About Sylvia Lopez
I am a retired teacher from the south of England and moved here with my family 16 years ago. My wife, who is Spanish, has known this part of Spain for almost all of her life.
Sylvia Lopez purchased this Apartment in 1998
Why Sylvia Lopez chose Estepona
When we decided to buy what was then going to be a holiday home 20 years ago, we spent 6 months viewing various options on the coast however it was only when we discovered El Presidente that we realised that this was the perfect location for us. This was because of its fantastic combination of close proximity to the beach and many restaurants with easy access to Marbella that we knew so well and have always loved. However it also had the added bonus of being a beautiful and peaceful environment away from the constant noise and bustle of the town centre. Our apartment was also substantially larger than any of the others that we had seen, had a lovely corner location on the frontline of our prestigious complex and therefore had a wonderful view of the gardens and main pool. Consequently when five years later we had the opportunity to purchase our neighbour[s apartment, we decided to move down here completely and really enjoy the fabulous climate, lifestyle and environment!

Wonderful Autumn break!
Despite arriving late after some car hire trouble. We were met by Sylvia and Peter at 11:30pm and they were extremely accommodating. We stayed in Modrono 12 apartment and it exceeded our expectations. Clean, bright, great view of the main pool area and very well maintained. We had a great week, very quiet at this time of year, great selection of pools and very central in order to visit lots of surrounding towns and beaches locally within 30 mins drive, or closer if without a car. Thank you to Peter and Sylvia for a lovely week's break.
We were impressed from beginning to end of our stay. The apartment was spacious and clean. Thank you
We really enjoyed our holiday. The choice of pools was great and we always got a tennis court when wanted. We can recommend the Lebanese restaurant nearby and it was relaxing to wander to and along the beech in the evening. Further afield we would recommend visiting Gibraltar and a walk through Puerto Banus was fascinating. We would certainly have no hesitation in recommending a holiday here to others.
Thank you so much for your extremely kind review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in El Presidente and sincerely hope that we will have an opportunity to welcome you and your lovely family back here in the not too distant future.
As you rightly say and as we know ourselves, we are extremely fortunate to be living in such a beautiful and ideally located place with the beach and so many restaurants within a short walking distance, as well as numerous fascinating place to visit in the surrounding area. Certainly the significant community fees that we pay each year are are put to good use in order to maintain our stylish buildings, stunning gardens, wonderful swimming pools and great facilities to the really high standards that residents such as ourselves and our guests can thoroughly enjoy!
Best regards and thanks again,
Peter and Sylvia
Wonderful, wonderful time!
My wife, adult daughter and her 1.5 year old and I spent 11 nights in this wonderful location. Parking within a short walk of the condo. Just what we were hoping for, spacious, comfortable and old-style luxury. Three balconies, very comfortable beds and pool in front and in the back. And a short walk to the beach. The bathrooms were great (would like to have that shower at my house).
We were also wonderfully located between many good markets and tourist sights. A trip up to Ronda was worth the time. And don't miss the restaurant just down by the beach.
Also, the little grocery store, near by, was very handy. And we went to the Robin Hood Pub twice and really enjoyed it.
Peter and Sylvia are great. And off season prices were very reasonable.
El Presidente Apartment
Very impressed with the apartment, very clean, spacious and nicely furnished. We all loved the fact that we could walk straight to the many lovely pools, I can honestly say that El Presidente is definitely one of the better urbanisations in Marbella.(I have been to lots) The lay out is great, location was fantastic, 5 minute walk to the beach and only a short drive to the world famous Puerto Banus. None of us wanted to leave and can't wait to our next trip out. Thumbs up to Peter and Sylvia they couldn't be more helpful. Book now you won't regret it.
El Presidente "Madrono" Apartment
Thank you for a lovely stay and just to say how much we loved El Presidente, the facilities, beautiful gardens and of course the "Madrono" apartament! There was everything we could have wished for - the apartment was very well equipped, with extremely comfortable beds! Our week went just far too quickly!
El Presidente "Kent" - a beautiful apartment
Had a week at the end of May 2009 with my daughters. Could not have been better located, a beautiful apartment, brilliantly kitted out, quiet, very pretty inside and outside. Peter & Sylvia very informative, lovely people. The pool could not have been closer (more pools on site) but our one was probably the quietest due to deeper water so not so child-friendly for the very young ones (although the nearby main pool is!), but for us that was perfect, it was also incredibly clean. Very secure, lovely gardens all over, easy parking. Quick access to Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona & Airport. Excellent supermarket, restaurants everywhere. Would definitely go back.
El Presidente, where we also live, is a wonderful beach-side complex close to Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona and is generally regarded as one of the best complexes on the coast.
We are ideally located away from the turmoil of Puerto Banus and yet it is just an easy five-minute drive along the coast road that separates us. Indeed it would be impossible to find a more spacious and luxurious complex at this price anywhere along the coast and certainly not in Puerto Banus or Marbella where they are much more compactly built.
We are also ideally placed to access the numerous nearby leisure and sporting facilities and to visit the nearby coastal towns of Marbella, San Pedro and Estepona and the inland towns of Ronda, Casares & Benahavis (just ten minutes away and with excellent restaurants) as well as the wonderful cities of Granada, Seville & Cordoba.
Within a short walking distance from the apartment is the beach as well as shops (including a newly opened ALDI supermarket), bars, banks and many excellent restaurants & bars.
