We stayed 5 days from Monday June 19th to Friday 23rd,, and the owner always responded promptly with our enquiries prior to our arrival. We were permitted to arrive early as our flight arrived early, and late leaving, again due to late flight which was much appreciated. The pool garden and pool were only 50 steps away (I counted!) so going back and forth to apartment was easy. The gardens are beautifully maintained by Antonio and the pool area had bins, showers and toilets. Plenty sun loungers (although few could do with replacing now) & static parasols, but the shrubs & trees gave you plenty shade but with plenty of sun too. The water itself was warm and the pool never busy. Our apartment had a small garden with sun terrace, but we only ever sat on the terrace in the late evening. Few good British tv channels if you wanted to watch tv. Only two suggestions we would comment on is there are two different wifi instructions in the apartment, one by front door, and other by back door. We used one near back door as didn't realise there was another. This one didn't connect. Took us couple of days to realise there was another wifi code, after that we were okay. Couple cheap plastic bins in bathrooms would be handy and a hairdryer. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils but be prepared to shop for essentials like toilet rolls, milk, coffee etc. We will come again when we need a break to re charge our batteries!

It is a lovely, spacious and spotlessly clean apartment with stunning views over the beach and the town. It easily fits 5 guests and I was one of the 5 ladies on a short break staying at the penthouse. It is wonderfully decorated and has two balconies. The main balcony on the ground floor is simply amazing offering a lot of space to relax and enjoy the stunning views. The apartment is within 2 minute walk to the beach, shops and restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk from the old town of Marbella where we had a lovely dining experience in the Orange Tree. It is a great location being right in the centre of everything in Marbella. We had access to the nice and clean swimming pool located in the apartment block and there is an outdoor gym right next to the apartments. It took us 10 minutes to get to Puerto Banus in a taxi. Alternatively the pier with boats going to Puerto Banus is only a 7 minute walk from the apartment. I highly recommend the apartment for both families and couples as it offers everything you may wish to have on a holiday. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We had an amazing time at the apartment and would like to go back again soon.
