Its capital, Malaga, and the city of Marbella are both cosmopolitan cities with great night life as well as cultural significance and attract the most tourists. It is a vast area with many different faces from the touristy beach towns like Marbella to the more traditional white washed villages of Mijas. The Costa del Sol doesn’t just posses good climate but it also has diversity. It is no wonder it is so popular with holiday makers.

A great day out is a visit to Gibraltar, (bring your passport) where you can take a tour of 'The Rock' and have close contact with the Apes. For the more adventurous, you can also take a day trip to Morocco on the fast Ferry from Algeciras. Also in the area are several beautiful villages, towns and cites. These include Casares , Benhavis, Ronda, Mijas, Selville and Granada to name but a few.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The resort is ideal - plenty of pools to lounge around and rarely did we have problems getting a sun lounger. Lots of shady places too. The Club staff are very friendly and the coffee gorgeous. Large flat screen TV in the lounge area to take in the Olympics and free wifi which was well used. A car is essential to get into Estepona and to shop at the numerous cheap supermarkets along the main road.

The apartment is ideally placed - just a few steps from the chiringuita and a split level pool. The garden is bigger than some and has lovely views. Air con very efficient. Bedrooms compact but with excellent storage, good size ensuite and shower room, couches comfy, tv reception fine, dvd player useful. Kitchen well equipped with fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave and dishwasher. Superb pizzas and pasta at restaurant near entrance to Albayt Resort. We had a great time and excellent value for money! Many thanks Tom.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I spent one month at this location.

The moment I entered Tom's appt. I felt very good

Elegant, cozy, clean.

Everything you need is there.

It's true you need a car, there are lots of things to visit.

I was very happy that almost three weeks of the November month I had the chance to lay in the sun at the beach.

Thank you for a lovely stay, it was great!

Lovely quiet, sunny stay in Estepona

  • 5 of 5

The appartment and location were just as described! A great setting with use of 5 pools, our own garden and choice of car parking. A short walk to a simple beach or 5 minutes to a longer stretch with ammenities. Facilities within the appartment were great - you couldn't want for anything! Thank you

Great apartment and a lovely resort perfect for young families.

  • 4 of 5

We've just returned from a two week stay at Tom's lovely apartment and I'm already missing it! The resort is quiet and perfect for families with young children. The pool is well kept and has a life guard which was good to see. The bar is perfect for meals when you don't feel like cooking or venturing very far. However, the apartment is fully equipped with everything you need for preparing meals.

We hired a car and the apartment is located in a great area for exploring - we visited the local beaches, marina, water park, zoo, castle ... as well as the towns of Marbella and Estepona. I would recommend hiring a car as there isn't much to see in the immediate vicinity of the complex and supermarkets are too far away to walk to.

The apartment accommodates five as we took my teenage nephew along too however the bathrooms could use hooks for towels and clothes. It would also be really useful to have more than one set of keys.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect base, lovely apartment, beautiful complex.

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place to stay to explore the Costa del Sol. This was perfect for my family of 2 young children. It has everything we need and more. I would highly recommend!! Everything about it was easy from booking to collecting keys. Lovely garden to relax in on a summers evening, the pool was very close and used by us every day, the apartment was spacious, comfortable and there was nothing we could ask for.
