Costa del Sol/Marbella apartments


I am going to Marbella with my boyfriend for a week in June and we are trying to book an apartment for the week. We are looking at 2 places and we are wanted to know if anyone knew anything about either complex. The first is in a small apartment in Miraflores resort and booking through a company called Vacasol. The second is in the development of La Reserva de Marbella(Phase 1).

Any insight would be great.

Thanks in advance!

Not heard of the La Reserva De Marbella but Miraflores is in the Sitio de Calahonda area which is about a 15-20 min drive from Marbella (its in between Fuengirola and Marbella). I've not stayed there but visit the area regularly. Miraflores is basically a timeshare resort with apartments that are rented out through various companies.There are, I think a couple of reviews on Miraflores but the individual apartments may not be reviewed.

Will you be hiring a car or be reliant on public transport and what sort of things are you looking to do. There are no clubs as such in the Miraflores area but there are several bars near by plus more up at the main strip in Calahonda. Heres' a link to a previous thread on Miraflores


Have a look at the reviews section of TA and see the reviews of both resorts.

The problem is that a rather large area is termed Marbella and it seems like they are both a long way out of Marbella, so unless you want to drive everywhere they are not ideal.

If you'd rather be in town, have a look at Skol Apts and the Aparthotel Puerta Azul next door. These are right in town, right on the beach and an easy walk everywhere.

We are renting a car so we dont mind driving. We more just wanted to know about the complexes themselves. We have no problem being about 20mins away from city centre as we just want a relaxing week by the pool and in the apartment so it is important to us that it is a nice development.

Thanks for your replies

La Reserva de Marbella is a development of residential apartments, some of which are rented out. It is in the district of Marbella between Cabopino marina and Elviria. It is close to the coast and nearer to Marbella than Miraflores, being some six miles to the east of Marbella Town. There is a lot to do in the area, although a car is advisable to get the best from the area.
