I have seen complaints earlier on the reviews complaining about this and it's ridiculous to complain about it because it's a 30 second walk up a small road.

There are a few apartments around a large pool with loads of sun loungers to go round. The apartments are set away from the main drag in Platanes so the apartments are really...

What can we say about our stay...it was spectacular! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the owners and staff of Marva were incredible! The studios were just the right size and exactly what you need when you are on this magical island. I would recommend these rooms to all my friends in the states!!! Thank you...

I am writing this review in support of the last review and the disgraceful response from the owners.
