We usually holiday in Puerto Banus but this time decided to have a week in Estepona and a week in PB. This was our first visit to Estepona so lots of exploring to do.
This apartment in Punta Plata is beautiful. It literally is about 10 meters from the sea and the promenade is just being extended to the back of the apartment with a short path leading to it which will be open in the next couple of weeks.
It is well appointed with everything you would expect plus the creature comforts of satellite tv, uk channels and catch up services plus fast reliable broadband.
Behind the apartment is a large supermarket with a nice little cafe but it causes no noise issues and is an easy landmark for taxi drivers.
30 seconds on foot puts you on the main walk across the seafront which is beautiful. Within 15 minutes very slow wandering you are in the town, but to be fair, if you walk with purpose you're there in under 10 with lovely dining options right there. Half an hours walk across the promenade on the edge of the beach (completely flat) puts you at the marina which is the opposite side of the town so getting around is very easy and beautiful.
The owner was very helpful as was Pol the taxi driver (recommended by Eric the owner) who fetched and returned the keys on our behalf as part of the transfers which made life much easier for us. Pol was super reliable and reasonably priced, if you use him contact him via text or WhatsApp for the best results.
Sitting on the well equipped south facing balcony, myself under a parasol and my wife soaking up the full sun, whilst eating lunch watching and listening to the ocean lapping at the shore about 30 feet away was wonderful and totally relaxing. The apartment isn't massive, but plenty for a small family or definitely a couple, with a fantastic location, highly recommended.
We really can’t add much to the previous glowing reviews of this apartment’s well appointed facilities. The apartment is located at the extreme eastern end of the Estepona promenade at Punta Plata beach.
Although there is a large Carrefour located immediately behind the apartment complex, we were totally unaware of any noise from the car park, either when within the apartment or out on the balcony. The supermarket closes at 10:00 pm and the car park gates are locked.
A new raised wooden decking extension to the promenade was under construction, which passes in front of the apartment gardens, but does not impinge on the sea view or privacy of the apartment.
During our stay, we made daily use of the Blue Dolphin bar which charges 4 Euros per day for the hire of a sun bed. However, if you eat at the bar, the beds are free. We found the staff here both friendly and accommodating. Although the beach is sandy throughout, at this end of the beach beyond the waterline the surface shelves more steeply. There are concealed bolder like stones which can be unsettling when trying to enter or leave the water and water shoes are strongly recommended. We later discovered from Pol, the helpful, lively and extrovert driver who ferried us to and from the airport, that the beach is much better to the western end, from about the middle of the esplanade.
With a sea view and close to amenities this apartment has everything you need, it's close to the bus station too if you're planning to travel around.
Truly a front line location.
The apartment was clean, comfortable and extremely well equipped.
I would highly recommend.
The location is amazing only a 2 minute walk to the sea front and 5 minutes into Estepona itself all flat. The apartment was spotlessly clean the large very comfy bed with the fabulous view. It was great having the large supermarket at the back of the apartment but is was not noisy. Electric blinds to the windows.There is also a lift. The apartment had everything you needed for your stay. Pol the taxi driver picked us up and dropped us off at the airport if you are not hiring a car then certainly use him. Eric made the booking very easy and was quick to reply to any emails. We were there for Christmas and the weather was lovely. We plan to return later again this year.
