My issue is that the bus was not labeled as a 'Damas' bus. It had a completely different sign, and the actual bus with a 'Damas' logo was empty. There was no staff or proper sign at the station. We had to ask lots of folks and bus drivers to find our bus. Only after talking to the exact bus driver did we know the bus was the right one. Almost missed it!
Everything was great apart from the driver did not accept the e-ticket and wanted us to open the email showing the Damas ticket. There was a language barrier but we got there in the end with the help of Google Translate.
The trip went according to schedule, and the buses were comfortable. HOWEVER, the requirement by the driver, that we have a paper ticket, almost caused a nervous breakdown. We booked onlone, had the booking reference number, and our passports and names, but no paper ticket (or smart phone). Only the intervention of a member of staff in the Estaccion Ronda resolved the matter and secured our return journey. Perhaps some additional training for drivers so that they look for internet bookings at the bottom of their printed list would prevent this problem.
Sadly when we arrived I had noticed I had lost my credit cards. In case I had left them in the hotel and after the driver said I could transfer the ticket to the 8am bus we decided to return to the hotel to see if I had left my credit cards there. Upon returning to get the 8am bus to Malaga we were told quite abruptly that we had to pay again, not having any other option we paid. So I am very disappointed in the driver who said we could swop buses. A refund of the tickets would be appreciated, but I suppose that's wishful thinking. Would I use Avanza again NO.
