“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

Safe, clean complex in stunning location. Excellent facilities safe fenced pools. Within walking distance of shops and beach. A relaxing time without the worry of wondering if the children were safe. We'll definitely be going again!

Booked a 2 bed through Holiday Lettings.co.uk (apartment 10285) and it was a fantastic apartment. Really well equipped with everything you might need and beautifully decorated. Great ground-floor location within the complex, right beside one of the 4 pools.

It's a very quiet complex with lovely gardens and it's very secure (security guard at the entrance.) Walking distance to the shopping area with large supermarket (Supersol) and smaller one with great bakery (Open Cor) and a variety of other shops and restaurants. The nearest beach is about a ten minute walk and there are several golf courses nearby. There's a regular bus service from the main road which will take you to Marbella on the one side or to Fuengirola on the other, if you don't wish to hire a car.

Los Jardines de Santa Maria Golf in Elviria is a lovely development, but is in the main a residential complex . It is hard to sum up and evaluate for a rating as it is not a hotel. Some of the owners rent out their apartments but there are a lot of owners who live there all the year round. The gardens are lovely, the pools are lovely and there is a very nice atmosphere. Anyone going on holiday there is expected to respect the rules of the complex as it is not a hotel ! i.e. no ball games (there isn't anything for children to do on site besides swimming in the pools) Elviria itself has very nice restaurants, is easy to get to most places from, is on a main bus route, and ideal for golf.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2008

los jardines de santa maria golf is in the upmarket resort of elviria. It is relatively new and has lovely gardens and 4 adults pools and 2 kids pools. It is walking distance to many amenities including 3 supermarkets, 3 hairdressers, several restaurants (chinese,italian,japanese,swedish and indian) and also a few smarter bars . The (infamous Nikki) beach is a 2 min drive or a 20 min walk, marbella/puerto banus are 20 mins drive away.
I loved how i never saw any stag/hen parties or any trouble in Elviria. The developement is a gated complex, i would definately book this trip again.

  • Liked — the lack of boozy brits behaving badly
  • Disliked — sunbeds get reserved early

As the previous poster warns, there is a huge and unsightly construction project facing these otherwise spacious apartments.

We spent 6 weeks recently in an apartment in Bloque 8, an apt under the management of Eralia Rentals (although we had rented directly from the owner).

Unfortunately, ten days before leaving someone entered our apartment with a key and made off with euros 3400 of uninsured personal property consisting of a computer, a cell phone, jewelry, some money and a suitcase. The only people with keys are the cleaning personnel of the mgmt/rental agency. Impossible to prove who entered although it is pretty obvious. As the thieves had a key the police were not willing to make any investigation, they only made out a report but useless to us as we had no home insurance as we were only short-term renters.

Moral of the story: if you rent from any agency that employs cleaning personnel who have access to keys, keep everything locked up same as you would in a hotel room.

Ideally suited to those who wish to drive from Malaga, perhaps golf, tour the area and stay in high quality apartments.Access to beach requires car as does shopping for more than a few items - too far to carry up steep hills.Private secure garage parking, security entrances- quiet area at Easter.BUT - most blocks now have a view of a construction project obscuring the opposite hillside, even Block 1 will be within range of the noise.In April it was obvious that the dust from cement mixers, lorries etc was blowing across the golf course towards the apartments, only the rain and Easter Holiday kept it at a minimum.
Observing the progress of the building operations it would be a fair guess to say that the work will continue during the summer months.
There will be apartments all along the upper slopes of the opposite hill where there was previously woodland. It is not likely to be a pleasant experience attempting to relax on the balconies of these apartments in the hot season , which is a great shame as they are very spacious and an obvious place to sunbathe.We enjoyed our week, but as we toured around and went to beaches we avoided the noise and distracting view: from Block 5 the cranes and work in progress filled the entire viewing width of the lounge glazed doors.
