Great Place for a Relaxing Break

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was perfect for us; spacious and fitted with everything we could need. We ate out the whole time as we were there to chill out and we were very impressed with the choice of bars and restaurants. We would come again. Thanks.

Lovely area shame about the weather

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this frontline apartment for 4 nights with the intention of looking around the area to view some properties. Unfortunately the weather, for the full stay, was atrocious and didn’t get to do what we wanted. The apartment we stayed in was brilliant, lovely and clean and ideal for a short stay. Might get a little bit too noisy in summertime as it was right on the marina and it could get busy on a Saturday night. Gave us a good insight to what we would like and was well worth the visit.

Great location with every thing that you would to have a fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable,spacious 2 bedroom apartment with everything that you would need literally home from home. Fantastic location right on the front with great views of the port and sea, with restaurants bars and cafe’s all a stones throw away. Duquesa offers both day and night life that would suit most family’s / couples.

The areas surrounding Duquesa are well worth an explore from Gibraltar, Marbella to Ronda we have had a fantastic holiday and will certainly return.
