Les and Maureen Morton purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Les and Maureen Morton chose Carib Playa
We looked for a long time for a property on the beach in this quiet area near Marbella with the best beaches in the Costa del Sol. The apartment is superbly located next to the sand dunes of the national park with sea views.It is peaceful even in high season. It is only 30 minutes from Malaga airport and is an oasis of tranquility in the concrete of the Costa del Sol. It is also within walking distance on the beach, bars, restaurants and shops which is important to us as we do not like to drive a lot on holiday!
What makes this Apartment unique
The property has a state of the art interior with marble floors, granite worktops and high quality fixtures and fittings. The terrace furniture is the best you can buy from Kettal and Dedon. It is very unusual to find a day bed and sofas of this quality in a rental. Super fast WIFI and internet Tv with all channels Boardwalk into Cabopino Port makes it easy for using a pushchair and a very scenic stroll. Andy's beach near Cabopino has water sports, sunbeds and restaurants There is a gas BBQ for ease of catering and a fully equipped kitchen as we like to cook. There are 2 fridge freezers to make catering easy . We provide lots of games, books and DVDs as we like to relax this way on holiday. It is unusual in having 3 terraces and 2 of them have stunning views of the trees of the national park and the sea.

The most awful and disgusting stay ever
We have been deeply shocked upon arrival as what we have seen has been neither expected nor advertised. The apartment is in a terrible condition: musty smell is everywhere, dirt on all surfaces which are ALL not cleaned, dirty linen and blankets left, greasy remote controls, rusty lamp on the terrace with a spiderweb, sun umbrellas are broken, only few towels available and they are all very old and washed, the air-conditioning is chargeable and when switched on provides too much noise, the kitchen requires washing and washing... The general impression is that you do not want to touch anything as there is a layer of dirt and dust everywhere ...
The apartment does not meet any chech-in and/or applicable requirements. It is old-fashioned and requires complete renovation. All furniture shall be dumped and replaced. The photos in the advertising does not reflect its current condition.
In response to our claim, we have been told by the owner that the apartment is of “a very high standard” and the quality of a cleaning team that has prepared the apartment for us is beyond all doubts. Thereafter, the owner has ceased all communications.
We have bought new bedding and towels for all us and have been cleaning the premises for 3 days.
Follow our advice and never rent this apartment as your vacation shall be completely spoiled.
We had a wonderful stay. Pool was big. Wifi fantastic. Lots of restaurantes with nice food nearby.
Great property for a family like us with 3 teenage kids. Wifi was great too! Big pool.
Fabulous! Beautiful apartment in a great location.
The apartment was stunning with three roof terraces so you always had the sun or the shade, whichever you prefer. Plenty of space for us all, very well equipped and we loved barbecuing up on one of the terraces! The pool in the complex was fantastic with space to swim lengths and general enjoy the beautiful garden surroundings. The beach was a short stroll away and is a lovely stretch of sandy beach for all ages to enjoy. Great restaurants walking distance from the apartment. Overall we couldn't recommend this enough and can't wait to be back!
Glad you had a good time!
Perfect location for a family holiday
The penthouse was as described. It had a welcoming feel, was spacious, very well equipped and in good order. The layout was just right for our needs and we loved having the upper floor and three terraces, so that we could be together as a family but also get privacy when needed. The pool area is set in lovely gardens and had separate children's pool ...all just a short walk away. The beaches are lovely and easily reached, with friendly local beach restaurants. No need to go any further, although there is much of interest nearby. I would certainly recommend this penthouse for any family holiday and would go back.
The owners were very efficient and pleasant to deal with.
We are glad everyone had a great holiday and appreciated the space and closeness to the beach .We would be delighted to welcome them back ..
We were really pleased with the apartment, it was modern, very clean, well equipt. The location was good, within walking distance of the beach, local bars & restaurants.
Three generations stayed at the apartments, and all thought the apartment was lovely and well situated.
Unfortunately, the weather in May was not suitable for use of the swimming pool, (too cool this year) however, the pool was very clean and looked very inviting.
We would definitely consider staying again.
We are delighted Sue and family had a good time and would be very happy to welcome her back
Les and Maureen
We were really pleased with the apartment as it was comfortable, clean, well equipped and in an excellent location. The pool was large and child friendly (with life guard) and the grounds were beautiful. Being able to walk to the beach and local bars and restaurants was a real plus. We would definitely consider staying here again and would recommend it to our friends. Having access to WiFi was also a bonus as we had four teenagers in our party!
We are delighted that Alex had a good time and would be glad to welcome them back !
Beautiful sandy beaches on this stretch of coastline which is unusual for most of the Costa del Sol. A 5 minute stroll through the dunes takes you onto the beach at Carib Playa. Note that a section of this beach is so clean it attracts Naturists. Here the sand is real sand, totally unlike the grit/stones you find along so much of this coast.
Cabopino Port is a short walk where there is an organised beach area with beach side bars, sun loungers and water sports. there is also a Marina with beautiful yachts and many bars and restaurants
Fly to Malaga or Gibraltar. Hire cars are cheap in Spain and readily available at all airports. We provide numbers for taxi/mini buses to pick you up from the airport and you do not need a car for this property.
5 minutes walk to beach 15 minutes walk to shops and restaurants
10 minutes drive to Marbella.
The area surrounding the penthouse is residential. It is literally the last property before the protected sand dunes, which are now an official Andalucian National park.
There are 5 restaurants within a 10 minute walk of the penthouse. A 15 minute walk through the National Park brings you to the beautiful port of Cabopino. Here you will find beach bars, water sport activities, restaurants serving food from many different parts of the world, Chinese, Italian, Indian, Spanish
The port is a joy to stroll around, as it is full of large beautiful motorboats and the occasional yacht. On the wide sandy beaches in the main season there are lifeguards to watch the activities. Sunbed and umbrella hire is available. At Andy's beach, you can persue most watersports, sailing, windsurfing, parascending, kite surfing, paddle boats, dolphin watching and skin diving. Plenty to do for all the family.
All in all this luxurious penthouse is superbly located to give you a relaxing, yet active holiday for all members of the family.
Most recent reviews say, "We have done quite a few owners direct holidays and we found this was the best so far. The appartment is very spacious and clean. The beaches are near to the appartment, even thought I felt a trifle over dressed on one of them! The resturants in the area were very helpful and friendly. We had a lovely holiday and one day we may even return for second helpings."
"We have just returned from a week at the penthouse apartment and we were very happy indeed with the apartment. It really was a home from home. Everything we needed was there, the daybed was my particular favourite for a few minutes peace and quiet! The children loved the pool area (as did my daugher and son-in-law) and quickly made friends with some of the children who live there. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
