“Fab Holiday - great resort - but not for people on a tight budget”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Great apartment - stayed in 2.12. Fab master bedroom and ensuite, with for once, a comfortable bed!! Our teenagers were more than happy with their twin room and bathroom. Kitchen and living space perfect for us - the washing machine and tumble dryer an added bonus.
Only gripes with the apartment was the cost of the internet (not the owners fault - there is no wifi so had use their Vodafone MiFi which was expensive) and also, there is a charge if you use more than a 'reasonable' amount of electricity (again, the rules of the complex not the apartment)
Puerto Banus is a playground for the rich - rented or owned supercars are shown off by their designer clothed and jewellery laden owners. Slim and beautiful (if not surgically enhanced) ladies totter around the many designer shops in their Prada and Jimmy Choo outfits; and handsome men who smell delicious strut past on the way to the many premium bars. Great for people watching but SO expensive.to do so!
The beach was a bit disappointing - not least due to the 10euro a day sunbed charge. We therefore spent the days around the resorts 3 pools and beautiful gardens. The many trees offer natures sun umbrellas should you wish to enjoy the shade. We also took a taxi into Marbella a couple of times as the beach is nicer and the sunbeds half the price!
All in all a premium holiday - but if you can afford it thoroughly worth it.
The owners were very responsive and friendly and the apartment good value for money.

It's wonderful to hear how our apartment and personal service was so well received by our valued guest.
The Marbella/Puerto Banus area has been awarded "European Holiday Destination 2103" so therefore surprised to hear our guest no very happy about the Blue Flag Beach which is directly accessible from our gardens. The cost of the sun loungers of ten euro per day in August, does reflect the opulent area. We're glad that our guests had the option of sunbathing in our splendid manicured tropical gardens and pool areas with two private restaurants.
As regards the WiFi, we have not received complaints either, but there are plenty of free WiFi spots locally, especially in the cafe area located in the on-site Health Spa.
Electricity charges were not applied to our guest and is generally applicable to long term guests only.
We have collated a folder which is in the apartment giving information and details of various activities and restaurants to suit all budgets.

I stayed with my mum and daughter for 5 days. The apartments (stayed in the Andulucia del mar and playas del duque during our stay as couldn't get the del duques one for full duration) Both apartments were absolutely stunning and very very spacious decorated to a high standard and fully equipped with everything we needed. Everything with Angela and Nael was very straightforward on booking and we were assured everything would be as smooth as possible during our transfer to the 2nd apartment which it was no problems whatsoever. We felt it was a shame to leave the beautiful 1st apartment but wasn't disappoimted when we arrived at apt 1.3 in del duques. The gardens were stunning plenty of places to sunbathe and had a café and a restaurant with 4 beautiful pools. Everything was clean well maintained and on top of the beach and ideal for my mum with walking difficulties. Would not hesitate to come back best location and apartments I have stayed in. Although near the nightlife of Puerto Banus very secure both with 24 hr concierge and very quiet so you can have a restful nights sleep. Thanks to Angela and Nael for a excellent straightforward and perfect break.

As you can discern from our client's glowing review, our apartments have everything and more that you will need to enjoy a perfect break away or holiday.
Our apartments, complex and local area are so easy to navigate when using a pushchair, wheel chair or walking aid... the gardens are perfectly designed for ease of access and maneuverability, as is the beach due to the new boardwalk which takes you straight into Marina Puerto Banus. In fact, a car is not required here either as all amenities are either on site or very close by.
As we have 5 apartments and offer flexibility regarding length of stay and day of arrival/departure, we have decided not to stick to a specific "change over" days.And, because our properties are all with in a very close proximity to each other, re-locating
our guests part way through their holiday has always worked well for our customers.

We spent wonderful days in the playa del duque.
This place is a little slice of heaven, we enjoyed the beautiful garden and the appartment 1.3
The appartment was very clean and we found everything we needed (it's fully equiped).
The location is beautiful, the beach is at 2 mins and also the promenade.
we would recommend this place for everyone who wants to rest and change air.

We are so pleased our guests enjoyed the heavenly atmosphere of our apartment and complex.
With the beach being on the other side of our garden gate and marina Puerto Banus being so
closely situated but far enough away, a relaxing time was had by all by the looks of it.

“Superb in every Respect”

We stayed for one week at Club Playas Del Duque wanting a central location to relax in Puerto Banus. This Apartment is superbly located, furnished and has all the necessary "home comforts". The added bonus is that it is quiet, with the most glorious surroundings. Beautifully landscaped private gardens, pools, bar/restaurant and loungers ensured a very relaxing holiday. In terms of the location it is the best in Banus - having looked at other options, Club Playas Del Duque is close enough to walk to ALL Banus has to offer, as well as the surrounding beaches. However it is just far enough away from the Port area to ensure that you can escape the noise and late night revelling.
The booking process was easy, great communication, very helpful with arrival/departure information and transfer options. This made our Holiday experience just perfect and I would return tomorrow without hesitation.

We're delighted our guests were so pleased with what our apartment and everything its' exceptional locality had to offer.

WiFi is available in the apartment plus many bars and restaurants in the surrounding area offer this service too.

The newly installed boardwalk which is accessible from our gardens, leads you straight into Marina Puerto Banus.

Our simplistically designed booking and refundable deposit process is an important factor, ensuring that every element of our service is professionally delivered and ultimately our guests are left wanting to return.

“Prestigious apartment within beautiful tropical gardens and superb beach/port location. in Puerto Banus.”

A prestigious apartment set in beautiful tropical gardens within walking distance of both the beach and port of Puerto Banus. The apartment is extremely well proportioned and extensively appointed. The living area has comfortable sofa's and large glass dining furniture. The terrace boasts fabulous views over the gardens and a side sea view.The gallery kitchen has an open aspect into living area. A very spacious master bedroom with en-suite and a delightful view over the gardens. A second bedroom has twin beds and en-suite. The complex has 24 hour concierge and security. We regularly return to Playa del Duque as it offers a very high calibre of accommodation with easy access to the beach and the port. We would recommend hiring a car as the surrounding area is well worth exploring. Granada, Cordoba and Seville are all only 2 hrs by car and the lovely hilltop villages of Mijas and Benhavis are 30 mins. Car hire is not essential as shops, restaurants, beach bars/clubs are all within walking distance. We highly recommend this apartment for couples and families with children.

Another glowing review from one of returning guests giving insightful details of our apartments... Our beach front location is a fantastic spot to holiday in when looking for a variety of entertainment or just a get away haven, either choice, you will be surrounded by luxury and comfort while relaxing in our opulent and well equipped apartments or just lying by the pool amongst the tropical gardens taking in the sea breeze.
Entertainment is vast and varied...water sports, day trips, cinema, casino, restaurants, water parks, dolphin expeditions, night clubs etc - we have collated a whole directory of "things" to do on the Costa del Sol for our guests to peruse on their arrival in to our apartments.
Transportation is also varied.... local bus stops, readily available taxis can be arranged by our 24 hour concierge, reliable car hire company and Airport taxi service information is included in our booking process and best of all, we include a designated car parking space in our secure underground garage....with parking spaces being at a premium in this location, we INCLUDE YOUR DESIGNATED PARKING SPACE free of charge. Cots and high chairs are also included free of charge.
