“I thought the apartment was absolutely excellent and extremely comfortable and well equipped. We thought it was a great place to have a base and would certainly consider going back again The staff in the country club were really very nice” Ms. AW, Middlesex UK
“The apartment is perfectly new, beautifully furnished, the Costa Galera is a
very new complex with excellent facilities. Close to the beach, beautiful
views of the mountains. This was our most perfect stay in the Costa del Sol
(in more than 10 years of spending our holiday here!) A++ Very recommended!'

Fantastic Family Holiday in Albayt Resort Estepona

The apartment was excellent - even though we spent very little time there, it was a great base for our various excursions to Benalmedina, Gibraltar, Ronda & Estepona. Our in-laws were just down
the road behind the Bahia Dorada complex for our first week in their own villa, so much of our time was spent there.
The information provided by Tom (the owner) was excellent & went a long way towards making our stay a very pleasant one. We had very few dealings with the staff of the resort, but they were generally excellent - the English guy on reception in particular.
There were a few minor niggles during our stay (e.g. the kettle blew a fuse and had to be replaced) but Tom was in constant contact with us by 'phone and e-mail to ensure that any issues were quickly resolved to our complete satisfaction.
Tom was also very proactive in seeking feedback from us after we returned home to see if we had any suggestions as to how the holiday experience we had could be improved.
All in all the Tom deserves credit for making all stages of the holiday go so smoothly. We would have no hesitation in returning to the apartment and would recommend it to our friends and relatives.

Great location, quiet resort for Easter break
Review Submitted: April 14, 2010 Date of Stay: April 2010
Our family of 3 enjoyed our stay at this spacious apartment. The garden areas were well kept and the resort at Easter was blissfully quiet. We enjoyed Selwo - the animals are, mainly, in safari type conditions and are visited on foot or via jeeps - a great experience. Although pricey, if you buy a 3 ticket option ( for selwo animals park, selwo marina and the cable cars to the birds of prey) it works out at around 11 euros each for each attraction - and selwo is a day in itself! Cable car takes 15 mins to the birds of prey ( in Benalmadena, as is the Selwo marina) and is not for those with a fear of heights!
Didn't have time for the beaches! Loved Mijas and Nerja caves ( the best we have been into!). OK, Nerja is 2 hours away by car, but on fast, good roads a great day out, esp as you can stop on your return to walk the castle at Fuengirola and shop at the many malls!
Gibralter is great for tax free shopping ( fill up with fuel there - 84p a litre!) and the apes are amusing and cheeky!
Great shopping, also, at La Canda Mall and great pizza and meatballs at La Laguna mall on the beach in Estepona You pass it on the A7 and it is 10 mins from the apartment.
Having a garage for our car was a bonus and wifi acces at the hotel reception. Free sat tv good, too, for the odd dull day.
There was adequate comfy seating in the apartment and the large kitchen area was equipped with a washing machine and dishwasher, microwave and large fridge/freezer. Mercadona supermarket, good and in expensive, was 5 mins drive away, Estepona direction.
We drove down, and so visited the wolf park in the mountains near Ronda. Great drive with breathtaking scenery and some of the greenest fields i have ever seen.
All in all, a good holiday. Many thanks, Tom, for all your help.
Very nice apartment.

The apartment itself was really great. The view at the mountain in the north also.
The beaches in Estepona are really nice!
Salwo-Adventure isn't worth going there, due to the fact that it's extremely expensive and the animals don't live in good conditions, we were really sorry about them.
Gibraltar was very pleasant, also Malaga!
