Guestbook comments from the owner

Super apartment and pool, views were breathtaking, we had a truly great time. Can recommend it to anyone. Mark and Susan.

Our second year in this wonderful apartment, can't get enough of it. Extremely spacious and the area is top class, definitely want to return yet again next year- Andy and Julie.

We had a brilliant time, the apartment was everything we had hoped for and more - we would recommend the apartment to any suitable clients and will contact you for a return booking for ourselves - Jake and Diane.

Your apartment is fantastic. The photographs are good but can't do it the justice it deserves! We absolutely loved your Pool and these were the Sea views that Cees was desperately looking for. We will be back very very soon. Already Booked for 2011 - Fiona and Cees (Belgium)

We just love Las Tortugas. extremely spacious apartment, beautifully furnished and the Terrace is so large. Enjoyed every minute and have Booked again for 2010. Susan and David.

You can also take relaxing Boat rides along the coast from Marbella. Jet ski- ing is becoming popular now and of course you can access this and other water sport from Puerto Banus!


Las Tortugas - is situated on the beautiful Sunshine coast, 50km from the Airport. You fly to Malaga and on arrival easily pick up (and return) low cost hire cars (recommended) from reputable rental companies which are so convenient as they are available directly on the airport terminal or alternatively go by one of the many taxi's which are readily available from the Taxi rank located just outside terminal.

You can also fly directly to Gibraltar if that's easier for you. + Rental Car.


Puerto Banus (2km) is well renowned for its affluence, sophisticated and jet set lifestyle, designer shops, great nightclubs, pretty marina with impressive yachts and lovely sandy beaches.

In both Puerto Banus and Marbella - you can shop ‘til you drop! Both have fantastic department stores "El Corte Angles".which is similar to our Selfridges and Harrods. All the haute couture designer shops you can possibly think of Armani, Chanel, Ralph Llauren, Prada, Christian Dior etc and Puerto Banus holds a huge open market every Saturday morning between 9am-2pm at the bull ring, great for bargains, leather goods, jewellery, clothes, art and antiques etc.

Puerto Banus also boasts a great night out at a casino if you fancy a flutter. A good cinema if you can't live without watching the latest films and plenty of bars and restaurants specialising in all types of good quality international and cosmopolitan food and of course superb wines!

Selwo animal adventure park is a short distance away and great for a fun day out.

Other historic places worth a visit are Ronda a pretty Spanish town perched above a deep gorge easily accessible by car and Granada where you can visit the amazing Alhambra Palace.

Excellent Villa!

Villa was excellent. Very well presented, modern with all requirements tailored for. The view from the villa over PB to the sea is fabulous. Would recommend and plan to stay again.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just perfect. Spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished. Situated in a perfect position overlooking the pool and out towards Puerto banus and the sea. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they went out of their way to ensure that our holiday went smoothly. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. Thank you Valerie and Bill.

Lovely complex, Superb apartment fabulous hosts

  • 5 of 5

Having holidayed in this part of Nueva Andalucia for most of my life I know the area as well as home, since selling the family villa 6 yrs ago my wife and I have tried many different complexes, this year our usual agent let us down and failed to find anything suitable, I rather glad they did, everything from the initial contact which was friendly yet professional to the booking process and finally to the actual Las Tortugas complex which far exceeded our expectations. Obviously I knew the location and area very well which helped the whole process, but the apartment is in easy reach of anywhere that you'd want to go and far enough away from the sadly slightly naff areas ("The only way is Marbs" folk etc) which you would want to avoid. The apartment is modern, very spacious, very secure and perfectly located within the complex. The complex is up market without being stuffy, again very secure and not too busy, no need to claim the sun loungers at 5 am here ! Whilst we didn't use the pool area much by day that is purely our choice, as we like the nearby Marbella Club Beach for daytime relaxing. The pool however never looked busy, and I was able to get in my morning lengths right up until 10.00 am ish without disturbance. The pool incendently is fab, Huge!!!

Finally just a big thank you to Valerie and Bill for there friendless throughout the whole process, they certainly have repeat customers here.

The apartment was just as advertised. Very spacious and beautifully decorated. The outside area is a real bonus, with a wonderful view and plenty of space and comfortable furniture for al fresco living.

Valerie and Bill were very friendly and helpful throughout the booking process and provided excellent customer service throughout our stay.

The overall location is great, but a car is a must as it is 3km to the nearest shop for necessities and beach is not within walking distance.

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and hope to visit again one day.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Immaculately presented apartment, lovely pool, quiet area, taxi ride to centre of Puerto Banus - ideally you'd need a car. Would have benefited from having more than 1 set of keys for groups as opposed to families sharing the apartment otherwise no complaints would def consider using again :)
