The most prestigious development on the Costa del Sol.
This was our first time in the resort so we did not know of the area or where to stay local to the amenities.
Luckily we saw this on Home and Away, it gave all the information and description we required.
Apartment was minutes from the glorious beach and the glamorous marina.
The apartment itself offered everything we required for the perfect family holiday, it was truly a home from home.
The owners were a pleasure to deal with and made the booking process as simple as possible.
We loved our holiday and will definitely book again with the owners.
Background: I used to have an apartment at Riviera del Sol some 30 years ago (as bachelor). My family has been to several places in Marbella over the last years.
Our stay: This apartment fulfill our demand for comfort and space. Just a small detail: We are used to sunny balconies at home and missed that. The garden and surroundings are perfect. The weather, which is important on vacation, is the best in Europe. We were shopping in the area, had breakfasts, lunches and dinners at different restaurants every day on the beachside - good food and service. We also did some water-activities with high speed water scooters and bathing. Finally visited other areas using our rental car. High prices all over, but worth it. The area is clean and nice. My family look forward to visiting Puerto Banus again, hopefully next year at the same time.
The apartment is ideally located being, as it says in its description, in walking distance from restaurants, bars and the beach. The apartment itself is nicely furnished, roomy and modern. Although, to be honest, when were in the apartment we spent most of the time on the balcony. We found it slightly difficult to operate the TV (not that we wanted to watch it much) and couldn't find any instructions. Also, the addition of a juicer would have been nice to what is otherwise a fairly well equipped kitchen. A final point as far as the apartment is concerned is that I think wi-fi should be included in the price of the apartment. I didn't require it but it seems odd to charge for it nowadays when so many places provide free access.
The surrounding gardens are spacious, tranquil and well maintained. There seems to be a large staff of gardeners. There is a garden restaurant and bar which is good value and three pools. The amenity we really valued was the private, fob-operated gate to the beach. We used to go to the beach reasonably early in the morning in swimsuit and with towel and enjoy a dip on a deserted beach. There is a shower on the beach and a footwash back inside the gate. A hassle-free trip to the beach.
As stated, the apartment is centrally located with lots of amenities, but in a private complex, and the price you pay for that convenient location is the occasional nightclub noise until the early hours. But it wasn't hugely intrusive.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would go back. We have recommended it to friends
On arrival you're not quite sure what is behind the vast amount of apartments...it's like an oasis!! Beautiful gardens with three large pools, two excellent restaurants and always a nice spot for a G&T at the end of the day! There's a back gate to the beach and a side gate to Marina. The supermarket is a 5 min walk and pharmacy on your doorstep. The apartment was clean and well maintained.
We had a wonderful stay here.
The apartment was lovely and clean, brilliant location (on the beach front, and minutes from the Marina), and set in beautiful gardens.
Angela and Nael were very helpful. They sent lots of info about the resort, and very prompt with responses to queries.
Would definitely stay here again.
Our usual holidays are spent in rented apartments so I have a broad experience of what is available.
This is one of the best we have have rented.
It's a big complex but has three pools and beautifully kept gardens. Walk through the gardens and you're straight out not the beach.
The complex has a big underground car park with allocated spaces and a lift to the apartment.
Pretty much couldn't fault it.
As other reviewers have said the owners are helpful and provide lots of information regarding shopping etc.
