Had an amazing family holiday in this apartment. Everything for self catering holiday was provided. Apartment very clean and homely and right on promenade. Owners very attentive and accommodating from start to finish. Would definitely book again and recommend to anyone. Well worth the money.

Management response:

It was a pleasure having you as our guest. We hope you'll come back and stay again soon. Philip

Great apartment, good views. Clean, roomy for 2 people. Great location, you can walk to main town, old town and buses or taxi's to Porto Bonus. Weather was great too. The only thing we found was the sea was very dirty with seaweed and freezing cold. Sunbeds to rent on beach quite expensive 12 euro's for 2 beds and brolly....

Management response:

Thank you for your comments, Cindy and thanks also for your kind words about our apartment. It is true that the Skol Building gets very busy in July and August - it is a victim of its own popularity and the sunbed problem is something the organisation is working on. Perhaps it's revelant to mention that In the Western Med...

From booking to departure they were extremely reliable, polite and very helpful, they are not just renting their apartment, they are sharing a home away from home to ensure you have a wonderful relaxing holiday. I say this because of the little things they...

About the neighbourhood
The Old Town offers walking, shopping and eating. It is typically Andalusian with its Moorish walls, old churches and town square ringed with orange trees. It has been well maintained and is within walking distance of the flat. There are lots of open-air restaurants in and around the town square.
Marbella's beaches and palm tree-lined promenade are just outside the garden gate as you can see from our photo 'Marbella'. The gate of the complex gives on to the seafront walk. The promenade now extends all the way to Puerto Banus (approx. 5 kilometers) and is a very pleasant walk. You can catch a boat back to the harbour adjacent to the apartment building (cost around 5 euros).
The beaches in front of Skol feature freshwater showers, sunbeds and a little farther along, beachside ba...
