Crown Resorts Club Calahonda
Ranked #11 of 27 Hotels in Mijas
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stayed here for two weeks and absolutely loved it. The pool area was quiet and always kept spotless. The rooms had everything you needed and spotlessly clean. The ground to the hotel are stunning and kept to a very high standard and again very peaceful. The staff here are so friendly and cant do enough for you, especially the poolside staff they are a great crowd. we will be coming back in 2014.

Club Calahonda is, in my opinion, the pick of the bunch of the four Crown Resorts in the Mijas area of Spain just 40minutes south of Malaga by car. We were in a first floor three bedroom apartment which in theory was for up to eight people, two sleeping in the lounge on a bed-settee. Because we were four adults and three children under the age of ten we asked if all the children could be accommodated in one of the bedrooms. The staff of the place were brilliant and brought up a very nice folding bed which our nine year old grandson happily slept in for the two weeks.
The amenities on site were good with two main pools and one smaller childrens pool, tennis courts, games room with Table Tennis table, pool table and table football - we never had a problem getting the TT table - maybe others thought it was too hot to be in-doors!! A poolside cafe served snacks from 11.00am until 5.30pm and the cafe frappe was to die for.
The buildings themselves were interesting and clearly the architect wanted variety so that every window surround was different, evey balcony unique (our appartment had two balconies!)
The local beach was a fifteen minute walk away and had loungers and parasols for hire. 10 euros for two loungers and a parasol included two free drinks - excellent value.
A minibus was available to take folk to a bigger beach at two euros for the round trip door to door.
Our son-in-law hired a road bike fom near-by Marbella and spent most mornings in the surrounding countryside - beautiful I may add.
Just one word of caution - my wife and I hired a car (a very nice Fiat 500) through Jet2 from Goldcar. This was the cheapest deal but with it came a 2 hour queue to pick it up even though we had pre-paid. Hertz and Avis had much smaller queues and there was no one at all at Europcar.
It didn't spoil a great holiday and I could heartily recommend the resort.

Room Tip: Ask for a room, not on the ground floor, overlooking the big pool - not the childrens' pool.

We have 'owned' here for 22 years, when we first went the place was a bit shabby. Now, this place is 'home from home' and the quality of all the apartments puts a lot of 5* places to shame. We love coming down to Calahonda and cannot complain about any aspect of our regular holidays! You will not be disappointed...

Had a fabulous week's holiday at the Club Delta Mar, had a room overlooking the pool down the back, perfect for us and our guests. The rooms were nice and clean and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The resort is located close to the supermarket and restaurants about 5 minutes walk, and 10 minutes walk to the beach. Will definitely go there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the pool around.

We stayed here with apartments4u with our Tesco Clubcard and was a great holiday. We stayed for one week and had a ground floor 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the cold water pool (which was cold in October). However the other heated pool was also available. The hotel was clean and tidy and the rooms were large and well equipped with everything we needed. Two bathrooms were also very clean and spacious. The large LCD tv in the rooms also have DVD players and lots of UK channels. The area isn't great but we had a car (recommended) and spent most days out along the coast line which is easy to access and navigate. The restaurant/bar attached to the hotel provides reasonably priced food and drink.

We were looking for a cheap and cheerful getaway and this was the perfect answer!

We always stay at Club Delta Mar. However, we had a fantastic stay here. The apartment was clean, although furniture a bit dated compared to some of the apartments but realise the are refurbishing and it takes time.

Our room overlooked the heated pool which my 5 year old made good use of. The Lifeguard is a credit to the organisation. He was at Delta Mar when we were there at Easter.

The Animacion Team got the kids who were there involved in activities and our son even spent the rainy day a the kids club at Club Marbella which he enjoyed.

The Palm Tree with Tony and his staff is great food and fantastic value for money, the Mojito's are delicious.

We are very familiar with the area and we always have a car so know our way around the area. My husband always plays golf and we catch up with friends who are in the area at the same time. The men even went to the Malaga -v- AC Mikan game.

My only negative comment would be that we were there as a family and my parents too. My father is an owner and he requested a lower floor apartment when booking and we ended up in the top floor with no lift. They are fit, however their request did nit seem to be considered.

We stayed in a 2-bedroom 2-bathroom apartment at this resort for a week in September 2012. Overall, the location is OK, situated between Malaga and Marbella (closer to Marbella), but not ideal, if you would like to be right by the sea. We found that having a rented car was a huge plus, as the nicer beaches are not within walking distance. It was also much more convenient to drive to the supermarket and sightseeing places using our own transportation. Parking is free in the hotel lot and on the streets next to the property.
We had limited interaction with the staff, and everyone seemed very pleasant and courteous. All of our requests (for additional towels, etc.) were handled promptly. The pools are quite small, especially in comparison with the pools at Caribbean resorts, but there was plenty of space for everyone. The tennis court is in pretty good condition and is located right on premises, which was great!
The one big drawback is the lack of air conditioning and nets in the apartments. There are ceiling fans in every room and the air outside is typically fresh at night; however, leaving the windows and balcony doors open allowed mosquitos to get inside, as there are no nets to keep them away. Our daughter was badly bitten and developed an allergic reaction to the bites. So, the options are: keep the windows and doors closed and sleep in the stuffy rooms or open them and get bitten by the bugs...
