Our family (2 couples and myself) booked this wonderful apartment for a week at the beginning of September. It was even better than we were expecting. The apartment is very spacious and extremely well equipped. The complex is gated and very well maintained. We took a bus (Number 30) from Almeria Airport. €1.05 per person. Certainly better than €24 for a taxi and only took 30 minutes. The bus stops opposite the apartment complex entrance (look out for the English school). During the week we took the same bus into Almeria a few times to go to the bank, do some sight seeing and shopping. Again only €1.05 per person. The local area, El Toyo, is fairly quiet. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. There is a large golf course next door. The beach boardwalk area looks beautiful and is less than a 10 minute walk from the apartment. I went for a run every morning and met some like minded people. The small restaurant area at the Plaza was very lively with lots of entertainment for children also. We ate at the local Italian restaurant 3 times as the food was excellent and not exorbitant. Good choice for vegetarians. More restaurants and a decent sized supermarket can be found further along the beach towards Cabo De Gata Natural Park. Although we found the Lidl in Almeria much cheaper and offered more selection. We found the beach a bit stony in areas so we tended to make use of the pool on the complex. The pool is very large. There is even a baby pool. They employ a lifeguard. The area around the pool is lush grass with natural looking sun shelters. I don't think this area would appeal if you're looking for a rowdy nightlife but definitely suitable for families with children and also for couples looking for a nice relaxing holiday in a beautiful area. Maia, the owner, was away when we were there so we were met by her sister Veronica (we knew this ahead of time and had been provided with an array of contact options. We were also able to contact Maia by email and she was very quick to get back to us. She was kind enough to let us check in early and also check out much later as we had an evening flight home. We would definitely book here again without any hesitation.
