As per the majority of the other reviews, we stayed at the club la costa for one week.
The accommodation was very good we had a large living room and separate kitchen, upstairs two bedrooms and bathroom, excellent sea views and our own large terrace with table and chairs and two sun loungers. The resort was very clean and the staffs were very helpful.
We have 2 children aged 12 and 14 who enjoyed the dedicated heated pools and shared pool by Zackary’s bar. Plus plenty for the kids to do , Pool , table tennis ,Air Hockey " still have the bruised fingers", tennis, 5 a side footie pitch and much more.
There is a truely Spanish restaraunt virtually on site, which has Spanish Flamenco dancing on a friday evening and different entertainment all week , we enjoyed a trip over there in the evenings for a quite drink and to watch all of the Horses.
Horses: you can go on a trek thru the countyside / back roads, on beautifully kept horses , they have different shapes and sizes to match everyone, so you must have a go , a brilliant experience. cost 24E each, pricey but fun.
The restaurants on site are a bit pricey ,but he quality is good.
The evening entertainment was mixed but if you get a chance to see "MICHELLE JANE " she is a true professional , she had a list of approx. 144 artists " which she said was not her full repertoire " and could sing various tracks from each artist .... Amazing, a very good singer too.
She did all this with Two toddlers dancing around her feet and she kept them entertained as well.
MJ also does a Film night where she sings the great songs from "millions " of films in the SUNSET bar, which is a cashless bar , just the opportunity to spend spend spend on your room number and pay when you check out... dangerous :).
A trip to Fuengirola costs 10E in the taxi, a bit pricey considering its 10mins walk along the sea front and you miss the BIKINI BAR ,which is a lovely bar on the beach, which serves good food and cold beer, you can sit on the beach or inside in the shade and feed the sparrows by hand. Cool!
Fuengirola at first view looks very tacky, I agree it does look that way , if you stay on the sea front , but if you walk on a few hundred yards towards the Marina then turn inland, there is a beautiful Square with the church at one end "Parroquia Nuestra Señora del Rosario".
Around this small area you have a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere , restaurants , Moroccan Shops , Fashion Shops etc etc all in the side streets. Worth a trip but don’t take your credit card :)
Overall a clean place to visit, with good food and plenty to do for all ages.
only down side . As part of a promotion week we had to attend a presentation on joining clc.
We were obliged as part of the promotion to attend a "short " presentation with clc, we were told would last a morning , which is acceptable and probably interesting ,but was in fact a 09:15 start and returned to the apartment at 16:15.
I had done my research and the web site had said they would be trying to sell me an apartment, which to be honest we could really go for, but instead it was the new timeshare “Points” which was definitely Not what we wanted. The sales pitch is very good and well directed with the manager drifting by to reduce the price if they see you are stalling .
My only advice is start with a very low number when they ask “ How much do you spend on Accommodation Only" , for Holidays
The next 6-7 hours is based on that figure , and watch for the 5% inflation on the standard number s but not on the POINTs numbers all good fun.
I have tried to cover areas missed in previous review so I hope this helps.
