You live on the beach that is always clear, smell beautiful grilled fish all day long from restaurants near you, has a lot of places to take a drink and relax. Appartment is very comfortable and clear. Owner is extremely welcome and helped us at everything we needed. For sure we are going to go back there next years.

                                                                                          We spent a wonderful week at Isabela Beach. The apartment itself had been newly furnished and decorated in bright colours and was fully equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Although there is no balcony, the floor length windows open fully to allow the sun into the living room. This room, and the main bedroom, have beautiful views of the beach, sea and sky (bedroom also has blackout blinds). We didn't use either of the other rooms but both were nicely decorated and had windows to the rear. The beach, and an outdoor gym, are a minute's walk away and there are miles of promenade for walking, jogging, cycling or just enjoying the numerous bars and seafood restaurants that line the beach. Isabela was friendly and welcoming and gave us advice on local places to visit etc. A good lunch option is Bar Zapata right beside the flat - it does a €7 menú del día (3 courses, bread and a drink) and Viva Maria, 5 minutes away, is great for tapas. There are also supermarkets and a local market within a few minutes walk from the apartment. The El Palo area of Malaga has everything needed for a relaxing beach holiday, but with the advantage of being a 20 minute bus ride from Malaga centre, which is packed with interesting events, exhibitions, historical monuments and has great nightlife and eating options. A stay at Isabela Beach gives you the best of both worlds and I would not hesitate to recommend.
