Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This studio apartment is in an ideal location for us. Just above Bonanza Square and 5 minutes walk to the Arroya. Beach is 10 minutes down the hill.

The apartment is clean and well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. We were glad of the TV and video as we had 2 days of torrential rain!

Loads of shops and good place to eat and drink nearby.

Highly recommended.

Very clean pleasant apartment with everything needed supplied.

  • 5 of 5

There was an excellent power shower and top opening washing machine in the bathroom. The kitchen was well equipped for a holidays needs with an air cooker which we found very useful for the days we ate in. A small thing I was worried about was there might not be enough coat hangers but there were plenty and I thought the storage was very adequate for a small apartment. Our only lack was no wifi but that is the case with many places. Overall - excellent.
