“Location, Location, Location”
Reviewed 10 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Fantastic location, so close to numerous restaurants and bars, there is a
small supermarket just across the road from the entrance, and the beach is
just across the main road, the road is quite busy but there are plenty of
pelican crossings.
We had a lovely walk along the beach front to the Marina, If you are not
keen on walking there are plenty of buses and taxis.
The apartment was clean and spacious and had everything we needed, including good Wifi. The terrace was great with amazing sea and mountain views.
The owners Elaine and Juan are wonderful people and everything was so
easy from start to finish.
My two friends and i would definitely recommend this apartment -
the location was perfect - we had everything we needed for a great holiday
and fun in the sun !!

“Comfortable apartment close to beach and amenities”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This apartment was just as described, comfortable and with plenty of room for the 3 of us. From the balcony we could watch local boats and sometimes cruisers out on the horizon or activity on the beach which was just across the road. It is a busy dual carriageway but there are plenty of pelican crossings. There were so many local restaurants we were spoilt for choice but we can definitely recommend the Italian, Pasta Fresca - belissimo! Mijas is well worth a visit, get a bus at the windmill island or spend the morning at the Paloma Park and catch the bus near the gate to Mijas for the afternoon. Elaine met us on arrival and was very helpful. For me, the only downside was the beach which looked lovely until you got close enough to tread through the patches of shingle.

“Excellent apartment in a great location!”
Reviewed 6 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a very enjoyable 2 weeks staying in Elaine & Juan's apartment at Costamar. The apartment was very well equipped with everything you could need on a self catering holiday from pots and pans, iron & board, hairdryer to plenty of spare towels. Its was bright, airy and comfortable and the balcony that over looks both the sea and pool was large enough for all 6 of us to sit on. The pool was also excellent and the kids loved it and the beach was literally across the road from the apartment making its location excellent for us.

We found Elaine & Juan to be very friendly and helpful, especially when we needed to take our son to A&E. They even offered to take us there.

We would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a beach/pool holiday in a central location.

“Good apartment in an excellent location”

We stayed at this apartment for 10 days and found it to be very clean and well stocked. The location is great in terms of access to the beach and local bars and restaurants. The pool area is excellent, clean, well kept and attended by life guards. It is also a good base to travel further afield with a good bus service, Would highly recommend a visit to Mijas which is approx 12km from the apartment. A 10 minute walk from Mijas there is a fantastic Thai restaurant. Palm 5 along the sea front is a great place for cocktails with friendly, helpful staff. The owners of the apartment are really friendly and helpful.

“Location, Location, Location!”
Reviewed 17 March 2013 for a stay in January 2013

My wife and I had a long-stay at Costamar and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The apartment is light, spacious and very well-equipped and the views over the beach and sea are amazing. The owners helped us out with a number of other things that were nothing to do with the apartment! They did everything humanly possible to make our stay a very pleasant one and nothing was too much trouble. The location couldn't be better, just across the road from the beach and a few hundred yards from the Maxi Dia Supermarket on the main road and the Mercadona Supermarket in Palm Tree Avenue. There is a bus stop immediately outside the courtyard for buses towards Torremolinos and Malaga, and another on the opposite side just a short walk up the road for buses towards Fuengirola. The railway station is about 30 minutes' walk away and there is a taxi rank a few minutes walk away at the "Sails" roundabout. Needless to say, there are many bars and restaurants within easy walking distance and there is plenty of choice of different cuisines. Highly recommended.
