Riviera del Sol

If you plump for a holiday home in Riviera del Sol, close to the popular resorts of Fuengirola and Marbella, you will find everything you need for a family holiday close to hand.

The newly developed urbanisation is situated within a few minutes walk to the local beach and has supermarkets, bars, restaurants, golf and leisure facilities and good bus links to the other towns and urbanisations along this stretch of coastline.

Around Riviera del Sol
The urbanisation boasts several small stores, restaurants, bars, an internet cafe, golf and a health club, all within walking distance to the urbanisations apartments and villas. The shops are opposite a very peaceful and popular park (Princess Diana Park) and gardens and there is Opencor supermarket next to the entrance to Riviera, which is open 18 hours per day.

Apart from several small shops, there are two commercial centres: Riviera Plaza and Riviera Comercial, with further restaurants, a chemist, gifts and souvenirs shop, and much more.

Places to visit
The upmarket resort of Marbella is a 15 minute drive away, as is the 200 store shopping and leisure centre of La Canada. Fuengirola is just a 10 minute drive away, with heaps of facilities, great beaches, a zoo, the Mijas Aqua Park, multi-screen cinemas and the Parque Miramar Shopping Centre.

The Crocodile Park at Torremolinos is a 20 minute drive away and the port at Benalmadena is also worth a visit.

Beaches
The beach at Riviera del Sol is usually less crowded and has its own chiringuito (beach restaurant) where they serve food and drinks all day.

Golf
There are numerous golf courses within 20 minutes drive, including the Miraflores Golf Club, in the urbanisation of Miraflores, which is situated next to Riviera del Sol. Calahonda and Cabopino courses are also close by, as is the Mijas Golf Complex.

Climate
Riviera del Sol enjoys a sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and warm winters. Cooling breezes from the sea make the summer heat manageable, temperatures are an average of 32 ºC in summer.

Riviera review

Riviera itself is very small village. The whole area is completely full of houses, appartmens and hotels. between Marbella and Malaga it is very crowded along the coast. But not that much in wintertime......


Costa del Sol reviews

As I said before: pretty crowded and full of houses and appartments. But that is obvious: everyone wants to be in a sunny area! So they all come to the Costa del Sol.

Riviera review

Nice, if you like concrete jungle and sell-out of Spain to (mostly) England. However, if you drive a bit into the heartland of Andalusia, you might just be able to re-find some of the ESSENCE of Spain!


Costa del Sol reviews

We expected a Little bit more 'natural' Environment, but basically found purely commercialized and sold-out concrete. Even to find a solely Spanish Person was difficult. As mentioned above - if you drive a bit into the heartland of Andalusia, you might just be able to re-find some of the ESSENCE of Spain. We are aware, buy the sheer fact of going there, we are part of the Problem!

Riviera review

A lovely area for renting an apartment. Quiet in comparison to neighbouring areas with all amenities close at hand. Nice beaches for sunbathing although pebbles in sea front.


Costa del Sol reviews

I preferred the Riviera del Sol as there were no hotels so less people. Easy to get to other resorts with a hire car. Mijas well worth a visit, as was Ronda although the mountain road is a bit scary.
