What is there here? Some restaurants, some shops, flash cars and many 'posers' - I find this place tiresome. It's OK if you want to pose next to a Lambourghini and walk aimlessly along the marina. Stop in Picassos for lunch or dinner - food is good but overpriced. The beach is pretty rubbish here - much better to settle... More

Only go there when you want to "brag" you paid 300% more than items are worth. But SOME fools do that... who cares ? One who signs the check can spend their $$ anyway they select!.. Putin. To REALLY IMPRESS Folks ? - stand on a street corner and throw 20 or 50 euro notes in the air! THAT's IMPRESSIVE!... More

After a holiday here. I never looked back. 9 years later i still live here.. I was dazzled by the bling, the couture, the cars, People watching in the Puerto has become a pastime. There's a great climate here all year round. Although winter off season is a bit of a ghost town. For a quick drink the meeting place... More

It looks a bit like Cannes, Cote d'Azur, but it's more intimate, more fun. It is beautiful to walk at night in the harbour area. Absolutely must see!

This is the place to people watch, and to show off if you have a fancy car or a fancy figure. The marina frontage has swanky shops and restaurants, with prices to match. Go to the modern town square and surrounds for more down to earth prices, and plenty of interesting cafes and shops.

The Marina is a fun place to wander about and take in the truly expensive shops, cars , bar prices and boats! there are some good reasonably priced restaurants and some very expensive ones (Bandidos for example). If you can get in be prepared for a big spend. watch out for Sinatras bar at the end where you can spend... More

. Why do people come here? Because it's famous. Why do people come back here? Well, I come back because we have visitors who want to see it. But it just gets worse and worse. It's sleazy. It's crowded and unpleasant. It's over-priced. It's vulgar. It's not in any way typical of Spain or Andalucia. I admit that looking in... More
