A little piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in Alhambra del Mar with our two teenage children last August and cannot recommend it highly enough. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. We ate regularly on the veranda which is a beautiful private spot overlooking a small garden. The main gardens & pool area are immaculately kept and never too crowded. The location is perfect also, a short stroll to the seafront & beach with plenty of restaurants and activities to enjoy for all ages. Our hosts were a pleasure to deal at every level - overall a very positive experience, we would re-visit in a heartbeat!

Wonderful location, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming atmosphere, we were greeted by Ines and offered fruits. The apartment - with an intimate patio and small garden - and the whole complex are just perfect for a flawless summer vacation at the seaside :-) The apartment is decorated with taste, fully equipped and very well laid out. The gardens of the complex are beautiful (with water basins and small waterfalls, appropriate for the name of the complex - "Alhambra del Mar") and the swimming pool has plenty of space for both swimming and sunbathing.

The directions received from the owner to travel from the Malaga airport were very good, we reached the complex very easily.

Ines was also a great host, very professional and ready to help. We enjoyed meeting her and practising our Spanish (although she was, of course, fluent in English).

We visited Granada/Alhambra (you need to make reservations on line at least 1-2 weeks in advance, or otherwise arrive at Alhambra no later than 8:30 am - do not stay in line for cash purchases, instead go and buy tickets at the automated machines using your credit card), Malaga (the Feria de Agosto de Málaga was going on, with beautiful flamenco street dancing), Ronda (a spectacular mountain-perched little town, with a nicely-preserved old center; do not miss the Museo del bandolero) and Benahavis (20 min from Marbella, it has very good restaurants and nice strolls).

The seaside promenade from Alhambra del Mar toward Puerto Banus is very pleasant, especially after 7pm, with nice chiringuitos (there is also a promenade to the east of Marbella but that is more crowded and commercial) and places to rest and enjoy the view.

We had a wonderful time and we'll recommend the apartment to our friends and family.

We stayed ( a family of 4 with a baby and a toddler) at this apartment for 4 weeks in January 2014 and we can just say that it was one of the most positive vacation experiences we have had. The apartment has everything and can accommodate all of your needs, the location perfect and the owner with her "local crew" always there to solve any possible issues (fx. when the dishwasher broke down they replaced it with a new one within a couple of days!). All in all we had a great time and we are looking forward to visit again in the future.

Great place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful week at Alhambra del Mar. The apartment and setting exceeded our expectations. The apartment is very private, light and spacious. It is well equipped, emmaculate and very comfortable. We loved eating every meal on the verandah overlooking the beautiful topical gardens. The location is great. It is a short walk to the beach, good restaurants and supermarkets. It is not that much further to the Old Town, parks and playground. We wanted a truly relaxing, pool & beach style, car free holiday with our two young children and this was perfect. If you wanted to do more there are plenty of opportunities. I would highly recommend!

Lovely villa/beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

Very nice villa. Gorgeous gardens. Great veranda for eating at any time of the day. Peaceful ambience and a nice pool. Safe secure place, that's perfect for people with kids. 5 minutes from the beach, and a 20 minute walk (on a quite new promenade) to Marbella town. Well equipped for cooking, and very helpful staff who oversee the place

Alhambra del Mar Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Having been to the Alhambra del Mar on a number of previous occasions, in a different apartment, we knew exactly what to expect and again we were not disappointed. The location is superb, quiet, nice pool, lovely gardens, close to the beach, within walking distance of the town centre, marina, restaurants (both sea front and the main road), supermarkets so you dont need a car.

The apartment was comparable to others we have stayed in spacious, clean, dishwasher etc everything you could want and the arranged meeting with the maid to collect the keys, pay for the cleaning services and be shown around went smoothly.

10 days of bliss !

The mild climate makes Marbella all year round attractive. Average yearly temperature is 22C with 325 sunny days a year. Best location possible on the 'golden mile' of Marbella. Over the pedestrian boulevard you can walk to restaurants and shops easily and without a car. The old city center of Marbella, Casco Antiguo is a ten minute walk. Numerous beaches and sports activities are nearby. Shopping is great in Puerto Banus and Marbella. Jet set harbour Puerto Banus is 3 kilometres. Attractive cities to visit are Cádiz, Málaga, Sevilla, Córdoba, Gibraltar and Granada. Nice villages in the surroundings are Ronda, Mijas and Istán. Malaga international airport is 30 minutes by car. The apartment is in one of the most sought afer urbanisations of Marbella because of the proximity to the city, the beach and the price winning tropical gardens surrounding the houses in the urbanisation. 24 hour security, fenced and private parking space.


The weather in Marbella - Marbella is a cosmopolitan resort on the Costa del Sol in Andalusia. Marbella is located on the coast and sheltered by the Sierra Blanca Mountains, making it a highly favorable micro-climate. The sun shines on average 320 days a year. The summers are hot, but the sea always brings cool. In the summer it rains almost never. If it ever rains, it is usually in the period between November and March.


Rentals since 2005: Since 2005 we are renting out our apartment, and it has proved a succes. We are almost fully occupied whole year round! Some people are coming on a regular basis, others we see every now and then. We are always very happy when a guest has had a super holiday. You can read their reviews on this website as well under reviews. Of course now and then there are people with questions or small problems. We always try to communicate and interveign as soon as possible in order to not to let a frustration grow, you are only a few precious weeks on holiday! We are constantly improving the apartment (also thanks to your feedback) because we do love our own house as well! And we love to hear the feedback from people when they had a great holiday and want to come back immediately. We would be excited to welcome you in our green, tropical apartment...
