The long sandy beach is well cared for, clean, soft and golden sand with sunbeds and parasols for rental. Max Beach Bar sits right on the beach at Riviera del Sol and offers a lovely view out to the sea.

"Excellent location to explore the Costa del Sol."
Lovely apartment with a large terrace to enjoy a beautiful sea view. Excellent base to explore the area. Close to Marbella and Puerto Banus, with lovely beaches on your doorstep. Highly recommend La Cala beach, and Cabo Pino beach.
All the essential facilities were nearby, with good choices of supermarkets, cafe's and restaurants (too many to mention).
The very friendly owners of the apartment had provided two folders containing detailed information of what you could do in the area, and places to visit. These were extremely useful.

"Lovely apartment. A home from home. Wi Fi is spot on."
I have just sent you a link from Trip Advisor asking you kindly to give our apartment a review. If you can spare a few minutes and do so, it will be much appreciated. If you want please copy and paste your comments as follow...
We have been holidaying on the Costa Del Sol/Golf for the past 10 years. We have stayed at many different apartments in various locations, from golf to sea views. Each one has had its plus & minus points, however this apartment has a lot of positive points and no negative points. The apartment was not over personal, but comfortable & clean. As professionals our lives at home are extremely busy, the last two weeks has been peaceful, relaxing and a total change. WIFI was a bonus, so we weren't too desert island.
Will be returning soon.
1 Mar 2014
Had a lovely stay and sunny weather. Used the terrace very often, very good it has a dinner table and lounge seat and sunbeds. Inside we appreciate the kitchen with everything to prepare a meal. Great bonus is the WIFI that works great! We had a rental car, but for some shopping the supermarket is nearby and you can walk there. Did a horse ride in Casares with "riding fun in the sun" you can even have a ride if you are a non-rider.
Had dinner @ Ginza. Teppanyaki table is fun and the food is fresh. Went to shopping mall La Canada and had lunch at Mr Wok. Good quality food and sushi. Also had dinner at the WOK in La Cala De Mijas, cosy ambiance, nice buffet, the food you can have wokked is very greasy, he uses a lot of olive oil.
To escape the dull, cold rainy weather (at home) this place/ apartment is wonderful. Visit the inland or just have a coffee (and brandy) @ Fuengirola in the sun.
Thanks Nayana for your warm welcome and the smooth communication by whatsapp or mail.

18. January to 15.February 2014
Arriving to Vista Hermosa we were welcomed by Nayana Adams and when we came to the apartment we felt us at home from day one.
The apartment are well furnished so we had no problem to relax during our 4 weeks stay
The terrazzo is perfect both for morning son and late afternoon son
The Wifi is a big plus because it was possible to connect the computer to the Samsung tv and in that way follow what happen at home in Denmark.
The location is perfect if you would like to go to Marbella or Fuengirola. 10 min and you are there.
Miraflores Golf club is very close (3 min) and very exiting.
No doubt we enjoyed our stay and will come back next Year just 8 weeks instead of 4 weeks
Thanks a lot

"The marvelous apartment on Costa del Sol"
We´ve been spending in Vista Hermosa our holidays in early September. It was really a nice time to come to Costa del Sol and I and my husband had an unforgettable experience. To a great extant it was thanks to our very right choice of the apartment to stay.
While describing Vila Hermosa, perfect location of the apartment first of all should be mentioned. It is located in Riviera del Sol quite close to the sea (it only took us about 10 minutes of a pleasant walk with a nice park on our way to get to the beach). Moreover, there were no problems with some basic shopping (like water, bread, etc.) as a supermarket was also on our way to the beach. The beach itself at this time of the year was just perfect: not crowded, clean and with very nice view over the sea cliffs and the distant ship sailing to Malaga and back. The sea shelf was very comfortable to start swimming, no stones or something under your feet. And we had long and heavenly pleasant swims all day long without even thinking of trying some other more famous beaches which were also in quite short distance by car or by bus.
But after a whole day of active swimming and sunbathing you have a great need to come back to something like your sweet home. And Vista Hermosa is well tiled for the need. The apartment is nit and tidy. The furniture is comfortable and the whole design is very carefully thought over revealing good taste of the owners. Furthermore, you can feel that this property was originally planned to live comfortably in, not just to let it for the tourists. The kitchen should be particularly mentioned. Being keen on cooking I appreciated very much that the kitchen was not a nominal addition but a well-organized fully functional room, equipped with all the basic things you need to prepare a nice meal (including even 2 good culinary books on Spanish cuisine).
So we had every chance to create romantic atmosphere for our after-sea evenings and nights. We cooked together and then enjoyed a Spanish style fish or sea food supper on the broad terrace with a marvelous look over the sea. The candle lights and the south stars and the young moon all helped us to forget anything in the world except for us being along with all this beauty...
So it´s not surprising that we never happened to use the seemingly good TV set with a range of English speaking channels as well as hardly used Wi-Fi of a good speed. Nor did we visited any restaurants in the vicinity, may be because didn´t quite like any of them.
What also should be mentioned is that we in our happy loneliness didn´t happen to suffer from any noizy or unpleasant neighbors. In fact we almost didn´t see them which is a rare thing during the seaside holiday, I suppose.
And last but not least, the owners appeared very nice and helpful people! The apartment was ready for us in time, we were provided with all the possible instructions and when we needed something, they were right ready to help in a most efficient way.
The only thing we might call a dislike during our stay was the choice of fruit, vegetables and fish in the local supermarket. We went to Fuengirola to buy it 3 times during our 10 days´ stay (a good thing that the fridge in Vista Hermosa was big and cold enough to room all our purchases). But definitely this is a slight disadvantage only for such a picky housewife as I am. Anyway Fuengirola is also a nice place to visit with an easy and quick bus access.
To finish with we only want to say thank you for Robin and Nayana for our best of the best holidays and highly recommend the apartment for those seeking calm, romantic and comfortable rest on Costa del Sol.

"A great place to top up your tan and catch up with your reading"
Ideally located in a small gated community only a 5 minute walk from a range of eateries and bars. Its hillside position with large south facing balcony offers great views over the roofs of surrounding properties out to the sea below. The grounds of the small complex were very clean, tidy and plants well tended. When we visited it was very quiet and peaceful and we had a fantastic holiday.

I stayed at this apartment over a long weekend with a friend, we were looking for some sun and a relaxing weekend away which is what we got. The apartment is lovely, clean and well maintained and also seemed very safe and secure. It's about a 10 minute walk downhill to shops and restaurants and then over the main road to the beach. Just remember the walk back is uphill so don't buy lots of heavy things such as watermelon, which is the mistake that we made! There is a balcony which the sun shines on from early morning and the apartment has everything you could need. We even had a bottle of wine left for us which went down well on our first night. Would definitely stay again.
