The Costa del Sol is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Its miles of beautiful sandy beaches and fantastic weather which have kept tourists flocking back year after year to resorts like Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Marbella.
The Costa del Sol caters for young and old alike, offering a host of entertainment choices for the native and visitor alike. The coast boasts one of the highest concentrations of world class golf courses, to the extent that it is often dubbed "The Costa del Golf".
For families there are theme parks, including water parks, go-karting, safari parks and many beautiful public gardens. For younger visitors the main areas of attraction are Benalmadenas Puerto Marina & 24 hour square and Marbellas Puerto Banus.

The areas infrastructure is well organized with the new Autopista del Sol providing access from Malaga to Estepona and beyond to Gibraltar. The old N340 coast road is a little slower but offers some lovely sea views as it winds its way along the coast.

"Shocked at good reviews"
This apartment is in a very rundown building and in a very poor situation. The apartment interior is extremely small - even for a studio - and extremely claustrophobic. The small balcony overlooks a… More
All I can say is please read all the reviews this guest has left for other places that she has stayed at. The president at the apartment block takes pride in his work and gives a 24 hour service. I do not know what this guest expected. I received an email demanding money back or I would not get the keys back. I was in the UK and had to arrange the lock to be changed at the end of the week as I did not trust this person who did eventually leave the keys but I had to protect future guests. The studio is exactly as shown on the photo's and as written in the description. There is no alley with smelly rubbish. Please see the photos. Below us are ground floor apartments. I asked my previous guests, a lady with her 3 grandchildren who stays every summer for a few weeks and she had not seen any insects. I asked the guests who stayed after the unhappy person and they had seen nothing and were shocked at the review.
To give one star for the beds?? These mattresses were very carefully chosen and are among the best that you can buy. So baffled by this review. I actually thought she had been given a key for the wrong studio. The studio is exactly as described on the advert and is cleaned by our management company.

i am a lone grandparent with 3 grandchildren in my care. i have been going to the same area in spain for the past 6yrs, and would like to say that the studio is excellent. the best that we have stayed in. it is right were we wanted to be in the gamanol area. the pools are brilliant for the children, and very safe. i found that the garden around the pool area was absolutley lovely, nice and shady for my baby grandson, and a nice place to relax. will definatly book for next year.

"Very pleased with the apartment"
Stayed in the apartment with two friends in late May/early June, apartment was just big enough for three girls and offered everything we needed, very clean and tidy on arrival and after contacting Beverley we were allowed to enter as soon as our flight arrived which was very handy! Apartment located in a nice area, only a short walk to the beach and shops/restaurants etc as well as cheap taxi's located a 2 minute walk from the apartment if needed! Receptionists' were also really helpful and spoke English which was a bonus, overall a really nice holiday would definately recommend the apartment!

"Very Good Location"
The apartment is very well located, about 6 mins walk to the train and around 8 mins to the beach. I was on my own most of the time and felt safe and secure in the block and the area. There is a very good internet shop on the way to Arroya. Just 1 Euro per hour and happy hour is between 3-6pm when it is half price! I initially booked for one month but extended my stay and was there for almost 7 weeks. Thank you Beverley for renting your studio to me. I would be happy to return again one day.
