For Kevin and I's Springbreak we decided for our first part to travel to Malaga, Spain. We stayed in a resort right off the beach and it was extremely relaxing. Weather was great in the 70s and majority of the days being sunny for an exeception of a few cloudy and windy ones.
rode cab to condo
Malaga is a beautiful little town on the Spanish Riviera (if thats what you call it) in Costa Del Sol. We stayed just minutes from the old town/shopping district, packed with shops and restaurants. This part of the town (the restaurants at least) stays busy until well past midnight. One night we at dinner at 11:30pm... and then found Ice cream …
Imogen and I were left to ourselves in Malaga; all our tour guides had left and Ruben was at work.
We made our way into the city for lunch, after all the greasy tapas I was quite excited to devour my Mexican salad at the port. It was quite a cultural experience; the restaurants were all joined in one section, offering us Greek, Indian, Mexican or Argentinian Grill.
Malaga has a rich Moorish past with a well preserved Alcazaba in its ...
... like I wasn't allowed to use the next two tickets here, he was saying that they were for the hotel bar or something. Sarah walked over, she thought that he thought I was underage or something haha. Eventually he said you want these two in here…? Yep.. He made our drinks, then he only put one on the bar and told Sarah could have it but I wasn't allowed one.. haha. Again we had no idea what he was on about, then he said haha just joking and put the other drink on the bar. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews CLC Marina del Sol Mijas
We went on a "free 1 week holiday" not so free it did cost us approx 200.00 for 3 adults and 1 child but still a bargain. We were very dubious about the whole thing and expected very little, so what a lovely surprise when we got there. A taxi picked us up from the airport (38 euros) and delivered us to the reception area of club la Costa. The reception staff were very nice and gave us maps of the resorts and lots of other information we may need. We were then escorted by porters to our apartment. The 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroom apartment was beautiful and had a wonderful view of the med. Do be warned though, this resort is very hilly and spread out, there is a small train which travels round the resort which you can hop on at any of the stops, it was a life saver. There was a welcome pack of bread, butter, milk, eggs, tea, coffee etc for us and the apartment also had a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, microwave, huge fridge/freezer, ironing board, need i go on, bascially it was like been at home, so if you do visit this resort pack 2 sets of clothes as you can wash to your hearts content.
we visited club la costa after winning a weeks holiday, it was a nice relaxing holiday bit boring though. we went to a complimentary breakfast and tour with a club la costa rep this was their opportunity to sell us their timeshare we were told we would be there for 90 minutes we were there 3 hours and had made it clear from the outset we were not interested the rep was nice throughout. apart from that one day we were not bothered by any club lacosta staff and were free to enjoy our holiday. the restaurants are overpriced so its worth the horrible walk into fuengirola for food. as we wentin april there was no entertainment and most of the bars etc were closed. the apartments have satelite tv so u can amuse urself with that after dinner the apartments were nice, clean and have everything you need. it is worth taking club la costas offer as it is a cheap holiday.
we stayed at mijas with club la costa + really enjoyed it. very clean and staff very friendly. we have stopped there three times and are planning to go back in may. well we have booked for may so we are going.we joined a three year taster which is a good way to see how it all runs. and yes the reps do come and see you and take you out for breakfast and show you around the complex, but hey when it comes to life time joining all as you have to say is no. the good thing about it as well you only have to travel light, as you have everything you need in your appartment, short of nothing. it's quite central for visiting places like fuengirola, benalmadena,torri. you are better going into fuengirola to book all your trips,(gibraltar) it's half the price. there is a little booth at the bus station book there.you can catch the train in fuengirola to benalmadena torri ,airport malaga if you do always get a return.
Well, we "won" a seven night luxury holiday with Club La Costa, which eventually materialised (after a LOT of red tape - it cost us around £180 for two, which isnt bad!) and we arrived on 20 March. Due to a delay we arrived later than expected, but a Club La Costa agent was waiting for us and drove us to the complex - charged 40 euros.
Went on this holiday with my boyfriend after taking up one of the Club La Costa offers. We prepared ourselves for the worst but were more than pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious, modern, well equipped and cleaned to a high standard. The balcony overlooked the pool area and the Med. in the distance. Saw some beautiful sunrises / sunsets...
Only peacefull - When reps go home
We stayed here and thought it was going to be great. It was a nightmare. We paid a lot of money but were hounded and insulted by the reps, who thought we were easy game. We were not part of a promotion. The prices were absolutely rediculious. £10 for a chicken breast with a spoon of vegetables, the entertaiment ended very, very early - as like everyone out of the way and in bed.
The atmostphere was tiring and bland, the resort is miles from anything. Go here if you like being bullied and insulted by the awfull staff.
No wonder no one wants to buy into their scheme of buying points anymore.

screaming kids its fine . and we didnt go school holiday time? so

This is a great resort, we had a very wonderful time. The units are nice, the views are outstanding of the Mediterranean and the mountains. We stayed in March, weather was nice, usually 70's for the highs. The beach is a short hike away. On site there is a well equipped grocery store (SuperMercado), with prices that were very competitive with the larger stores in Fuengirola. Its a hilly complex, so expect a little walking exercise. Pools are plentiful and also well maintained. The small coffee shop/bakery in the main area has wonderful fresh breads and baguettes every morning, be sure and make that part of your daily routine!! Fuengirola nearby has some fun shopping along the beach, parking can be a bit of a chore, I would suggest in any city that you just pay to park in the public ramps, much easier and safer (from not getting dinged standpoint). Be absolutely sure to hit Ronda, Antequerra, and the Alcazaba in Malaga. Skip a restaurant occasionally and just drop into one of Tienda grocery stores (closets : ) ) and grab baguettes, cheese and some Iberian ham, wash it down w/ a cold Cruz Campo for 50 cents and you are set.
Lovely child friendly resort
Just got back from a great holiday at Marina Del Sol. The apartment had everything we needed, including Air Conditioning, and the resort itself was really good.
The restaurants on site were good and there was lots for the kids to do. Each day there was kids activites organised by the resort and most of it was free.
Lots of pools to choose from and in the evening there was quizes and stuff like that.
All the staff were friendly and everywhere you went someone was tidying up and making things look good.
