I stayed at this apartment from 28th of June until the 5th of July together with a friend, and we both had a great time. The apartment was plenty big for us, and all the rooms were very clean. We used the bbq, which was quite easy to figure out, and the other nights we went down to the marina to eat. At the marina there as so many different restaurants, cafés and bars, there is something for everyone's taste.
The only thing I would "complain" about, is the wifi-connection. It's not the best. You get it sometimes, but it is quite slow. But the good this is that most of the restaurants and bars have wifi, and will give you the password, so if there are any wifi-holics like my self, you'll survive.
I stayed at this apartment with two friends for a week in October and have booked another week in September this year. It is close to the marina but being just far enough away to have a secluded country feel to it.
The apartment is set in beautiful gardens overlooking the golf course with afternoon and evening sun, something which we particularly liked. Sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sun set is so relaxing.
The apartments has everything you need unless you go on holiday to watch tv, There is a tv but no satellite channels. There is wifi and that was enough for us to catch up on the news from home.
There are two bedrooms upstairs, one double with ensuite and one twin with separate bathroom. I see that one of the single beds has been replaced with bunk beds now so that will be very handy for families.
Downstairs is the lounge with plenty of seating and a fully fitted kitchen. We did eat in a couple of times and found that there were plenty of kitchen utensils. There is also a dishwasher and washing machine..
One thing to bear in mind is that with the bedrooms being upstairs, it would not be suitable for anybody with walking difficulties.
The marina and beach is only a 5 minute walk away. We didnt swim in the sea but the beach area looked very inviting with a lovely promenade. There is plenty of eating choice for all tastes in the marina and the prices are very reasonable.
We hired a car for the week and traveled around a bit along the coast in both directions. There is quite a lot to see and do if you really want to with some great walking areas around the mountains by Casares and of course Gibraltar.
I am looking forward to my next visit to Duquesa and La Almadraba and hope that everything is just as good as the first stay. Everything is highly recommended.
