A luxury, 2 bed apartment with aircon and fully equipped mod cons. Has a large corner terrace which overlooks mature gardens/fountain and the pool.
Our apartment has been furnished to a very high standard and we have tried to maintain a warm homely feel with soft colours and furnishings. It really is home from home with everything you'll need to make your holiday as relaxing as possible.
The spacious master bedroom has its own TV, dressing area and en suite bathroom which is fully fitted with a shower. The twin bedroom has generous wardrobe space and has a lovely view over the pool which is beautifully lit at night. This bedroom has access to the adjacent main bathroom. The cosy sitting room has TV with satellite channels, DVD player and a CD player, so remember to bring along your favourite films and music albums! The fully equipped kitchen has everything you'll need for cooking your favourite meals plus a very handy dishwasher for the chores you don't want to be doing whilst trying to make the most of your holiday.
There are 24 hour security guards at El Presidente who make it their aim to keep the Urbanisation as peaceful and safe as possible. There are also tennis courts available for residents to use also.
I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay here at our home in Spain as much as we do!
The local area
There are some lovely local restaurants which are just walking distance away including a traditional English pub which serves roast dinners on a Sunday. As you drive into Marbella's town you will find many traditional Spanish restaurants - but if its more multi-cultural food you're after then Puerto Banus is the place for you. You'll find cuisine ranging from Chinese to Indian to even your traditional American diner - all tastes are catered for.
Puerto Banus is the place to make your night out special by looking your best and taking a stroll in the warm night air along the harbour where you'll get to see some of the most famous and prestigious yachts, boats and sports cars imaginable. The rich and famous make this the place to be.
There are many designer boutiques to look at plus the famous department store, El Corte Ingles. If you love shopping this will make your day - Puerto Banus even has its own market day every Saturday where you'll be able to find antiques, leather goods, jewellery and much more. Make sure you stop in the restaurant called Yanks which is very popular amongst the locals and tourists alike.
There's lots to do, including visiting the charming Spanish villages in the mountains such as Ronda, Casares, Mijas and Istan which are within an hours drive from El Presidente. Ronda is one of our favourite places to go as the view is breathtaking once you reach the top - its definitely a place to go and visit.
If its a relaxing day you need then the local beaches are within a few minutes walk away. A holiday here is one of the best you'll experience - we certainly love it.
A fantastic apartment in a great complex. Felt very luxurious and tranquil. The pools are great, the big pool with the child friendly area was fantastic for our 2 year old.. would definitely recommend. Loved the Marbella area, old town Marbella especially beautiful. Thanks for a great holiday. Clare & family.

The key handover was a bit of an unnecessarily complicated issue with the meeter/greeter not meeting or greeting. The apartment is lovely and clean and well decorated and comfortable. We really didnt want to drive, but everything is a bit far away and the nearest restaurants werent very nice. This is an ideal place if you dont want to do anything but sit by the pool and cook your own meals in the apartment (although the supermarket is a schlepp away on foot) and everywhere is a bit of a trek to walk. The balcony area is beautiful and spacious. We alternated between pool areas and both were lovely and clean. The use of a car is, in our opinion, a must here.

The property has excellent furnishings and is very comfortable and well maintained. Everthing you could want for is in the apartment.
Very good access to the swimming pool with wonderful views from all sides of the property.
We would definitely recommend the property to relatives and friends. The meet and greet at the apartment was well organised as were details for our departure. Thank you.

The apartment was perfect - exactly as shown in the photos and was furnished and equipped as described. The complex was lovely and extremely well kept. Even though we were there out of season, the pools were immaculate and the heated pool was available for everyone to use. One point to note is that there are a lot of steps over the water features around the complex and up to the apartment, and no lift access so not ideal for anyone who requires easy access.
The location though is ideal and within a short walk to the beach and restaurants. A car is pretty much essential if you want to get around the area, but its just a short drive to the supermarkets, golf courses, resorts etc
We would definitely book again and recommend this apartment to anyone.

We love the whole El Presidente complex, we have been 6 times in all. The apartments are always very comfortable, clean and tidy and well kitted out. The grounds are beautifil and if the weather is good the pools are brilliant.
My only negative point is that they are quite expensive for an apartment, especially in this economic climate.
Our two bedroom property is a corner apartment which benefits from two lovely views from the terrace - one is of the mature gardens with its main water feature, the fountain and the other view is one of the five swimming pools available to residents. This pool has a built in jacuzzi and has just been made into a heated pool, perfect for the cooler months. All the pool areas have sunloungers.
The terrace has its own sunlounger, dining suite for those candlelit dinners and an outdoor sette and two arm chairs to relax into.
The main bedroom walks out onto the large terrace and the second bedroom has a Juliet balcony which overlooks the swimming pool.
The Urbanisation is set in beautiful tropical gardens which are wonderful to explore and walk around.
