    "Apartment."

    Stayed at the Apartment for the whole month of March, 2014. The apartment is very well equipped, modern and in a superb location. The complex is very quiet and secure. Having been to Roquetas for the last 31 years we were in no way disappointed with are lovely apartment. The owners Sue and Ray were very lovely people and came to visit us at the apartment which was very nice for us. As mentioned in other reviews the location is ideal for everything. The weather for March was nice with only 1 hour of rain for the whole month. Want to go again if the dates are available, in 2015.

    "great holiday "

    We spent 3 weeks here in October. The apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable. Close to supermarkets, friendly tapas bars and within walking distance of the beach. The weather was fantastic. 26-30C. Buses stop just outside apartment complex for Almeria and Roquetas and were very cheap. Very little traffic immediatly outside apartment so very quiet and relaxing when sitting on roof terrace with spectacular views of mountains. The grounds and pool area were well maintained and very clean. You can walk along beach promenade onto local nature reserve or to Roquetas, bike hire also nearby. A lovely apartment and resort.

    Response to review:
    Glad you had a great time and the weather was so warm. Roquetas de Mar is very good for a spot of winter sun. The weather is usually great all the year round although cooler in the evenings in Winter. The buses are very good and it is possible to bus to the airport, with one change at Almeria bus station. The promenade is 10K in total, great for walking as totally flat and away from the traffic.

    About the Owner

    We are Ray and Sue and live near Kings Lynn in Norfolk, we have just retired from running a busy pub. We go to our apartment as often as possible, at least 3 times a year. We regard it as our second home and the decor and facilities available within reflect this. During the years we have been visiting Roquetas we have made many friends in the local community. Many people who rent the apartment return again and again.

    Year property purchased: 2003

    Why this location?

    We bought this property after looking in other areas of Spain because the area maintains it's Spanish origins. Many of the restaurants sell wonderful local Spanish food and the tapas bars are probably the best.

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    The best thing about the apartment is the location, not only is it situated in what is regarded locally as the best complex in the resort it is also the best apartment in the complex being on the end so benefiting from dual aspect windows and also overlooking the pool. It is also situated at the end of a no through road therefore being an exceptionally quiet location but still within a few minutes walk of the beach and all local amenities.
