“Perfect apartment - I want to move here!”
Reviewed 13 August 2012 for a stay in May 2012

I am only getting around to writing a review on this apartment now after having stayed here in May but I wanted to leave it until I had enough time to sit down and hopefully do it justice! This is one of the best places abroad I have stayed in! Since staying here I have stayed in other apartments in Croatia and Italy which although good in their own ways I had been totally spoiled by the Menara beach apartment which sets an extremely high benchmark!
The apartment is very spacious and comfortable - just like home away from home and has everything in it you could possibly need - dishwasher, washing machine, cooking facilities, large TV, dvd/cd player, Ipod dock etc. There are two large bathrooms and the bedrooms are a good size and plenty of seating in the main living area. The balcony area is very large, again with plenty of comfortable furniture and a table and chairs. The complex itself is well maintained and secure and the maintenance/security staff are all very friendly as well as most of the other regular apartment stayers around the pool area. The location itself is very peaceful and right on the beach too. Walking slightly to the left towards the Heaven beach bar is where the beach is slightly better as just in front of the complex it is a bit stonier. There is a taxi rank located at the top of the road which is convenient if you dont have a car and costs about €20 into Puerto Banus. There is also a regular bus service at the top of the road where you can very conveniently go to Marbella/ Puerto Banus/Estepona for a couple of Euros. Having a car would be handy but necessary unless maybe you were staying here with a young family.
This apartment is faultless and in many ways I would rather no-one else knew about it so that there would be more chance of it being available!! The one very minor detail I would suggest for improvement is that the pool could be given a quick clean more regularly by the maintenance people which i'm surprised didn't happen so often given all of the rest of the grounds etc were very well maintained.
Ruth, the owner was very good at keeping in contact from start to finish and all arrangements were carried out very professionally and as agreed as well as plenty of useful pieces of information and instructions left in the apartment. Overall, excellent value for money and great to have a trusting owner without the hassle of damage deposits etc! I would definitely recommend this place and hope to be back again sometime soon!

“Perfect location and has everything you could want !”
Reviewed 13 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

What a nice way to finish our last week of vacation. Easy access to Menera Beach from Malaga airport via rental car. Used Ruth and Roger's place as home base for day trips to Gibralter and Seville.. Spent the other days relaxing by the pools or Ocean. Great kitchen to prepare meals. Easy drive to Estepona to the big supermarket (Carrefour) and Marina for open air market. Easy walk up the beach to Tikitano's for a good meal (high end) and down the beach to Heaven Beach Bar and nicely priced food. We truly enjoyed our time there with easy pool and beach access, friendly staff and other guests/ owners. Nice deli and salon within the complex. The unit is finished to very high standards and the a/c was a wonderful bonus during the hot Spanish summer. Thanks Ruth & Roger !

“Outstanding!!”

One word - outstanding. This apt is located in a luxury apt complex between Estepona and Puerto Banus. It was fantastic for us as we socialised in Puerto Banus and yet found the tranquility of the Menara Beach area very relaxing during the daytime.

Ruth (who owns the apt) pays an enormous attention to detail. Her apt is fantastic. It is clean, its tidy, very well furnished, nice art deco, is equipped with extras including extra towels, linen, washing substances, comfortable wicker seating on the quiet but expansive balcony, good range of DVDs for the large TV, large fridge and freezer, etc etc etc. I spent 8 nights here with my friends and it was possibly the most relaxing holiday Ive had in some time. Ruth made sure we had the correct directions (although it can be difficult to find at first) and texted to make sure we had arrived ok.

Look, this apt and complex has it all and more. There is a supermarket nearby, an amazing fish and chip shop 5 mins drive away (Peggotys- you must visit this place!!), excellent restaurants (Da Bruno in San Pedro), great promenade walks in Estepona (the other direction) and a decent beach on your doorstep a few minutes walk from Menara Beach (past the Heaven bar).

Ruth - well done opn maintaining a great apt - I will be looking to book your place again in September. (I only hope that this review does not lead to lack of availability!) :-)

If there was one way of improving - it would be to offer a service / recommend a decent taxi service that will bring travellers directly to your apt. Some of the taxi drivers are not too hot on directions etc... (readers, please note that this is a minor point). Ruth, I would say the pool needs cleaned more regularly as some leaves etc float around due to the gorgeous landscaping around the pool. (another minor point).

Good work - talk soon. My friends Graham, Nellie and I will be back soon.
