Good place but bad check in
The apartment is located in a gated community with beautiful garden, very close to the sea beach. There is a grocery store just 2 blocks away. The description of the apartment was accurate (except we were unable to use the kitchen stove- something went wrong with it) and we enjoyed staying there, but the check in was stressful. The apartment owner Mary asked us to arrive before 9 PM, and this added a lot of pressure to our journey from Madrid to Marbella: we took the afternoon train from Madrid, then spent time for car renting at Malaga and barely comply with the time constrains set by the owner. I called our host Fabio several times when we were on the way. We arrived at 9 PM, found a deserted street, and after waiting for more than 30 minutes started looking for a hotel to stay at night. Finally, Fabio arrived and let us in. Parking space in the underground garage was too small for the car that we rented. Fabio helped us to park the car and then left. We were inside the garage when the automatic door started to close and we ended up in complete darkness not knowing how to switch the light or re-open the garage door. Cellphone did not work in the garage, and it took us a while to get out. The lady who came with Fabio quickly showed me the apartment and unlocked the door, but neither she nor Fabio waited till we got inside the apartment with the luggage. When were out of garage it was dark. All houses looked the same, and it took us a long time to find the apartment.
The communication with Fabio was not easy because of the language barrier, but he answered the phone and when we called him the next day he came over to help us. The apartment owner – Mary - did not answer my calls/texting when I was unable to reach Fabio.
Good location but needs refurbishment
For the money its OK, but let down with the general condition of the kitchen and bathrooms which were clean but worn out.The TV was very old and the remote was tempermental. Good secure off road parking.
Great location near the beach
Large, roomy, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with living room. 150 metres to beach restaurants and supermarket. Lounge chairs should be added to the pool area and better bathroom supplies could have been provided.
It was a pleasure having you in our apartment. You are welcome to come back any time.

Très bon appartement avec piscine proche de la mer, on peut y aller à pieds. La résidence est très belle, très fleuri et au mois de mai, très calme . Je recommande cet appartement
Oasis a Orillas del Mar
La ubicación de Alvarito es fantástica! Primera línea de playa y una infraestructura bastante bien mantenida. Muy cerca de Marbella centro, ideal para descansar teniendo todas las maravillas de Marbella a disposición.
El piso como tal, bastante bien en general. Habitaciones con buen espacio, camas cómodas y mobiliario funcional.
Echamos en falta la WiFi. Aunque vino bien para desconectarnos del mundo. Conseguimos hormigas, una molestia mínima pero existente. Necesitamos usar el sofá cama pero no había ropa de cama disponible. El encargado ofreció traer un set pero nunca llegó. También nos sorprendió un poco que solo había un (1) rollito de papel de higiénico. Nos tocó pasar por el super para comprar un poco mas de tan necesario suministro.
Mas allá de estos detalles, muy contentos con la estadía.
De woning is zeer prettig met een prachtig uitzicht op zee en palmbomen. Een mooie gemeenschappelijke tuin rondom en slechts twee minuten lopen naar het strand alwaar heerlijke restaurantjes op u wachten.
Take the road N 340 from Malaga Airport, direction to Marbella, take exit "El Rosario" before Costa del Sol Hospital, do U-turn and take exit opposite pizzeria Papa Luigi with the shape of a castle. Follow the street that goes to the beach (supermarket Andasol in the corner, at the entrance of this street). Alvarito Playa is a complex on your right hand side, salmon colour after white complex.
