TOWELS

PLAIN towels for inside & PATTERNED towels for Pool area.

SUN-CREAM & SELF-TAN

Due to having lost many towels & sheets that have been ruined with sun-cream, we ask our guests not to use P20 (or similar) sun-cream as this stains them and it is difficult to remove – if indeed you can remove it at all.

If stains cannot be removed you will be charged for new towels/bedding.
▪ A full set of new towels costs in the region of €40 per bedroom.
▪ A full set of bedding for the twin beds will be in the region of €100, king-size €75.

We include a complimentary 15 kWh per day.
Consumption over this must be paid for before departure, or will be deducted from your deposit.

This allows approximately 5-6 hours per day usage depending on the thermostat setting.
At 22c it will use 2 kW per hour – at anything lower it uses 3 kW per hour.

Please do not set the aircon BELOW 22c. It is not necessary.
It will not cool the air any more and just uses more electricity from your allowance.
It is also possible that it could freeze the compressor and damage the aircon – in which case you will be charged for any necessary repairs.
A new compressor costs approximately €1000.

POOL RULES
Pool opening times 9.00am – 9.00pm.
Wristbands must be worn in the pool and gardens area.
Guests must shower before entering the pool.
No glass around pool area – please use plastic glasses & plates provided.
All children under 14 must have a parent with them at all times around the pool area.
No jumping or diving into the pool.
Blow-up lilos are NOT permitted in the pool – although arm bands and floaties are allowed.

We recommend all our guests to wait 20-30 mins after you have applied sunscreen before entering the pool. This allows the oil to absorb into your skin and will clog the pool filters less. It will also give you better protection from damaging your skin.

It is not permitted to wear clothing in the pool although specialist swimwear for toddlers and kids is permitted.

Please only use the pool towels round the pool – do not take the bath towels outside.

We have 2 garden chairs and 2 sunbeds for us round the pool.
These must NOT be left out overnight and should be brought back to the apartment.

SUN-CREAM & SELF-TAN

Due to having lost many towels & sheets that have been ruined with sun-cream, we ask our guests not to use P20 (or similar) as this stains them and it is difficult to remove – if indeed you can remove it at all.

If stains cannot be removed you will be charged for new towels/bedding.
▪ A full set of new towels costs in the region of €40 per bedroom.
▪ A full set of bedding for the twin beds will be in the region of €100, king-size €75.

There is 1 garden chair, 2 sun loungers and a large cotton blanket for use round the pool.

You are welcome to take the chairs to the beach – but please do not use the blanket on the sand.

There is also a parasol to take to the beach.

The whole resort is wheelchair friendly with ramps to all entrance doors and lifts – including the club house.

Whilst the apartment is not adapted for disabled use, there is:
▪ Wheelchair access from the car park and main entrance via the lift to the 1st floor
▪ A large walk in shower with access for the less nimble
▪ Smooth, flat floors throughout – providing good access to the balcony

Note: Whilst the external door will allow access for wheelchairs or mobility scooters, the internal doors are only standard width.

Toilets and washbasins are positioned at standard height

There is 1 reserved space in the underground car park – you will be given the remote control for the garage door and key for the personal entry door at the bottom of the staircase.

There is also additional off-street parking available.

RUBBISH

Do not place rubbish bags on the marble floor in the apartment – any leakages stain and damage the marble.
Do not leave rubbish bags outside the front door, please dispose of them immediately in the recycling bins.

RECYCLING

There are recycling bins all around the complex.
The bins are labelled General Waste, Glass, Plastic and Paper.
The nearest to Block 49 are about 50 meters to both the left and right of the block.

GAS

The gas shut off valve is immediately below the boiler in the kitchen.

Mains Gas is installed in the apartment which fires the combi boiler for central heating and hot water – which is on immediately supply. There is no hot water tank.

ELECTRICITY

The electricity shut off is in the main control box behind the front door.

In Spain, unlike the UK, you have a regulated supply, which in the apartment is 5.7 kW.
So – take care with how many electrical items you have on.
If you have the oven and all 4 rings on and then turn the kettle on – the circuit will trip!

If this happens, turn something off and the open the electricity fuse box behind the front door and look at the circuit breakers. It should be obvious which one has tripped, as it will be in the opposite direction from all the others.

WATER

The main water shut off is in the kitchen – high on the wall to the left of the arch as you look at it from inside the kitchen.

Each bathroom has it’s own shut off taps – again high on the wall behind the doors.

The quality of the tap water is Spain has improved dramatically over recent years and is safe for cooking and drinking. However, it is fairly hard and has chemicals added, much as in the UK, and may not be to your taste.

You will find that bottled water in the supermarkets is extremely cheap – about €0.70 for a big 6 litre bottle. Most Spanish people prefer to drink this than the tap water – especially in the summer when the water often comes out of the cold tap extremely warm due to the fact that pipes are often only buried a few feet underground.

INSTRUCTION MANUALS

Instruction manuals are provided for all appliances – these can be found in the drawer under the cooker. Although some are in Spanish, they have suitable pictures to help you and have translations if appropriate.
