Mediterranean bliss

  • 5 of 5

Excellent and good value for a luxury retreat by the Mediterranean Sea. The complex is like a private little town in itself with its own restaurants located in the large gardens, the chemist for sun lotions and supermarket in the corner, and the moment you step out have absolutely all sorts of restaurants, shopping and entertainments. We really enjoyed our time with our two young children 3 and 5 at the time, having everything a walk away made our holiday stress free. We also used the kids club where Chloe and Sara had swimming lessons and joined dance school which gave us a few hours to ourselves. We stayed in Apt 2 with large terrace which was super for us all as the kids felt free to play with space and we could lay in the sun or dine.

The property is well maintained clean and it better than you will expect.

Carolina is friendly and helpful.

Would definetly recomend

Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We love a playas del Duque and have been coming every year for the past 5 years every December, we spend Christmas and New Years in Puerto Banus. The atmosphere is friendly and the buildings are decorated lovely. We have stayed in many of Carolina's apartments and are always happy with the property and the service. Would defibetly recommend platas del duque but above all Carolina's dedicated and professional service, she is generous with her own time and always gives great recommendations of where to go wether for outings, dining or entertainment, her friendly advice has been very useful throughout our stays.

The complex is without a doubt the best in Puerto Banus, however a trusting company is quite rear in Spain so make sure you do rent through a reputable one like Solobanus.

Muy agradable

  • 5 of 5

Hemos pasados unos días realmente agradables en Playas del Duque. El ambiente es glamuroso pero familiar y agradable. El apartamento preparado como un hotel de cinco estrellas todo impecable, limpio, mejor de lo que esperamos. El trato con los conserjes, la seguridad y los camareros de los restaurantes muy respetuoso y agradable. El servicio de Solobanus y su directora Carolina inmejorable con toda facilidad. Los jardines y accesos a la playa y Puerto Banus una delicia, el supermercado y la farmacia a mano- es que realmente no se puede pedir más, también nos acompañó el tiempo.

Han sido unos días estupendos de relajamiento y disfrute.

Estamos encantados- gracias Carolina!

PLACES OF LOCAL INTEREST

PUERTO BANUS: Puerto Banus is located between Marbella and San Pedro, on the Costa del Sol’s Golden Mile, renowed for its luxurious marina and the many ludicrously expensive yachts, associated limited edition Sport Cars and their both famous and infamous owners, friends, guests, bodyguards, models and hangers-on.

You can sit and pass the time at one of the numerous bars and restaurants in the Port and indulge in a celebrity people watching experience, the likes of which has little equal anywhere in the world.

The port has steadily grown and now features a casino, commercial shopping centres (Marina Banus, Cristamar) and the large department Store El Corte Ingles where you can find anything from a large supermarket, to clothes whether designer or other, electronics, furniture, anything you may require.

Also a multi cinema with fildms shown with their original soundtrack.

If nightlife is what you are looking for then Puerto Banus is the place to be, with its choice of alfresco bars, piano bars and night clubs.

During the day time the Port is a shopper’s dream with a dozen of the worlds famous fashion houses featured, in addition to other small shops and boutiques.

You can also relax before a full evening’s entertainment on one of the most beautiful beaches while sipping sangria.

Every Saturday morning at Puerto Banus you can visit the popular street market where you can pick up all sorts of bargains.

MARBELLA: The Distric of Marbella stretches from Cabopino to San Pedro, covers 27 Kilometres of Coastline and has some of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol.

The town of Marbellas offers a typical Andalucian ambience but is renowned for its international jet-set scene. You can stroll around the beautiful gardens or the narrow streets of Marbella’s romantic Casco Antiguo (old town), steeped in history and so typically Andalucian.

Marbella is comprised of the old town, commercial centre, beach-front and pleasure port. The renowed Puerto Banus is so close by, set around the marina, where some of the most magnifecent yachts are moored.

Marbella including the Puerto Banus area are the biggest shopping centre south of Madrid where you can buy anything from a pair of sandals to the most advanced computer systems in todays world market.

You can walk the streets of Marbella and Puerto Banus and find yourself in a place whose designer boutiques sell more than their sister shops on Rodeo Drive (Los Angeles). There are vast shopping malls, smaller boutiques and big department stores; street markets, galleries and sport shops.

SAN PEDRO DE ALCANTARA: San Pedro de Alcantara is in an ideal situation just less than 10Km from all the glitz and glamour of Marbella, yet only a few minutes drive from the Sierra de Ronda Mountain range. San Pedro is a refreshing unspoilt Pueblo with a special appeal of its own.

The Central Plaza has a parish church and surrounding narrow streets are packed with cafes, bars, restaurants and small shops. The street market is held on Thursdays and is well worth a visit for the shopper looking for bargains or even local souvenirs to take back home.

Take a stroll from the town centre to the beachfront along the Avenida de Marques del Duqero; is a very attractive avenue flanked with palm trees. Continue on along the wide promenade and visit one of the many excellent “Chiringuitos” (Beachside restaurants) specialising in fish dishes, however there are always options.

Visit Bora Bora, one of the best beach clubs on the coast, with its superb restaurants, bar and all the usual beach facilities.

If you are visiting in the autumn, the last summer fair “feria” in the whole of Andalucia is held here on the second week of October. Other places to discover include the Paleochristian basilica Church by the sea and the Third Century Roman Baths (Las Bovedas).
