We stayed in Balcones del Chaparell for a week in mid September and we totally agree with the previous review - It is a really beautiful apartment! Spotlessly clean, nicely decorated and with everything you need. The apartment is in a great location just a few minutes walk to the beach, there are some restaurants nearby too and La Cala is a pleasant walk away - there is also a regular bus into La Cala/Marbella which we took a few of times.
The sea view from the garden and conservatory is real plus - a perfect place to have your breakfast or relax in the evening. The complex has a relaxed and quiet atmosphere with two swimming pools - there were some loungers in the flat which we took down to the pool. The owners were extremely helpful - leaving clear instructions on how to work things in the flat and were responsive to a couple of queries.
All in all an excellent holiday - we are looking forward to a return visit! more
