About the Owner

My wife and our two daughters live in Berkshire. We also like to spend as much time as possible in our apartment is Spain. We have used it for a relaxing pool holiday as well as a base for visiting some of the wonderful sights and attractions in the Southern part of Spain.

We are extremely happy with our apartment and get real pleasure when others use it and have as much fun as we do.

Our two daughters never want to come home when we are out there and count the days until we return.

Clean but basic. Needs updating

  • 2 of 5

The apartment was adequate but really basic. It was immaculately clean but little things were noticed that when added up meant the quality of the accommodation was lacking. Examples were chipped cups, old stains on the beds and bedding. The Windows either didn't open easily one bedroom window was wedged shut with a golf tee. Quite isolated, so a car is essential.

Very basic information in the apartment regarding the surrounding area. This apartment will need some input to ensure it reaches the new standards required from May 2016. The pool was a good size and clean but at weekend was overrun with what appeared to be local people and lots of their children. This combined with a dog that yapped from very early morning to late at night made being outside not a particularly restful experience.

Having stayed frequently in this area I could not recommend this apartment, there are many others that are in a better location and much better value for money.

From the Owner

We liked this location as it is in the middle of so many great things from beaches to golf courses, Gibraltar and the wonderful Marina at Duquesa. There is a fantastic beach within walking distance and we have fallen in love with the local Chiringuito.

Activity and Interests


The nearest beach is a 4 minute walk from the apartment, The beach is well maintained and is very clean. There are a number of Chiringuitos on the beach offering that mandatory cooling drink during the day and some quite spectacular fresh fish dishes in the evening. The staff are always very friendly and welcoming.

There are other beaches in Duquesa and Sabinillas which are less than a 5 minute drive away.


Malaga airport is 55 minutes away.

Gibraltar airport is 20 minutes away.


Duquesa marina is the nearest area of concentrated bars and restaurants and is a two minute drive away. Sabinillas is the nearest town with banks, pharmacies etc and is a 3 minute drive away.

Further Details:

Marina Duquesa has just about every kind of restaurant you can think of including Chinese, Indian, Italian, Thai, Mexican, Spanish and English. If you are looking for something really special there is a quite spectacular restaurant in the nearby resort on Benhavis. This restaurant was voted in the top 10 of Andalucian restaurants and has a number of themed bedrooms should you wish to stay over.

A quick trip along the coast takes you to Gibraltar where you can visit the caves and museum whilst observing the daring nature of the indigenous Macaque apes. There are a number of activities here including dolphin tours and some fantastic duty free shopping.

Marbella is a 20 minute drive away but is well worth a trip. There are some fantastic restaurants and shops and Puerto Banus is the playground of the rich and famous so keep a look out for some celebs.

Granada is a 3 hour trip but is well worth it to see the Alhambra Palace. Take a trip to the Alhambra Palace Hotel and have a drink of the terrace with it's spectacular views from its dominant position in the Sierra range.
