This is our second stay here - see my other review from last year. I cannot believe that so few people have written reviews in the last 12 months!!!!!!
This place has it all, it is like staying in a private villa. Open the doors in the morning and you are greeted by the sound and sight of the sea. It is so quiet here that my wife and I whisper to one another because we don't want to shatter the peace.
The apartment has absolutely everything you could wish for, but most of all it has space, light and a view of the sea. If you want to self cater then you won't be short of anything, every mod con is there from juicer to coffee maker to microwave to dishwasher to freezer to corkscrew!!!!
If there is a downside it is the poor quality of the nearest supermarket which is very poorly stocked with regards to fresh meat or fish. Fresh fruit and veg is good but we don't happen to be vegetarians. There is an Opencor a short 5 mins drive away but even that is average. We only stayed a week otherwise we would have driven to the Carrefour Hypermarket in Feungirola.
Le Papillon restaurant is about 70 metres away and serves good, solid food. It isn't fine dining but it is excellent value for money. We ate here twice in the evening and had a drink here every lunchtime. Walk 30 minutes east (left) from the apartment and you will arrive at Cabopino where you will be able to get high quality food (bordering on fine dining, certainly gastro dining) at Hermosa. Alberts is also worth a visit although the menu is not extensive and is not quite in the same league as Hermosa. Cabopino is a small harbour and worth a visit in its own right.
Walk West (right out of the apartment) and you will reach the Beach House after about 15 minutes. This is definitely worth a visit for high quality food and wine. A bit pricey but worth pushing the bo out. Can be a bit breezy eating outside in May but you can eat inside. Also worth visiting for a drink at lunchtime if you want a change from Le Papillon.
We walked on the beach for two hours each day. There are lots of Chiringuitos in both directions but it is advisable to check these out on Tripadvisor before launching in. Some have very few reviews which is puzzling.
We will definitely return to this accommodation, it's facilities and location are excellent. We didn't venture to Marbella or Puerto Banus having visited them both on previous visits but if you did wish to go there it is about 7 kms drive.
We highly recommend Marbella Beach Resort.
