Funny, but I'm always one for reading reviews before making decisions about purchasing, but rarely write or leave reviews. As there are no reviews for this apartment, I thought I should leave a review.
Let me start with the downside 1st as this is the easy part. This is a relatively old building and there's no air con (ceiling fans in both bedrooms) and the apartment is located on the 13th floor, so if traveling with small / young kids, you may be deterred by this (we traveled with kids aged 12 & 7 and this wasn't a problem at all) .
These are the only downsides in my opinion and I'm being picky here!
There are so many excellent features to this apartment and I'll try and list as many as I can: Free WiFi, English TV channels (including movies & sports), 2 bathrooms (both with baths & showers), 2 x Flat screen TVs (1 in twin room), fantastic power shower effect in main bathroom, washing machine & dryer, iron & ironing board, fully equipped kitchen, really good quality towels, really clean and it felt like a "home from home" as opposed to a holiday apartment.
As for the view - stunning. Apartment gets the sun in the morning from sunrise to @ lunchtime.
The beach is a 5 min walk or there is an outdoor pool (unheated) attached to the apartment. Restaurants are a 5 min walk away (turn right on leaving the apartment and following the road taking the right hand fork / side street) so are the 2 Plazza's where the locals gather for Tapas & drinks.
Burger King is on the doorstep (literally) as to is an ATM and across the road is the harbour (there are restaurants & bars here as well which are worth exploring).
The weather was so good for our trip that we didn't get to visit the BioParc Zoo, but this is only a 14 min walk away (1.2Km).
The bus and train stations again are only a 5 min stroll and we found 2 supermarkets about a 6 min walk away (you need to bring shopping bags, but there are some in the apartment!).
If it rains, there are even some umbrellas in the apartment. One light bulb went during our stay and yes, there were some spares in the Kitchen!
Airport collection and drop off can also be arranged with an english speaking driver.
Last comment (well, almost) - the photo's and property description of the apartment are 100% accurate.
Would I stay here again and recommend this apartment to anyone else - my 2 boys want to come back and they loved it! They were really happy here and, as an added bonus, my wife loved it too - need I say more?
