Sun-drenched self catering by the beach on the Costa del Sol, staying in a village-style, family-friendly resort in a one or two-bedroom apartment


Situated between glitzy Costa del Sol mainstays Marbella and Fuengirola, lower-key Calahonda is a warm and friendly coastal town. It’s here you’ll find Macdonald Dona Lola Resort – a sprawling village-style complex where life is centred around the palm-fringed beachfront swimming pool (there are three in total) and the aptly named La Plaza Beach restaurant.

Up the ante with a game of tennis or gym workout, then wind it right down in the spa. Both on and off-site you’ll find much more to tempt, from world-class golf to organised activities such as local walks, cookery demos, cocktail-making and Spanish lessons. Macdonald Dona Lola Resort has justifiably earned a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

One and Two Bedroom Apartment suites have an understated, neutral decor that will appeal to most tastes, each with a private terrace, bathroom and separate living room. Kitchens are well-equipped and come with dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave.

Open from 9am to 6pm, La Toscana restaurant is located in the centre of the resort and offers both indoor and outdoor dining, with breakfast highly recommended. La Plaza Beach is open from midday until 11pm, serving light lunches and romantic dinners.


The spa comprises an indoor pool, gym, sauna and steam room. Georgy Beauty Butterfly salon, also on site, offers an extensive range of spa treatments including massage, reflexology and beauty treatments.


Macdonald Dona Lola Resort is positioned halfway between the coastal towns of Fuengirola and Marbella, with excellent local transport links between the two. There's also a good variety of shops, bars and restaurants around Calahonda – all within walking distance. Visit glitzy Puerto Banus with its legendary nightlife, check out Malaga, whose old town brims with tapas bars, drive up into the hills of Mijas for fabulous views or visit the famous white town of Ronda.
