We chose Calahonda as we needed a sunny break after a busy Summer with disappointing weather at home and we new this part of Costa del Sol would meet our needs. The apartment is well located and has local shops and restaurants to satisfy all requirements. The apartment was ideal for us and the balcony with a BBQ overlooking beautiful gardens and an excellent pool was a great feature.
The apartment is close enough to the beach with excellent facilities for swimming and beach restaurants which was perfect at the time of our stay but I imagine would be rather busy in high season.
Parking at the apartment is challenging even at the time of lower occupancy of the complex. The apartment needs improved specific information as the only documentation was generic for Calahonda from the local agent. There are no loungers for the the pool area and it is therefore difficult to get the benefit of this ideal area.
We had a problem with the key to the apartment block which needs to be addressed and were without the advertised international TV channels for the first 4 days of our 9 day stay.
We would stay here again but only out of high season.
Lovely apartment with beautiful gardens and pool area, plenty of places to sit in the gardens or on the large balcony with lovely sea views. The loungers were very comfortable and on some evenings we enjoyed dinner on the balcony. There are restaurants and a mini market on the doorstep and it was lovely just to pop down to get fresh croissants for breakfast or baguette for lunch. The larger supermarkets are only 10 minutes walk and very well stocked. The apartment is very comfortable and had everything we needed, we were very pleased to find one with a king size bed as we have one at home and always like to try and find an apartment that has one. We travelled by public transport, train from Malaga airport to Fuengirola then a bus to Calahonda and about 10 minutes walk to apartment, we did notice there were taxis waiting where we got off the bus in Calahonda but we decided to walk. The journey from the airport to the apartment was so easy and the buses and train journey very inexpensive and with all amenities on the doorstep we didn't need a car. We caught the bus into Fuengirola for one day and then onto Malaga city on the train for another day. The other way on the bus takes you to Marbella. Would highly recommend the apartment and the whole area. Would definitely give it 5 stars and look forward to returning.
