"Recommended apartment, great location"
Just returned from 10 day stay in Costa Galera with my wife and 13 yr old son, rented two apartments from Greg as we were staying with friends in the next block.
The apartment is very clean, tidy and in a lovely location just 50 yards from one of 8/9 pools, and a two minute walk to the main "Chiringuito" pool bar, open from 1230 each day, food was good, nothing special.
The apartment comfortably sleeps 4 but would find it a little small for 6, the only criticism would be the outdoor space/terrace which is a little small, seats for 4 but in reality to sit 4 on the terrace is a little crowded, and no outdoor lighting.
These minor issues certainly weren't a problem, the resort/area/apartment were all great, we would return to the area and the apartment, Greg the owner could not have been more helpful, the onsite "Pitch and Putt" and driving range were a welcome addition, overall a great choice.

"Great place to stay"
I stayed here in oct/nov 2012 with my partner, my little girl aged six and my Dad. The appartment was very clean and spacious and had all the home comforts you could ever need plus more. Greg the owner was very friendly and helpful and is on hand for any needs or information. We had a great stay here and our only downfall was that it rained almost every day but we can't moan as still had a great time :-) Many thanks was great value for money and would definatly come back again.
Just wanted to say thankyou for choosing to stay in our apartment, & thankyou for the review. Hope to see you & the family again, warmest Regards Greg

"Enjoyed and would recommend"
I wanted somewhere to spend my birthday with husband and grown up children that was a home from home and this resort didn't disappoint . The apartment is clean open plan and just as advertised on the site. The pools are all a very short walk away and not over crowded.
The supermarket is a short drive away with a great range of food, wines, beers and spirits.
The beach is about five minutes walk away and is not commercialised or overcrowded.
The owner Greg lives on site and is very helpful and informative if you need any information about Estepona or surrounding resorts. The port of Estepona is very Spanish with lovely restaurants and vibrant bars and is short taxi ride away.
If you are looking for a quiet homely place with a Spanish feel then this is a great resort.

"Excellent family accommodation, close to pool, with garden"
We stayed here with 2 young children (8 & 4) and can heartily recommend it. The apartment has every comfort, is clean and modern and the underground parking is a real bonus in the heat of the spanish summer. Supermarket is 5 mins drive and Estepona town is a real spanish gem with authentic restaurants and bars. The shopping is also good.
There's a restaurant/pool bar on sit which is very good, 2 mins walk from the apartment and a lovely Italian at the start of the complex - 5 mins walk.
Greg, the owner, couldn't be more helpful and is just round the corner for any queries/questions/recommendations.
You will need a car to get groceries and sight see but the driving is easy along the AP7.
My only gripe is that there is no wifi (although 3G signal worked fine) but you can go into the port or the local McDonald's for free hotspots if you're a nerd like me! All in all we'd a lovely time and I've already recommended to a close friend who's looking for a good deal. Looking at the availability though I think she might be out of luck!

"Fantastic stay, couldn't have been better"
My husband and I have just returned from a fabulous stay.
It was great being greeted by the agent upon arrival who showed us around.
The apartment was extremely clean, and had all the amenities one could want from a holiday home. The bed was extremely comfy, much more so than any hotel or apartment i've stayed in previously!
Very lovely front and back gardens. TV with English channels.
30 second walk to the lovely landscaped pool, with plenty of sun loungers and parasols.
1 minute walk to the other lovely pool that had a pool bar and cafe.
No other shops within walking distance so car really is necessary. 10 minute drive from Estepona marina with a wide choice of restaurants.
We would definitely return to this apartment without hesitation.

"As advertised. No hidden skeletons."
Helpful owner lived on site and provided excellent communication pre arrival.
All rooms were clean, tidy and well presented.
Facilities were as described and without issue.
Site is out of town and a car is advised.
We encountered only one problem with a faulty door handle which was quickly remedied and without any fuss.
