The apartment itself was clean and well equipped with plenty of glasses, plates, towels, bedding etc as well as sun beds and chairs on the large balcony. All the furniture was modern , relatively new and in excellent condition. The WIFI was reliable and worked in the whole apartment.
The apartment complex was really well maintained. The pool was actually pleasantly warm at the end of a sunny day. There was a nice area around it where you could lie with parasols. There is a lift so you don't have to carry your suitcases up to the penthouse.
The location was ideal. It is close to the beach, where there are plenty local bars and restaurants. Though we enjoyed the walk along the beach to the other areas of the resort. Everyone we met was really helpful and friendly despite our lack of Spanish.
The beach is a fine shingle not sand but it is well looked after and is clean with good facilities, regular showers, water fountains along the beach front. There are lots of sun beds for hire at 3.5 euro a day and most are associated with a restaurants where you can use the facilities. There are also lots of children's play areas around the resort including on the beach.
You do not need a car the apartment is close to bus stops and the bus services is approx every 30-45 minutes during the day to Almeria with some additional buses locally. The resort is very spread out but its all flat and very accessible.
I would definitely recommend this apartment and the Roquetas for anyone wanting a quieter holiday or for families.
Clean, airy apartment fairly close to beach and shops although we had a car, so it wasn't so important for us to be close to everything. Views from the roof terrace very nice too. Everything provided that you would need i.e. bedding, towels, kitchen equipment etc. The only slight negative was the shower, it's showing it's age a little and water pressure wasn't great, however, as there's an ample bath too, it wasn't that big an issue for us. Certainly wouldn't stop us staying again if we were ever back to visit this lovely little corner of Almeria and at such a reasonable price, it would be hard to better, so giving 5 stars in spite of the small issue with the shower.

Flat in the middle of Roquetas, not driving do rely on buses which in winter may not b as often as in high season. Went Almeria on bus part of road closed - landslide I think so trip bit longer but pleasant. Found bus for airport no. 22 now. Almeria lovely place.
My husband, 4 year old and I stayed in July this year and had a a lovely break. The apartment was clean, spacious and on a nice complex. We liked it so much we're hoping to return next year. Thanks both
Booked as a 5 day getaway. Lovely apartment, well equipped and very clean on arrival.
It is located about a 20 minute stroll from the marina along the beach front promenade. Locally there are bars all serving delicious tapas. I had a car but it is 5 minutes from the beach so apart from getting from the airport you will not need one.
Great communication from the owners.
