The apartment complex is a gated community with good security. You will not get in unless they permit it.
The complex is of a residential nature with three pools but we only ever found 2. It is set back from the town quite a bit (approx 1/2 mile) and the terraine is a series of steep hills so a car is essential. We booked through Malaga Car Hire at the airport and only paid arround

We stayed here in July 2002. In one word FANTASTIC.
We had a two bedroom townhouse, that was genuinely a home away from home. Downstairs was the livingroom, diningroom and kitchen with all mod cons (washer/drier/dishwasher/microwave etc etc etc).
Upstairs, we had a master bedroom with ensuite and balcony, which also had a spiral staircase leading to the rooftop terrace. There was a twin bedroom with another full bathroom.
There are three pools (one indoor), extensive gardens, big waterfall......... I could go on. The pool on the upper level is reached through an avenue of beautifully manicured trees.
This place is truly gorgeous, and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
The accomodation is located beside loads of golf courses, so it is about a 5/10 minute drive into Puerto Banus, so I would say a hire car is essential.
The area is mostly residential, and there weren't many holidaymakers staying here. There seem to be all different types of studios / apartments / townhouses within the complex, so I think we lucked out. There are some local shops and a couple of restaurants within walking distance.
I have marked 5 points for hotel staff and entertainment, but only because there isn't a "not applicable" score. This is more of a private rental type of thing, rather than a hotel/apartment complex. I can't remember the apartment being cleaned, but they did empty your bin every day. There were plenty of towels provided, but I think they expect you to use the washer/drier and recycle. As I've said, this was a home away from home, so this was not a problem. They also provide bathrobes, but no pool towels.
