We stayed for a week in this new apartment in San Juan Playa. The location is good, with only a ten minute walk to the tram, some restaurants, the beach and the local supermarket. There are also some cafes within a five minute walk of the apartment - we had very good croissants from the 'Sweet Bakery'. The apartment is on the 4th floor of the block, but there are two lifts as well as stairs so access with luggage was not a problem.
The apartment was brand new, so everything was very clean and tidy and it is very well equipped. Ana had provided nice touches including a bowl of fruit, washing tabs for the dishwasher and washing machine and basic toiletries in the bathroom. There were four of us staying in the apartment - our teenage daughters slept on the sofa bed in the lounge which was very easy to pull out each evening and was of a good size for sharing. Even with the bed extended the apartment did not feel too overcrowded, although we did put it away each day.
There is a small balcony which catches the morning sun and overlooks the grounds and the swimming pool. We didn't use the pool - it was April and was probably cold! - but we did notice that it was well maintained and regularly cleaned.
We often hire a car when we are on holiday, but on this occasion we decided to use the tram and although it is a ten minute walk to the tram stop, we did not find this a problem and went into the city most days exploring the city, visiting the Castell de la Santa Barbara, walking along the prom and round the Marina and also enjoyed trips out of the city to Villajoyosa, El Campello and Altea.
We ate out most nights - either in Alicante itself (excellent Tapas in D'Tablas) or at Campo de Golf where there are a few restaurants - we enjoyed 'Simone' which is an Italian restaurant. We also used the kitchen in the apartment a couple of times and it had everything we needed including oven, microwave, full size fridge freezer, pans, crockery and cutlery and even spatulas, sieves and cheese grater which we don't always find in holiday apartments!
The bathroom is a good size and the shower works well. The shower is fed from a hot water tank though, so you need to be aware that there isn't enough water for 4 people to shower at the same time (if 2 of them are teenagers!). We found it sufficient for us though and it was set to be on all day, so soon reheated if the hot water ran out.
If we come back to this area, we would stay here again.
