Mediterranean-style, hilltop apartments in the Sitio de Calahonda area of Mijas, 4 km from the resort centre and 15 km from Fuengirola.
Guests can soak up the sun in the garden, and enjoy a refreshing dip in the outdoor swimming pool.
This three-floor hotel features 38 apartments with simple, light decor and provincial pine furnishings. All apartments have balconies or terraces overlooking the gardens and pool, separate living areas and fully equipped kitchens with washing machines, microwaves and refrigerators.
Check in is to be made at the nearby Crown Resorts Club Marbella reception.
Malaga International Airport.
El Porton is located high up in Calahonda so offers stunning views of the Meditarranean and Gibraltar.

Accommodation, location and amenities were fine for independent travellers with their own transport. The balcony is snug. Equipment is just enough for 4.
However, this block of apartments is no longer connected to the Crown Resorts which means,
check in/out is done via Crown Resorts but El Porton does not receive any cleaning or service during your stay. (Washing machine walked when I washed the sheets!) It would have been better if this was made clear when booking the holiday. The staff at Crown Resorts gave mixed messages, as 3 separate enquiries resulted in different information from "yes you can use all Crown Resort facilities" to "Nada, you get nothing".
I managed to persuade staff to let me leave baggage after check out for the last day. They hesitantly offered use of the facilites for the day - we did not miss out on anything.... El Portor had a better pool than Crown Resorts.
Would recommend this place making sure the traveller is aware of the above.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
