Say goodbye to the typical dreadful internet connection in Spain which started to become almost unusable, particularly if you wanted to do some work while on holiday. There is also now free wifi around the pool, so you will never be out of touch..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Apartment was very positive surprise even you told that it is nice. Beds were really good which is very important if you stay a longer time. Location, PERFECT! Garden was beautiful and pool area with the services really worked. If I come to Puerto BanusB again, this is the place where I want to stay : ) The information package what the owner sent us was more than practical and we used it a lot.

A beautiful apartment in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

This is a spacious, comfortable apartment with everything you could need, set within a beautifully maintained and managed complex. An excellent location for a family of five with three teenagers and it felt very safe and secure. The beach is a two minute walk, a very large supermarket a five minute walk and the harbour also a five minute walk. It was quiet at night within the complex for a great nights sleep. The apartment has excellent air conditioning and a kitchen with every appliance you could need. There is a lovely poolside restaurant with reasonable prices and delicious food. The pool staff were very kind and attentive. I would highly recommend this amazing apartment and dealings with the owners Rod and Suze were at all times professional and courteous. Thank you both for renting your property to us and we would love to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As they say Location Location Location. In the 30 odd years that we have been going to Puerto Banus we have only ever hired a car once to go exploring into the mountains. Otherwise everything is within very easy walking distance, beach, shops, restaurants, supermarket, Puerto Banus yachting harbour, night clubs, hospital, all 5 minutes walk away, and still be within your 5 acres of tropical gardens. If you are feeling really energetic you can always hire a bicycle (or electric bike, etc ) and cycle along the sea path to Marbella every morning like my wife. With a 24 hour reception, they can always call a taxi, which arrives within minutes. Even Cortes Ingles, the huge local department store will delivery your groceries to your door for free.

An Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a super apartment from which you can enjoy everything the Costa del Sol has to offer. The apartment itself is very well stocked with all you need for a good vacation. It is superbly located within walking distance of excellent shopping facilities as well as good restaurants in Puerto Banus. The walk along the path by the sea {just threee minutes from the apartment} to the centre of Marbella is something to enjoy, on a daily basis, if you like. We would walk there, about 6 km, have lunch, and walk back by which time you can have a cocktail on the beach in Puert Banus. This was our second time in this apartment, 4 weeks in 2016 and 6 weeks in 2017, We are going back again in 2019, maybe for 8 weeks !

Lovely apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this apartment regularly over the past few years. Our stay this time was for 3 weeks and everything was as special as usual - a real home from home.The apartment is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Clean and well maintained. It is set within amazing gardens and pool area (recently refurbished).The owners respond very quickly to any queries you may have and the reception staff are extremely helpful and efficient. Beaches and other amenities are a short easy stroll away. During our visits friends and family who have joined us always comment how lovely, relaxing and cosy Treetops is and can't wait to visit again. We are so impressed we cannot seem to stay away!

Stunning property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the property. It’s in a great location, very spacious, clean and looks stunning. The owners obviously take great pride and care. Never had a problem, but with the correspondence I’ve had with the owners, I’m sure if anything was to arise it would be dealt with very swiftly.

It’s very quiet and being on the top floor has wonderful views across the gardens.

The balcony is perfect in that you get the sun in the morning, are protected from the sun at the hottest part of the day and then it comes back late afternoon into the evening. Great for a refreshing pre-dinner drink......or drinks!

The pool and the poolside cafe are also great. The beach is only a couple of minutes walk away and the many bars, restaurants and shops of Puerto Banus are also very walkable. We always use the rear entrance and walk along the seafront as we find it a nicer walk.

Can’t recommend this property enough. Just wish it was mine!!

Fabulous decor and well equipped

Would gladly have stayed longer than the 4 weeks. It was a home away from home. We will be back.

Owner's Response: Pleased to hear that you had a lovely time, and liked the apartment. We must have done something right if it felt like home away from home, exactly what we feel. We look forward to seeing you again in the hopefully near future. Best Wishes Rod Versluys

Car: not necessary

The apartment truly must be in the most perfect location, set in a tropical paradise of award winning gardens and yet only 5 minutes walk from the world famous Puerto Banus, with its vast selection of shops, restaurants, clubs and boats! A place to be seen and also to people watch! Just 3 minutes to the golden beaches that stretch for miles in each direction, walk the promenade all the way to Marbella town, stop at a tapas bar along the way, enjoy the water sports on offer at numerous locations. The tennis club is just out side Alcazaba, it has flood lit courts during the summer months. The golf courses in the area are legendary, but you can also drive into the mountain to ski or visit ancient sites, Take a trip to Gibraltar or a ferry to Tangier.

- La Alcazaba

What sets The Alcazaba Development apart from all others on the coast, apart from it having the oldest and most established gardens, is its proximity to everything. In the last 20 years of going to Alcazaba, we have never had to hire a car. This is probably because I am one of those lazy types who spends most of his time either lolling by the pool, walking on the beach, or in the Port, all of which are a few minutes walk from the apartment.

- Puerto Banus 5 minutes walk away..

Puerto Banus a shoppers paradise, from top of the range designers to the more humdrum, or if you can't find what you are looking for in the port, there is always Corte Ingles (the equivalent to Selfridges in London), again only a few minutes walk away. With everything under the sun, including a supermarket the size of two football pitches, with its wet fish, meat, fresh vegetable section, delicatessen, bakery.... the list goes on and on, and if you don't feel like hauling your shopping back to the flat, don't worry there are plenty of taxis available for about £5-6, or you can use their free delivery service is you spend more than £100. Remember to take your id with you if you are paying by credit card.

- Restaurants

Whether you are looking for a cheap meal out at Jacks American Brasserie serving pizza's and hamburgers, or are in the mood to really push the boat out, Puerto Banus has every conceivable restaurant type for you, from the Finest French / Swedish Cuisine at Los Bandidos, Wonderful traditional Greek / Lebanese food at The Red pepper, Superb Indian at Khans, Sushi at Sushi Banus, you really will be spoilt for choice, there are literally 100's of restuarants to choose from. Those mentioned are our favourites and have been around for the last 20 years which really says something about the quality of their food, and what a pleasant experience it is going there.. We have recently discovered a wonderful Thai restaurant called Naga, right next door to Cortez Ingles on the other side of The Cristamar Shopping Centre which you walk past going to the port.

- Night Clubs

Puerto Banus certainly is the place to party with many clubs staying open almost the whole night. Probably one of the most famous bars in the port is Sinatra's which is at the top of the port right on the water front overlooking the large gin palace boats.

Once you are well oiled, there are a whole host of clubs and piano bars in the next street behind... too numerous to mention. Hope you have a great time...and don't indulge too much.
