Modern well presented apartment with all you need for a great holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We found the apartment spotlessly clean, well equipped and offered everything we needed for our holiday. The information pack supplied to us was very helpful in get the most from our stay. A car is essential due to its location and there was plenty of on street parking near the apartment and near the beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive comments about cleanliness, equipment and information pack. A car can an advantage for touring or with toddlers, although following the walking routes we suggest, beaches, a choice of restaurants, and shops can be easily walked to in 20 minutes. Public transport by train, taxi, or bus provides a relaxing alternative (see David Hall review 31-Aug-14).

beautiful apartment on a very relaxing complex

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here for 10 days and wanted to stay longer the apartment is so lovely very clean and beautifully furnished,

the complex is small and very quiet many days we had the pool to ourselves was bliss, sitting on the balcony in the evenings was so relaxing and peaceful. there's plenty of restaurants not far away would highly reccomend La Plazza italian within walking distance we went there twice food, surroundings and service is fantastic. a bit further afield up the main road towards cala is another great restaurant Enriques .

we had a hire car so went out and about to marbella, gibralta and many more areas. we're hoping to go back there next year as we had such a lovely time there.

Luxury Apratment on a Lovely Complex

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment on a very quiet & friendly complex. Pool is perfect for all (especially kids 8 & 11)

The owners are very helpful & supply loads of information on apartment & area

It is well worth having a car to make it easier to get around. But we found local Taxi's very easy to hire (from Oasis Club)

La Cala de Mijas which is approximately 8 mins away in car a perfect evening for food & drink

With lovely weather it is recommended

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Whilst a number of our guests choose not to hire a car we agree a car can be an advantage. Although, as you say, local taxis are convenient. We are pleased you found our informatopn pack helpful.

Smart apartment comfortably furnished with good facilities and security

  • 4 of 5

Apartment felt reasonably private with a lovely pool area and gardens, which we used a lot also very nice views from the balcony.Excellent information from owners meant everything was easy clear and no stress. There are a lot of stairs so make sure to use the elevators when you bringing up shopping . The apartment is clean and relaxing with efficient air con. However found there was a lovely breeze in the afternoon /early evening which meant we just left the patio doors open the apartment was nice and cool. There are a variety of restaurants in both Calahonda and Riveira, take time to explore as they are not all obvious straight away. Both resort areas are quite a long walk but at least they are downhill so not so bad. I would not have been able to manage the walk back up that easily (dodgy knees) but both resorts have ample taxis from a central point (6-7 euros) and you never had to wait for one . Our favourite restaurant was El Juncal on the beach in Riviera open all day till 11.30pm great seafood grill on an open fire, tasty paella amongst other dishes, during the day it provides beach services , has a great team of staff who are sociable as well as efficient and the most efficient , reliable free WiFi in town. In Calahonda the are a lot of restaurants together in el Zocalo but I did not like them felt like a cramped noisy food court. If you walk back up Avenida de Espagna there is a a little parade of smarter more relaxed restaurants. We used a car to visit Ronda, Marbella and back into Malaga which has tons of atmosphere, great tapas and the Picasso museum as well as plenty more to see.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your review and we are pleased that, as you told us, you enjoyed your stay and found our information pack useful. We agree the use of lifts provides easier access with shopping / luggage. They enable all to enjoy the views and refreshing afternoon breeze you mention, only available from an elevated location. We will pass on to future guests your useful and detailed restaurant recommendations. Although Calahonda and Riviera are an easy 20 minutes walk from the apartment, use of taxis is sound advice for those with walking difficulties, thank you.

A great apartment. Well equipped, modern, clean and tidy communal fascilities.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to John and Katie for great communication during the booking process, and for a great stay. You provided great detail in your welcome pack and were very accommodating to our needs.

We travelled as a family of 4 adults (2 couples) and a baby. Whilst the stairs to the apartment were not ideal for a pushchair, we were advised of this prior to booking, the apartment was great for us. Plenty of space so that we were not on top of each other, a modern and very well equipped kitchen, plenty of living space, and a lovely balcony large enough for all of us to dine on comfortably. Great views over the pool and towards to sea. The pool and other communal areas were very well kept. We used the pool at some point most days, and were often the only people there. It often got busier after 5.30 when we were going in. It felt very exclusive and were were able to relax (at nap time)!

Lots to explore in the local (ish) area but you need to be happy to walk. Both Riviera and Calahona have plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. Both are around a 20 minute walk away but neither walk is flat. The beach is just a few more minutes walk away. The resorts themselves are more expensive than the commercial resorts of Fuengirola and Benelmadena, but it was nice to be somewhere less crowded and a bit more upmarket.

We hired a car from a rental shop in Riviera for 4 days. The prices were very reasonable and we were able to explore local beaches, other resorts, and Gibraltar. There is so much to see in the area that we could have easily gone somewhere different each day had we rented one for our whole stay.

Overall, a great stay. Recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and your kind comments about our apartment and communication. Details for access by 2 elevators are included in our information pack, however, we have today revised the information to ensure the elevator details are more visible. The apartment is pushchair and wheelchair friendly and it is important our guests requiring elevator access know how to access both elevators. Thank you for mentioning the amount of detail in our information pack, we are delighted when our guests find the information useful. We agree there is a lot to explore in the area, the walk to Calahonda is particularly picturesque.

Spacious apartment

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at Monte Marina apartment for a month and found it quite spacious. Excellent base to explore the area. Grounds & pool were kept immaculate and quiet. Very good base, centrally located on the Costa del Sol. Nearest location for beach, supermarkets, bars,etc., good 15-20 mins walk or 5mins by car. Be wary of taxi charges, the charge to Calle Opalo entrance from Riviera were at least a few euros more than using the main entrance at Calle Topacio. I would advise anyone who has not been to Monte Marina before and has luggage, to use the main entrance which has lifts to the apartment level as the steps are very difficult to ascend, being steep and many. Had a small 'hiccup' when we arrived, contacted the owners who immediately had the problem sorted [very nice people]. Had a very nice stay there, could of stayed another month.
