It actually looks and feels more like you're in the tropics than Spain! The apartment sits in a nice complex with three well maintained pools and a friendly, inexpensive pool bar. There's a supermarket a few minutes walk away next to some good restaurants and a lounge bar. The other direction ( left out of the gate ) will take you down to the beach with more shops, restaurants and bars in Riviera Del Sol. There's a lovely walk along a wooden promenade by the sea towards La Cala de Mijas, and delicious fresh seafood to try at one of the numerous 'chiringuitos' restaurants along the way. Nolan and Olga are fantastic hosts and genuinely go out of their way to ensure you have a great holiday. We hope to stay here again and would definitely recommend without hesitation. Perhaps you'd best book it before someone else does! :)) ( although, not the weeks we want to stay please... )
