Very nice and helpful hosts, Always ready to help out! Nice and clean appartment, with fresh linnen etc. Very good location in the middle of the town center, and, best of all maybe, very close to the beach and sea. Within 2 minutes you can take a swim in the sea!

They are in a great position for the shops and the beach. The town is lovely, kept very clean with lots of Tapas bars and restaurants. They hard to find if you don't know the... More

We loved this apartment. The bed was four poster and incredibly comfy with nice thick bedding for the chillier months. The apartment is very tastefully put together and is in a great location for shops, bars and restaurants a little set back from the beach front places. Iron and hairdryer was included and the shower was hot and powerful. A... More

We spent our holidays for the 9th time in "El Tranco del Mar". The apartment is very clean and comfortable. We usually came twice per year in the lower season (May and December) when Almunecar is not so crowded and the weather is still great. Due to the fact that our family is growing we have unfortunately to look for... More

But with the fabulous location so close to the beach we had lunch in the apartment , with the veranda doors open over looking a lovely little street... More

We enjoyed 2 nights in el tranco del mar and loved our stay. The apartment we had was spotlessly clean and with 2 sets of French doors to open was bright and airy. The kitchen was well equipped and made it easy to cook meals. There was a washing machine for laundry and a clothesline on the balcony off the... More

El tranco del mar is a recently constructed property that looks like it has always been there in the quaint old town of Almunecar. The apartments are not huge but they are spacious and well appointed with air-conditioning and heat as required, free wifi and kitchenettes. The kitchen is hardly needed because you are only steps from some of Almunecar's... More

“If you want morning sun, ask for a room with view to the west (towards Los Pinos). If you prefer evening sun, ask for a room with views to the east (towards the Old Town). Higher floors have better view.”
