This hotel was amazing! I stayed in a two bedroom apartment which featured a large living area with dining table and two sofas as well as a flat screen tv! The kitchen was equipped with everything we could have wanted and was brilliant for making lunch during the day!
The main bedroom was a large room with a double bed and tv which had an ensuite that featured two sinks, toilet, shower and a large bath! It was perfect!
The second bedroom was a little smaller and featured two single beds! A shower room with toilet was across from this bedroom!
There was loads of shelf and drawer space available for putting our clothes which was great!
The best thing was that we were on the ground floor and therefore could eat lunch on the patio and also were able to walk straight out and be at the pool!
A plus of the apartment block was that it was very secure in that you had to have a key card to get in to it so the pool was private and only for residents which was good! Also there was a safe in the room to put all valuables which gave me peice of mind when leaving the apartment during the day or at night!
The only problems I felt there was with the apartment was that we arrived much earlier in the day than the 5pm checkout and were told to come back in an hour and we should be let in to our room however it was not ready when we returned therefore after two more attempts to try to get out keys early we gave up and waited til 5 ( at which case our keys had been sitting ready and waiting for us)! Also the towels were changed half way through our week stay which I felt was not frequent enough considering you only got two towels each and this meant you had to repeat using towels which I feel was quite unhygienic!
The pool was really good there were loads of sun loungers and there was never a time when we could not get one! Also the pool had a deep end and a shallow part as well as a kids pool which meant there was something to suit everyone! The beach was only a 30 second walk from our apartment and sunbeds could be hired out to sunbathe on! The beach could do with a few touch ups to make it look better but all in all it was not a bad beach!
The Restaraunt which was associated with the hotel was across the road on the way to the beach called 'Le Pappillion' which we went to three nights because it was really good! It was slightly expensive but it was worth it and most nights we got three courses! Also when you are staying at these appointments you get 10% off your bill which is a really good perk and just another reason to eat at this Restaraunt! It is beautiful inside too although if you want to sit outside you must book that day or else you will be sat inside although either is nice but outside is just a bit more special!
There are two supermarkets near these apartments however we found the Chinese supermarket to be closer and just as good as the other one plus it done a good range of souvenirs and inflatables as well as bats and balls for the beach! It was also not very expensive which was good!
To go to Marbella it was about €20 in a taxi (20 mins) or €2 on the bus (35 mins)! The bus stop was located along the motorway on either side of the road and was only a ten minute walk to from the apartment! From Marbella you could get a bus to Peurta Banus which was about €1.30 and was a must go to location to see all the yauchts and expensive cars! It also had a great market on every night which was great for getting presents to bring home!
All in all I think this was an amazing apartment with an excellent swimming pool and beautiful location! The photographs and reviews do not do this place justice it was 5* and a must go to apartments!!
