The Costa del Sol region
The Costa del Sol is one of Europe's most popular year-round holiday spots, stretching 160 kilometres to the east and west of Malaga on the south coast of Spain. The name translates as "Sunny Coast", "Sunshine Coast" or more literally, Coast of the Sun. Miles of magnificent beaches cater for sun soakers, watersports enthusiasts and celebrity spotters. The rich and famous are to be found in swanky Puerto Banus on their multi-million pound yachts.
If you're a golfer, you've come to the right place. The fine weather allows golf to be popular all year round on the Costa del Sol. In recent years the Costa Del Sol has become known to golf enthusiasts as the "Costa Del Golf" due to the number of high quality golf courses. This is truly the golfing Mecca of Europe with nearly 60 courses in Andalucia including 30 along the coast between Gibraltar and Malaga, attracting golfers from all over Europe and the rest of the world.
The waters off the coast of Andalucia are home to a large population of whales and dolphins.
The Alcaidesa / Marina de la Alcaidesa area
Alcaidesa is a peaceful residential estate and tourist development enjoying beautiful Mediterranean views with an unbeatable beachfront location between Sotogrande and San Roque. The two kilometers stretch accompanying the village has earned blue flag status for meeting high standards regarding cleanliness and environmental friendliness. The village square is located in the centre of Alcaidesa where local amenities include supermarket, pharmacy and bars/restaurants.
The town of Sotogrande can be reached within a few minutes and is ideal for a day out. Numerous excellent restaurants and bars, a variety of sports facilities, countless shops and a marina where impressive yachts can be found await you. Another popular destination is Gibraltar with its duty free shops. The “Rock” is also famous for its apes and the caves that can be visited.
Other nearby destinations include the charming town of Marbella with its romantic old town, the exclusive Puerto Banus where luxury yachts, boutiques, restaurants, bars and clubs are located and the town of Tarifa, famous for its fantastic beaches and water sports. For the adventurous, Morocco is just a 30 minute ferry ride from Tarifa, where you can meet your personal guide at the ferry port for a private tour of Tangier.
During your leisure time you can also practise your swing on one of the nearby golf courses with Alcaidesa Links, San Roque, Almenara, and La Cala established as some of the finest in Europe.

Well appointed apartment, comfortable and very clean. Delightful views of the beach and Gibraltar. A car is essential for touring and supermarket shopping, which is just a few miles away. The beach is a short downhill walk away, however there is a number of lovely pools to use on the complex for the less adventurous.
We had such a great time we are sure to return again in the near future.

We had a lovely holiday in this apartment with my 3 year old son and 7 month old baby and my mother. I was a little nervous booking an apartment over the internet as I had never done this before but booking was easy and Martin and Faith called me personally and they have been extremely helpful.
I chose the apartment because it was close to Gibraltar airport and we flew from Gatwick. Gibraltar was probably 15 min drive away. You need a car here. We hired our car from NIZA cars through Arguscarhire and it was on the Spanish side of the border. So when you get to the airport you come out and walk over the border and just the other side is an outside shopping centre maybe 300m from the aiport? It's much easier to hire a car on the Spanish side as there is an immigration queue waiting to get in and out of Gibraltar (UK territory).
When we got there a lady met us at the apartment and let us in and showed us round. The apartment is on the ground floor so easy to get in and out of with bags, buggies etc. It was really helpful to have a washing machine and dishwasher. There was also Astra Freeview which meant that we had cbeebies and lots of British channels to watch. There were also a number of dvds there. Everything was very clean and the furnishings were very nice and modern. The beds were comfortable and bedding was fine. There was plenty of hot water and the showers were great. Stunning views from the main bedroom and lounge out to the rock of Gibraltar.
We slept in the double bedroom with our baby in our bed. My mother slept in the twin bedroom with our toddler and we pushed the beds together to stop him rolling out onto the floor. As we didn't use a cot, I put my baby in the car seat to sleep during the evenings in the lounge with us as I didn't want to leave him unsupervised in the bedroom. Underground parking was good for keeping the car cool and secure. Lift access up to the apartments. The complex is very secure, there are electric metal blinds which can keep the apartment cool and secure during the day when you are out.
We used local supermarket Mercadona (fairly cheap bit better than Aldi) - recommended to us by the lady who let us into the apartment. Head along the A7 in the direction of Malaga and come off at Sotogrande and look for Centro Commercial.
Daytrips - We didn't go down to the beach as we went out every day exploring the local area. We went to Selwo adventure park http://www.selwo.es/ Puerto Banus, Gibraltar - took cable car ride to the top and saw the monkeys, also went to Puerto de la Duquesa which had a nice beach and marina, Casares was a nice white washed hilltop town with a little market on Friday morning and made a pleasant trip.
One tip: to reach the correct entrance to Alcaidesa, take exit 124 from A7 and then follow signs to La Casita to enter the right entrance for directions as per picture of Parque Bomberos.
Overall great apartment, lots to do, great facilities. Would recommend.

The apartment was excellent; it directly overlooks one of the four swimming pools on the urbanization and has stunning views over the sea to Gibraltear (and Africa on a clear day). The apartment was spotlessly clean (even my wife, a hard woman to impress, gave it the thumbs up!) and the owners provided plenty of towels and linens.
Lots to do in the area; golf, waterparks, the beach, fantastic restaurants, etc. but you will definitely need a car.
I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.
