“Aldabacadabra - an apartment that makes for a magical holiday.”
Reviewed 6 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A lovely apartment that was home from home for our eight day stay late August / early September. It was so convenient for the beach (5 minutes walk to the sea) and promenade (25 minutes to the Marina). Apart from enjoying the beach, pool, and many restaurants and bars in Puerto Banus, we visited Ronda (ancient village 50km north of Puerto Banus in the mountains), Mijas (another beautiful village in the mountains north of Benalmadena), Aqualand (great day at the waterpark for kids and adults) and took the boat to Marbella and walked back along the coast (takes about 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace - you can stop and relax at the many bars / cafes along the way). Highly recommend Astral for cocktails (Marbella end of Puerto Banus Marina) and Piucaro (Puerto Banus) and Restaurante Conmpasion (in Marbella old town).

I really couldn't find fault with the apartment - it was very spacious, the air con was great, the beds were very comfortable, the bathrooms BOTH better than we have at home, the kitchen well appointed with everything working at it should and there were two spacious balconies - one with a BBQ and a table for breakfast overlooking the gardens.

The complex itself is very secure with lovely mature palms, a pond and a fantastic pool that was never too busy. There's also a great DVD collection to keep kids amused. Our eldest was kept busy with James Bond, Harry Potter and Men in Black and the WiFi kept our youngest quiet on Netflix / Youtube while we enjoyed the balcony overlooking the gardens. TV/satellite box probably needs an upgrade but DVDs compensated nicely (and we weren't there to watch TV).

I should note that there's a shop around the corner that will supply the basics. For a bigger shop you'll have to take the car but it's only 5 minutes away. Note: If you arrive late in the evening, you won't be able to buy wine in the shops after 10pm so might be an idea to pick up some supplies at the airport before you go to the apartment.

Dealing with the owners was great. David and Christine were very responsive and were happy to address all queries. Tony and David (local representatives) were also very helpful. David was there waiting for us on arrival to show us around and answer any questions we had.

Overall, a great apartment in a great location leading to a great experience in a great place!

Liked best: Location, spaciousness, security and pool.
Liked least: A welcome pack would have been a life saver as we arrived late and had to find a shop after 11pm.

“Very clean and well equipped apartment.”
Reviewed 1 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A very clean and well equipped apartment, contained far more than the bare minimum. Lovely to have 2 bathrooms. Pool area and gardens also very pleasant. The walk into the very centre of Puerto Banus took about 30 mins but, as the walkway overlooks the beach, this was hardly a chore!

“Great cooperation, communication, flexibility and personal touch”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I would love to recommend Christine and David's property for several reasons. We have used direct owners and holiday letting quite a lot, therefore we can compare. During our booking ( we don't know the area at all) Christine and David gave us comprehnesive overview of the area and for any questions that I had I recieved a prompt reply. They were very flexible with check in time as we supposed to arrive very early with two young children. Unfortunately my husband had a serous trauma and we could not travel, that was happened when we had already paid and could not get any refund according to Holliday letting policy. Christine contacted the agency and we got our money back! When we can travel I will definitely be back to this property. And many thanks to Christine and David!
