This is a great resort to enjoy the naturist lifestyle. The grounds were beautiful and the views of the sea from Estepona to Gilbraltar were great. As others have mentioned the beach is not the greatest so we only spent one day there paying the €14 for 2 beach chairs and an umbrella. The rest of our time was lounging on the grass area of the resort. Luckily our apartment unit had an umbrella that we could use otherwise there would have been no shade.

The Brasserie restaurant was great. All the staff are friendly and worked hard. Some nights they could have used an extra staff member as they were quite busy. They had good choices on the menu and the food was quite good. The only thing we didn't care for was Curry Night. We like Indian food but this was not to our taste.

They have a good laundry area as well. We had been on the road for 11 days before we got to the resort and we needed to get some washing done. You buy tokens from reception. The washing machines do a good job and the dryers last longer than what we needed for the clothes to dry. One nice thing about a naturist resort is you can wash all your clothes.

Now the buts.

We were in unit 13 and it had been recently renovated and was nicely setup for 2. It was nicely equipped except for a hair dryer. It was supposed to have one and we spent 3 days trying to get one from reception but then gave up and never did have one. The other issue was the WIFI. We checked in on a Monday and bought their WiFi package for a week. After 5 days we got a message that the WiFi had expired. We went to the office to explain about the message we got and the person rather rudely said that maybe it had expired. We said no we were short to 2 days. It got straightened out but perhaps his first response should have been "Sorry, let's see what the problem is ". Another issue was that they don't tell you ahead of time that your toiletries are not provided. Luckily we had some soaps and shampoo that we had got from previous hotels that we had stayed at so we were ok there but when we went to the reception one time to see about the hair dryer we asked about another roll or two of toilet paper and were told that we had to provide our own toilet paper and toiletries. Great this was just after coming back from the grocery store across the street. At least the next renters had lots of toilet paper. They should do a better job of explaining this on their website so you know before you check in. The directory in the units could be updated as well, as a lot of the information was out of date such as trying to figure out how to open the gate to drive in and out.

Overall though it was a great experience and we would go again if the opportunity presented itself again.

My wife and I have just returned from a fortnight of unashamed relaxation and luxury. The staff at Costa Natura were lovely and made us feel welcome from the outset. The grounds were immaculate and manicures and the accommodation was recently renovated and contained everything we would wish for. The restaurant served the most delicious food throuighout the day and evening and the weekend entertainment was worth witnessing. Altogether a perfect relaxing getaway - we shall return.

Room tip: The apartments can be viewed and chosen on line.

We had a really good fortnight here. As we were arriving late, reception arranged to leave our keys in a keysafe and give us a passcode for the gate. Everything went fine (apart from my navigation to the hotel!). The resort doesn't have the scale and range of facilities of somewhere like La Jenny, but being on the Costa del Sol, you are guaranteed sunshine pretty well every day. There is a very good pool, boules area, and a volleyball court. The restaurant is great with friendly staff and there are various musical events during the week. (If you don't like karaoke, choose an apartment away from this area!). If you prefer to self cater, there are two supermarkets across the road. And if you value your life, use the longer route over the bridge rather than a suicidal and possibly illegal dash over the highway!
We paid slightly more than average for a larger apartment, but from what I saw of several others, they all looked decent. The beach is shingle and shelves quite steeply, so if you are looking for smooth sandy beaches, this is not the place for you. But if you want to fall out of bed, walk 50 yards and jump in the sea, you can't go wrong. All in all, a great 2 weeks. Picturesque setting, beautiful gardens and sea views, friendly and helpful staff. And warm enough in the summer to be naked 24 hours. What more can you ask?

Room tip: Middle away from pool and road may be quiter

We've just come home after a 12 night stay, and on the flight home we were already discussing booking for next year.
CN is such a relaxing place to be. As described by other reviewers, the gardens are beautiful; the Andalusian village style with footpaths meandering between the apartment buildings is quite lovely; the pool is a good size, and was never crowded when we were there; the hot tub could probably do with a bit of refurbishment; the brasserie does some good meals, we especially enjoyed the paella night, but weren't as impressed by the barbeque night, finding it rather expensive for what we got. Service in the brasserie could be hit and miss, two nights running our bill was incorrect, once in our favour and once in theirs. The service we received at the reception area was exceptionally good with very friendly and helpful staff.
The beach was a big disappointment, uncomfortable to walk on and very steeply shelving into the sea. There were a few days when we couldn't swim due to the red flag being raised, presumably because of strong currents. There is a rocky area in the sea which is okay for a bit of snorkeling, take bread with you to lure the fish out of hiding. In our first week the sea was an acceptable temperature, during the second week it was too cold to stay in long. It is only because of the beach and sea that I didn't give five stars.
Across the road, by pedestrian bridge, is an Aldi, but 300 meters further down the same road is a really good supermarket. There's also a burger king between the two.
We flew into Malaga and hired a car. The journey from the airport to CN is just over an hour. We used the car to visit some of the lovely mountain villages which are within easy driving distance of CN. Especially worth visiting is Ronda. We also did day trips to Tangier and Gibraltar, booked through CN, and both of which we would recommend.
In summary: a really great naturist resort, within easy reach of some great attractions, just marred a bit by a poor beach.
