Beach-side penthouse with stunning views

Dona Lola is a self-contained beach-side Gold-Crown holiday Resort with three lovely pools, an inside leisure club (with heated pool, gym, saunas, steam-room, jacuzzi, and snooker room), children's club, tennis courts, mini-market, launderette, and several bars & restaurants.

Dona Lola is ideally situated between Malaga Airport (half an hour drive) and Marbella (ten minute drive). It is only a beach walk to the old fishing village of La Cala one way, and to the lovely marina at Cabopino the other.

The apartments of the Dona Lola resort are set beside the sea amid heavily scented gardens, swaying palms and waterfalls, and in a superb climate which boasts of 320 Sunny days a year !

This spacious 3-bedroom penthouse is air-conditioned, and has superb panoramic and unobstructed views over the sea from its large Southerly facing balcony, lounge, master-bedroom, and showers !

It really is a spectacular vista. From this third (top) floor vantage point, the fishing boats can be seen leaving the beach in the morning, and returning with their catch a few hours later. Ships of all sizes, from cruise ships to giant container-carrying monsters, can be visually followed as they cruise past your apartment.

It's a great place to bird-watch from, as this part of the coast is on a migration route for birds to & from Africa, and some call in for a while ! I've supplied binoculars with which to watch the antics of the diving sea-birds (such as gannets) which you look down upon ! We've even seen dolphins just 200 yards away.

Each of the three individually designed bedrooms have twin beds, making this apartment suitable for families (cot & high-chair & buggy supplied) or 6 single sex golfers.

The apartment has 2 bathrooms, both with powerful shower over bath (one being en-suite to the master bedroom) and a modern well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, giant fridge/freezer, microwave, full-size cooker / hob etc.

The comfortable and characterful lounge / dining room is equipped with satellite television and hi-fi. Interesting lighting adds to the ambience ..... even some of the sea-shells light up !

Wifi is available throughout the apartment at no additional cost.

The Dona Lola resort offers an extensive range of sports and leisure facilities, both indoor and outdoor.
The main outdoor pool starts at a shallow end safe for youngsters, and then meanders, right by the sea and under 2 beautiful white bridges, before reaching the deep end!

The beach is just a few steps down from the loungers around the pool.

An additional "adult only" heated outdoor pool in a lovely sheltered spot near the bar / bistro provides a quieter facility at peak times.

There are two flood-lit tennis courts, and areas for children to socialise, with pool-tables.

There are beach bars within a ten minute walk along the sand in both directions, and several more bars and restaurants on the complex, including Italian, Chinese, Indian, Spanish tapas, and an all-day buffet. Just over the pedestrian bridge there are many more bars, restuarants, cafes, banks, shops of all types, and a chemist.

Coach trips to a wide variety of local attractions such as Ronda, Gibraltar, Fuengirola, and Malaga, can be arranged at the Dona Lola reception.

You can partake of free Spanish lessons, aqua-aerobics classes, and wine-tasting sessions. You could join in the fun of a French boules, five-a-side football, or table-tennis competition. Yes, something for every age. And there's free evening entertainment too.

The Costa del Sol (or Costa del Golf as many Spanish road signs proclaim!) is known as the 'golfer's paradise', and deservedly so. As well as the weather (320 days of sunshine a year!) the many courses designed by famous professionals entice golfers to this area. There are thirty courses within a twenty minute drive. There is even one within walking distance. It's a magnificent place to play golf throughout the year, but more particularly between November and March, when the temperatures are more suitable. (You won't have to hide from the Sun under your golf umbrella). Rounds at most courses can be booked through our reception, on (0034) 952 932477. Ask to speak to Aemon Powell, the local golf-expert. (He writes articles for many European golf magazines.)
