There are 2 popular developments situated on the east side of the marina in Puerto Banus, Playa Rocio, situated directly next to the Dali sculpture of a rhino and the main road that takes you to the Lavante beach. The second is Granados De Banus, a more expensive development created by the well known developer Espacio, whose office is also in Banus.
This complex is a good option for those seeking a long term rental in Puerto Banus as it is beachfront and has a lovely pool area and gardens looking straight at the Levante beach and the La Pesquera restaurant. 2 bedroom apartments can be found here for around the €1100 mark and 3 beds are often marketed for €1300-1400. The apartment qualities are of a decent standard and many have sea views. Bear in mind for the figures I have given above, you could be added as much as another 30% on top of that for a clear sea view.
Los Granados De Banus
This is a well kept, higher level complex that has a whole host of amenities including an indoor heated pool, gymnasium and a 24 hour security desk at the front of the development. Prices for this development are considerably more than Playa Rocio, this long term rental in Granados de Banus is currently being marketed for €6,800, obviously is has amazing views and is pretty near the sea. For a 2 bedroom apartment without views, you would pay approximately €2,500 per month.
Granados Banus is a well known development and the developer, Espacio has a long history of building high quality developments here in the Marbella area and also Estepona. They are always built to a high standard. Granados de Banus is no exception, the interiors however in some apartments can look a little dated, as they have grey marble and older appliances and work surfaces in the kitchens.
