The Andalucia region
With the Costa del Sol weather giving average annual temperatures of 18ºC and over 300 days of sunshine per year it isn't difficult to understand why it is one of Europe's top holiday destinations.
There are around 70 Costa del Sol golf courses on the "Costa del Golf" which can be played all year round as well as a whole range of other activities available such as sailing, scuba diving, horse riding, dolphin safaris, etc.
For the more adventurous you can also take a 15km trip across the Straits of Gibraltar to visit Tangier in Morocco
Costalita is centrally located. There are 2 beach bars within walking distance along the promenade. A 4 star hotel is next to the complex where you can enjoy a drink and use of their spa at a cost. There is also a tennis/padel club where you can enjoy good food and a drink whilst the children play in the play area (swings, slides etc).
This is owned by the 5* Villa Padierna hotel which is a couple of minutes away and famously known for Michelle Obama's recent stay. There are 2 local supermarkets and an indoor childrens soft play center which is useful for entertaining the children on days that the weather is not so good or even to keep them out of the sunlight for a few hours.
Below are some local areas which may be of interest.
The nearest village approx 10 minutes walk away, it’s very typically Spanish and has several pretty bars and good restaurants.
Nearest larger town, 3 minutes by car. Today San Pedro is a refreshingly unspoilt pueblo with an appeal all of its own.
Be sure to head for the central plaza here with its gracious parish church and surrounding narrow streets which are packed with intriguing small shops, sidewalk cafes and bars. Thursday is street market day with all the associated hustle and bustle; a veritable bargain shopper's paradise.
A pleasant walk is from the centre of town to the beachfront along the Avenida del Marques del Duero which is a particularly attractive wide avenue flanked by palm trees. And the modern wide promenade is ideal for continuing your stroll (or skateboarding!) with several excellent chiringuitos (beachside restaurants) specialising in fish dishes. Visit Bora Bora if only for a drink at the bar. It is one of the best beach clubs on the coast, with a superb restaurant and all the usual beach facilities, a tropical paradise.
San Pedro also has the last summer fair ( feria ) in Andalucia being in the second week in October.
Approx 5 minutes in a car. For the ultimate in coastal charisma it would be hard to beat Puerto Banus. This is the place to be pampered yachtside and watch the world go by or window shop at one of several of the world renowned fashion houses and boutiques. The port has grown considerably over the years and now includes a casino, commercial shopping centre, El Corte Ingles department store, marine observatory and a multi cinema with films shown in their original soundtrack. The nightlife is buzzing here with alfresco bars, piano clubs and discos which are open dusk until dawn
About 7 minutes by car. A walk throughthe old town and then along the wide promenade on the sea front are recommended. Both providing a variety of bars and restaurants for food and refreshments.
The Estepona Marina is situated at the west end of the seafront promenade. This is a very pleasant place for a stroll and there are some magnificent boats moored here. There are also a wide variety of excellent bars and restaurants, open both midday and in the evening while younger revelers can enjoy the late night disco bars. There is a popular tourist market here on a Sunday morning.
About 10 minutes drive away. Marbella has everything.
One of the prettiest places is the fabled 'Orange Square' which is located just off the main street in the older district and is also home to the 16th century town hall and tourist office where you can pick up a detailed map and visitor information. Expect to meet with stately buildings, small shops, art galleries, bars and bistros.
Be sure to explore the honeycomb of surrounding narrow streets where homes and shops intermingle to create the atmosphere of a small village, rather than a cosmopolitan town. There are numerous excellent restaurants to choose from.
There is also the La Alameda park where you can book your personal horse and carriage to travel in style or, if you prefer, stroll on towards the sea along the Avenida del Mar. This is arguably one of the most beautiful promenades on the costa, flanked by classy restaurants and bars.

"2 Weeks In Paradise - 2 Hours from London"
We stayed in this beautiful apartment for the first 2 weeks in April 2012. It was a spur of the moment decision to go away, and as we have a young daughter we didn't want to travel too far from the UK, as she tends to get bored easily.
The apartment is situated in a very exclusive, gated complex, around an hour by car from Malaga airport.
We picked our car up from the airport and travelled, pretty much on one main road the entire trip until we reached the complex.
The apartment has very spacious underground parking, and a lift which takes you up to your door.
Upon opening the door, I was stunned (as was the whole family) at the scale and size of the accommodation. The lounge area seems to stretch on for miles as you go through the front door, and is almost palatial in its decoration with marble floor and walls. The owners have furnished the apartment to an extremely high standard, befitting of such a beautiful residence – with satellite television (although this was hardly used due to the other activities on offer).
The 2 bedrooms/bathrooms are a very good size, and the 2 balconies are equipped with an excellent gas barbeque and lots of room for secluded sun bathing.
The communal pool is massive, and I am guessing that the majority of these apartments are holiday homes used very occasionally by the great and the good, as we had the entire pool to ourselves for the majority of our stay.
I would recommend getting a car for your trip, as there is lots to do in the surrounding countryside.
If you have young children, (or just a penchant for animals) I would the local zoo was a brilliant day out. It was reasonable priced for entrance (£15ish p/p) and could easily have taken 2 days to see everything it had to offer.
The apartment aside, easily the greatest asset of this wonderful property is its proximity to the beach. There is a private gate at the rear of the property which goes out on to the beach, and on a balmy evening it takes 5 minutes to walk along the beach to some magnificent beach-fronted restaurants.
The staff who maintain the property were extremely friendly, and helpful with suggestions of days out.
All, in all, the best holiday we have ever had, and we are looking forward to going back again.
