A nice house in a great position with the (black sandy) beach literally yards away across a not too busy road. The owner kindly allowed us to check in slightly earlier and stay slightly later than specified, due to our flight times. The cab company he recommended for the airport journeys was very efficient and competitively priced. If you want a busy resort, this is not the place for you, but there are local shops and restaurants, "Antonio's" just around the corner was our favourite. We could have used some local information as to bus times, shops, restaurants, emergency services etc. and instructions on how to use the appliances (television, hob, etc.) would have been useful. However, despite having probably the least sunny and wettest week in Malaga for ages, a good time was had by all.
Fermin and Ana Maria had taken the time to buy some basic provisions in order to save us going to the supermarket on the first day, which was a lovely touch. The apartment is lovely and you have your own little swimming pool to use exclusively during your stay. The apartment also has air conditioning which is a priceless when trying to sleep on a warm summer night. They advise that you get a hire car as the apartment is right on the top of the hill “ La cima de la colina”. We walked up the hill quite a few times during our stay and it is great exercise, though not for the faint hearted. The bus service into Malaga from the bottom of the hill is excellent and only costs 1.7 euros each, the 160 bus being the most common. A taxi back up the hill costs 6-7 euros and is a must if you have sampled a few beers in the town. There is a nice little square in Cala Del Moral just next to the main road and there are plenty of bars to choose from where you can also get some tapas etc. I can speak a little bit of Spanish so got by in Cala Del Moral with ease but most of the bar staff can speak a tiny bit of English, so you don’t have to worry about that. We hired a car for our stay and had a drive down to Nerja for the the day. It only takes 30 minuets and it’s lovely. They even let you park you car in their massive garage, which again is a lovely touch.
