“lovely apartment in great location”

We had a lovely week in this apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything that you need, although we never tried the cooker as there are so many lovely restaurants within walking distance. The location was perfect. We had a sea view and it was great to be able to sit out and eat our breakfast on the balcony on the days that it was warm enough to do so. We felt very safe as it is a gated complex and there is always a man on the gate. The underground car park was also very secure. Puerto de la Duqesa is a good base for touring. We visited Gibraltar,Ttariffa, Estepona, Marbella, Casares and Ronda. If you go to Gibraltar don't forget your passport or some photo ID, and bring sterling. You can pay for goods in Euros but better deal in sterling. Park in La Linear and walk into Gibraltar to avoid queues and then take the bus into centre. Then it is just a short walk to cablecar to see apes. Great view from the top of the rock, however, we would not rush back to Gibraltar as we found it very built up and more expensive than in Spain. Loved caseras(great tapas in restaurant near cemetery) and Ronda has some outstanding scenery. We hope to go back again next year

Very clean and spacious apartment. Amenities close by and walking distance to local town. Large balcony with ocean view, great for enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sun set.

The apartment was well located and the view from the balcony was lovely. Had all the necessary items for our stay. Could have done with DVD for a rainy day but otherwise well equipped. Plenty of good walks and bars and restaurants. Didn't try the pools as it was Nov but they looked inviting and the complex was very clean. Would use again.

My husband and I, and 2 boys aged 14 and 10, stayed here in April for 11 days. The apartment was very clean on arrival, and was very well equipped. It had wifi, a sea view and perfectly located to shops and restaurants , which were situated around the marina. Our 2 boys attended Soto Tennis Academy for 5 days, and was only about 10 minutes drive away, and was an ideal base. The apartment had underground parking, which was accessed with a garage door remote, and there was a lift from the garage basement to the apartment. The washing machine was ideal, as it meant we could travel light, and there was also an ironing board. We would have no hesitation in staying here again, absolutely perfect!! Many thanks to Michael, the apartment owner!

This appartment was exactly as we hoped it to be. Perfect view over the area, pools and the sea. The other appartments were far away and therefor you didn´t feel you were stirring at the other people, and the place was pretty quiet considering the amount of appartments.

The kitchen had what we needed (and we cook and eat all our meals in the appartment).

The pool was not too crowded and there were a life guard at all the 3 pools.

The Marina was perfect to visit and have a drink or an icecream. There were a lot to see and it was very charming.

The water in the sea was to cold to swimming - but there are other beaches with warmer water in the area, but you need a car.

The night we arrived, we wanted to use the GPS to go to the Key office, but the adresses people use in Spain does not exist in a GPS - så we had to use google maps to locate the area, and we found it. And the key was by the way in the box as promised :-) (the Key Office is never open - use the mobile phone).

Only problems was 1: that some appartments allowed dogs, and that they barked from morning to night., 2: the WIFI did not work until our last night in the place and 3: the cleaning was terrible when we arrived. The bed sheets were disgusting. But nice to have a washing machine :-)
