Really enjoyed our stay. The apartment has everything you need although a bit cluttered so we had to be careful to keep our stuff separate. The roof terrace and upstairs kitchen are a real bonus. The cafe on the pavement just up the road is very good. If your Spanish isn't too good you need to remember that you have to choose your tapa from the menu when you buy a drink! if you are planning on doing a lot of cooking then the local food shops are rather basic and not necessarily open much early in the season.
If you are into bird watching the adjacent salt pans are good and can be viewed from the roof terrace. There is also some good birding if you walk north along the beach out of Cabo de Gata. If you prefer harder walking the go to the lighthouse and walk towards San Jose.
Many thanks to Delores, Placido and Ana for looking after us. We would happily have stayed longer.
