“Lovely apartment, great location, perfect for families”
Reviewed 7 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location is great with a lovely pool and the beach right on the doorstep. Safe for the kids as pool area is gated, and everything within walking distance for a family holiday. The Marina is very picturesque with a wide choice of bars and restaurants and some lovely market stalls at night. The banana boat ride went down well with the kids too.

We walked in both directions along the seafront in the evenings and found a lovely small village one way near the Fort with some lovely restaurants away from the business of the Marina. The other direction towards the next town was busier and a bit more built up (not as nice as the marina). However, there were some lovely fish restaurants right on the beach where they cooked the food on a beach BBQ.

The apartment was lovely, well looked after, with a large balcony area with nice views. There's even some toys for the kids in the cupboard to use in the pool. The information book in the apartment was very useful as well. The only thing missing was the promised 'welcome pack' of tea bags, milk etc which is mentioned in the apartment information, so if you are arriving on a Sunday when all the shops are closed maybe consider this and bring at least some water with you to start with.

We'd definitely recommend this as a family holiday destination if you aren't keen on the usual 'british' built up/concrete parts of Spain. A friend recommended Duquesa and it was the best recommendation we could have received.

Sorry I have been long delayed responding to your review, not previously seen. I am disturbed that you say the welcome pack was not available, as my cleaner has instruction always to provide water and milk, and there are sachets of coffee, teabags and sugar in a plastic container , kept topped up usually, in kitchen cabinet. It is the only time this has been referred to, and apologies if this pack was not available.

Travelled with extended family, we had a ball. Very safe place, teenagers could go over to marina at night on there own. Trips to Gibraltar, and Ronda on the train are good days out.
The only issue is the tolls on the AP-7 from Malaga airport are over 12 euro. travel on the A7 instead good road and no toll. The women loved the Shopping at La Canada shopping centre near Marbella. Good supermarkets 1000 m either side of apartment. supermarket in marina has very small selection and expensive compared to the other ones.

“Everything on a plate!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Another wonderful holiday spent in this gorgeous apartment. We just love the resort and we are so at home here. There is something for everyone, and you can relax and chill or get out and about. The kids love the complex and we know that they are safe with plenty of things to occupy them. We love the family atmosphere but at the same time you can read a good book and just people watch. We are already planning our next visit!

So glad to hear that you have not grown tired of our apartment and the resort - we try to keep updating its contents the way we would wish it to be for our holiday. Look forward to hearing from you again for next year. Just a reminder that if you book during 2013, we discount 10% for repeat bookings - you will see our prices for 2014 already posted and we are already receiving bookings.

Glad you enjoyed your holiday again, enough to be considering visiting again next year. Duquesa is certainly a place that captures you to want to return.
