“Stunning Apartments - Wonderful Location”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

First of all the negatives....The SKOL apartment blocks are old and desperately in need of updating/renovating. The public areas, reception etc. are crying out for work to modernise, freshen up and remove the pervading damp smell.

Appreciating that we visited at peak time we were still disappointed that there were not enough sun beds for all the guests. The results were that you had to join a long queue at 9:30 (Strange given that the office wasn't supposed to open until that time) in order to secure beds in the pool area.

Right, onto the positives.......The apartments (222/224) are absolutely fabulous! Gillie has furnished them tastefully and with great care. Every need is catered for including the beds and bedding which deserve a special mention. Excellent quality mattresses and bedding to match to ensure a really comfortable nights sleep. We took the adjoining apartments so that our 18 year old daughter and her friend could enjoy a little independence and privacy from us. This worked really well.

Overall, the apartments were truly a joy to stay in and rate them as 5 STARS..

The location of the SKOL apartments has been well covered by other reviewers. In a word - OUTSTANDING. I am not sure there is anywhere in Marbella to match it. We were going to hire a car but decided against it because of the parking which can be a problem. Good move.... Unless you are considering day trips out there is absolutely no need for a car. The beach, shops, marina, old town and an overwhelming selection of restaurants and bars are all on your doorstep.

Overall these are beautiful apartments in the best of locations and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to all ages.

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed 16 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fantastic experience from booking through to check out...

Gillie communicates quickly throughout the booking process and provides all the information you will need to ensure your holiday goes as smoothly as possible. Key pick up was as simple as confirming the booking with reception.

The apartment is delightfully appointed, with excellent facilities throughout. Bathrooms are particularly well decorated and the whole apartment was spotless when we arrived. Kitchen is all you need for a self catering holiday, if like, us you don't intend to be eating dinner in the apartment every night. There's a fridge, kettle, toaster, two hobs, microwave and convection oven, plus all the utensils you could need. Even bigger plus was the dishwasher - I know I don't want to wash up on holiday!

Balcony is perfectly placed for the morning sun - wonderful furniture to sit on and even a view of the sea!

Bedroom is cosy - but perfectly big enough for us and lots of storage in the bedroom for the (far too many) clothes we brought with us.

Apartment is in the Skol block - two excellent swimming pools with one adult only. Two euros per day for a sun bed, which are plentiful.

Location is excellent too - right bar Marbella's harbour with the various bars. Ten minutes walk to Marbella Old Town with it's wonderful shops and restaurants.

Overall, this was the best holiday apartment my wife and I have stayed in - if we come back to Marbella, we will definitely stay here again.

“Fantastic beach front location”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I booked the apartment for a 4 night stay with 4 friends. On arrival the keys were available as described and though it was late (12.00) we still managed to have a great meal around the corner at Da Bruno. The only disappointment on arrival was that the description indicated 3 bedrooms but in fact there were only 2 and one of the lounges had a day bed. The 3 showers were a big bonus though as 3 girls sharing meant there were no queues for the bathroom. Day one was a 1 minute walk to the beach where we had great service and wifi on our sun beds at Los Tres Pepe. Lunch was BBQ fish and the service was fab.
From the apartment a short walk to a taxi around the corner and a 10 Euro cab ride gets you to Porta Banus which is a fantastic night out.
We had a fantastic meal in a restaraunt in Old Town Marbella, I wish I could remember the name!!!! All in all we had a fantastic holiday and a great base camp, what more could you ask for?

Management Response
25 Jul 2014
As described in our Holiday Lettings advert, when the two apartments are "linked" together by opening the internal double doors, 222c living room becomes the "third" double bedroom with en suite shower, loo and wash basin. This "third" bedroom is approached by a short corridor from the main living room in 224c. I hope in future there will be no misunderstanding.

So reluctant to write this review as I want to be able to return whenever I can without it being already booked up but credit where credit is due! These apartments are just fab, we were on a girls holiday all late twenties/ early thirties- we rented both apartments and everything about this was ideal! Tastefully furnished, well equipped, a lovely friendly helpful owner, beautiful pool and gardens, lovely neighbours, beach on doorstep and reasonably priced- what more can you ask! Teeny tiny gripe we had was lack of loo roll with it being four girls sharing but most certainly wouldn't put in off returning, infact we have said we may make it an annual trip. Thanks so much!!

Second time at this apartment and a great holiday again, fantastic location a lovely settee on the balcony to relax on read or have a glass of wine looking over the gardens and sea. It was ideal as my brother stayed in the next apartment which has a interconnecting door giving us a great size apartment.

“A very nice apartment, ideal location and very relaxing”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

I recently hired 222 and 224 for my friend & I as we stayed for 2 weeks in November. We had an absolutely fabulous time and the apartments were ideal, meaning that we each had our own space but could open the door between the two.

The location is superb, right by the beach (I could always hear the sea lapping against the beach which was very relaxing), and just off the main high street - far away enough to be quiet and not hear the traffic but only a few hundred yards up the road. So all the shops and the Old Town are only a few minute walk away, perfect. Each evening you would see a lovely sunset either from the balcony or if you left the grounds you are right on the coastal promenade.

The keys were easy to collect at reception and so we just picked them up and made our way to the apartments.

The pools were being used while I was there as it was still nice and warm during the day (20-25 degrees) but there was never any intrusive noise, just nice and quiet with the birds singing in the trees.

The apartments themselves were both clean, comfy and exactly as described on the website. Good bathrooms and good water pressure in the shower too :)

All the reception staff were very helpful, especially Jon Reed (who helps manage the properties) as he quickly supplied me some more towels after high winds blew them off the balcony! There is a taxi rank more or less outside the reception which is very handy if you need to get somewhere further away to some of the big shopping centres - I went to Court Inglais & Las Cañadas a few times where I brought some fab clothes, must remember to leave half my suitcase empty next time!

In terms of eating there is so much choice, and the places recommended by the owner were all really good. We also liked La Reds for seafood (down on the seafront, turn right after Da Bruna and it's 200 yards down on the beach), La Pesquera (in the old town, turn off the main street by the 24 hours pharmacy), Da Bruna is great and very handy, and finally Zozoi where we ate on the last night. It's in the Old Town, and I think it's on Trip Advisor as there are signs advertising the fact as you go in. Small inside, and a bit more modern, the food is very well presented and a little different to most places with a bit of a fusion - I really liked it.

All in all a very relaxing stay, topped by the fact that we had fab weather (sun most days) and I would definitely recommend it and would go again - ideal.
