Beach Apartment Marbella
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Beach apartment in Marbella
Suits beach lovers and sun worshippers who like the good things in life. This area is popular with Spanish holidaymakers and an international crowd of local residents and offers a different experience away from the more 'touristy' areas generally associated with the Costa del Sol.
Perfect for…. Couples, old and young, and young families.
Situated in Playa del Alicate in the El Rosario area of Marbella, the apartment is 50 metres from one of the best beaches on the coast and you can walk along it for miles – half an hour takes you to the famous Nikki Beach at Don Carlos hotel which will give you a taste of the Marbella good life.
On the doorstep are six excellent beach restaurants – Hippopotamus Beach that serves pizzas, burgers and salads all day, Los Canos, Las Flores and Las Sardinales which are well known fish/ more traditional beach restaurants, Bonos Beach which is great for cocktails at sunset, and the newest addition, South Beach which is open all year round, has a DJ play live at the weekends and serves modern cuisine and booze all day and night come summer.
About a 10 minute walk are the main amenities for the area – including bus stops, taxi rank, a good sized supermarket, bakery, tennis club, car rental and a handful more bars and restaurants (Italian, traditional Spanish and modern). Marbella is a five minute drive away – approx. 10 euros by taxi and definitely worth a visit. The famous Puerto Banus is a 20 minute drive and about 25 euros by cab.
For kids, pedaloes and canoes can be hired at Hippopotamus beach, there's a play park beside the area's main amenities, and Funny Beach, an amusement park with trampolines, bumper boats, go karts, jet skis, water skiing, bungees etc is less than five minutes by car. Aventura Amazonia in Elviria is a treetop adventure playground for over 6s.
The Costa del Sol is overflowing with award-winning golf courses too and Playa de Alicate is a great base for a golfing weekend/ holiday with easy access to all of the 40+ courses along the coastline.
Set in secure grounds with two swimming pools and green areas, the accommodation comprises a living/dining room with kitchen off, and a double bedroom with standard double bed. All rooms, apart from the internal bathroom, lead onto a large terrace equipped with a dining/ lounging area for outdoor eating/ lazing, and utility area with washing machine, iron and ironing board. The kitchen has oven, hob, fridge freezer. A dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle are also provided. Comfortable sofa bed in living room. There's a television and DVD player so bring along some films you want to catch up on, and a CD/ radio player has an MP3 function and works with a standard USB cable. Air con/ heating system should you need it. Travel cot and booster seat also provided for infants.
Towels, bedding and beach towels are provided.
Malaga is the nearest airport and it's only a 40 minute drive away. A car is not essential, but it is definitely useful and recommended if you plan to leave the beach and explore the surrounding area.
A taxi from the airport costs about 50 euros. There's also an airport bus to Marbella Bus Station www.malagaairport.eu/buses and a taxi to the apartment from the bus station is about 10euros.

I'm a big fan of Marbella but have grown out of the Puerto Banus experience, so this apartment, and location, was perfect. It sits just off one of the nicest beaches in Marbella and there's … More
