We are a family that are looking forward to some winter sun in October. After a lot of research we decided to book flights to Malaga and we have been looking at booking some accommodation in Nueva Andalucia near Puerto Banus. The reason we chose this area is because, the accommodation offers a heated pool (ideal for that time of the year), and it is near all the amenities, ie. 15 minutes walk from the beach/restaurants/shops and fast food places for the kids!
I have been reading a lot of negative reviews about how Puerto Banus has become a tacky resort and is not very nice especially in the evenings with drugs and prostitution amongst many things.
Although we don't intend to be out late at night with our kids as they are all under 8 years old, would you say we would be ok in the local area of Nueva Andalucia.
