Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Atalaya Isdabe - EL PRESIDENTE - YOLANDA

Luxury 1 bedroom ground floor El Presidente rental apartment close to Marbella

Our wonderful air-conditioned/heated ground-floor apartment is located in the centre of the first line of apartments, with direct & close access to the main pool from its extremely large south-facing private terrace (with dining table & sun-loungers) and garden. It is also located close to the pool that is heated throughout the winter.

Recently completely redecorated and refurbished to a very high standard, it is very spacious (100 m²) having a large & comfortable lounge with 2 sofas, dining-table, 42' LCD satellite television, DVD and Hi-Fi. Also leading off from the hall is the lovely bedroom with a very comfortable king-size bed, 32' television & large en-suite bathroom. There is also a well-equipped fully-fitted kitchen including washing-machine, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge-freezer and microwave.

We also have wonderful two and three bedroom apartments available in El Presidente.

Our luxurious and spacious beachside complex has five swimming pools (1 heated throughout the winter), extensive sub-tropical gardens and water gardens, 4 tennis and 2 padel courts, a golf practice area and is within close walking distance of the beach (where there are 3 beach-bar restaurants), shops (including a new ALDI supermarket) and many excellent restaurants.

We have a cot and high chair available.

The complex has 24hr monitored security and a lifeguard during the high season.

There are at least 20 golf courses in the surrounding area, many of which are of an extremely good standard. The complex also has 2 golf practice areas.

Skiing is possible in the Sierra Nevada near to Granada which is about a two hour drive away.

In the surrounding area there are many family oriented activities available including adventure, wild-life and water parks, sea-life centres, dolphin area and water sports centres.

Please contact us for details of our own website which contains a great deal more information and photographs.

Exploring the local area: Marbella is an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. As well as the nearby coastal towns of Puerto Banus, Mijas, San Pedro and Estepona, it is well worth venturing inland to visit the beautiful white-walled towns of Benahavis and Casares. Slightly further afield is Malaga which should not be overlooked as its pedestrianised old quarter has a labyrinth of streets and squares which are great fun to explore, as well as being a very good place to buy shoes at remarkable prices! Also within easy travelling distance are the wonderful cities of Granada, Seville and Cordoba, and of course just along the coast is the island of Gibraltar with its apes, caves and tax-free shopping!

Taxi Transfer and Car Hire:

Please let us know if we can help to arrange your hire car as we use a very good and reasonably priced company that has a collection point just outside of the terminal building at Malaga airport where you will be personally met (therefore avoiding the lengthy queues inside the terminal at the car rental desks and you also only pay for the fuel that you use!).

We can also arrange your taxi transfers to and from the airport with our wonderful local driver who speaks english and charges significantly less than that at the airport.

Tennis Coaching:

We are now able to offer professional on-site tennis coaching with an extremely good and fully qualified LTA coach. Our complex's four tennis and two padel-tennis courts have recently been refurbished to a high standard and are freely available to our guests. Please contact us for more details.

Dear Peter and Sylvia,

Just a quick message to say thankyou for the lovely holiday we had, the apartment was superb, hope to see you next year!

All the Best,

Graham and Judy x



Dear Peter and Sylvia


Just a quick note to let you know that we arrived back safely - to a horrible cold evening and a Heathrow that was teeming with people! 


We had a fabulous time, thank you.  We loved El Presidente and the apartment.  It really felt like home from the moment we walked in.  Both of us were completely frazzled when we arrived, but left refreshed and re-invigorated.


All we want now is to come back!

Look forward to seeing you both again - Soon.


All the best.

Yolanda apartment in El Presidente

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at El Presidente in late September 2008. The ground floor Yolanda apartment was just like a home from home, and it was in a great location just beside the main pool. Peter and Sylvia were very friendly and we took up their restaurant recommendations which were spot on. We would definintely go back for a very relaxing holiday.

Bien mais pas excellent

  • 3 of 5

Nous avons passé 3 semaines en vacances dans cet appartement. Notre impression générale est moyenne, en raison de fausses représentations. Le lit est un lit Queen et non un king...la piscine chauffée, si vous aimez une piscine chauffée à 70 degrés, de plus on nous avait dit qu'il y avait le wifi...il faut aller dehors devant l'appartement des propriétaires afin de pouvoir le capter. Nous avons eu accès au terrain de tennis environ 5 jours après notre arrivée. Au début, nous pouvions capter plus de 100 postes télé, mais après 1 semaine, il ne restait presque plus rien de disponible. Le grille pain a sauté durant notre séjour et jamais remplacé. Nonobstant tout cela, l'appartement est très propre et spacieux, bel environnement, calme et très bien situé. Il vous faudra une voiture pour vous rendre dans les villes avoisinantes.

Owner's Response: Dear Robert, Although we are pleased that you did like our apartment (as also experienced by our other guests), we are very concerned by some of your comments, especially as we do try to avoid any false impressions. We do wish you had chatted to us about them before you left as whenever we spoke to you, you always seemed very happy. With regards to your points, some were outside of our control. For example, with the television stations. During your stay, the whole of southern Spain lost their UK Terrestrial channels as they were switched to a different satellite. Only now, four weeks on are some alternative options being offered to communities like ours on the Coast. As far as the Heated Pool is concerned, the ambient night time temperature was frequently extremely low during your stay. As a consequence one of the heat exchangers broke down and is still being repaired. Once again, this was outside of our control. Indeed because of the cold nights we can have here in winter and the effect this can have on the water temperature of an outdoor pool, we do specifically say that the pool is only heated for part of the winter (and that's when both heat exchangers are operational). As a point of interest, it was decided this week that our Community is now going to use geothermal energy to heat the pool instead and this should be operational in two weeks time. Consequently in future, we should have much greater consistency in achieving a water temperature of 28C. Regarding the Community's Tennis Courts, as we explained to you, these had not been locked in the past. When we found out that this was no longer the case (because non-residents had been making use of them), we obtained a key the next day from the administrator for you to keep and use whenever you wanted. Regarding the Wi-Fi, on our page here we clearly state: "Just a very short distance from the apartment, we have created a wifi area where it is possible to access the internet for free". Regarding the toaster, I have just been to the apartment and it seems to be working perfectly so possibly there is an intermittent fault ! Regarding the bed, it is 152 cms wide which here in Europe is regarded as a king size bed. I do hope that you will accept our apologies for any inconvenience that you might have experienced during your stay here, as we do strive to be as honest as possible with all of our guests and definitely do not wish any false impressions to occur. Peter and Sylvia

Faultless Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a week in Andulucia and have had a wonderful trip. The apartments rented out by Peter and Sylvia are exceptional! The location is stunning and wonderful for a relaxing and romantic get-away from it all time. If you want night-life and shopping, Puerto Banus and Marbella are close by but when you require peace and privacy, then look no further that El Presidente apartments. The accommodation is of superior quality and is equipped with everything you need. We didn't need it but the apartment rental includes air-conditioning and satellite TV. The beach is a two minute walk but the beautifully landscaped complex boasts three swimming pools (one of which is heated) and tennis courts anyway. Due to the amount of apartments built in El Presidente, I cannot imagine that the surrounds would ever get too crowded either.

We unreservedly recommend this accommodation and congratulate the owners on their high standards and very helpful customer service. I hope you will enjoy yourselves as much as we did :) Karen and Alistair

El Presidente Yolanda Apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely and really well maintained with everything you need. The pools in the complex are very nice with a lot to choose from. El Presidente is quiet and relaxing but benefits from being close to a wide range of restaurants within a few minutes walk.

The surrounding areas including Puerto Banus, Marbella and Ronda are well worth a visit and again the location of El Presidente makes it an ideal base for seeing the area.

I will definitely be back!

El Presidente - un parfait appartement

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour à tous, Nous sommes partis chez Peter et Sylvia début septembre, et nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour. Tout d'abord, ces personnes sont des gens charmants et très accueillants. Concernant l'appartement et la résidence, rien à redire, tout était parfait! La résidence était magnifique avec ses 5 piscines et ses allées arborées! Les piscines sont propres et la résidence très bien entretenue (des jardinier étaient là tout les jours). L'appartement était vraiment génial! Très bien décoré, bien équipé, propre… et au bout du petit jardin privatif un accès à la plus grande piscine de la résidence! Je vous recommande donc cette location qui est vraiment superbe!

El Presidente, where we also live, is a wonderful beach-side complex situated on the original Marbella 'Golden Mile' and generally regarded as one of the best complexes on the coast.

We are ideally located away from the turmoil of Puerto Banus and yet it is just an easy five-minute drive along the coast road that separates us. Indeed it would be impossible to find a more spacious and luxurious complex at this price anywhere along the coast and certainly not in Puerto Banus or Marbella where they are much more compactly built.

We are also ideally placed to access the numerous nearby leisure and sporting facilities and to visit the nearby coastal towns of Marbella, San Pedro and Estepona, and the inland towns of Ronda, Casares and Benahavis (just ten minutes away and with excellent restaurants!) as well as the wonderful cities of Granada, Seville and Cordoba.

Within a short walking distance from the apartment is the beach and three beach bar restaurants as well as shops, bars, banks and many excellent restaurants.

Other Activities: We can offer professional coaching on our tennis courts

Golf: As well as having our own on-site golf practice areas, we are just five minutes from the following clubs: El Paraiso, Guadalmina, Atalaya and Flamingoes Golf; 10 minutes from Marbella Club, Monte Mayor, La Dama de Noche, Las Brisas, Aloha, Los Naranjos, La Quinta and Estepona; and thirty minutes from Valderama and San Roque. Please contact us for details of green fees and for booking.

There is also a DVD player available, with satellite televisions in both the lounge and main bedroom. Very good quality bed linen and towels for the bathroom are provided.
