Yes there is some night time entertainment in the restaurant and there are lots of good, reasonably price restaurants in the area. You can, some with entertainment and quizes etc walk along the walkway into La Cala or Puerto Cabopino and across the road El Zoco also has some great restaurants too.

Agree with sdcole1961. If you really want to take it to the bone you can get the bus from just outside the resort for a few euros to Fuengirola but we always get a taxi then the train. Its a great clean service and the self service ticket machine at the station is a doddle to use.

Hi. We are timeshare owners at the resort of Dona Lola so can't help in your booking advice, but the apartment we have every year is a Martha appt. which is spacious with 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms and a great sea view. We always book separate flights and hire a car from the airport.

"There are a lot of steps on this resort so ask about accessibility before you book."
"If there are just 2 people ask for a Laura or Diana apartment (front-line)."
"The newer buildings as they dont have noisy security gates"
"Allocated room no choice given"
"Higher up floors, avoid ground floor in main blocks."
