We are a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 17 & 18. We stayed here for 8 days at the beginning of June. We have visited the area 4 times now so are becoming fairly familiar with Nueva Andalucia, and we found the apartment with no problems after being given directions from Caitriona. The apartment was just perfect for us and I wish we could have stayed for longer. As previous posts have said, it is very well equipped to a high standard. One thing I noted was the amount of spare bedding, pillows & towels that were there. This has been lacking in other places we have stayed. I spent a lot of my time soaking up the sun on the massive balcony while the 3 boys went golfing. It looks down onto a huge well-kept pool area and gardens. Los Naranjos is their favourite course here and is within a 10 minute drive up the hill. There are many top quality golf courses in this area which can be reached very easily by car/taxi from Lorcrimar V. The complex felt very secure and the apartment has its own covered parking space very close by at the bottom of the easy stairs to the entrance door. There is also a lift but we never used it. So don’t be put off being on the first floor if you are less mobile as it wouldn't be a problem at all. Although we always hire a car, it would not be necessary staying here and you are not far from the main bus stops if you wanted to venture further afield. We didn’t cook in the apartment apart from one BBQ as we enjoy going out to eat in the evenings. We usually walked into the marina, straight down the hill and along the beachfront, and got a taxi home. There is a handy market shop just outside the complex which is open until late in the evening. Next door is a pizzeria where we got takeaway pizzas from on our first night as we were feeling too lazy to go out. There's more than 1 big supermarket within a 5 minute drive. Having wifi is a must for us, and it was a bonus having all the UK TV channels along with all the Sports Channels. It made it a real home from home holiday which is just what we needed. It was a pleasure to deal with Caitriona throughout, and we would love the opportunity to stay here again. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment - book it you will not be disappointed!
Lovely specious apartment, well equipped. Large sunny balcony in a peaceful and tranquil setting, overlooking large tropical gardens. Easy proximity to shops and restaurants. Great walks close by. On main bus route to many local attractions. Will definitely return next year.

Have been coming to Marbella for years but only just discovered Lorcrimar V complex. Stayed here for 2 weeks with my wife and 2 sons. Great location, very peaceful and quiet complex yet only 5 mins from the life of the port. The pool was never crowded once and we stayed peak season! The apartment is lovely. Perfect for a family (4) holiday. The large balcony is great for sunbathing, reading on a sofa or dinner and overlooks the pools so we were able to keep an eye on the kids (plus the complex pool lifeguard present was good). Washing machine and decent wifi was great with kids too. We'll definitely come back here. Communications with Caitriona (the owner) were excellent before/during stay. 10/10.
