Location description from owner

The Costa del Sol region

The climate is due to its unique geographical situation, the annual average temperature is around 18.5º C, with 300 days of sunshine a year.

Mijas is a Costa del Sol town in Malaga, Spain that has 12 kilometers of coastline in which you'll find incredible beaches to enjoy the sun and the sea. It's dark sand beaches attract thousands of tourists each year. It has a great off of mountain and beach all in one.

Costa del Sol, "Costa del Golf” is a refrain you'll see and hear constantly when you come to the coast. The area is one of the world's golf meccas for good reason: There are now 43 golf courses over the main 60-mile stretch between San Roque and Málaga! Yes, that's rapidly approaching an average of one course per mile.

Along the coat of southern Spain you'll also find many restaurants specialized in Moroccan cuisine, Italian, Argentinian, Asian and many other international cuisines.

Sitio de Calahonda

The Calahonda / Dona Lola Gold Crown Beach Resort area

The Dona Lola resort offers an extremely extensive range of leisure facilities. The outdoor pool begins at a shallow end safe for youngsters, and then just meanders right alongside the sea for 270 feet and under 2 lovely white bridges before reaching the deep end. Dozens of loungers and umbrellas surround the pool, and it's a lovely place to relax, with the hypnotic sound of the waves lapping up the beach and against the rocky outcrops, providing snooze-inducing background music. There's an area around the pool for the youngsters to gather, with pool-tables. Our sheltered over 18's swimming pool offers a quieter facility at peak-times. It is heated by solar panels. The water temperature on my last visit in late November was 34 degrees.....very pleasent ! There are many more loungers & umbrellas here, and you're within easy reach of the bar / bistro in a lovely sun-trap amongst waterfalls & ponds.

Dona Lola is most certainly not short of bars and restaurants. There is the aforementioned bistro bar in the leisure centre, and the local beach bars, and within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment there are several more good-value bars & restaurants - including English, Hong Kong, Indian, Spanish and Mexican. There are dozens more restaurants and bars just across the main road, via convenient foot-bridge or underpass. Within a short driving distance there are theme restaurants at Cabopino, and more upmarket restaurants towards Marbella.

There is a very useful mini-market on the complex offering very reasonable prices on a large variety of produce, and a larger ones just across the main road.

There are tennis courts on the complex, and there are snooker tables, pool tables, and table-tennis tables in the indoor leisure centre. There are good places in the sea close by for snorkelling. On beaches within easy reach of the resort you can partake of water-skiing, jet-biking, sailing, and wind-surfing.

Dona Lola is very much a family resort, and as such children and teenagers are very well catered for. We have a children's club with a really nice Spanish events organiser called Curro. He keeps them well occupied with fun, frolicks, and sporty activities, such as 5-a-side football matches (both in & out of the water!) tennis, table-tennis & pool competitions, and beach-combing.

Our more mature guests are not forgotten. A great variety of free activities are arranged for you too ! These include less-energetic French Boules matches, just-as-energetic aqua-aerobics, paella-making demonstrations, wine-tasting sessions, and beach-walks to La Cala Market. There are free Spanish lessons, and free evening entertainment throughout the year. Curro was a botanist in an earlier life, and will teach you much about the local flora and fauna on his nature walks.

From Dona Lola you can walk along the beach for as long as you want in both directions. Walking right for thirty minutes will bring you to the attractive harbour village of Cabopino, with it's cheerful beach-bar, a few up-market restaurants, and a beautiful sandy beach. Walking left will take you to La Cala, a more typically Spanish sea-side fishing village, with another nice beach, and lots of bars and good-value restaurants. You'll pass beach-bars (or not, as the case may be !) within ten minutes in either direction. To return, you could jump on a bus if you don't fancy the walk back, or take a taxi. There's another nice walk DOWN from the hills above Calahonda, following river-beds & manicured golf-courses, to the beach between Cabopino and Dona Lola. How do you get up in the first place ? -well, by a road-train !

In short, there's everything on Dona Lola that you could possibly want from a Spanish holiday at whatever time of the year. And at risk of boring you with this fact, you really do not need a hire-car

“Rough Diamond - definately coming back!”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2015

I was a little nervous about my stay as the very nice owner (Geoff) advised me he'd only just purchased the property and hadn't been able to start the refurbishment. However, I needed aplace to stay at short notice and this fitted the bill. What a pleasant surprise!! whilst I agree with the owner; it does need some updating it is a positively delightful little find, the positioning is perfect, one row back from the beach with views of the sea from the sun terrace, which I'm hoping (when I stay in the height of summer) will be lovely and sheltered creating an ideal sunbathing spot! The main living/sleeping area is comfortable and bright, very clean and tidy, sofa bed a little uncomforatble but this is being replaced by a modern comfortable one very soon. The kitchen is small but very well equipped and even has a cooker - not that you need it as the restaurants and cafes on Dona Lola are excellent and you really are spoilt for choice; no need for me to cook! There is a small well equipped bright and extremely clean bathroom with a bath tub and shower, there's even a little washing machine for all my bikinis! The Dona Lola complex is amazing, its a gated community with a health club; indoor swimming pool (with aqua aerobic classes!), hot tub, gym, snooker/pool room. On site beauty therapist, adults only pool and the most amazing gated kids pool - its huge, with views over the beach, I can't wait to come back with my neice and nephew in the summer! As I previously mentioned there is an array of pubs, cafes and restaurants on site try Davinci's Italian, their food is excellent. There is a small english supermarket on site, and other Spanish ones close by just across the road, should you need supplies. I really enjoyed my imptromptu stay here but I do agree with the owner Geoff it needs some updating, which he assures me is happening very soon. Despite this I'm booking to come back in July as its a perfect little spot, comfortable, clean and safe for myself and children. I flew in to Malaga and was picked up by a taxi service with Paco (I think that was his name?) that Geoff advised me about; nice friendly guy, complete hassle free journey and I will use him again. Thank you so much Geoff we will be back!
