Great apartment with everything youneed

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just lovely; spacious, clean and equipped with everything you need. We stayed here with our 20 month old son and it was perfect for a family get away. The balcony is totally safe for liitle ones and the graden provided plenty of entertainment trucking gravel around. It was really peaceful whilst we were there, the pool never had more than a few people around it at most. The main pool is very deep and clean and the small toddler pool was a hit. The air con and window shutters make for a comfortable sleep and, if you can be bothered, the sun rise over the hills and ocean is worth getting up for.

Located 10 minutes walk up the hill from the marina, we walked down most evenings for dinner where there are a choice of places to eat. The closest beach is shale and has a restaurant also. You definitely need a car to stay here, La Herradura is just 10 mins drive away which again has shale beaches and lots of places to eat. Nerja is maybe 20 mins away and we drove here a few times for sandy beaches and amazing ice cream.

Mike was really helpful in the run up with answering questions.

This place is a joy to stay at and I would totally recommend it for both families and adult only groups.

Excellent accommodation, everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the accommodation it was modern, clean and contained everything we needed. The views over the sea were fantastic and the back garden had much needed morning shade. The air conditioning was excellent during the heat wave, and the pool was nearby and well maintained. There were also beach parasols and mats for days out. Great underground secure parking and near some good local resorts. We will definitely hope to return.

Marina del Este
Car: recommended


The marina is about a 10 minute walk and has several excellent restaurants and bars, art galleries and a dive centre. Adjacent to the marina is a small, sheltered shingle beach with safe swimming and some of the best diving in Southern Spain. La Herradura is about 1.5km away and has a 2km long horseshoe-shaped bay and a pleasant beach with several beach bars and restaurants.

Almunecar is the main town about 8km away with several large beaches, a water park, restaurants and many other facilities.


Malage airport is 80km to the west with motorway to within 5km of the apartment giving a commute of around 55 minutes.

Granada airport is also about 90km but with motorway taking around an hour. However, the airport is much quieter and the drive is spectacular with the towering Sierra Nevada mountains and beautiful valleys and gorges of the Alpjurras.

Due to the quiet location, car hire is strongly recommended for easy access to shops etc and to make the most of the stunning scenery.


Nerja is the start of the Costa del Sol and is 10 minutes drive west on the motorway or 20 minutes by the winding coast road. The beautiful mountain village of Frigiliana is 10 minutes from Nerja. The Marina and local beach are just a few hundred metres away.

The main local seaside town of Almunecar is about 8 kms and the coastal village of La Herradura about 2km. Granada and the Alhambra palace is about an hour inland with many beautiful villages nestling in the Alpjurras en route.

Further Details:

The small, exclusive marina has some beautiful boats to drool over whilst enjoying a meal or tapas at one of the several excellent restaurants. There are also several art galleries and shops. The adjoining Playa de los Berengueles is a small natural bay ideally suited to diving and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters. It has a lively beach bar where you can enjoy a meal or drink and also hire parasols and sunbeds. The local village of La Herradura stretches out along the 2km long bay with a number of seafront bars and restaurants. The village rises back uphill from the beach with a small market, a jumble of narrow streets with shops and a local supermarket.

Almunecar is a typically old Spanish seaside town, dating back to Roman times, and is overlooked by the remains of an old Moorish castle. The maze of narrow streets in the old quarter are crammed with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants which come alive at night. There is an excellent indoor market selling (cheap!) wonderful freshly caught fish and seafood and an amazing variety of exotic, locally grown fruit and vegetables - it is not surprising the area is called the Costa Tropical!

There are tropical gardens and parks to relax in, plazas with tapas bars and restaurants offering alfresco dining. The palm-lined promenade stretches several kilometres with many excellent restaurants and lively bars. There is also a large Aqua park with flumes and rides, which is open June until September.

Nerja is a 10 minute drive away and is a more developed resort, more typical of the neighbouring Costa del Sol, with sandy beaches and the beautiful Balcon de Europa promenade and pedastrianised shopping area.

The surrounding area is national park with many walking and cycle routes with pretty mountain villages dotted around the Alpajurras and slightly further afield in the Sierra Nevada.

The beautiful city of Granada is an easy drive of around an hour on the new motorway which carves its way through the spectacular scenery of the Alpajarras and Sierra Nevada mountains .The historic Alhambra palace is a 'must see' when visiting Granada

The Sierra Nevada ski resort is about a 90 minute drive and features over 80kms of pistes and 23 lifts.With skiing upto 3400m , it has a terrific snow record from early December until late April with good beginners and intermediate slopes

The resort of Solynieve successfully combines the Alpine apres ski with Spanish tapas

If you are a music lover then the area caters for all musical tastes with La Herradura hosting the Andres Segovia International classical guitar competition every November , Almunecar hosting a jazz festival in July and any number of concerts and flamenco performances throughout the year .
