“Lovely pool and property in unspoilt location but car essential”
Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We arrived into Gibralter airport (highly recommended - but hire your car on the spanish side of the runway to avoid border queues) on Sunday afternoon and found directions easy up N351 and A7 to Duquesa in 20mins. Unfortunately the agents had left no key and their office was closed - thank goodness the owner was answering his phone back in England and the crisis quickly passed.
The property was clean and well equipped with a thoughtful welcome food pack and sparkling (if very cold) shared pool adjacent. Only downside was passing the Duquesa Golf Hotel to get to it - a victim of the Spanish recession this closed in 2011 and is deteriorating at quite a rate. You definately need a car as the property is near the top of a steep hillside - but lovely views of the sea.
We loved the resort with its smart marina and good restaurants - especially the Italian and Argentinian restaurants on the first floor. Make sure you also visit Estepona old town (newly renovated in 2013) and Casares mountain village nearby.
Would definately visit again - my boys found friends on the first day around the pool.

“Ideal Holiday Home in great location”
Reviewed 21 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Had a great time at the Duquesa Golf Villa. The villa is spacious, well equipped and beautifully prepared. The grounds are kept immaculately - the gardener was there every day of our stay and he clearly takes pride in his work. The owners are quick to answer any questions, both before and during the holiday. The welcome pack mentioned by other reviewers is a real lifesaver when you arrive late at night due to delayed flights and have young children who need their breakfast early the next morning.
Duquesa is a lovely resort which, although it has a large ex pat community, still seems genuinely Spanish and offers a great selection of restaurants and bars. You're less that an hour away from Gibraltar and Marbella respectively or inland the famous 'white' villages of Andalucia.
We had a great time back in Spain after many years of holidaying in Cyprus and will definitely revisit next year.
Only warning would be try to get there in daylight! some of the detailed directions need you to see landmarks and signs which isn't easy at night.
