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.

We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday with us and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Just to let you know, electricity prices in Spain are very high and our intention when charging our guests is to merely break even. More

We have stayed here twice and are trying to get another fortnight for next year - 2015. The property is very well located though a bit tricky to access from the highway and if you are driving in from the airport, make sure you get off the AP7 tollway or you will find yourself having to pay to go all...

We own at this beautiful resort and consider ourselves immensely privileged. As a family we are delighted by the new boardwalk. We will soon be able to walk along the beach to cabopino and beyond and to the sister resort Dona Lola and the lovely restaurants close by, particularly Da Vinci's. Really worth a visit for the delicious pizza and... More

We have recently returned from a one week stay in a 3 bedroom apartment at the Leila Playa This is one of the best resorts that we have exchanged into. I was a little worried about the entrance/exit being straight on the motorway but as long as you take your time this was fine. There are a couple of shops/bars/restaurants... More

We spent many evenings watching the sun go down whilst sipping a cold beer on the beach. Wonderful location, peaceful and beautifully laid out grounds. The pool was busy but it was the height of summer.

We were in Appartment A9, a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, sleep 8 property, on two floors with fantastic views over the gardens & sea, facing south west, so getting the afternoon sun and sunsets. It was very spacious and had everything that you would need for your holiday, including beach/pool towels, bathrobes, washing up liquid, dishwasher powder, etc etc. There... More

The walkway was approved by the Town Hall and the Andalucian government with the idea of providing a continuous link between Marbella with Mijas Costa. A fence has been installed to limit access to the resort and we are studying the possibility of planting a hedge or something similar to give more privacy. Your comments about the restaurant have been... More
