“A Wonderful Holiday Experience”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I traveled with 3 friends to Marbella for a wedding and stayed at the Skol apartments. The rental apartments are basic but have everything you would need to make your stay comfortable. The location is amazing as you are literally 2 minutes from the beach and within a 10 minute walk there are lots of bars and restaurants to visit.

We booked our apartments through Linglyn Travel and dealt with Daniela Derin who was very helpful with our arrangements. We had an issue with a laundry machine in one of units we rented and after we mentioned it to Daniela the next day a technician arrived to fix the machine.

I'm definitely going back to visit Marbella and would recommend Skol apartments and Daniela.

Approx. 20 members of my immediate and extended family stayed at the Skol apartments in June 2015. We were in Marbella for a family wedding. All members of the group were very happy with the location of and set up at the Skol apartments. My own apartment was perfect for my husband and our two children - large one bedroom, corner apartment with fantastic views of the sea on one side and the pool area at Skol on the other. Apartments do vary in size, set up, and views so it's important to chose your apartment carefully. There was also a good poolside café for food and drinks and there's an Irish pub - 'The Cladagh' - located at one corner of the complex with friendly staff and nightly live music. One of the exits from the Skol complex leads you directly out onto a wonderful beach promenade with lots of cafes, restaurants, shops etc and of course the beautiful beach itself.

This was the first time we have used a holiday rental as we have always stayed in hotels with a minimum of a 4 star rating. However we were very pleased with Skol, we chose a two bedroom apartment with 1.5 bathrooms a sitting room and separate kitchen. I truly enjoyed the freedom it afforded us, we could get up at whatever time we wished, for the first time I wasn't forcing everyone to get up early so that the maids could clean our room! We made brunch in the apartment most days and ate out every night in various restaurants. Skol had their own poolside snack bar the quality of which was second to none. On Fridays they served the most beautiful tempura battered fish and chips, whilst my son had a gorgeous club sandwich and a side of chips practically every day for lunch at a cost of 9 euros the food was plentiful at good prices, the manageress was so jolly and facilitating. The apartments also had 3 swimming pools, one of which could only be used by adults, this was great as adults could swim in peace without fear of being interrupted whilst the children could play and splash to their hearts content! The best thing about this apartment was the beachfront location and although we have nothing negative to report, I did however view some other apartments looking rather tired with furniture only suitable for a skip and walls badly in need of a new coat of paint. Therefore if you do decide to rent some stranger's apartment do your homework, ensure any photos are actually recent and book through an independent agent who you can talk to on the phone and will give good advise.

Good service on arrival - key ready early. Poor service experienced when condition of apartment was explained.
The condition of the apartment was appalling, totally unkempt and was not what you would expect for the price. To name a few examples: cracked ceiling, paint falling off, broken tiles, weeds growing on balcony, windows taped and stuffed with paper, black dirt particles blowing out of air conditioning, rusted rad, and vents dirty...
Location excellent and lovely view of the water. Loved the beach, restaurants and location. Unbelievably disappointed with the apartment which tainted our trip overall.

We are really sorry that M C did not fully enjoy her stay in one of our apartments. This is very unfortunate, as it will be seen from ALL the previous reviews, other clients have really enjoyed their stays in the Skol. In particular, the previous and subsequent clients in this apartment both expressed their enjoyment of their stay.

When M C arrived in this apartment, she identified some issues to the local management team, including a crack in the ceiling plasterwork in the mezzanine bedroom area and asked for an alternative apartment. Unfortunately, the only other available apartment had building works in progress in the next door apartment and would not have been suitable for M C's stay. The ceiling crack was checked by the maintenance department and established as a decorative issue. As such, things of a decorative nature can only be rectified properly when the apartment has no occupants. Other items identified by M C were addressed by the local management team. Following on from her departure from the apartment M C requested some recompense or would turn to Trip Advisor. A partial refund was offered as a gesture of goodwill, but was declined. We are really sorry that M C was less than completely satisfied with her stay on this occasion.

“Loved Marbella”
Reviewed 1 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed in apartmemt 737 B and could certainly recommend this apartment to anyone
We enjoyed the views out to the beach and we slept very well in the comfortable beds and excellent quality pillows something that is hard to get in a holiday apartment. We would have liked extra towels we stayed 8 nights and found that one bath towel and one hand towel each for 8 nights wasn't really enough I would have liked a few extra. Anyone booking with children would need to be aware that it is quite high up and the balcony did appear to be a little bit too open for small children I know i wouldn't take my lively grandchildren because of this but we definately would go back again ourselves.

We are delighted that Evelyn had an enjoyable holiday in the Skol and would return to Apt 737B. This apartment also has the benefit of it's own internet, enabling clients to keep up with things back home if needed. We look forward to welcoming Evelyn back again soon.
