There are two banks, two small supermarkets, an internet shop, a pharmacy, a hardware store, and a cafe bar restaurant.

    Accessibility
    The apartment is on the first floor accessed via steps so is not suitable for wheelchairs.

    Outside
    The large communal pool is surrounded by a lovely grass area. There are sunbeds, showers and toilets available. The pool has a security gate opened via a magnetic key. This is to ensure only tenants of the complex have access. It is because tenants from other hotels were using it as it is the best pool in the area.

    Important notes on accommodation

    The sofa bed opens into 2 single beds which can be used separately or put together as a double. An extra z-bed and a travel cot are available upon request. There is an iron and ironing board, a clothes airer and a separate fan available. Directly opposite the apartment is a childrens' playground suitable for children up to the age of around 8 years. Nearby is a small supermarket, a pharmacy, 2 banks, a Spanish coffee bar restaurant, a hardware store and an internet shop. We must also highly recommend an English bar/restaurant just a stones throw outside the main car park gates. The food is great and the staff are so friendly. The prices are so reasonable too. We had a Sunday roast with a giant Yorkshire pudding for just 3 euros!

    About the area

    Coast/Beach
    The complex is approximately 600 metres from the beach. The whole area is very flat which makes the short 10 minute stroll to the beach very easy. The 10km beach is uncrowded and has a wide paved promenade along its entire length with great restaurants and bars.

    Golf
    There is golf available at the Championship Playa Serena 18-hole golf course, just 5 minutes from the apartment. If it was allowed it is possible to hit a hole in one from the roof terrace into the 14th hole. There are further courses at La Envia and Almerimar around a 20 minute drive away.

    Playa Serena is an 18-hole, par 72 course featuring bunkers and natural lakes, making it a beautiful but challenging course. There is a pro shop and all equipment may be hired. The Clubhouse has changing facilities, a bar, restaurant, lounge and terrace overlooking the course.

    How to get there
    Regular flights from the UK via Easyjet from Gatwick, Ryanair from Stansted, Monarch from Manchester/Birmingham, BMI from East Midlands. Almeria airport is about 30 minutes from the apartment. We can offer a pick up service from the airport or you can easily hire a car there.

    The beaches, restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance so a car is not a necessity. A bus service from outside the apartment takes you into the shopping centre of Roquetas or on to Almeria city and beyond.

    Further Details
    There is a real variety of things to see and do in the area. From wonderful beaches to watersports, historical sites to shopping, there is something for everyone. As well as sun, sea and sand there are plenty of sports to take part in, such as watersports, a water park, go-karting, an aquarium and golf. There are bikes for hire as well as 3/4/or 5 seater family bikes. For those who prefer the easy option there is a land-train that goes past the apartment.

    For those who like shopping there is the Gran Plaza shopping centre in the centre of Roquetas, or many open air markets in the surrounding villages. On the next street there are many tourist/gift shops.

    Historical sites such as the castle at Roquetas, Almeria's 16th century cathedral or the Alhambra Palace in Granada are worth a visit.

    Bird-watchers can see flamingos and egrets at the Las Marinas salt marsh and Punta Entinas beaches a few miles south of Roquetas.

    The desert around Roquetas has been used to film many Spaghetti Westerns and there is a Western based theme park and animal zoo at Mini-Hollywood.

    Guest comments

    Previous guests have remarked how suitable the complex is for people with children, as its child friendly gardens are securely walled with exits/entrances only via keyed gates and a reception house. Others have also mentioned how much better these apartments are for holidays as that is what they were originally built and designed forFor instance other apartments don't normally have a reception service which can be so useful when you are in another country and don't know the area. Many guests also mention how great the pool is and how much they love the private roof terrace.

    "The apartment was in a very good location and would have been suitable for a young family. The beach was only a short walk away and good access by bus & walk to Roquetas town centre and to Almeria."

    "We had a lovely time at the apartment and were extremely pleased that it had aircon which is a major plus. The whole complex was well kept and maintained with the right level of security."

    About the Owner

    We are Danny & Helen Murphy and live in Crawley, West Sussex with our young family. We've owned the apartment since 2005. We were renting to long term tenants for a few years before we started renting to holidaymakers.

    We also jointly own a self-built B&B house an hour from Roquetas. It is run by Danny's brother, who also takes care of the apartment in Roquetas, sorts keys and offers transport to and from the airport. The house and its volcano and the ancient touristic village of Nijar are well worth a visit.

    Year property purchased: 2005

    Why this location?

    The main thing for us is the friendly community of English and Spanish there. Everyone is so welcoming and the cost of living is considerably lower than it is in England. One day we may end up living there!

    What are the unique benefits of the property?

    This apartment is well situated, just far enough away from the busy shops and restaurants, yet still within easy walking distance. Everything you could need is there. You don't really need a car but if you have one there is secure parking inside the walls of the complex. The remote controlled gates make using a car so much more convenient and there are always sufficient parking spaces. Our daughters particularly love the children's playground, often gazing at it from the apartment window until we give in and take them there to have a great time - the ideal thing to do before bedtime to burn off that extra energy!
