Make a holiday rental, home, or cottage in Calahonda, Spain your home away from home

Located in the Spanish municipality of Motril in the central part of Granada Province, Calahonda is a touristic bloom that is only just blossoming into a world class resort. This town owes its origins to its port and while its harbour is still a key attraction, Calahonda has so much more to offer the fun-seeking traveller. The usual seaside pastimes are available in this Andalusian town alongside plenty of other activities and there is a lot to see, so visitors need to plan their time wisely. In terms of accommodation, all sizes of groups and purses are taken care of comfortably. There are spacious beachfront apartments with spectacular views and swimming pools and detached villas big enough for a group of seven among many other options.

Things to do on holiday to Calahonda, Spain

A visit to this coastal locale opens the starry-eyed holidaymaker to an abundance of possibilities. Enacting the typical postcard scene of a sunbather zoned out underneath a parasol, sunglasses and layers of sunscreen is understandably the priority for most people who visit Calahonda. And few places in the world offer conditions more suited to this activity (or rather, inactivity) than the beaches of this town. While visitors thus splay themselves and abandon their worldly cares, their children can seek entertainment in the kids’ play area.

When night falls, Granada’s coastline comes alive with a number of bars and beach clubs opening their doors to revellers. Even those who are not dyed in the wool party animals will find themselves joining in the party; mingling and making merry till the wee hours.

Calahonda is dotted with a number of caravan and camping sites, so those who find their holiday incomplete without a tented stay and the smell of bonfire smoke have plenty to look forward to.

On the nearby Velilla Beach visitors will find an 18,000 square-metre theme park that is a haven of unbridled fun for people of all ages.

Coming in from abroad, travellers will likely jet into the Spanish capital Madrid through its Barajas Airport. This airport serves most major international airlines.

It is very clean and well equipped with plenty of towels. The terrace and small garden were a welcome bonus as is the very easy access to the well maintained pool area. During our stay it was very quiet on the complex in the evenings which made it even more relaxing to sit out with a glass of wine after dinner. The apartment was very secure with a safe and window/door shutters. The only thing we found missing was air conditioning, although the ceiling and free standing fans worked well, but we knew this before booking. Access to the local supermarkets was convenient and there are numerous restaurants and a couple of bars within a 10 minute walk in El Zoco, The Strip and Dona Lola. (our favourites are The Restaurant, Da Vinci's' and Bogarts). Overall this a great apartment and we will have no hesitation in booking it again.

                                                                                                      Nos alojamos en este apartamento durante 7 noches en el mes de Julio 17. He de decir que tanto el propietario como Yolanda fueron encantadores y amables desde el primer momento. Nos pusieron todo tipo de facilidades. Nuestro vuelo salia a ultima hora de la tarde y Denis fue tan amable de dejarnos hacer uso del apartamento hasta la hora de salida hacia el aeropuerto. Sobre el apartamento: Aspectos positivos: La ubicacion es perfecta para acceder a supermercados, farmacia, restaurantes y demas. Un paseo de madera paralelo a la franja de playas te permite caminar hasta Playa Luna - a 15 m. Mas alla uno tiene que caminar o bien por la playa o por detras de las urbanizaciones si quieres llegar hasta la marina de Cabopino. Hay una parada de autobus a 5m que te permite visitar otras zonas cercanas como Marbella o Fuengirola. El apartamento estaba muy limpio, con mobiliario bonito. La cocina pequeña pero dotada de lo necesario para desayunos y comidas sencillas. Esta en una sexta planta y desde alli las vistas a la playa y el mar son fantasticas. El edificio pese a ser muy grande es tranquilo, apenas se oyen ruidos ni voces del resto de los vecinos. Justo debajo del apartamento hay un modesto,pero bien atendido, bar restaurante - Bellavista- muy recomendable para comer o cenar a un precio muy ajustado. Aspectos negativos: El apartamento se oferta como totalmente reformado pero no es cierto. Le han dado una lavado de cara a un apartamento antiguo. Con buen gusto,pero no deja de ser una capa de pintura, muebles restaurados y detalles modernos. Sin embargo la instalacion electrica, fontaneria y demas no lo son. El tener la nevera enchufada en uno de los baños no nos inspiraba mucha confianza. Los desagues necesitan un repaso urgente y una de las bañeras ya nota el paso del tiempo. Sin embargo, Hemos sabido que este apartamento sera proximamente reformado por completo, lo que incluira cambio de cuadro electrico, fontaneria nueva etc, lo que lo hara realmente mas competitivo El edificio tiene una zona de jardin con piscinas que esta bastante bien mantenido, con zonas de sol y sombra para las horas mas calurosas. Sin embargo no hicimos uso de ella ya que hay solo 3 hamacas. Como este es un apartamento de playa seria un detalle contar con la posibilidad de alquiler o uso de unas sillas plegables de playa, para poder usarlas tanto en la playa como en la piscina.
