"Perfect choice for touring and relaxing in the sun"
We were looking for an independent holiday, with some local support and some insider knowledge. The apartment location and the owner's professionalism made this beachfront Rocas del Mar Apartment the perfect choice. From quick and efficient booking arrangements to onsite restaurant and local information sent before we departed we were well set up to spend the rest of our holiday relaxing and exploring.
The apartment was very clean, perfectly equipped and well laid out, with a great view out to sea and up and down the coast. The pool was quiet and the we enjoyed the afternoon sun as the kids enjoyed the water.
This is a lovely part of Spain and we made the most of the mountains and the coast. Lots of lovely villages to visit, markets and restaurants. The weather was great for Oct and glad we only had a 3 hour flight from Edin to find some "winter" sun. We hired a car at Malaga airport and although not really required as a regular bus service runs by the appartments, it was just as affordable as 2 taxis to and from the airport. There were 2 supermarkets in Riviera Del Sol and restaurants, our favourite was Mamma Nostras all only a short walk. Everyone we met were very helpful and even let us try out our Spanish which the kids loved. We had lunch everyday at the Garden Bar where the staff were very very helpful and we used the free wifi which was fantastic to check out other local things going on.
We would definately go back to this appartment again and would recommend it to anyone looking for an independent break away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger resorts.

"A real gem - Rocas Del Mar - a great place to escape from it all and chill-out right by the sea."
The owner was on the ball - communications were extremely prompt and arrangements well executed. The apt was very easy to find, thanks to the clear directions provided by the owner. The apt itself was clean and tidy and roomy enough for a family of four. All the essential hardware that a guest would require to run a home were provided. When at home, day or night, the balcony was THE place to be - a really great sea-view complete with the sound of the waves - magical. The complex was extremely well maintained. The pools were very clean and looked inviting but alas the water was not yet warm enough to take the plunge. The on-site restaurant served-up excellent, great value food that could be eaten at tables in the garden overlooking the sea. A stairway from the garden leads directly to the beach - great place for a stroll. The restaurant staff were always very helpful and attentive. Don't miss the chance to dine here. You can also buy your wi-fi access card here too. There are also many other restaurants and several supermarkets within a comfortable 5-10 min walking range. Recommended day trips out by car are to Gibraltar [Approx 1 hour 30 mins away] and Granada [Approx 2 hours away] to visit the Alhambra. Would have really liked to have made it to North Africa - another time maybe!
