Great Place to stay - this is our third year - we stay at the Carihuela Park Palace timeshare apartments. I just love walking around the back streets with the restaurants and the Spanish on a Sunday all out in the morning with the kids at the cafes. There is also a square where they all sit and the waiters all come out and serve them. It has some british bars dotted around but it is mostly Dutch orientated and I noticed no-one seems to have picked up on this. There are a lot of dutch bars and the dutch people stay in our apartments also. It is great for walking one way to Torremolonos and the other to Benalmadena where there is more going on and there is a 24 hour square and Irish bars if you want some night life. The beaches are just lovely and I have noticed a lot of painting going on around the back streets and no graffiti which you get sometimes in other resorts.

bit of a secret, we love it , we lived in spain for twelve years and always came down here, we are back in the uk now and still go there.
try miguels for a good atmosphere they have their own beach as well with the marbella style sunbeds, with curtains round.
great for cheap shoes and good fish restaurants, or just sit and people watch.
nice beach, good food, just lovely

Worth a walk up to this area, lovely little streets with restaurants and many shops. There is a beautiful little bakery up here with fresh cakes, bread, rolls and fruit. Worth a visit! Sorry I cannot think of the name :(
