The Costa Del Sol Region
The Costa del Sol is a region in the south of Spain, in the autonomous community of Andalusia, comprising the coastal towns and communities along the Mediterranean coastline of the Málaga province and the eastern edge of the Cádiz province. The name translates as "Sunny Coast"  in English. Formerly made up only of a series of small, quiet fishing settlements, the region has been completely transformed during the latter part of the 20th century into a tourist destination of world renown, with a near-continuous urban agglomeration of high-rise settlements and resorts running along the length of the coastline.
It includes the city of Málaga,and the towns of Torremolinos, Benalmádena, Fuengirola, Mijas, Marbella, Puerto Banús, San Pedro de Alcántara, Vélez-Málaga, Nerja, Torrox, Estepona, San Luis de Sabinillas, the community of Sotogrande, San Roque and La Línea de la Concepción.
Settlement in the region dates back to the Bronze Age, and it has been colonised and ruled by many cultures such as the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Visigoths and Moors, before the Reconquista.
Historically its population lived in the fishing villages, and in the "white" villages a little distance inland, in the mountains running down to the coast. The area was discovered and developed to meet the demands of international tourism in the 1950s and has since been a popular destination for foreign tourists not only for its beaches but also for its local culture. The area is particularly famous for its towns like Marbella, which provides the Costa del Sol with its reputation for being a playground for its super-rich and famous visitors.
In recent years the Costa Del Sol has become known to golf enthusiasts as the 'Costa Del Golf' due to the number of high quality golf courses, more than fifty, of which many are centred around Marbella. Attracting golfers from all over Europe and the rest of the world, the Costa del Sol has benefitted from the stimulation provided by this sport to growth in tourism and to the resulting increase in development of new complexes to house the number of golfers visiting the area.
Marbella's motto is "A Way of Life" and, certainly, this luxurious resort town seems to have it all and is, once again, rising to the fore as a favourite location with the rich and famous, as well as more ordinary folk who are willing to pay just a little bit extra for southern Spain's answer to St Tropez.
Not too long ago, Marbella sharpened its image still more thanks to a considerable investment initiated by the town's colourful and controversial late mayor, Jesus Gil which resulted in a massive landscaping drive.
But Marbella has a down to earth side as well, an air of individuality which can be best appreciated by exploring back streets in the old part of town. One of the prettiest places is the fabled 'Orange Square' which is located just off the main street in the older district and is also home to the 16th century town hall and tourist office where you can pick up a detailed map and visitor information
Back to Orange Square, or "La Plaza de los Naranjos", as it is called in Spanish, expect to meet with stately buildings, small shops, art galleries, bars and bistros and is a hub of activity day and night. And, depending on the time of year, the colours here can be vibrant, with the trees and exotic tropical plants set against a backdrop of dazzling white buildings and a deep blue sky.
Be sure to explore the honeycomb of surrounding narrow streets where homes and shops intermingle to create the atmosphere of a small village, rather than a cosmopolitan town. There are numerous excellent restaurants to choose from, ranging from those specialising in the predictably pricey exclusive cordon bleu to the gritty individuality of a backstreet Spanish bar where the Serrano ham is gently cured by tobacco smoke and the tapas are both tasty and filling.

“ The Skol building in Marbella is situated right on the seafront and close to both the town centre and the beautiful Old Town. It has its own delightful sea facing gardens and swimming pools. The garden affords direct access to the waterfront promenade.
The accommodation in question is on the third floor, front, south east facing corner with balconies facing to the south and to the east, providing sunshine from the morning until sunset.
The apartment comprises a delightful living/dining area with breakfast bar and fully equipped kitchen, including dishwasher, washing machine and microwave oven. There is also a double bedroom, with balcony, and bathroom with shower. The whole apartment is clean and tastefully appointed.
The location of the apartment gives easy access to a wide variety of excellent eating opportunities of almost every kind from beach cafes to restaurants and from tapas bars to pubs!
The variety of places to visit around Marbella is extensive, from coastal towns and resorts to the beautiful hillside white painted “pueblos”.
My wife and I have visited Marbella in the winter for the past three years and this is most definitely the best and most convenient location to which we shall undoubtedly return.”
We had a wonderful time and your apartment was just what we wanted in terms of location, size, quality, views and peace and quiet. The location was simply ideal, with close proximity to the sea combined with close proximity to some fine eateries. Even the weather was kind to us, a lovely time of year to visit.
We shall certainly return and not hesitate to recommend you flat to families and friends.

It's hard to know what to say that other reviewers haven't. This apartment, with its south and East facing balconies overlooking the Mediterranean, is perfect in its setting, with its views, in its proximity to both the town and the old town and in its comfort. The weather also helps!
November 2013 5 star review
This is the perfect apartment for two people. It's close to all the amenities, within walking distance of the old town and has the most amazing view. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived and obviously had just been painted. The furniture was modern and tasteful and everything was well-maintained. The owner provided us with excellent directions and the entire booking process couldn't have been easier. The staff on the front desk were helpful and pleasant and the building felt very safe at all times. We tried a number of restaurants which were excellent but kept going back to Da Brunos which is located just below our apartment. The food, atmosphere and staff were consistently first rate. All in all this is the ideal location for a great Winter break in Marbella.

My fiancé and I stayed at this apartment for 11 days and we had a great time! Best location, so close to the beach, to old town, to markets, to the boardwalk, movie theatre.
The apartment had everything we needed. Perfect place in Marbella. Hope to go back sometime and would highly recommend it to anyone :)

We were delighted with the above accommodation we had in Marbella. The location is absolutely perfect and the promenade, Old Town, local buses, taxis and food markets are only a few yards away. The local buses are really cheap and we managed to visit Puerto Banus, Estepona, Mijas, Ojen and Fuengerola without going to the main bus station located two miles away.
We also liked the view from the balcony where we enjoyed our breakfast and the sunsets.
The place is well managed, clean, and the reception staff are always helpful.
There is a good restaurant in the same block called El Capitan which is very good. There are more good restaurants and bars in the promenade.
You can have free internet access by going into the Orange Square in the Old town
which is three minutes away. If you want to print your boarding pass there is also an internet cafe opposite El Capitan Restaurant and it will cost just one euro.
We will be happy to recommend the place to anyone interested in staying in Marbella. It is a very nice. clean town with excellent facilities.

Loved central location in comfy studio near paseo.

We loved the location of the studio just a short hop from the beach and within walking distance of so many marvellous restaurants. The apartment was comfy,very clean and well kitted with all the necessary appliances. We particularly liked the great shower pressure,The balcony though small provided us with sea,city and mountain views.As it is east facing we enjoyed breakfast in the sun for the week.Would highly recommend for an affordable break in Marbella

Review Submitted: 04 August 2012Date of Stay: July 2012
We have stayed in Marbella several times, in various different apartments, and without doubt this has the best location. Just across from the beach, a few minutes walk from every type of restaurant you could want, a few minutes walk from several supermarkets and close to Orange Square. The balcony is superb and was well-used, and the pools were lovely and well-maintained and clean. The apartment itself was clean and although small, perfectly adequate for two. There was even free Wi-Fi downstairs in the reception. Iverna was helpful during the booking and responded to my emails promptly. I would certainly stay in this apartment again.

"We were delighted with the apartment!" Review Submitted: 17 October 2011Date of Stay: September 2011
We were also delighted with the location and very high standard of your apartment.
The views from the balcony were stunning and added to the enjoyment of the holiday. We would also like to add that arranging the holiday with yourself was a simple process.
We would have hesitation on returning to your apartment and will be in touch in due course.
We had a great holiday
Review Submitted: 17 October 2011Date of Stay: September 2011
We had a great holiday and found the apartment very clean and tidy and the best we have stayed in, we have been to Marbella 6 times before, including 3 at the Skol.
Should you wish to post this for future visitors, for trips we took a bus to Estapona (no.27 takes 45 minutes) and also the boat to Puerto Banus, mandatory! and the no. 1 bus back. Restaurant suggestions were handy we were more than happy with all the arrangements and wish you all the best with your future bookings.
Apartment With Excellent Location
Review Submitted: 10 October 2011Date of Stay: May 2011
This apartment has an excellent location overlooking the promenade and adjacent to beach, restaurants, shops , etc. It is in first class condition and Its two balconies allows one to maximise on all available sunshine. Ideal for two people for relaxing break in Marbella: car unnecessary.
Recommended for: Age 55+, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, SightseWe have had a fantastic time in this super apartment. The location is second to none, and we know , as we have stayed in many apartments here before we found this gem. We have already recommended you to our family and friends. It was spotlessly clean and from our first enquiry we were treated with friendly efficiency. 2009.
Thank you for letting us rent your gorerous apartment. It was even better than the photos and the views were just spectacular, especially at sundown. We found it very well equipped and we couldnt have asked for more.
We were sad to leave and cant wait to go back.
This was our third visit to this wonderful apartment and are delighted to recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the best location in Marbella. Iverna has always been very helpful and makes bookings easy and straighforward.
Excellent location, owner very helpful and friendly. The description of the property was accurate.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay in marbella .the views are great and it is just minutes away from the old square and mnay good restaurants and bars ,but not noisy.

Hope you still have that fabulous apartment as we want to rebook for next month please LJ
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment in Skol. We had a superb time and didn't want to come home. The apartment was great with everything that we could have wanted. But the best thing has to be the fantastic views that you have from the balcony, I don't think that there are better views of Marbella than that. We are working out when we can plan another holiday to Marbella and we will be in touch.

Thank you very much for the wonderful time we had in your beautiful apartment. Everything was absolutely as you told us. The views were priceless especially as the sun went down behind the mountains. Oct. 2007 SL
We had a wonderful time in your super apartment last time may we book again please?
What a fabulous location and the apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped. RT
We are having such a great time we don't want to go home !! I wonder can we please stay on if you don't have someone moving in on Saturday MC
I would like to book this apartment again next winter it was so comfortable and had everything we needed. Also its so easy to get to any part of marbella from here. TW
This was a wonderful apartment, perfect for a couple wanting to make the most of the sunshine and the scenery. It could not be more convenient for the beach, the prominade and is within very easy access to all amenities including the harbour and the old town of Marbella. Best of all are the magnificent views, not exaggerated by the website photos. All in all, a wonderful place to spend a vacation. Heffra Dublin
Can we please book again, we enjoyed it so much last time we really want to stay again BG
My partner and I stayed here for a week in Aug 2009 and highly recommend it to others. The property was spotless, modern and the location was perfect.
The two balconies are large and offer both sun and shade -perfect for an afternoon nap or glass of wine during sunset. London
This apt was exactly as described. It was very clean and comfortable and also very secure. The location is excellent as it is central and on the promenade, but in particular the positioning is perfect ie on 3rd floor at the front and on the corner, so that the balcony is bathed in sunlight from dawn to dusk. The views are simply spectacular. One small quibble is that the bedroom is a little small but the large balcony off it (this apt has 2 balconies !) more than compensates. The owner was very efficient to deal with and everything worked a treat. We would certainly recommend this apt to our friends and we will certainly stay there again. GD & BD Waterford
Great location on the promenade. Stunning views from the wrap around balconies. very central for all amenities in the area. Good clean apartment. Swimming pool and restaurant in complex. SWANSEA UK
What a super place you have, the balconies are a real treat. We have stayed in Marbella many times before and have never had such a good location and so luxurious an apartment. GD
Our daughter stayed in your lovely apartment last year and would very much like to return , she has told us so much about it we hope to stay next month if thats possible. TF
