This timeshare resort is right off the manic A7 autovia coastal highway at the western end of Calahonda beach, just a few hundred metres from Puerto Cabopino. If you’re driving, you need to know that you can only access Leila Playa from the eastbound carriageway of the A7 and until you’re used to it, it’s definitely not the easiest of... More

Our apartment was a one bedroom sleeps 4 with a quite comfy Sofa Bed in the lounge area,a balcony with sea views but you must specify when booking because there... More

The hotel is nice, with clean spacious rooms, restaurant with a great view (although the paella we tried was very poor), good swimming pool, and with the beach (such warm water...) a few steps from the hotel. But... no free wi fi, we did not get a room with a view as said in the reservation, staff unwilling to satisfy... More

Spotless 2 bedroom with a lovely view of the water. Amazing sunlight and some coffee to make. We went food shopping and enjoyed our stay. The place looked brand new and was cleaned very nicely. We were afraid that RCI messed up our reservation but the hotel staff made sure we were taken care of. They even helped us set... More

We stayed with friends who have a time share here for 2 weeks. The staff we met were friendly and helpful especially Daniel the security guard. The resort is very well kept and the gardens this year were exceptional. The new board walk past the hotel makes it easier and more pleasant to get along the beach.
