ESTEPONA

Estepona is the Costa del Sols most westerly resort and lies 75 km from Malaga airport at the foot of the Sierra Bermeja mountains.

Originally a fishing village Estepona has developed as a mainly Spanish resort and therefore has a much more authentic atmosphere than many of the other resorts of the Costa del Sol with typical Andalusian whitewashed houses and balconies decorated with flowers. The houses are whitewashed and iron gates painted every year to maintain the feeling of a cared for town.

Locals can often be seen chatting outside these houses. In the old part of the town the streets are still cobbled whilst along the seafront runs a very pretty promenade lined wih palm trees and flowers. Some chiringuitos (beach bars) are to be found along this promenade.

Estepona is a perfect resort for families and people looking for a quiet holiday away from the busy nightlife of some of the more commercialised resorts along the coast although there are some disco pubs around the marina. There are many traditional tapas bars around Plaza Las Flores and some excellent restaurants specialising in seafood and fish dishes such as sardines on the spit (espeto de sardinas).




BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE AND GOLF
PUERTO PARADISO is ideally situated overlooking the marina in the heart of Esteponas thriving fishing port and marina. Within a few minutes walk you will find several supermarkets and shops and the local tapas bars and restaurants are situated in Estepona Marina an easy 2 minutes walk away.

CRISTO BEACH (5 minutes west of the apartment) is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand, ideal for children.

LA RADA BEACH (5 minutes East of the apartment) runs for 2km past the old town and is a lovely walk along the promenade (Paseo Maritimo).

For many years both beaches have been awarded EC Blue Flag status for cleanliness and safety and in high season are manned daily with lifeguards. They also have well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of chiringuitos (beach front restaurants) with a true Spanish feel. Ideal for spending a full day on the beach!

GIBRALTAR - only 35 minutes drive from Estepona (and on the local bus route), Gibraltar is a sunny, VAT-free haven where you can find duty free bargains from electronic equipment & jewellery to leather & perfumes & haggling is encouraged! Make sure you dont miss the spectacular natural caverns of St. Michaels Caves or visit the Apes Den, home to some of Gibraltars famous Barbary Apes, the only free-to-roam primates in Europe. Watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous and have been known to pick the occasional pocket looking for treats.

PUERTO BANUS is about 25 minutes drive away. It has a large number of designer stores including Versace and Armani. Perfect for millionaire spotting and you may also see a famous face in the port as a number of Hollywood stars have summer homes there.

LAGUNA VILLAGE - a stunning high class shopping experience just 10 minutes drive away. Whether spending an extravagant day at the beach club, shopping in the designer stores or spending time in the luxurious bars and restaurants then Laguna Village is the ideal place.

SELWO SAFARI PARK - only 20 minutes drive away and on the public transport route, Selwo is ideal for the perfect family day out. The park is based on an African safari park and houses 2000 animals from giraffes to panthers in semi-wild conditions. Like Jurassic Park, large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills above Estepona. There are elephants, bears, hippos and so much more to see. In the summer, cover up as it can get very hot and there is not much shelter.

GOLF COURSES - there are over 20 courses within a 45 minute drive. The local Estepona Golf Club (www.esteponagolf.com) is reasonably priced between 20 - 60 euros for a round and the Sunday Express regarded their greens as some of the best on the Costa Del Sol. Also Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club with its exciting fairway winding through dramatic gullies, ravines and streams, offers a superb challenge to even the most experienced golfers.

3rd floor apartment located on Puerto Paradiso complex, 2 pools, views over the marina, Blue Flag beaches. Estepona is perfect for families & golfer

We had a great holiday there is so much to do locally, the weather was wonderful, with a lovely tan to show off at work! The apartment was ideal for me and my partner, plenty of space and homely and I would highly recommend. Really sorry about the damage we caused to the bedroom door. Thanks

A lovely spacious apartment, in a great location - what a view ! Well equipped, with everything we needed to hand. Spent many hours relaxing on the balcony, watching the fishing boats coming and going early in the morning. Only a two minute walk to the beach, and a ten minute walk to Estepona bus station - buses are frequent and very reasonable. We had a fabulous holiday and would recommend the apartment to anyone thinking of visiting the lovely Estepona.

Just wanted to say that we had an excellent time in Estepona and we thought the apartment was excellent.

The apartment is in an excellent position very close to the harbour and in walking distance of shops, restaurants and the beach. The only disadvantage I would say about the apartment is that the balcony only had the sun on it until about 11.30 am so we had to go out in order to sit in the sun. All the amenities in the apartment were food and the only think it lacked was a hairdryer. I would definitely use the apartment again.

We were disappointed the moment we stepped into the apartment and the air conditioning that was represented as being included was in fact required to be paid for by the hour (I believe that since we complained this information has been added to the description in "notes", although nothing was done for us and no one communicated with us in response). Not only was this an additional cost, but required that we constantly obtain the appropriate change to place in the machine to permit the air conditioning to stay on. That said, we had no choice but to use it because we could not keep the windows open at night as the apartment is right above all the bars at the port which are busy and very noisy. Furthermore, no one responded to our concerns when they were expressed while we were there. The Puerto Paradiso is well-located and there are many units in the four buildings that comprise it, so I would advise that anyone interested search Puerto Paradiso to shop around before committing to this specific older unit without air-conditioning included.
Owner reply:

Firstly we are very sorry you felt this way and this is the first negative review we have received. It is common practice in Puerto Paradiso to charge for air conditioning due to the high electricity prices. The cost is only 1 Euro for 2 hours and is not done for profit but simply to cover costs. We have previously had bad experiences whereby the air conditioning units were left on 24/7 leaving astronomical bills and therefore in order to keep the rental cost down we were advised to install the meters. We regret that the guests were confused by the advert and not being aware that the air conditioning was a separate cost and have changed the advert to reflect this to avoid further confusion in the future. It is important to note that there are both ceiling and floor fans in the apartment should a guest not want to use the air conditioning and this week we have increased the number of hours of usage Now you get 4 hours for 1 Euro. As the owner of the apartment we never received a message that there was an issue with the air conditioning and can confirm this will be looked into to understand whether there was a communication issue and if so how we can make sure it doesn't happen again. We are sorry your stay wasn't as enjoyable as you would have liked, however, it was not a pleasant experience for us either as we incurred double cleaning costs because of the state in which the apartment was left.

I spent a week with my golf partner in Estepona back in May. We had a great time lots of courses to choose from and all within easy reach. The apartment is within easy of restaurants and bars and a few minutes from two Blue Flag beaches. Great location for a family and golf holiday. Apartment is great and I would recommend it to family and friends. Thank you

What a wonderful location, waking up every morning to that sea view, we didnt want to leave. The apartment is lovely well equipped and ideal for a self catering holiday. We have a had a great 2 weeks in the sun, relaxing on La Rada Beach nearly every day. In the evenings it has to be a visit to one of the many Tapas Bars, fantastic food. Went on a day trip to Gibraltar, well wroth a visit especially for the duty free and to see the monkeys. Puerto Banus is great for shopping. We would highly recommend Paraiso Apartment and Estepona.
