Thanks for such a detailed review, which will help others get a nice picture. Due to the "siesta" which is custom in Spain to avoid the hottest hours of the day, the evenings are well appreciated by the adults and the kids. There are many kids on the appartements, mostly in August, but they normally go to bed at 12:oo (AM) as it is not permitted to stay loud in residential areas after that time (therefore they wake up very late, almost at 13:00 PM and go afterwards and almost all day to the beach).
Thanks for staying with us and your time writing this review.
