As a group of golfers we have now stayed at the Matchroom three times in the past few years.
This is an RCI timeshare swap, all in all, a very good one in November. Each time we have stayed in one of the 3 b/room apartments, different ones, all good, clean, well maintained, with a view over the Mijas Lagos golf course and right next to the lower pool. We have rarely used the restaurant, but on the occasions we have, it is perfectly acceptable. The bar area is good, as is the beer.. The snooker room is very good, very under-used in November, which is a bonus. The pool/sauna and jacuzzi are much appreciated, after a hard day on the local courses (we walk!).
It takes a lot of courage to use the garage, the steepest slope ever seen, but once down there, it is handy for the apartment and very empty. The outside pools are usable, even in November, but not heated, it would appear. You need a car, as already stated. there are a couple a restaurants outside the complex, within easy walking distance (10 mins) La Morena ? near the motorway bridge, is excellent, as is El Golf, which is equally good, but considerably more expensive.
So, in conclusion, I'd say that the Matchroom is a great place to use as a base, to explore the local sites, like Mijas, Marbella, Puerto Banus and Gibraltar. Granada is do-able in a day. Last time we visited Seville, but best to stay there overnight, as it is a 2-3 hour drive.
