We have a delightful 2-bedroom apartment in a quiet, residential area.  The apartment is in Riviera del Sol, on a small, mature, low rise (2 storey) development called Puebla Oliva and is only a five minute walk from the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. The apartment delivers the best of both worlds - guaranteed peaceful sleep yet only minutes from night life and only a 10 minute bus ride from Marbella, Benelmadena, Fuengirola or Torremolinos! Riviera del Sol is between the Calahonda and La Cala Resorts, midway between Fuengirola and Marbella. Although it fast developing, there is little or no building work in this area due to its mainly residential history. The real development is in the improvement of bars, shops and restaurants and it has become a sought after place to buy property and to holiday.
Situated on the coast road (N340), the apartment is a short walk from the beach - with both bridge and underpass for people to cross the main road.  It borders the Miraflores development and its associated golf course. Car hire is available either from the airport or locally and this opens up great opportunities for visiting classic attractions such as Ronda, Mijas, Malaga, Granada, Seville and Gibraltar. For non-drivers there is a superb, regular bus service along the coast and a couple of euros will get you to Marbella or Torremolinos. Close to  the apartment is The Miraflores Restaurant / Country Club (2 minutes walk away, on Avenida del Sol) which is open to users of the apartment - although currently undergoing refurbishment (Apr 2017).  The Restaurant has cabaret in high season. Smart, but quite expensive.  The Sports Bar is only 2 minutes walk along Calle Pollox and across Avenida del Sol and has squash and tennis courts - there's also bowls available at the bowling club next door. The Sports Bar has a swimming pool that is currently drained (Apr 2017) - this may be back in use by the end of the season. Along the coast road are numerous shops, bars and restaurants - and George's Bar on the Avenida del Golf is a strong reccomendation for breakfast! Even better is the Garden Bar which sits between the beach and the N340 - easiest access is via the bridge (turn left at the bottom of Avenida del Sol). There are two supermarkets at the corner of Avenida Polaris and Avenida de Golf, close to JJ's Bar.  There is an OpenCor which is open quite late but is expensive.  The second, a "MAS" supermarket, is in the small shopping mall round the corner in the direction of George's Bar - much cheaper and a much bigger selection of stuff - English and Spanish.   Up the hill, at the top of Avenida del Sol is a third supermarket, bars and a number of restaurants - Indian, Spanish and Italian.
