"To reach the Macdonalds Dona Lola resort by bus which bus stop do I need from your excellent list of bus stops between Marbella and Fuengirola?
I wrote back to Kevin:
" Hi Kevin, thank you very much for your kind words.
The bus stop you need is the Garu Calahonda bus stop. It's the next one after the Riviera del Sol bus stop travelling from Fuengirola to Marbella. I took this photo from the footbridge over the A7 / CN340. You will see the Doña Lola sign on the sea side of the road. The Macdonalds Doña Lola resort is about 150 metres from the Garu Calahonda bus stop.
The traffic coming towards the bridge is travelling from Marbella to Fuengirola and the traffic travelling in the other direction is going to towards Marbella. There's a great little bar called Al-Alcasur at the bottom of the footbridge on the sea side of the road. If you are pulling your suitcase, or coming back from shopping in Fuengirola from the Fuengirola bus station, just stop there, have a cold beer and a plate of fish, enjoy the pines, the noise, the smells and just relax a while. You're in Spain, take it easy, that's why you're here.
Have a great trip and use the pedestrian overpass bridges at all times! The traffic on the A7 is lethal.
I hope you have a really good visit to Macdonalds Doña Lola. The weather is brilliant at the moment. (This was back in December of 2008)
Best wishes from Marbella Mike"
P.S. The next stop is the Las Postas Calahonda main bus stop with a taxi rank right next to it.
