Had an amazing family holiday in this apartment. Everything for self catering holiday was provided. Apartment very clean and homely and right on promenade. Owners very attentive and accommodating from start to finish. Would definitely book again and recommend to anyone. Well worth the money.
Great apartment, good views. Clean, roomy for 2 people. Great location, you can walk to main town, old town and buses or taxi's to Porto Bonus. Weather was great too. The only thing we found was the sea was very dirty with seaweed and freezing cold. Sunbeds to rent on beach quite expensive 12 euro's for 2 beds and brolly. The skol apartments were full, very busy, I noticed people started to que for sun bed cushions at 7.40am,bearing in mind they do not open until 09.30, pretty sad really, by time we went to the beach, probably about 30-40 people queing for cushions for the sunbeds. The pool area was full and very busy with children, but I would say Marbella itself was extremely busy.
Firstly I would like to say the hosts are amazing, an absolute lady and a gentleman.
From booking to departure they were extremely reliable, polite and very helpful, they are not just renting their apartment, they are sharing a home away from home to ensure you have a wonderful relaxing holiday. I say this because of the little things they include and the common sense approach, small things like having salt, washing up liquid, pool toys, water in the fridge and a few more lovely surprises.
The apartment is very cosy and clean, and contains all the facilities such as microwave, fridge, toaster, cooking equipment, washing machine, hairdryer and more, but they go beyond this, they had a little map drawn out highlighting markets and supermarkets to keep everything simple for you - the personal touches were amazing, they even have a shopping trolley, books and dvd's for your use, it was so comfortable.
The location is absolutely fabulous, beautiful views from the balcony, situated right on the beachfront and in the middle of all amenities and restaurants. The old town is a short stroll away and taxi's to Puerto Banus are outside the back door. The Skol has two lovely swimming pools and plenty of sunbeds for use. I travelled alone with my two kids and felt very safe here - however, it was the personal touches that made this a five star rating. Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Skol apartments.
There is everything you require from cooking pots, dishes, pans and knives right down to a shopping trolley and beach bag.
Ideal location for bars, beach, old town Marbella and Puerto Banus.
We walked along the beach front to Puerto Banus and back which we both enjoyed and stopped off for lunch at one of the many beachside bars and restaurants.

The apartment is in a fantastic location close to all bars and restaurants, but also very peaceful and relaxing. The old town is also a short walk away and a must see. Puerto banus is only a short taxi ride away or you can get a boat over from the marina.
The apartment has everything you need. The beds are comfortable which I always find hard get on holiday.
The pools are great and perfect for kids there is also a larger pool for adults to swim. The garden cafe in the complex was also great. The grounds are always being maintained.
My family found a bar on the front called Barrocco which had by far the best cocktails and drinks including great coffee. There is also a restaurant called boardwalk outside the apartments that is great and do a kids menu and afternoon teas.
The owners are also easy to contact and always help, we would definitely love to come back and would recommend this apartment which is great value.
Will miss falling asleep to the sound of the sea.
