did not have a problem with mosquitos but there were lots of ants, inside the apartment as well as around the pool. There were also lots and lots of little black flies in the apartments, these did not appear to sting or bite though. There was a large can of insect spray in the cupboard so we sprayed our rooms regularly.
As others have said, when you arrive you have to ring reception and they let you know what number your apartment is. Our towels were changed 3 times and bed linen and full clean mid week.
Overall I would recommend these apartments if you are on a budget - we went with realistic expectations and were therefore pleasantly surprised but so many people pay for 2 star and expect 5 star! I would say the resort is well suited to families rather than couples or groups looking for lots of nightlife.
