About the property

Apartment in Sotogrande, Costa del Sol, Spain - 150 yards to the Beach. Short walk to Bars and Restaurants

Two bedroom apartment overlooking the marina in one of the best locations in Sotogrande. This superbly located property has terraces at both the front and the rear of the property so the sun can be enjoyed all day long. The front terrace is overlooking the marina.

The beach and tennis club are a couple of hundred yards away. El Octogona Beach Club is also nearby. Octogono is the best placed of the two beach clubs for water sports. There is catamaran sailing from the sailing school, jet skiing and waterskiing off the beach nearby and kayaking on the River Guadiaro where a natural lagoon has formed at the river mouth providing an ideal place to learn the skills in a safe environment.

Within walking distance of the apartment are all the bars and restaurants of Sotogrande Port. The apartment is perfectly located for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday with all facilities on your doorstep.

The key collection point is now in Sotogrande for our guests convenience.

About Karina Bowlby


I work in the Polo industry and bought this lovely little apartment so that I could continue to play some polo in the winter months in Sotogrande.

When I saw this apartment I fell in love with it. It is bright and airy and just has the most wonderful location with so many activities within a couple of minutes walk. Also, with the balcony overlooking the marina, it is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine or two in the evening.

I hope you will love staying in this apartment as much as I do.

Best wishes

Why Karina Bowlby chose San Roque

I love holidaying here. It is quiet but with all the things you need like the beach, tennis and restaurants within a short walk.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is located in the quieter end of Sotogrande but still close enough to walk to the port where you will find the wonderful new shopping mall and some great restaurants.

The beach is so close you can almost roll out of bed and onto the beach! Around the beach you have the tennis club and sailing school. Also the beach club has a very good restaurant too!

Great location, near to Gigi's Beach Hut

  • 5 of 5

Clean apartment with nice lounge and two besuited, nice balcony overlooking the marina. Parking is easy on the road outside. The new marina with the majority of restaurants is over the other side of the water, but we liked the slightly quieter feel of this apartment.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely apartment. It is clean and tidy and in a great location near the beach.

There are lots of good places to eat and drink and the tennis club is in walking distance. Sotogrande is quiet though but that suited me as I just wanted to relax.

Will definitely book again. It was prefect for a relaxing holiday.

Great location but quite a few disappointments...

  • 2 of 5

Location of the flat is ideal as it is easy walking distance from the beach and it is in a quiet street. The view of the marina from the terrace is also lovely. But I am afraid the positives end there:

1) I could not believe that I had to stop at La Cala de Mijas to pick up the key to the flat, getting off the motorway and wasting precious time when the owner could have picked a local agent in Sotogrande. What if I flew into Gibraltar? People at the agency are also rude.

2) There is no wifi in the flat and the modem the agency can offer to you is so hopeless I ended up using my own smartphone as a modem.

3) The walls are completely bare, not a single print, so it does not feel welcoming.

4) The kitchen is poorly equipped - there was not even a chopping board or a pair of scissors.

5) The dishwasher leaked on our first use and it took a full two days for an engineer to turn up, who told us categorically that the machine was beyond repair, and that it must have been in that state for a long time judging by a rusty hole through which the leak was coming. This meant we had to wash everything by hand.

6) The shower in the second bedroom was a joke - it created a mist of spray so feeble you could hardly rinse youself. All that was required was probably a new shower head.

7) The fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms had no shelves at all. Given that the tight bedrooms had hardly any space for good size drawers, we had to live out of open suitcases on the floor of the living room.

8) The boiler cupboard smelt badly, possibly from the mop or something else, and the floor brush was so filthy with fluff and hair stuck to it I hardly wanted to touch it.

As you can see there isn't much care that has gone into making the flat comfortable or welcoming. Ultimately it is very disappointing because the whole thing feels so loveless and uncared for.

Owner's Response: Obviously I want everyone to have a brilliant holiday. We have been fully booked this Summer with most guests booking again but everybody is different and will address the issues you raised. There is another key collection point near Gibraltar. Previous guests have used the wifi and had no problems. The dishwasher was fixed as soon as we became aware of the problem. I did suggest you phone me but you weren't interested in discussing the matter.

Sotogrande - Ribera del Candil

  • 5 of 5

We had chosen this apartment for a relaxing family holiday - 3 generations including 2 grandchildren Perhaps not your usual occupants! We had a brilliant relaxing time in your well appointed apartment. The beach being 150m away was hugely appreciated by my grandson! It was quieter than we expected (but that was a bonus) and found the Beach Club good fun as was the cafe/restaurant next door In the evenings we went to La Terrasse Brasserie - excellent meals and brilliant service Try the Argentinian steak - absolutely delicious! Would recommend hiring a car Highly recommended for family holiday

There are 5 very good golf courses in Sotogrande including the famous Valderama

Sotogrande is most famous for Polo. There are a massive 18 polo fields located in Sotogrande. In August the famous faces of polo come to Sotogrande to take part in tournaments and it provides and excellent opportunity to watch this beautiful game played by the best in the world.

Sotogrande has a nature reserve which is perfect for walking. Mountain biking trails are also close by. For an enjoyable day out take the boat over to Africa which takes only 30 mins.


150 yards to the beach where the El Octogono beach club is located. On the beach you will also find watersports, beach bars and the catamaran service.


1 hour from Malaga airport, 20 mins from Gibraltar.


Gibraltar with it's tax free shopping and dolphin excursions is within 20 minutes or perhaps the nightlife of Puerto Banus is more your thing. Puerto Banus is a 30 minute drive away. A boat trip to Africa will also take only 30 minutes for a different day out.

Further Details:

Sotogrande Port has a wide range of bars and restaurants to suit every taste. There are also banks and boutiques. The supermarket is a 5 minute drive away.
