"A stress free holiday"
Marina del Este is somewhere we'd always wanted to visit and we weren't disappointed, especially with the accommodation. This modern apartment is ideally set in a really lovely area not too far from some amazing places to visit, including La Herradura, Almunecar, Montril, all within a short drive. We were met by Rachel who introduced us the apartment which was immaculate, well fitted out with everything you could possibly need, three comfortable bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space and crisp newly laundered bedding, both bath and shower facilities with towels provided. The spacious sun terrace to the front enabled us to enjoy the early morning sun and the long balmy evenings, taking in the magnificent views. The pool was easily accessible from the front of the apartment and was well equipped with sun loungers and parasols.Being keen on art we enjoyed painting and sketching, visits to local galleries, and photographing the scenery, Local bars offering a tapas with every glass of beer purchased was a lovely surprise and the Marina del Este provided a variety of activities, bars and cafe all within walking distance of the apartment.
