The apartment has a south/westerly facing balcony and a private roof terrace which benefits from the sun all day from 10am - 6pm. Our apartment is equipped with satellite TV (English channels), CD, DVD, free air-conditioning/heat, games, CDs, DVDs and books. The pool area is very well kept and is open from June through to September. Roquetas de Mar is the foremost tourist location on the Costa Almeria and is where the Spanish holiday began. The Almeria region boasts over three thousand hours of sunshine per year and the lowest rainfall in Europe, which makes it a great place for winter holidays as well as a fantastic summer resort. Roquetas de Mar is set on flat terrain which makes it an ideal holiday place for those in wheelchairs or pushing prams. The apartment is only a thirty minute drive from Almeria airport. There is a golf course in the heart of Roquetas De Mar and many more courses within the Almeria region. Roquetas de Mar has a good selection of quality restaurants and bars. The roof terrace is a great place to let children run around, but children must be supervised at all times as the staircase up to the roof is steep.
The apartment is in the heart of Roquetas de Mar. Almeria is the nearest city which is about thirty minutes away by car but if you prefer not to hire a car and take the bus instead, it should cost approximately two Euros per person each way. If you do decide to go to Almeria, please take in to consideration the siesta time (between 1pm-5pm) when all shops close.
Roquetas de Mar is an ideal place for walkers, cyclists, golfers, people who enjoy water sports. The Parque Natural is a huge nature reserve where flamingos can be seen living in their own natural habitat.
In the summer months, there is a water park the edge of the town (taxi costs about 5 Euros each way), and, of course, the famous bull ring where you can see a bull fight or even a pop concert – see the Tourist Information Office for more details. There is also the Gran Plaza shopping centre where you can do a spot of shopping, have a coffee and watch the World go by or even see a film at the cinema.
There is a huge variety of bars and restaurants in close proximity to our apartment. Most of the Spanish bars serve excellent tapas free of charge when you purchase an alcoholic drink. Don't forget to sample some of the Serrano ham and some Jerez (sherry).
Alternatively, if a quiet night in is what you fancy, there is an excellent supermarket opposite our apartment with a fresh fish counter, deli counter and extensive wine selection.

The beach is a 5-7 minute walk from the apartment and has a flat promenade stretching for about 3 kms right along the beach front down to the castle, harbour and marina. The beach is deep and long so it hardly seems busy even in the summer months.
There are some local courses, one of which is a 2 minute drive away, at Playa Serena, but there are many more courses around the Almeria region within a short drive away.
The pool is shared between the occupants of the residential blocks and is therefore quite quiet. There is also a smaller swimming pool in the block next door which residents can also use.
