Overview

About the property

Mi Capricho

A beach lover's dream apartment complex, Mi Capricho is right on the beach in Calahonda, one of the most successful beach front properties in the area. This front line beach complex has four blocks strategically located around large kidney shaped swimming pool.

Situated in the heart of Calahonda with access directly off the main N340 road which links Malaga with the Marbella area of the Costa Del Sol. Shop, restaurants, bars and entertainment are all within walking distance from the resort.

Two large kidney shaped swimming pools are the centre piece of the resort. The resort also has kiddie pool, underground parking for all guests and has a beach front tiki bar in high season subject to license.

Calahonda is popular for its array of shopping, and local markets conveniently located just a walk from the resort. The area is also most famous for its selection of restaurants and evening entertainment.

Mijas Costa: 6 Miles of some of Spain's best beaches running from Fuengirola to Marbella at the heart of the Sunny Costa del Sol. The perfect quiet holiday spot for sun worshipers and golfers alike being well away from the hustle and bustle of the main resorts.

Conditions: Sorry, no groups of single males / females. No smoking. No pets.

Mi Capricho is a quiet family complex with beautiful maintained communal areas and landscaped gardens. A condition of all bookings is that you respect the property and other residents (both permanent residents and other holiday makers) by adhering to the community rules.

Fantastic apartment in stunning garden layout

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at this apartment over Easter for a couple of weeks.

Previous reviews are all accurate - the apartment is great particularly the way you have a private garen opening out to more gardens and all close by the pool and pool bar. It is a fantastic setup.

We were more active than previously having rented a car (Helle Hollis - recommended by Alan) so this review will touch on some of the things we got up to and can recommend outside the compound.

1. Amazon Adventure (ziplining in trees place) - Elvira exit

Just 10 minutes toward Marbella (bus or car) sitting right by the Elvira exit there is a phonemenal zipline place. My 11 and 13 year olds had a blast. There is a bar there for the anyone not participating - these "visitors" pay 2 euro to enter. You get about 3 hours there.

2. Parque Acuatico Mijas

Again just up the road on near side of Fuengarola fantastic water park. We had a 50% off voucher (always take whatever coupons they hand out at airport and keep eyes out for them elsewhere). Thoroughly recommend the place. It was very laid back and the staff were practically invisible.

3. Mijas Pueblo

In the hills overlooking Fuengarola - definitely worth a few hours here. It's a fantastic Spanish village - like Orange Square on steroids. Park in the multistorey car park then go for a wander.

4. Benalmadena Port and Sealife

You can walk around the port - get something to eat , do some shopping, then after go see SeaLife. Buy your tickets online > 1 hour before as they are HALF the price but can take a whole hour to arrive at your inbox. No need to print them out. Just present the phone to the reception.

We also did Torremolinos, Cabopino, Cala Market, Marbella, Fuengarola.

Eating

Our favourite eatery in the area is definitely the Hong Kong restaurant in the Zoco. The manageress there is just such a quality hostess. You can buy pint sized soft drinks for the kids there. Other shoutouts to Da Vincis in Dona Lola, the local Capricho restaurant at the end of the garden, La Luna which is down the boardwalk to the right past King Beach (itself v good for food), plus the 2 places on the rocks past capricho though service can be eccentric. For breakfast try Espresso across the road next to the Mercadona at least once.

Lovely spacious apartment with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Great service from start to finish. The owner was great to deal with and answered all questions promptly and returned the security deposit swiftly. Dora and Teresa were very helpful during our stay at the apartment. The apartment was bright, clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable so we slept well as it was also very quiet at night. The kitchen was fully equipped with full oven, fridge freezer and dishwasher.There was a LCD HD tv with UK channels in the lounge and fast reliable broadband. We stayed in October and the weather was good. The patio led onto a small private garden and the views of the communal gardens, pool and sea were wonderful. The pool bar was open which served snacks and drinks. There is direct access to the boardwalk from the complex which is great to walk along beside the beach and there are some good chiringuitos in both directions. We enjoyed our stay and would return again.

Spacious Apartment in fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a great location in Calhonda. The fabulous pool is is just a few yards from the apartment garden . The beach can be reached through a security gate . Also there is the new walkway where beach bars can be reached. There are lots of bars and restaurants close by. Also Calahonda is a good base if you want to visit other resorts. The apartment was spacious clean and well equipped. Hopefully we will be returning next year.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 16 yr old son and I stayed for 2 weeks in late July and would highly recommend both Mi Capricho and this apartment. The owner was very prompt with booking enquiries, information etc and the property company could not have been more helpful at check-in and during the stay.

We organised additional cleaning mid stay and the service was great, 1 minor issue occurred during our 2 week stay, out of the owners control, this was dealt with very promptly and the owner personally checked with us by visiting.

We will definitely return in future, and would highly recommend for either couples or families, the apartment has 2 good sized bedrooms and comfortable space/seating for 4 inside/outside.

The pictures do not do the location or property justice, you have the most superb views of the beach/sea and are literally 20-30 secs walk to the private beach gate, the pool and pool bar, and right on the boardwalk. Turn left and El Capricho beach bar is 50 meters, and turn right Royal Beach is 5 mins walk, and Luna Beach 10-12mins walk, both great eating options, and of all the accommodation we saw along the boardwalk this complex seemed by far the most spacious, and definitely had the best pool area and gardens.

The facilities in the apartment offer everything you need, good quality furnishings, private parking, secure & private garden/grounds and the added bonus of ground floor so you can pop to the pool/bar/apartment hassle free.

The garden gets the sun from 930am right through till 730-8pm in July so breakfast, late lunches and evenings were enjoyed on the terrace, and a daily walk to the closest supermarket and small selection of shops was no more than 10-12mins (each way).

The pool bar opens at 12 every day but as we enjoyed our drinks on the private terrace we rarely used it, but for those wanting the option it was clean, tidy and service was quick and efficient, and very reasonably priced.

We found the apartment easily, 25-30 mins from the airport, 5 mins drive to La Cala de Mijas, 5 mins drive to Cabapino Marina (you cant walk to either directly on the Boardwalk) 15 mins drive to Mijas Village, 15 mins to Marbella and 20mins to Puerto Banus...and at least half a dozen top quality golf courses within 10-12 mins drive...perfect location for a family enjoying sun, pool, beach and lots of great restaurants!

Thank you Alan & Dora we will definitely return in future.

Lovely Beachfront Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Mi Capricho is a fantastic location in Calahonda. Close to supermarkets, restaurants, beach and public transport.

The apartment is ground floor with direct access to the pool area, the bar and the boardwalk. It also has a small private garden.

It contains everything required for a self catering holiday and is fitted out to a good standard compared to many rental properties. Wifi is free and worked without any problems.

The booking process was straightforward and Alan, the owner, is easy to deal with, informative, and keen to ensure guests have a pleasant stay at his apartment. Teresa who is the contact on arrival could not have been more helpful.

For first time visitors to Calahonda there are lots of good restaurants within easy walking of Mi Capricho and both Fuengirola and Marbella are a 30 minute bus ride away.

Having visited Calahinda on numerous occasions I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for beachside accommodation.

Excellent Location, Apartment and Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property with excellent facilities, very good position in complex, good access to pool and beach, lovely bar and very friendly residents.

Flat is well equipped and kitchen has all the useful things you need to cook and entertain.

It’s also a great complex and apartment for families with children of all ages, with excellent amenities. Supermarket cafes and restaurants only a short walk away. My wife and I have stayed in this apartment several times already this year and plan to go again. It’s very safe and secure.

Hospitality of the managing agents is fantastic with a friendly and personable but professional service and attention to detail given at all times. Couldn't ask for better all round. Worth every penny.

Thank you
