Stayed fof 8 nights in January.
Very nice apartment with great views over the sea, up the coast towards Estepona and back to the mountains inland. The view to the south is a little spoilt by some very unforgiving development on the hill tops just to the south. The apartment had everything you needed - two terraces including a wonderful roof terrace with built in barbeque which worked very well. Living room was roomy with comfortable furniture. Good WiFi, TV had the basic Uk channels. Bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds, bathrooms a bit tight for space but adequate. Kitchen was large with everything you would need for cooking, laundry, etc. Not a lot of downside really - one thing that was a little annoying was the height of the windows & balcony walls off the ground - meant that you really had to stand to see the view, esp from inside where we spent more time given it was in winter. Not a big problem really. The Hidalgos complex in which the apartment block is situated is pleasant and well maintained with pool and some surrounding greenery.
For visiting in the cooler months the area south of Duquesa has some long stretches of beach that are great for walking and relatively undeveloped. There are lots of trails up the hills behind - would recommend the loop walk up the valley behind Caceres (beautiful white Andalucian town) to the Sierra Crestellina - start from the trail info board in Caceres just across the road from Laura Bar/restaurant - this is just one of lots of options for all levels of fitness. Didn't find Duquesa/Sabinillas that inspiring (at least not in the winter time) but the attractive town of Estepona is only a short drive away and a visit to Gibralter just down the road is always interesting. Cadiz/Jerez are well worth a visit and reachable for a day trip - toll free motorway all the way.
Overall would recommend the apartment as a good base for exploring the area.
From the moment we booked this apartment, for my 30th birthday and wedding anniversary celebrations, Helene has been fantastic. The apartment was clean and comfortable, the views were outstanding. The private roof terrace was a perfect quiet place to catch some rays.We loved our stay here.
We spent a relaxing 15 nights here in June/July 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed the numerous bars and restaurants down on the coast and inland, too. The swimming pool was excellent; the private roof terrace was even better. Nice, too, to have air conditioning when needed.
Great spacious flat very well equipped
Rooftop was fantastic
Thouroughly recommend it
Transfer del Sol was brilliant as well and drivers were very friendly and helpful
This was our second stay at this wonderful rooftop apartment and once again we were not disappointed. The location is excellent and within easy reach of bars and restaurants in Duquesa Port or a little further afield in Estepona.
The property is within a gated complex with ample parking. There is also a lift up to the property.
The apartment is light, airy and spacious with everything you need for your stay.
The rooftop terrace is an added bonus for all day sun and fabulous views. We were hoping to stay again in September but someone has beaten us to the slot so my advice is if you are reading this and your time slot is available....book it....before someone else does.
We are now planning our stay in 2018.
