This was one of the best experiences I've had renting a condo. The staff was excellent. Our first night we had an issue with our room having twin beds and it was resolved immediately. Javier and his colleagues did a great job being informative without trying to sell us on

Great resort with spectacular views everywhere you look. Staff is great. Very helpful with advice and help. We stayed in 2 units while there, both slightly different, but both very nice. Everything we needed for our 8 day holiday was there. There are stores and restaurants

Positive first: Location is great. Right be the sea and boardwalk to Mijas. Gardens are lovely and there is free parking. Doesn't get better than this. Negatives: Hotel charges a hefty EUR 45 fee for settling electricity consumption (you also pay for the electricity). Totally

Accommodations was fine but the extra costs for things that would be standard such as midweek clean and towel change is not suitable,opening times of the restaurant was very misleading as one advert said one thing and another said something else

Agree with other responses- higher B number apartments, especially one bedroom , have great sea views. There are resort maps you can request from McDonalds - they will email them to you.

There are more facilities and larger campus at Dona Lola . Both are near to sea and shops. Leila is smaller and has one restaurant, pool table and swimming pool

Dona Lola would get my vote for you. If you are going imminently check the seaside pool is back in operation. Sea views are however at a premium. Beach is a bit limited - you can find nice beaches with watersports less than 1 km along the boardwalk.

"Be aware the pavement stones in all of Europe can be slick compared to the US. Just be cautious on stairs."
"Ask for sea front although our sea view is very good considering we’re not on the front line."
"Some rooms have better views and if you can get two bathrooms it better with mor than two people."
"pool views are good, sea views are best though"
"Less noise from the highway close to the beach and towards the garden."
