All Good, everything clean and usable, lovely location, helpful and friendly caretaker

  • 4 of 5

Arrived after 1am and the Lin the caretaker stayed up to welcome us in to the apartment which was much appreciated.

Lovely sized apartment with great views, lovely terrace and pool. Something for the whole family.

Only one negative was that the biggest room was used as a twin with the smallest for the double, might be better the other way around.

All in all a lovely location and accommodation, and very easy for touring the region having taken in the nearby Roman Baths, Jerez and a few Bodegas and the lovely old town in Marbella. All in all a smashing apartment in a great location. Steve, Debs and Family

Lovely accommodation in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment, it's well laid out, very clean and had everything we needed to keep my teenage stepson and my in-laws happy all week. The quality of furniture, fittings, etc was very good; comfortable beds and sofas. Bedrooms 2 & 3 and the shared bathroom are on the small side, but this is a compromise we were happy to make for the larger kitchen & lounge / diner. The outdoor space is a real plus - the terrace & lawn are great for sunbathing and outdoor dining.

Location wise, we visited Duquesa, Sotogrande, Tarifa & Gibraltar - it's a great base for the beach and for exploring the region. Lin, the meet & greet lady was helpful and friendly, with fantastic local knowledge

We'll definitely return & I would recommend to others

Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Apt was very clean and well maintained. Beautiful views from our terrace. Gardens and pool area well kept. Neighbours, some residential some holidaymakers, but all were very friendly. As the property was in a gated are, this made you feel very safe, especially as we have two children. Beautiful sandy beaches across the road as well as a delicious beach bar, we ended up eating there most evenings. The road is on a bus route for the coast but I would recommend a car for easier access to shopping etc. We would definitely return and I would highly advised this property for family and couples looking for a relaxing holiday with great beaches and opportunities to visit castles, churches, Gibraltar and water parks. Thanks.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Gibraltar at 30 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Tubalitas at 300 Metres Nearest Golf : Duquesa at 6 Kilometres Nearest Train : San Roque at 25 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Autopista de Mediteraneo E15 (AP7) at 5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Tubalitas at 300 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Paraiso at 300 Miles Car: recommended


An unspoilt beach across the road, with its own beach bar/restaurant, is only 300m away. The beautiful beaches at Sabinillas, Duquesa , Torreguardiaro, Sotogrande and Alcaidesa boast good beaches with many watersports including windsurfing, sailing and pedalos. At Gibraltar and La Linea (about 20-25 minutes' drive) you can go out on dolphin watching and fishing trips. A waterpark is open in the Summer in Algeciras, 30 minutes away.


Gibraltar airport is a 20-25 minute drive with flights from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham. Malaga Airport is about an hour on the E15 (AP7) toll road and Jerez Airport is about 1.5 hours by motorway. Car hire is really essential but cabs are plentiful and can be easily arranged for evenings out to the local bars and restaurants at the local marinas of Duquesa and Sotogrande, the sea front at Torrequadiaro and the town of Pueblo Nuevo de Guadiaro, if required.


Sotogrande, Duquesa, Sabinillas and Estepona are all within a 10 minute drive. Puerto Banus and Marbella with their designer shops, restaurants and nightlife are only about a 25 minute drive. The white villages of Manilva, dating back to Roman times, and San Roque are only a short drive away and Casares, another spectacular white village, is well worth a drive with many excellent restaurants to visit en route.

Further Details:

There are many shops and supermarkets in Duquesa, Sabinillas and Sotogrande where you can find most things you might need together with numerous international restaurants ranging from typical Spanish to Japanese. The closest supermarket (Eroski) is at the next roundabout from the apartment towards Duquesa and there are three large supermarkets (Mercadona ,Supercor and Lidl) in Pueblo Nuevo de Guariaro near to Sotogrande , a Mercadona in Duquesa and another Lidl in Sabinillas. There is an English butcher in Puerto Duquesa and Pueblo Nuevo and English newspapers can be found in both places as well as a small shop along the coast road in Torreguardiaro. More information about local facilities and activities can be found in the information book in the apartment.
