Great apartment, great location

5 of 5
Great apartment in a fantastic location. Communication with the owner, Theresa, was spot on. Apartment was very clean & sue/Ann were very helpful when checking in. The swimming pools are good & there is plenty to do in the area (consisting of eating, drinking & shopping). As a family of 4 we would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Lovely apartment, well appointed, central location

5 of 5
Marvellous, central, well appointed and comfortable apartment, great wifi (37Mbps), lively location. Convenient for everything - the Old Town, beaches, museums, art galleries, markets, shops, eateries etc. Excellent folder provided by owner of helpful sightseeing info, maps, leaflets, transport info - I felt immediately at home and well orientated. Very, very good communications with owner throughout the stay, flawless check-in and check-out. My first stay in Málaga city - its culture and beautiful Baroque architecture are a joy!
