We stayed in Calanova in September and would thoroughly recommend the apartment to friends and family. Views from the apartment over the golf course and pools were great, it was a pleasure to have breakfast and lunch there each day.
You definitely need a car for the apartments as it would be too far to walk into La Cala which is a nice town, with the motorway you have easy access to all of the coastal resorts.
We spent most days at the pool and at the most there was 4 other people there, so very peaceful and tranquil.
Its worth the trip, only 20 mins or so into Mijas, lovely town, there was a festival there when we visited and the atmosphere was lovely, great tapas bars and very picturesque.
The apartments are very spacious and would easily accommodate a family with two large bedrooms and plenty of living space, we were pleasantly surprised.
I wouldn't hesitate to return to these apartments for a relaxing break in the sunshine more
