Hotel, rooms, food and location again fantastic. Played all 3 courses and whilst the greens were great, the bunkers on all of them were simply unplayable - ironically, they were re-sanding them on the day we were leaving. The tees were a bit 'rough' and...More

Situated high in the hills above Marbella this course offers spectacular holes right from the off. The first tee is set around 50ft above the fairway with a river on the right hand side so beware of a slice! All of the remaining 17 holes...More

hi myself and 3 friends arrive at La cala on Sunday.This is our 3rd stay at La Cala and we have enjoyed the first 2 with no problems. Having read some of the reviews i am a bit concerned though. We have prepaid for buggies for all our golf but it seems there is lots of issues with this.Can you confirm you have the agreement with our travel agent that we have prepaid?
