About Lil MacGovs
We bought our holiday home in Banus for ourselves and our family. We love the weather and the great beaches along the coast from Marbella to Puerto Banus and spend most of our time there on the beach stopping off for a cool drink or meal at the centro plaza adjacent to our apartment. We love to eat out at nearby Benhavis in the mountains, Orange Square in Marbella or in the famous La Sala beside us simply to view the style and glamour of Banus. We live in Dublin so time spent in the glorious sunshine of southern Spain is just blissful. It's our home from home with all of our home comforts with wifi and the TV soaps!,
Why Lil MacGovs chose Marbella
We knew that the apartment and the area had something for all the family. Now the children go on holidays there with their own friends and still find new things to do and great places to eat and drink in with the nightlife just to their taste. We like the mix of the bustle of the port the quieter village feel of Andalucian nightlife. Great for golf for the players while the non golfer stay behind on the loungers by the pool.
What makes this Apartment unique
We love the location of the apartment. With our own Centro Plaza just a few steps away we have our best restaurants, bars, great supermarket with such fresh produce that eating in is such a pleasure on our patio. The apartment offers great privacy with each bedroom with its own en suite and located over two floors. Our swimming pool is just outside our front door which makes it easy to hop in and out for chilled drinks

Stylish Apartment in great location
The apartment was light and airy with Terraces off every room. The dolce gusto coffee machine was a lovely bonus as was the Apple TV which my sons made use of.
The location is great with a 10-15 minute walk to the marina as well as lots of bars and restaurants near by. The two supermarkets were within a 5 minute walk so no need for a car.
Lillian arranged a taxi to/from the airport provided by Karl and his wife who we can highly recommend (cold beer in the car was very welcome when we arrived)
We loved the Pizza Cafe just over the road and the View Bar in the shopping precinct near the supermarket which had gorgeous views, friendly atmosphere and a pool table which my lads used.
We took a taxi to Marbella old town which is lovely and you are really spoilt for shopping in Puerto Banus with designer stores as well as high street shops like Zara & Massimo Dutti.
The communication with Lillian was excellent.
Had a lovely weeks stay and I would highly recommend the apartment
Thank you for your very kind comments and I’m delighted that you and the family enjoyed your holiday with us
Apartment looks better in real life so spacious, clean and has everything you need
Really modern and decorated lovely
We cooked indoors and used all facilities all worked well and did the job
Easily fit 4 people comfortably and one more would have been fine too
Pools were clean and quiet also a good temperature
Apartment was far away enough from harbour commotion but close enough for a stroll or short taxi journey
24/7 security and keys for every door and gate which makes you feel secure
Lil replied within minutes to any questions I had I would definitely stay again thank you
Thanks Natasha for your very kind comments and delighted you enjoyed your stay
Great apartment and location
Ideal location, and great apartment would highly recommend.
Thanks Jake and I’m delighted that you had a great holiday
Excellent apartment in puerto banus
The apartment itself is contemporary and spacious. The beds are comfortable and each bedroom is equipped with an en-suite. Kitchen is designed to a high spec.
The location is perfect - a short walk to the port by day or a €6 Taxi by night. In addition you will find cafes, supermarket and pharmacy within 5 minute walk of the apartment.
The apartment is secure and located within a community with a 24hr security guard too.
The only fault we could possibly pick out from our trip is that the cleanliness of the apartment is not quite up to scratch. There was not enough cutlery for 4 of us to use (a problem that was quickly rectified by Julie the apartment manager) and there was some dust collecting under the beds and sofas. The apartment has such potential and so long as this was dealt with, I am certain we would be returning and awarding 5 stars.
Communication with the owner Lillian was excellent and she even was kind enough to post the keys to our home address which saved a lot of hassle at the other end arriving late at night.
All in all a really great apartment, which is located perfectly and is modern, perfect for families or groups of friends looking to enjoy Puerto Banus like we were. Thank you for having us!
Thanks for your very kind review and delighted you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. As the kitchen and bathrooms are brand new and renovations just complete Julie is aware that some dust can re-appear for a short time. You should have let her know and she would have dealt with it straight away with little effort.
Delighted your holiday was a success.
Lovely, well equipped apartment - great for 4
We have just come back from a great 10 day break here. The apartment is really lovely, fully equipped with all the household bits you need, and with a big balcony for lounging on sofas or eating dinner round the table when you have had enough of the pools. This is about a 15 minute walk from the main marina, although perhaps 5 mins longer walking back because of the hill, but it's a good walk with plenty of bar 'pit stops' on the way. The resort itself is fantastic - great to see how the other half lives! But it's not all completely over the top in terms of expense. There are some great restaurants, sky bars, and the boat trip to Marbella is well worth the money - a memorable experience. We also drove to Benahavis and swam in the river/gorge, visited San Pedro which is a small but lively coastal resort, and drove to Gibraltar which was about an hour away (although google the parking options first!).
All in all, a great break, and the apartment is exactly what we hoped for. We did not have any trouble or issues there at all - it all went like clockwork, thanks to Lillian.
The resort of Puerto Banus is the most glamorous location on the Costa del Sol and is suitable for both families and groups. The luxury duplex apartment is situated perfectly opposite the Centro Plaza which hosts the famous weekly market as well as having many fashionable bars, restaurants and shops. The famous port and beach is but a five minute walk away which makes the apartment ideal for those who do not wish to drive. For those who like to visit the Casino, the famous one in Banus is but a stroll away. Designer shops, boutiques and the large Department Store, El Corte Ingles is but five minutes away. If however, you wish to experience the quieter offerings of the area, you can try dining in the fabulous village of Benhavis or the quaint town of San Pedro just a few kilometres away. Likewise, take a drive through the Andalucian villages that are just a short distance away to sample more of a local flavour of the area.
Golf: This property is located at the entrance to the Golf Valley. Las Brisas, Aloha, La Quinta and Los Naranjos are all within a 3/5 minute drive. Information regarding these or other courses, green fees, etc., are available from owner. Senorio de Aloha is the ideal location for those who wish to enjoy the best golf facilities by day, while relaxing and enjoying the night-life of Puerto Banus.
