Perfect for our requirements, everything we needed for a relaxing stay.

  • 4 of 5

Delightful ground floor apartment within walking distance of the beach and village where there was a good variety of places to eat and water sports available on the beach. Spacious, clean and homely apartment with air conditioning which was much needed during our stay. A great welcome from Elina and no complaints at all. Thank you, Elina.

Our only disappointment was that the use of the pool was 7 euros per person per day, even if you just wanted to go for a quick swim, plus 3 euros each per day for a sun bed, and no half day rate.

Owner's Response: I am very pleased to receive this review. It is very good to know that my renters were happy with my apartment and that they enjoyed their stay in La Herradura. We don't have a community swimming pool unfortunately, so the pool in Las Palomas urbanization is available, but the cost for a day, including all the services, showers, changing rooms etc. is 7 euros a full day. Thank you Dave and Sue for your review, it is really appreciated. Welcome back any time.

Refined elegance

  • 5 of 5

Dealing with Elina was a delight! She was so responsive and helpful. The town of La Herradura was charming and easy to navigate. I loved the daily market with exceptional fish and meats, fruits and vegetables and the bakery across the street. The urbanization of Las Palomas was simply grand with its park like setting providing a tranquil oasis. The apartment itself was imbued with a refined elegance not often found in a beach community... it was truly a home!

Well furnished apartment in interesting area

  • 4 of 5

The 'Costa Tropical' wasn't an area of Spain I was familiar with, but is well worth a visit. The apartment is a short drive from the town and beach at La Herradura, and not far from the larger towns of Nerja and Alumnecar, offering more shops and a choice of restaurants. Granada is only an hour or so away, although we found enough to do nearer home. Elina met us nearby, showed us to the apartment and made sure everything was ok. Beautifully clean, well equipped kitchen (including microwave, dishwasher and teapot); two bathrooms and sofa bed, so might suit family or two couples sharing.

Visits to Frigliana, Andalucian horse show at bullring and restaurant La Puente at Nerja are recommended. Hoping to return in October.

Owner's Response: I am pleased to receive this excellent review. I agree that La Herradura is a great place to spend a holiday on the Costa Tropical. It is close to Nerja, Almunecar, and the Maro caves. A little further away but easily accessed by a new, beautifulyl scenic motorway are the Alpujarras with pretty whitewashed villages, Granada and the Lecrin Valley. I am delighted that my clients find my apartment a comfortable, well-equipped place to spend their holidays.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A very warm greeting from Elenna on our arrival and was shown around the apartment. The apartment was very nicely furnished and decorated with great taste and was fitted with everything one needed. The gardens were well kept and the lawns manicured. Parking was not difficult and it was very peaceful and quiet.. La Herradurra was very spanish with very good beaches and eating places. We had a very nice relaxing holiday, Thank you Elenna.

For great comfort and wonderful taste

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment. We had a

fantastic week surrounded by beautiful taste. As we went to a wedding

in Nerja it was ideally situated between Nerja and Almuneca.

a week in the paradise apartment

  • 5 of 5

The stay in the apartment was really enjoyable.

The rooms are arranged with very subtile taste, spacious, and bright . You could find here every necessary comfort and cosiness far exceeding traveler's minimum, offered by the hotels.

The blooming flowers and birds singing over the window created relaxing atmosphere.

The car is necessary for excellent sightseeing both short distance to Nerja, Almunecar and further to Malaga and Siera Nevada. The parking place was always available.

With the highest reccommendations

La Herradura is a uniquely unspoiled Spanish resort situated in the heart of the Costa Tropical between Almunecar and Nerja. Herradura means 'horseshoe' named after the beautiful crescent-shaped bay on which it is located. It has a long sand and shingle beach with many nearby sandy coves sheltered by cliffs and inlets. Many activities are available mostly associated with the seaside. They include scuba diving, wind surfing, parasailing, sailing, water skiing, horse riding, golf, hiking and mountain biking.

The village has an excellent range of restaurants and bars, good nightlife, entertainment and fiestas. There are some fascinating trips to nearby towns such as the Nerja caves, Salobrena, historical Granada and the Alhambra, the Sierra Nevadas and Alpujarras Mountains.
