I write this review on our final day (for now) in the apartment having had a wonderful week in Duquesa. It's also important to note that as a couple my wife and I are pretty hard to please. Most holidays are spent in the same apartments along the coast in Nerja because it ticks all the right boxes. That's about to change as this has already become our new favourite place to stay.
The apartment is huge. WIth each of the two of the bedrooms more like a king size. The living area is also really big, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The kitchen is big enough to cook a family meal with top of the range appliances throughout.
The real bonus for us through has been in the balconies. The large L shaped balcony at the front overlooking the pool has a table for six and more than enough room to work, play or sunbathe. The long balcony at the back has another table for six, sunloungers and a brilliant view of the beach, castle and beyond.
The complex itself is well looked after, clean, secure but has a homely feel. There is obviously plenty of people who are owners or who return year after year. The pool is large and the area around it big enough for children to play when they aren't in the pool. Although the security guys ensure that there are no ball games or things to disturb those who just want to sunbathe.
Duquesa itself has a relaxed feel. The Port is more like a Marina. There are plenty of bars, cafes and cheap and cheerful restaurants. Amoung them are some gems such as the Bistro which serves as good a steak as you'll get anywhere.
A great place for a family holiday. Or a couple looking to relax during the day and eat and drink well in the evenings.
