My husband and I arrived at Duquesa for the first time ever in July 04, when we were smitten, the view took our breath away, no wonder it’s called Spain’s best kept secret.
We fell in love with the marina, and immediately bought this lovely apartment. Since then, we have been back many times and love it a little bit more every time.
There are a few apartments for rent in the SURROUNDING area, most of them DO NOT OFFER 3 BED,FRONT LINE MARINA FOR THESE PRICES, but, all boasts the marina, now you have the opportunity to sit on the balcony and enjoy the splendour of overlooking the harbour
Around the Charming resort of La-Duquesa you will find every conveniences and facility for your family built around the beautiful focal point of its own 360 berth marina, the award winning holiday village consists of attractive apartments linked by palm-lined boulevards with a superb range of facilities.

We found this property was as described and was comfortable and well presented. The resort was superb and the beaches were just a short walk from the appartment with beach bars dotted along the length of them. We enjoyed our stay at the appartment and will hopefully use it again in the future.

WOW. The view and location were perfect. Near to shops, bars and restaurants with a lift for the older members of our party. We loved it. The apartment might be a little tired but that is more than reflected in the price. It was very clean and plenty of towels bedding etc.. We were offered a shopping service prior to arrival for the cost of goods plus 3 Euros, this was really useful as we arrived on a Sunday.
It is a fair trip from Malaga but the roads are good and not congested. Gibraltar is a much easier airport but timings, to tie in with bookings, will be near impossible in high season. We took our elderly mums and they coped really well due to the location and the lift. The only downside to the proximity of all the bars etc. is the noise at night. Bring some earplugs or join the revelry.
Super value for money. Great communications from the owner prior to departure. Wi-Fi available in the bar/restaurant downstairs and throughout he complex. Cant wait to return
Thank you so much for your very kind review, we try our upmost to make all our guest comfrotable, we wont upgrade at this time, or the price would go up, we like to cater for an affordable family holiday with a 5* view.

Hello again Pat - the apartment and the location of the apartment is wonderful.
The apartment is truly lovely Pat. Did you choose the furniture and fittings etc., Where did you find the lovely quilts for the beds. Shirley wondered where you found the curtains. You appear to have a very good eye for overall effect and it is super. Very very nice and pretty and comfortable. So many many thanks Pat for allowing us to stay there. Getting up in the morning and taking my lemon tea on the balcony was sheer delight and we had our drinks there in the evening before going out for meals. Mostly with Rebecca and my so beautiful granddaughters. I hope you will meet them - they are sheer delight (no kidding).
Bye for now Pat and again my thanks and would like to meet up with you some day. Do you spend much time in Spain or do you mostly live in Wales.

The apartment is situated in an excellent location, Really great property, very spacious and a short walk from the beach and the many bars and restaurants that make up the area are on your door step, We would certainly visit the property again Its a great pity that our holidays are over so quickly we have already made recommendations to family and friends. Thank you Pat for all your help and hope to see you next year.
Just come back from our first visit to Duquesa, we had a fantastic 2 wks at this apartment, will defiantly go back next year, cant fault this apartment, its not 5* luxury however its homely , clean, comfortable and had everything we needed, fairly priced for 6 people, the view is to die for, worth every penny just just to sit on the balcony, larger than average apt, the owner was a very helpful welsh lady.
Were rating 5 out of 5, Im sorry it has taken me so long in writing our comments, only just found your email address WE HAD A GREAT TIME, as we did not hire a car the transport U arranged for us was first class the apartment was plenty big enough for six people and very well equipped as it was just Tony and I we had so much space we were very lucky the weather was very hot and we had the San Juan festival O the 23rd June, which was very good glad we were there to see that, also we had the world cup fever at the time we were there, as I siad we did not hire a car witch I wish we had ,but it did not stop us getting about the buses are good and taxis were not to pricey, would defiantly go back as we had such a great time .Tony and Angela
I have just returned from a fab week in Puerto Duquesa with my hubbie and in laws! The apartment was lovely, clean and cosy, had everything we needed and more! loved the beach that didnt get too busy, ! 1 minutes from the apartment you will find everything you need, many restaurants and a small supermarket! The view from the apartment is amazing, we are all missing it already! I would definitely recommend it to friends and would stay here again!"
Thanks for a lovely holiday. It was a lovely surprise to see there were 2 bathrooms and a dishwasher waiting for us at this extremely comfortable home from home apartment. We enjoyed it all - the view from the balcony, the spacious cool rooms, satellite TV and the Billy Conolly DVD! The location was superb. The people were friendly, the shops and all the nice restaurants were convenient and very affordable for a family of 5. The beaches were both good - the one on the left was really good for snorkelling and the one on the right had excellent waves for body surfing - the kids were besides themselves. Neil and I were suprised how empty the beach was compared with other places we have been to. The drive from Malaga was easy with excellent instructions, thank you, and Gibraltar was really interesting (we did the taxi tour - worth every Gibraltar Pound).
We should have e-mailed you earlier to say that we had a wonderful time at Duquesa. We felt that the The pictures on the website really don't do this lovely property justice.
Internet photos did not adequately represent how nice and spacious the apt is,everything was Furnished and decorated very tastefully and well equipped, sparklingly clean. We enjoyed the area very much, easy access to beach restaurants etc which meant we only needed the car for days out. We would love to go back.
Sorry for the delay in replying but we are in the process of finding a new
house and work has been very hectic - the apartment was excellent - having
been to Ducquesa the previous year we knew what to expect.
Thank you for letting us use your place.
David and Joannie
