We have just returned from a fabulous time in El Faro Apartments. The apartment was one of the best we've stayed in. It is spacious, spotlessly clean, well furnished and comfortable.The location is brilliant, being so close to a huge variety of bars and restaurants in the marina area, and the enormous beach is just a 2 minute walk away. Just a pleasant 10 minute walk along the promenade into the town will take you to the picturesque old part of the town where you can find cosy secluded squares to enjoy a cold drink and meal and watch the world go by. For the teenagers, there's the night time concerts and entertainment on the promenade, or, the favourite haunt for our two, the ice cream parlours across the way. If exploring the area is also of interest, Estepona is ideally placed to visit Gibraltar, Marbella and many pretty villages. Our only niggle, and it is just a minor point, is the pool area being closed from 3 to 5pm, just when you want to jump into it after a day out exploring. We would definitely recommend El Faro apartments and return in the future.

Our 21 day trip started with the flight from Canada to Iceland then spent the night in Holland I was a little leary of booking a condo on line however we booked a winner, Carl was very gracious and gave as much information as he could provide. The Apartment is located in the Estepona Harbour and there is lots of activity. 1st the apartment was a pleasent surprise clean and nicely decorated. The people in the area are mostly English and also very pleasent. The weather wasn't so hot but we could still walk around with T's on. The local bus was free to take to the downtown area however it's not a long walk and is nice to take the stroll. Across from the apartment there is a bull ring which is now a museum. The bars in the Harbour are also good a little more expensive than in the town but the food was good. There is a little bakery downstairs from the hotel which sell pastries and fresh bread daily (Yummy). There is also busses from downtown that will take you to Gibraltor this was a great trip that we made on William & Kates Wedding day and they were also celebrating in Lord Nelsons bar. Round trip was about 15.00 Euros could be less I really don't remember but worth it. We also mfrequented Cristol Beach a walk from the apartment but was much nicer than the beach from the Boulavard and the bar there makes some meaaaan drinks (after 2 a don't remember leaving and my girlfriend got burnt to a crisp) When we were getting ready to leave for Holland Carls cleaning Lady came to return our deposit and advised that Carl was staying in his other apartment we would have liked to meet up with him (maybe next time).
