R256 Puerto Paraiso
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Cosy one bedroom apartment situated in a very popular urbanisation overlooking Estepona Port. Convenient for all the bars and restaurants of the port area and just 10 minutes walk along the newly landscaped and paved Promenade to Estepona Old Town with it's lovely picturesque streets so car hire is not necessary to see all the local sites.
Estepona is a little more traditional and Spanish than some of the other resorts on the Costa del Sol and enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean climate all year round with bright sunny days for most of the year. Gibraltar is 45 minutes by car, the mountain town of Ronda and the lovely village of Mijas are just 60 minutes. The spectacular town of Granada and the Sierra Nevada ski area are also within a couple of hours drive.
Estepona has an excellent beach and promenade and a stroll round the old town is a definite “must”. A local market is held every Wednesday on the outskirts of town and a local artisans market takes place in Estepona Port on a Sunday morning.

The Andalucia region
The Costa de Sol can be divided into two sections, with Malaga city at its centre. The eastern Costa del Sol is much shorter, stretching from the provincial capital as far as Nerja, where it meets the Costa Tropical of Granada province.
The western Costa de Sol is the section of coast which curves round southwards towards Gibraltar, and includes all the major resorts such as Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, plus of course, the ritzy celeb-magnet of Marbella. This section has a very international feel, with visitors and residents from all over the world.
But if you're coming to the coast on holiday, don't miss Malaga city, which has reinvented itself in recent years as a cultural and gastronomic centre. It has an unparalleled offering of museums, including the Picasso Museum, a buzzing contemporary arts scene, and top-class tapas bars and restaurants.
Estepona is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer season. It's located on the western side of the Costa del Sol, next to Marbella and San Pedro. The name of Estepona comes from the cult to the Goddess Epona by the Celts, later on the Romans added the “Est” to designate this localization.

Padrón Beach:Many facilities such as locker rooms, facilities for disabled, showers, health care and a couple of bars with sunbeds and pedalos area.

"Excellent location, small but spacious"
We stayed at the apartment at the end of March 2014. Had no problems receiving the keys as the office of the property manager was a few steps from the apartment, down at the Port.
Apartment itself was as advertised. As we spent most of the time outside we hadn't much of expectations about it, but it was still a nice place to spend time at.
Better location would be hard to find, I even had the fear that there might be a lot of noise, especially in the evenings, as the bars are all crowded at the weekends at the port area but , thankfully , things were not so bad , and our night sleep was peaceful .
The balcony faces toward the sunrise and there's sun til about 2 P.M., but in the afternoon, however the sun does not shine there anymore. Nevertheless, the nearest beach is about 10 minutes walk away for those who needs sunshine to enjoy.
Closed in terrace can be transformed into another bedroom and there's an extra bed that makes it possible to build a double-bed - a great option for 4 member family for example.
The kitchen was very small , while bathroom pleasantly spacious.
Good balance between cost and quality . And certainly extra plus points for a location.
