Spanish translation below English description.
A luxury front line high specification air conditioned 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom golf / beach apartment with view of the Mediterranean, Rock of Gibraltar and Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The South facing terrace, from which you can hear the Sea, soaks up the sun all day long whilst, inside, the apartment is cool and spacious.

Within easy reach of this unique location, there are a multitude of opportunities for relaxation, discovery and sport. Take a whale and dolphin watching trip or fish for tuna in the Straits of Gibraltar. The waters off the coast of Andalucia are home to a large population of whales and dolphins.
Or head west to the Atlantic coast and the old port town of Tarifa, where you will find an exciting mix of old and new. Overlaid against a backdrop of the ancient and beautifully preserved Moorish town and port of Tarifa is the ultra-modern, ultra-cool vibe of Europe's most popular watersports' destination. The combination of beautiful long white sandy beaches and almost constant winds, have made Tarifa a 'must-do' location for windsurfers and kitesurfers from around the globe for over 4 decades.
For the adventurous you can cross from one continent to another in 35 minutes on the fast ferry from Tarifa and play golf in Morocco at Royal Golf de Tanger. Shop in the Kasbah or take tea in one of the beautiful Riads. Day tours or overnight stays can easily be arranged. where you have the choice of a personal guide at the ferry port for a private tour of Tangier.
Within a short car trip you will find the jewels in the Andalucian crown; Cádiz, Cordoba, Granada, Sevilla, Málaga, Ronda and Jerez. The impact of the Moors' 700 year rule and the shorter prior stays of the Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans, is still very much in evidence in these beautiful cities and towns. Sample tapas in Ronda seated 300 feet above the river gorge, sip sherry and watch a show of the world famous Andalucian Horses in Jerez or visit the stunning cathedral and take in Flamenco in Seville.
Alcaidesa is an exclusive area with a real Mediterranean feel and has three miles of wonderful beaches with a variety of great beach bars in summer. The beach also has facilities such as showers and toilets. The beautiful surrounding landscape makes this a truly unique setting. The beaches are long and peaceful, bathed in crystal clear waters. Here you can enjoy a sensation of peace and exclusivity as Alcaidesa is surrounded by protected forested areas. Alcaidesa enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate the whole year round with a high percentage of sunny days. Summers are not as hot as they are in nearby towns as Alcaidesa enjoys a microclimate with optimal temperatures in practically every season. The landscape offers a spectacle thanks to the magnificent views of the Mediterranean, Gibraltar and the African coast.

Disappointment at reality of luxury apartment in Alcaidesa
This is NOT a luxury apartment. The lounge is nice and comfortable and the view amazing.
It was nice and clean.
The ELECTRICAL SUPPLY is insufficient. With 13 degree temps we had to use heating.
Cooking at the same time was not an option. The electricity tripped 5 times. it took 5 hours
to restore on the first occasion. We were both unwell and needed to self cater,
keep warm and use the internet.
MASTER BEDROOM the memory foam mattress was so worn we had to heave ourselves
out of a hole to turn over.
BATHROOMS (we need a bathroom each)
Shower screens were too narrow so we were constantly worried about flooding the bathroom.
We felt insecure having nothing to steady ourselves with while showering
Not enough towel rail space
Nowhere except under the basin (which smelt of drains) to put things in.
No hooks for clothes/dressing gowns.
NO EXTRACTOR FAN.
LINENS + TOWELS The anticipated supply totally inadequate for two weeks. We
requested and received more. (It rained solidly for 8 days making drying difficult)
NO INSTRUCTIONS/MANUALS FOR KITCHEN APPLIANCES.
Elaine the managing agent was fantastic. Always there to help, she even came with
us to show us the way to Gibraltar hospital.
Great Chill Out Place
We got what we went for...a complete chill out in a very nice apartment. Very few people around (11-18/9/16) and we had the beautiful pool to ourselves most days. Flew into Gibraltar so about a 20 minute drive to the resort. You DO need a car! We ate at the beach cafe/restaurant which was nice but the Thai restaurant, just outside the entrance to the resort, food was superb. TV was great to have for the evenings. Enjoyed eating out on the patio, view was so beautiful. Elaine was extremely helpful with the handover and on leaving.
Spotless apartment in a quiet residential area
The apartment is spotless with immaculate pools and gardens. The apartment comes with wifi, satellite TV and all kitchen appliances, the only negative was the bedding and towels. We stayed for 2 weeks but only had one set of bedding and 1 towel per person, although, there is a washing machine so I was able to change the beds, I would have liked a change of bedding and clean towels for the second week.
The 4 pools are all close to the apartment, and most of the time, very quiet, in the mornings we had the pool to ourselves and even in the evenings we were only sharing it with a handful of people. The pools are deep and there is no small pool, so I won't recommend it if your kids can't swim.
This area is VERY quiet, there is a small corner shop and 3 restaurants in the square but this is a 20 min uphill walk away. The beach is a 5/10 minute walk away but this beach has no amenities, if you want a toilet and a place to get a drink, it is a good 20 minute walk away. We found the area a good place to explore from but you need a car, even to get to a decent shop or a restaurant. La Finca is 3 km not 0.8km, it's a great restaurant but it's 40 minutes walk so you need to drive.
Very well kept apartment with a marvellous seeview.
Due to Elaine we felt at home immediately. She gave all the information we needed about the apartment (the airco, the shutters, the TV etc), parking (safely in the parkinglot beneath the apartments), the nearest supermarkets and the little shops in the park. We loved to play the two golfcourses, to walk to the beach which is very peaceful and to visit Gibraltar, which is very near.
24 July 2016 Location superb
Our holiday at this apartment was great ,all facilities were on the door step ,we made good use of the pool, and the beach , which was a stones throw away. would recommend this location to anyone, you need a car to explore ,
Modern, well-furnished holiday apartment
We enjoyed our stay in this modern, well furnished apartment. La Marina de la Alcaidesa feels like the newest development in Alcaidesa. Building was modern, the pool areas spacious and everywhere looked well maintained.
Apartment with 2 separate bedrooms and bathrooms was spacious and the terrace off the master and the lounge offered nice views over the Links Course to the sea. Wifi was strong and reliable. Local concierge Barbara was very kind and helpful; definitely an asset. Booking process smooth and hassle free.
Underground car park would be useful but the nominated space was a tight squeeze. No probs though to leave the car outside in the road, which is what we did. All in all a great stay and I'm sure we will return.
