Holly was one of LosLocosBeach.com's resident writers, having posted on our blog about Torrevieja and the surrouding Costa Blanca area from 2016 to 2021 (and a one-off in 2022).

“We had a great time and a comfortable stay, the apartment has all the facilities one could think of. The location was perfect, just across from the beach with plenty of restaurants to suit all budgets. Kids had a good time. We received very good care from the management services who were at phone’s end. Right from the start of booking till the end, everything was organised. The rental price was very reasonable. Shall definitely come back and also recommend to family/friends.”

“It was lovely to be able to sit on the balcony and see the sea. We were happy with all aspects of the apartment and the accessibility to all amenities. Everything was superb and we would not change a thing. Would definitely like to come back. We had a brilliant holiday.”
