Lots of space, clean and modern

Posted Nov 7, 2016
Cons: More toilet paper and towels for the pool nearby and not at the office which is far away.
Location: Great location to a nearby strip plaza with grocery store and restaurants etc.
After staying at a poor all inclusive hotel near Malaga this was like paradise. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and modern. The kitchen was well stocked and it had a good size terrace too. The wifi was excellent. The little issue we had was that we ran out of toilet paper and the office was so far away. The pool area was lovely. We would definitely recommend this place.

Lovely location, very quite and close to motorway

Posted Oct 31, 2016
It is way cheaper than a 4 star and offers similar luxury. I am so impressed with the value of this I will consider owning an apartment. It is will designed and laid out. Very practical and yet still modern and luxurious. It is home away from home and my family and I will surely be back.

All quiet & relaxing but ruined by building work

Posted Oct 25, 2016
Pros: Nice ground floor room, clean and well maintained.
Cons: Resort failed to provide any prior warning (night before or even on the day) that they would be performing building work in the adjacent connected apartment. Unbearable noise reverberating through walls and floor while builders dug up tile floor next door. We had to complain forcefully before facilities management offered us use of an alternative apartment . Luckily the work only took one day. We should have been warned and offered use of an alternative apartment before the building work started.
Location: Resort is 10-15mins walk from the main Malaga -Arecife highway where there are frequent & good value buses to Estepona, Puerto Banus & Marbella

Major points of stay

Posted Apr 5, 2016
Pros: Excellent two bedroom apartment. Comfortable and fully equipped for up to 4 people.
Cons: Better pillows. Also given this is a stand-alone location without nearby shops, at least coffee and a water should be available for evening arrivals.
Location: Restaurants can be found 10 minutes drive from the complex. The towns of Estepona and Marbella are 15 minutes drive away.
1. This is not a hotel, it is an apartment in what looks like a time-share complex. 2. The apartment was excellent and fully equipped but the following should be noted: a) The two bathrooms are quite small. b) Main bathroom bath/shower is difficult to get in/out so seniors look-out. c) Hot water is limited to capacity of electric tank. d) Not the easiest of places to find. e) Pillows were not comfortable. f) Has its own parking area in communal garage but not the easiest to get in/out. g) There is a fully-equipped kitchen but no coffee or water (other than tap water) available for when you arrive. h) You will need to rent a car since the complex is not walking distance from amenities. 3. The location is not by or close to the seaside.

Very nice apartment: we had a huge living room and balcony. The staff was efficient and un-intrusive.

Immaculate well equipped apartment

Posted Nov 27, 2015
Pros: Very spacious apartment and pool area.
Location: A few minutes drive from the main road for easy access to resorts along coast but few attractions other than golf in immediate area.
Our two bedroom/2 bathroom apartment was spacious and modern with large terrace. There was no bar/restaurant (pool bar during summer season only) but for a self catering holiday it was perfect. 10-15 minute walk to limited number of shops and restaurants but a car is absolutely essential. Large swimming pool (too cold to swim in November!) but no other communal area. There is a golf/country club next door which offers reduced membership and access to restaurant but we were only told about this on our final day, as we checked in after the reception closed (very helpful security guard met us). Welcome pack available on request with all the essentials for late arrival/breakfast. Daily maid service (except Sunday) and exceptionally clean.

Really nice set of apartments. We took the family apartment and the size was perfect for a family of 2+2. Apartment was exactly as described, very clean and modern. Would stay here again if ever holidaying around Costa del Sol. It is a short drive to Estepona, San Pedro, Porto Banus and Marbella.

Beautiful apartments

Posted Sep 15, 2015
We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend. The apartments are beautiful and very well serviced. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make is feel welcome. I agree with the comments that say a car is essentail. We used google maps on our phone to find the apartments without it I think we could have got very lost.

Lovely apartment

Posted Sep 1, 2015
Pros: Gorgeous apartment
Cons: Welcome pack required
Location: Quite remote location, there is a local supermarket about 15 minutes walk away but otherwise would recommend hiring a car.
Absolutely lovely apartment, very modern. However the location is quite remote, would recommend hiring a car. It would of also been helpful to have a welcome pack with local information, tourist attractions and information about the resort such as the kids club, pool and bar info etc. we would recommend Selwo Adventura for a day out with children and the resort offer discounted tickets 11 euros per ticket instead of 24 on the gate!
