We had a fantastic time , Dolores home was very clean, comfortable , well equipped and homely. With the salt flats at the rear of the apartment and the beach only 100 metres to the front what more could you wish for. At the start of May we expected the weather to be cool but it was very good , some days it was over 30 degrees but never uncomfortable with the sea breeze. We got in touch with a official local wildlife guide Jesus Contreras who took us out to the Desert of Tabernus and to the Rambla de Cabo de Gata (dry river beds) . He was very knowledgeable about local flora and fauna especially birdlife and where and how to find it . Having purchased a new camera Jesus was very generous with his time, experience and equipment . If you enjoy wildlife ,good Spanish home cooking , Cabo de Gata, Jesus Contreras and Dolores home are definitely well worth a visit .We hope to return soon .

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.
