The house is homely, we found everything we needed, the television and wifi worked well, the pool is clean and has great views, the Casita was an added bonus, the seating areas and BBQ are so relaxing and the lake and mountain view is amazing. Everyone was really friendly and helpful (thank you John, Tony, Gordon and Carolyn - good team) Fantastic family holiday - thank you. Please can we come again next year?!

It was great to be there, the view to the lake, the mountains and the see is unforgettable. The rooms and there furniture are very stylish and comfortable. We liked very much the 3 terraces and also the short distance to the pool, because in the afternoon it can be very hot behind the house and at the pool it’s always a little windy and therefore less hot. Most of the times there are only a few people at the pool and it's a good area for relaxing. Cerros del Lago is a very quiet place beyond the hustle of Puerto Banus. The house is well equipped with everything that's necessary with one exception: There’s only one real sunbed at the house. For 4 persons – as we were – it’s not enough.

The apartment is spacious and clean and offers all the facilities for a comfortable stay. The airconditioning works very well throughout the apartment which is good for having a good sleep even with very hot days. The balcony is really great with a fantastic view of the golf courses, mountains and the sea. The balcony has sun in the morning and shade in the evening. The swimming pool area is just a 2 minutes walk from the apartment. It is a nice pool with sun beds and parasols and (again) a great view to the mountains. As said we were very satisfied and would definitely recommend it to others. The price quality ratio is really very good.
