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

Had a great visit at this "time share" property we were RCI customers that had a week at this resort. We had room B9 which was on the right hand side if you're facing the ocean. It is on the first floor with balcony (patio) entrance facing a road. The resort has a road on either side of it so... More

3 adults, 1 week. Timeshare through RCI (week 37). Saturday to Saturday. 3 bedroom apartment. So my family have a time share with RCI and we have stayed at all but one of the Macdonald resorts in Spain. This is one of my favourites as it is smaller. It's set up very well and in a good location. Overall they... More

Stayed here for a week and we had apartment b34 WOW what a view from the terrace. Staff are still very helpful and it's such a nice peaceful complex. Will be perfect once the walkway is complete to doña Lola and cabopino. Will be back next year.

This is a great resort in a fabulous location right on the beach in Calahonda which in itself is perfectly placed to visit many great places on the Costa del Sol. The amenities of the resort are excellent, comfortable apartment, perfectly maintained grounds and a super pool. Only a slight gripe, the wifi service was bit flaky and could be... More

What should have been a relaxing holiday for all was blighted by this. I would have trusted MacDonald to be a little better at their customer relations!! It was OK by me, bit... More

Stayed here with my wife and kids aged 9 and 12 for a week in late July 2014. Very helpful and friendly reception. The apartment had everything that we needed for our stay and was very clean. The beach was a 2 minute walk away and we had a lovely sea view from our room/balcony. Local restaurants are 20/30 min... More
