Lovely 2 bedroom apt, with main bathroom and separate shower room. Comfortable and clean, great balcony space off the living room and the pool was fantastic. There are lifts to all floors and the complex is very quiet. Good local restaurants nearby and further down more restaurants to choose from. Very close to Marbella and not too far from the airport.
