Hi 

We are thinking of staying in this apartment complex for an extended period of time. It is a few streets behind Playa de Locos. 

Does anyone have any experience of these apartments, general state or repair, type of neighbourhood, pets allowed etc. 

I know the complex has a swimming pool in the shape of Spain, which is nice.

many thanks!

I don't know these particular apartments but the area around Playa de Las locos is nice. 
It can be very quiet during the off season months and very very busy in the summer season. 
A good mix of decent restaurants very close and an easy walk into the centre of Torrevieja. 
Parking can be very tricky so if the apt has underground parking that would be a bonus.

Thanks, when you say quiet it would be good to know if there are all year round residents or whether the place is like a ghost town! I guess we will find out.

Be careful of taking an 'exrended period' break, don't forget that if you are from the UK you can only stay for up to 90 days in a 180 day rolling period.

There are all year round residents in that area, yes. but a lot up that way are holiday lets. It won't be a ghost town Torrevieja never is.

Thanks! Extended, for me - thanks to a job, is anything more than 2 weeks!
Am aware of the visit limitations.

This is what I had hoped. Year round opening for a significant number of venues. My previous visits have mostly been peak shoulders rather than deep winter.

I don't know the complex itself but the pool will be a no-go in winter. Also you will need heating of some kind as you could be sunbathing in a sheltered spot during the day then in slippers, gown and multiple layers once the sun goes down.

Torrevieja is a working city so most areas are inhabited all year round.

This is your complex, https://maps.app.goo.gl/41oVxf8wbmSe7g6t9

Easy access to all the city and public transport, as 4 main bus routes pass close by, the A route on the coast and the A2, C (inward) and E (outward) on Calle Paris.

As for the pool, and temperature in general, as you are surrounded by buildings and will only get sun at peak times, be aware that as soon as the sun disappears that temperatures will drop suddenly and from Nov to Feb you will need heating and layered clothing

Hello

 Sorry to correct this but Line E goes to Los Balcones & Torrevieja Hospital and not near Los Locos area, best to stick to Line A along beach road as LineA2 is only every hour during winter months.

Cheers
