6 bedroom Almuñécar holiday villa rental with swimming pool
September 2018

Very nice house with generous surfaces both inside and outside in extremely hilly residential area. Very nice views, but hard to carry home food after action with all the ups and downs.

Plenty of space, great views, plenty of restrooms and showers. Different dining places to choose from. Many can live together without being "on" each other

4 bedroom villa rental in Almuñécar, Costa Tropical, with shared pool
August 2017

We arrived early, but we could leave our cases in the house while we went to do some shopping. The inside of the house was ideal, but the outside terrace hadn't been cleaned. The parasol was damaged and the base was broken, so it was unsafe to use. As commented in a previous review there are 40 steps down to the front door, so wouldn't be suitable for young children or less mobile adults. The infinity pool is probably a good 5-10 minute walk away and doesn't open until 12pm and you do need to arrive at 12 otherwise you won't get a sunbed. We didn't visit the other pool which is a bit further and is up a hill, so you probably need to use the car. It would've been helpful if there was more information about the villa and surrounding area e.g. pool locations, as we had to find them ourselves. This house was ideal to use as a base for visiting Granada, which takes about an hour in the car. We were happy with interior of the house, which had a fully equipped kitchen and lovely bedrooms, although there was a problem with the master bedroom door, as if it was closed it would sometimes lock, so we had find something to open the lock from outside the room, this didn't affect our stay and we just left the door ajar. We would stay here again, but only for a short stay, as the outside terrace was a disappointment.

4 bedroom villa rental in Almuñécar, Costa Tropical, with shared pool
September 2016

Prachtige omgeving, mooi huis met alles erop en eraan. Zeer goede bedden en uitstekend ingerichte keuken. Het enige probleem zat het in het feit dat je alles met de auto moet doen. Er is in de buurt helemaal niets, geen winkel o.i.d. Je bent dus verplicht om alles met de auto te doen.

4 bedroom villa rental in Almuñécar, Costa Tropical, with shared pool
July 2016

We had a really greate stay in the house with a very lovely view. The house is very well equipped with comfortable garden furniture, furniture in the house and very good beds. The kitchen is also so equipped that we could make food in the house with food from the local market. Everything in the house functioned perfectly. We were 3 generations (8 grown up) and the house was a good base for the stay in the nice and quiet urbanization. We will love to come back.

The house is clean and the views are amazing. The area was quiet and locals friendly. The local representative was very quick and helpful when we had a query. We would go again.

Villas in the Costa Tropical

Located in Granada Province, the picturesque Andalucian coast of the Costa Tropical is comprised of agricultural areas, small resort towns and authentic fishing villages. The N-340 motorway stretches along the entire region, to the southern coast of continental Spain, connecting all the coastal resorts along the way and making them easily accessible by road. The two closest airports are Malaga, which is Andalucia’s main airport, and Granada.

Unlike the landlocked provinces of Seville, Cordoba and Jaen, Granada's sea access is the sunny Costa Tropical, also known as the Costa de Granada or Costa Granadina. Boasting over 70km of coastline it is one of the quieter costas of Spain, known for its charming and idyllic way of life where you can experience untouched Andalucia. The family-friendly beach resorts are bathed by the warm brassy rays of the sun, one of which is charming Motril nestled in the heart of the comarca. The cobbled streets wind between the fishermen's cottages and whitewashed houses, where you'll find a scattering of bodegas, restaurants and tapas bars met by the sparkling coast and the warm Alboran Sea.

The Costa Tropical is very much a blend of two cultures, where Moorish architecture meets colourful Spanish customs. Some historic remnants go even further back in history with many ancient architectural sites still standing and open to the public, such as the Roman Aqueduct in Almunecar. Take a long scenic walk along the ancient structures of the Rio Verde valley, or a relaxing stroll down the winding paths of the fishing villages like Sitio de Calahonda and La Herradura before hitting the beach. If you fancy a change of scenery, the Costa Tropical is also the perfect base to explore neighbouring Costa del Sol and Costa de Almeria, putting you within easy reach of the national parks of the region, and opening the door to a world of outdoor activities and colourful fiestas.

Discover our wide range of holiday rentals in the Costa Tropical, with properties near the golden beaches, historic sites and national parks. There are several excellent golf courses nearby, as well as water parks like Aqua Trópic guaranteed a fun day out for the kids. For even more options, Almeria and Malaga are just around the corner.
