My husband, 2 teenage sons and I have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday at your apartment in Costalita. The view, beautiful surroundings and peace were exactly what was shown in the picture. We loved the frog chorus at night and the sound of the sea. There was initial disappointment that the pool in the main picture was not for our use, but we soon got used to the lovely pool we had as well as great access to the beach. We were impressed that there were lifeguards both at the pool and on the beach. The apartment served all our needs. The sea breeze meant we only used air con at night to block out night time noise. Our only suggestion to make this a 5 star rating is to upgrade the beds. For teenagers the single beds were very narrow and we found the double bed to be extremely hard. It was only on the last day that we realised the sofa is in fact a pull out bed! But otherwise a great haven from which to explore the surrounding coastline and mountains. We have returned to England so very relaxed thanks to your lovely place.Thank you very much and mucho gracias

Apartment had wifi and all the UK channels which was ideal for a lazy day. Accommodation had everything you could need, was as per the website 'home away from home'. Beach was across the road and marina, which has lively restaurants and bars was five minute walk. View from apartment is of mountains opposed to pool/sea but as a result you have the setting sun from 5pm, so lovely for an evening on the veranda. We hired a car as we planned on travelling about and distance from airport, but could have easily holidayed without as everything on your door step (even a local fish+chip shop). The area itself is not commercial when compared to Fuengirola etc., and that it my opinion adds to the beauty of it. We went sea fishing for a day, with tour provided by local guy in the marina (no big fishes on the day, plenty of mackerel so the boys enjoyed). The weeks we travelled included first week of July which resulted in us being present for the Sabinilis and Estepona festivals. Estepona is 10 min drive, whereas Sabinilis is 10 min walk on the prom. Would I return to same resort and same apartment? Definitely! Kudos to Greig for a well organised holiday (our first time using this website). Also, deposit refunded as advertised, all in all a very professional service. Regards, holidayers from West coast of Ireland.
