“Great holiday apartment”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My wife and I stayed at Don Juan at the beginning of July. Transfer from the airport to the apartment on the C1 train couldn't have been simpler, as were the numerous short journeys we made during our stay. At the apartment we were met by a lovely lady who showed us the spacious accommodation. She also recommended a restaurante in nearby Los Boliches called
"El Rio", it was so good we ate there three times. Only negative was the tempremental wifi, but we managed . The steep hill upto the apartments, mentioned in other reviews was a bit of a chore especially in the heat, but well worth the climb.

“Unexpectedly lovely place”

Quite simply the photographs do not do the apartment or its location justice. It was our first family visit to Spain and this apartment (backed up by helpful service from Paul and Lee) made the whole thing a breeze.

We reached Carvajal very easily by train from Malaga airport and in seven days fitted in two trips to the city, visits to the Bioparc, up the cable car, out to Mijas, swam in the pool, swam in the sea and ate excellent tapas more than once!..... and all without any need of a car.

The apartment itself in furnished very well and feels more like a holiday home than a tourist let, the area is very quiet so you can enjoy the distant sound of the waves lapping the shore from the balcony of an evening without lots of other background noise. If that makes it sound isloated then a walk of 10 minutes really does get you to the train station where you never have to wait more than 20 minutes for modern, clean, efficient public transport to a variety of other destinations.

Thoroughly recommend considering this apartment to anyone who doesn't mind a steep but relatively short hill (and there's no rush to climb it as you are on holiday after all and you can use the walk to spot basking lizards).

“Really lovely apartment”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment was lovely- spacious rooms with a large balcony. It was exceptionally clean and had all of the amenities that you would expect plus more such as a CD player and access to WiFi. The pool area was very clean and well maintained was never overcrowded even in July.

Carvajal train station is a five minute walk away and yes the hill to the apartments is steep but manageable. The beach is a ten minute walk away and there are good fish restaurants nearby.

Overall we all had a great stay Paul and the property manager Lee were a pleasure to deal with. I would stay here again.

Liked best: Spaciousness of apartment

“Well equipped, spacious & comfortable - not your usual holiday apartment!”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stayed at Paul's for 1 week in September - apartment is big with lovely size balcony. Really nicely furnished with all the comforts of home. Letted apartments can be basic and a bit sparce but not this one! Everything you could want in kitchen, decent TV system, CD player, towels, comfy furnishings in & outside.

Grounds & pool area very clean & well maintained. Under 10 min walk to station & sea front. As for the hill - yes there is a bit of a steep one (about 3 mins) I've thought about how to describe it and it was fine for me (fit & 40) but my dad (fit & 65) would probably struggle a bit.

The lady that met us was so lovely and helpful. She got our holiday off to a great start. Overall loved the apartment and quiet area. Would most certainly recommend to anyone.
