We stayed here for almost a month so became quite familiar with the area and liked it. The apartment is very compact but has been designed to work well and has everything you need. Katy the owner lives just upstairs so is right there if you have any questions or needs. The pool is salt water which is lovely, it can get busy with other guests as the rest of the complex seems to be holiday rentals too but to be expected in July/August the busiest time time in Marbella. You can walk to most places but a car is handy. We enjoyed our stay!
