My wife and I and two friends have recently returned back from Apartment Gran Calahonda, which we have been returning to for a few years. The apartment is lovely and is ideally located for an easy walk to the immaculate supermarket across the road and a little further to the many bars and restaurants. We love Los Olivios the food is excellent and great value and anyone should give it a try. The many restaurants in El Zoco do cater mostly for the English tourist which we do appreciate. However different cuisines can be found further afield if you want them.
The apartment is set in Gran Calahonda complex which is impeccably kept the gardeners are out daily tending to its every need. The complex plus apartment security is second to non with electric gates and a guard around nightly, we feel very safe. The fact that the apartment is on the ground floor is what we love especially when you need to get out of the mid day sun. As you can just sit on the terrace and watch the others bake. If you have small children you have the added benefit of a lockable small gate to keep them safe.
The apartment itself is very well equip and has everything you need its well designed with air conditioning an added bonus plus ceiling fans that enable you to sleep well on those hot nights. It's location is very close to the largest of three swimming pools but not on top of it and all pools have a small children's pool attached, the attendant cleans the pools daily which is also good to see.
We don't do the beach but it is only a few minutes walk away but it's a natural beach so no sun beds for hire like others on the coast which you can drive to. The many markets along the coast are great which we taxi to however a new market in Calypso On Thursdays is walking distance which again is a bonus. We have booked again next year as for us its great and we love it.
